Work is set to begin soon on a new weight training facility for Northview High School.
The $625,510 bid was awarded to R.D. Ward Construction Company, the lowest of nine bidders. Other bids ranged from $669,400 to $836,300.
The Escambia County School Board approved the weight training facility back at their January 22, 2013, meeting, letting a $69,913 contract with DAG Architects in Pensacola for architectural and engineering services.
The new building will be about 3,500 square feet. The building will include one weight room, coaches’ offices, storage and accompanying restrooms. The construction budget will be funded with local option sales tax monies.
The new weight training facility will be constructed near the main building where outdoor basketball courts are currently located. There is no timetable in place for the completion of the project.
