Contract for Grading Underway

At their regularly scheduled meeting on September 2, the Board of Education authorized the Superintendent and Chairman of the Board to enter into a contract with Eastern Structures, LLC of Mocksville, NC to begin the rough grading of the new high school site, contingent upon funding approval by the Board of Commissioners. The Davie County Board of Commissioners approved the funding for the project at their meeting on September 2 as well, therefore, the project is moving forward as scheduled. The engineer’s estimate of the rough grading was $2.8 million. Eastern Structures’ bid was received last Thursday at $2,632,000, well below the estimated budget for this phase of the project. There were four other bids received and we are pleased that the lowest responsible bidder is a well-qualified local company, and that the project came in under budget. In addition, Eastern Structures, represented by Phillip Shore, has a long history in Davie County, including the grading for North Davie Middle School adjacent to the new high school site. The rough grading project is scheduled to begin on September 15.
