WEST GROVE, PA — At the June 3 Board meeting, Avon Grove School District’s Board of School Directors approved contracts for the district’s high school to middle school renovation project.

Contracts were awarded to Bancroft Construction Company, general contractor; Matchline Mechanical, LLC, mechanical contractor; Wescott Electric Company, electrical contractor; and Jay R. Reynolds, Inc., plumbing contractor.

Bids for the project opened on Thursday, May 13 and were lower than expected. This allowed the district to choose alternate bids for additional renovations, including ceiling and lighting replacement with energy-efficient LED fixtures throughout the building. Other finishes include replacing seating, aisle lighting and carpeting in the auditorium, and installing new boilers.

After the alternates were decided, the contractor insurance, bonds and qualifications were thoroughly reviewed to ensure compliance with the project requirements and a recommendation to approve the contracts was forwarded to the board.

The total award for all contracts, including base bids and alternates, is $16,048,601. The total project is $1,377,267 under the projected budgeted amount of $22 million. The high school to middle school renovations are expected to begin in the summer of 2022.
