One Door Polk bid let for GNTC

The Standard Journal - - LOCAL - By KEVIN MYRICK Editor

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.
