The San Marcos Consolidated ISD Board of Trustees will consider three items regarding the district’s administration building project during Tuesday’s regular meeting.
The board will discuss and take possible action to select the rank of competitive sealed proposals for the administration building project.
According to the board’s agenda packet, SMCISD’s administration accepted competitive sealed proposals for the new administration office project. An administration committee independently evaluated and ranked each proposal, ultimately ranking Noble General Contractors, LLC the highest.
Each proposal was ranked by price proposal, including alternates, general experience, general firm information and reputation, and proposed personnel. Noble General Contractors, LLC received a 96.8 grade out of 100. The estimated cost for the project, according to Noble General Contractors, LLC. would be $7,411,100.
Administration proposes that the board approve the ranking of proposed contractors for the new administration office building project and accept all alternates.
The trustees will also consider and take possible action to approve a construction contract with the top-ranked proposer/contractor for the ACC building, which is anticipated to be the new administration office.
Administration recommends that the board approve the contract with Noble General Contractors, LLC.
