The town’s 2020 budget includes funding to complete improvements to the 1500 Coalton Road building.
During the request for qualifications process, the town received eight submittals from different firms.
According to the staff report, the bid amount for OZ is $282,580. Other firms that submitted included Rodwin Architecture with $175,000, Studio Completiva with $29,234 which did not include pricing for all phases of work, and WORKSHOP8 for $160,850.
