C.D. Smith Construction is the lone bidder for the main contract to oversee the second phase of the construction of a new science and nursing building at the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh.
In a letting that closed on Wednesday, the Fond du Lac-based contractor submitted an $18.2 million offer for phase two of UW-Oshkosh’s Clow Hall renovation. The state Department of Administration has not yet awarded the contract.
Work is expected to get underway this year on the project, which will overhaul 87,000 square feet of classrooms and laboratory space in the building. The project would also provide about 12,000 square feet for a dean’s suite, offices and other functions.
Lawmakers authorized renovations to the university’s Clow Science Center and Nursing Education Building, completed in 1970, in 2011. The first part of the project wrapped up in 2016, and the State Building Commission approved the second phase of the project in October.
The DOA also received bids for environmental work on the project on Wednesday. Madison-Based Dirty Ducts Cleaning & Environmental submitted a low bid of $193,430 for the project, beating out six rivals.
State officials earlier this month picked various contractors to oversee mechanical, electrical, plumbing and fire suppression work on the project.
Kaukauna-based Elmstar Electric won a $4.4 million electrical contract for the Clow Hall work. Sure-Fire, of Horicon, will perform the needed HVAC work under a $3 million contract. North American Mechanical, of Windsor, won a $460,000 plumbing contract on the project, and Appleton-based Fireline Sprinkler will do fire suppression work under a $285,000 contract.Follow @natebeck9
