Swain Hall Phase II bid awarded to Minot company
Minot State University will be working closely with Mackley Construction, of Minot, in the next step in renovating Swain Hall. A bid opening for the Swain Hall Project Phase II was conducted, and according to state regulations, the lowest bidder was awarded the $885,000 contract.
"We’re very pleased to be working closely with a reputable, local construction company," said Roger Kluck, Minot State director of facilities. "Having Mackley Construction on board gives Minot State just what is needed to keep this project on schedule. They bring years of experience and we’re happy to be keeping these construction dollars in the region to further strengthen our economy."
Instead of breaking up the larger project into general, mechanical and electrical components, Mackley Construction will take charge of all three parts of the four-month phase.
This segment of the Swain Hall construction project will include demolition of existing space as well as foundation and structural work for the new internal floors to help stabilize the exterior walls when the bleachers are removed.
As part of the project, additional space for construction activities is needed surrounding Swain Hall. Motorists are to be advised that the west end of the road that loops around Hartnett Hall will be closed. In addition, parking immediately to the north of Swain Hall will be unavailable during this period. Please pay close attention to new signage surrounding this project and drive carefully in this area as construction workers will be present.
