Ray Martin on this project.
Bellevue West Auditorium – On July 22nd the district received three base bids for the Bellevue
West auditorium project. The low bidder was Midwest DCM in the amount of approximately
$16M. Mr. Gladbach is working with the contractor to get a more detailed spreadsheet on how
the cost broke down for the bid submitted. Mr. Gladbach and the district administration continue
discussions on how to proceed with the project. There will be three plans presented during the
September 13th Board meeting to determine if the bid should be accepted, reject the bids and
possibly re-bid at a later date should construction cost drop, or award the project to work with the
low bidder to try to trim costs within the bid to get the project cost down.

the Frank Kumor Career Center until the Bellevue West auditorium bids are finalized. This will
determine how much funding will be available.

Bellevue West – Mr. Gladbach reported there has been delays in the Bellevue West roof project
due to weather. A coordination meeting took place with Bradco to determine a plan on how to get
the project back on schedule. Mr. Gladbach and the project manager from Bradco continue to work
with the school administration for an ongoing phasing plan so there will be minimal impact on
student learning. The contractor anticipates the majority of the roof work will be completed by the
end of September.

Stonebrook Exteriors for the partial roof replacement at Bellevue East. This was due to material
shortages and since pricing could not be guaranteed for the project. Mr. Gladbach has completed
due diligence and found it would be best to re-solicit bids, since there is a long lead time for
delivery of materials. The district will ask for approval at the September 13th Board meeting for
GP Architecture to re-solicit bids for the project. The anticipated start of the project would be

expected completion date is undetermined at this time pending the arrival of materials.
