Selection committee formed as the Louisville School District continues to prepare to bring a new bond issue before voters.
The Cassgram reports the committee’s work is to “evaluate the proposals received from firms in response to the request for proposals for the position of ‘Construction Manager at Risk,’” according to the (pending) March board of education minutes.
Included in the same motion was the selection of the construction delivery method of “Construction Management at Risk.”
Hiring a construction manager before a bond issue is becoming more common in Nebraska, said Louisville Superintendent Ed Kasl last month. “Sometimes you can get a lot better estimate of what things are going to cost by actually getting a construction company onboard.”
