Los Alamos residents get ready. Construction for Diamond Drive Phase 3 could be right around the corner.

During Tuesday night’s county council meeting, a motion will be presented to council asking that a bid in the amount of $4,909,516, plus applicable gross receipts tax, be awarded to RMCI Inc. for the construction of Diamond Drive Phase 3.

Along with the bid, the motion asks that a Diamond Drive Phase 3 budget in the amount of  $6,868,447 be established and that councilors approve an associated budget revision, moving $208,681 from Phase 2 remaining funds to increase the Phase 3 roadwork budget from $4,330,000 to $4,538,681.

Six bids were received in response to the bid for Phase 3 that was put out by the county. They ranged in amounts from $4,909,516 to $6,637,456 for both the utility and roadway work, not including gross receipts tax. The low bidder was RMCI.

Though they did not work on the first two phases of Diamond Drive, RMCI, constructed the Eco Station for Los Alamos County last year. The contractor that did the work on Phases 1 and 2 was AS Horner, based in Albuquerque.

According to its website, Albuquerque-based RMCI provides general contracting services throughout the Southwest for both public and private sector owners.
