Further, there will be renovations to the existing multipurpose room to provide a new media center.  New covered walkways are included. New structures will consist of steel frame and CMU walls with gypsum wallboard, masonry veneers, concrete slab floors w/VCT finishes, acoustical ceilings, low sloping metal roofs, metal deck roofs, single ply membrane roofing, and aluminum canopies.  There will also be refurbishing of portions of the existing building that includes paint, lighting and millwork.  Exterior work includes grading, drives, parking areas, concrete curbs and gutters and storm drainage.


Each proposal must be accompanied by a deposit of cash or a certified check on a bank or trust company insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation in an amount equal to not less than five percent (5%) of the proposal; or, in lieu of the deposit of cash or certified check, a bid bond in the above amount.  Successful bidder may not withdraw his bid within thirty days after the opening thereof without forfeiture of his bid bond. In the event of the failure of the successful bidder to execute the contract within ten (10) days after the award or to give satisfactory surety as required by law, the above deposit will be retained by the Owner as liquidated damages.


The Owner reserves the right to accept or reject any and/or all bids, to waive informalities, and to award the contract to other than the low bidder should it be deemed in the best interest of the project or the Owner.
