Wausa Public Schools is nearing key milestones related to its upcoming renovation and construction project.
Construction manager Boyd Jones completed its preparation of the bid package for demolition in early February. Project demolition is expected to begin around early May, and staff will begin moving supplies out of the existing high school in early April. Boyd Jones anticipates crews will begin removing the building’s boiler around mid-April, about the same time pre-demolition efforts will begin. Demolition can begin when students are sent home for the summer.
More specific dates around the full scope of work will be released and shared through local subcontractor outreach events and various media channels as more information becomes available.
“We are so excited to start this process,” said Wausa Superintendent Brad Hoesing. “Although it will be a challenge to move 108 years’ worth of inventory, as well as five classrooms, office space, and students out of the old building, we are willing and able to do so with the knowledge that this building will bring so many additional educational opportunities not just to the students of Wausa, but to the community, as well.”
Regional subcontractors interested in learning more about Wausa Public Schools’ renovation and addition project are encouraged to attend an informational meeting at 2 p.m. on Tuesday, March 12, at the Lied Lincoln Township Library.
Representatives from construction manager Boyd Jones will be present to provide an overview of the project, review the schedule, and introduce the project team. Interested subcontractors will have the opportunity to ask questions about the project, bidding requirements, and the bid process for the project.
Please RSVP to the March 12 event to project manager Brian Dembowski by Thursday, March 7, by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling (402) 660-0010.
Lied Lincoln Township Library is located at 603 E. Norris St., Wausa, NE, 68786.
