Pine-Richland School District is back in the construction business.
The school board Tuesday awarded $26.8 million in contracts to nine
companies that will expand and renovate the crowded Pine-Richland High
School at 700 Warrendale Road in Pine.
The entire cost of the project will be about $32 million to $33
million once "soft costs" are added, said Robert G. Naugle, a principal
with Eckles Architecture and Engineering. He explained that soft costs
include architect and construction manager fees, insurance, furniture
and financing costs.
Kusevich Construction of Etna was awarded the $15.2 million contract
for general construction by the Pine-Richland School Board, which also
awarded eight other contracts.
