School speeding up

Good weather boosts site prep for new HHS

Prevailing spring-like weather has speeded up site preparation work for Hartselle’s new high school and the construction phase of the project is still on track to be put out for bids  this week, Hartselle School Board members learned Monday night at their regular March business meeting.
“The site prep schedule is looking a lot better thanks to good weather,” reported Jim Maynard, a project manager with Martin & Colby. “Daylight saving Time is helping, too. I came by there on my way here and crews were still working. About one-half of the pad for the main building is complete.”
Project Manager Brian Moore, also with Martin & Colby, reported that a pre-bid conference two weeks ago went well,
“We had a lot of contractors looking at the plans and we feel really good about where we’re going with the bid process,” he pointed out. “We still plan to put the project out for bids March 21.
When questioned by board member Dr. James Joy about how the loss of 20 work days in December and January is going to affect the timing of construction, Moore pointed out that the anticipated opening date for the new school in August 2012 has not changed.
“We expect to have the construction phase under way by the end of April,” he said.  “After that the weather will not be as much of a factor on scheduling as it is now.”
“I’d like to know where we’re at any given time during construction,” said Monty Vest.  “This would put board members in a better position to answer questions that the public may have about the project.”
