December 18 Update
After bids came in at about double the $275,000.00 budget, the City of Prescott asked for new bids. Their RFP contained virtually no specifications for the remodeling of the Old Clubhouse. They required all bidders to attend a Friday, December 17 pre-bid meeting where they explained they were looking for value engineering to get the work done within budget. Bids are due by 2:00PM on Thursday, December 23rd. I will provide an update following that bid opening.
What the City of Prescott called the “Events Center” in its request for remodeling proposals (commonly known as the Old Clubhouse) received three bids today from general contractors for the entire project (there were also bids from subcontractors for portions of the project). The budget for this project is $275,000.00. The three general contractor bids were:
- Woodruff Construction: $474,950.50
- Sierra Verde: $554,450.000
- B’s Contractors: $536,000.00
Looks like this remodeling project has hit a major pot hole in the road unless the Prescott City Council has significantly more money somewhere to pay for the overage.
