Building Renovation Bid Day

The Downers Grove Public Library successfully opened a second round of sealed competitive bids on its renovation project on February 21.  Multiple firms competed in all ten construction specialty areas.  The construction budget estimate, compiled by Construction Management firm Shales McNutt, was $1,714,477.  The combined total of the ten apparent low bids was $1,711,172, a margin of 0.2%.

Shales McNutt will immediately review the apparent low bids to confirm that they are complete and accurate.  They expect to complete this process and report their work to the Downers Grove Public Library Board of Trustees on Wednesday, March 5.  They will follow this report with recommendations on the awarding of contracts in time for the Board's regular monthly meeting on March 26.

Construction is expected to begin in mid-April, with project completion scheduled for mid-September.
