One Door Polk bid let for GNTC
One Door Polk is moving forward, and according to city manager Bill Fann the next step is to get work started on classroom and office space for Georgia Northwestern Technical College.
Fann said as the renovations for Highland Rivers Health wrap up this month, he looks forward to getting to work on the space for GNTC.
“The Highland Rivers Health project is about 75 percent complete at this point,” Fann told the board during their session on Monday, July 13.
“We’re close to being able to complete a walkthrough with the executive team to ensure all are happy with the results of the work.”
Cheyenne Construction won the first bid for the Highland Rivers Health project.
The GNTC project for two classrooms and an office was awarded to Hubbard Construction of Cedartown, who had the low bid of $29,526.04.
“We made several local construction firms aware of the bid, and only two contractors took a look at the space,” Fann said.
“We only had the one bid, so they won by default.”
Commissioner Jordan Hubbard, who is the son of Hubbard Construction owner Benny Hubbard, was out of town at the time of the meeting and was not present for the vote.
Work on GNTC’s area of One Door Polk in the old hospital on North Main Street began later in the week after the vote. Fann said it is expected to take 2 to 3 weeks to complete.
