The Los Alamos Board of Education recently approved a contractor to renovate the parking lot for the school administration headquarters at 2075 Trinity Drive.
The winning and lowest bid was awarded to ESA Construction with a base bid of $253,800.
The bid also included alternatives, one for landscaping, another was for a wall and the last was for additional paving near the headquarters’ additional suites located adjacent to it. The school district currently rents those suites to other businesses.
ESA’s bid for the landscaping was $32,200, the wall was $18,700 and the paving was $21,100.
The board then had a discussion on whether or not to approve some or all of the alternatives.
Board approval of all alternatives would put the total cost of the project coming in at $306,800. That number may go down in the future however, since the district has also put a capital request of $64,000 in to the county. As of press time, the current status of that request is not known.
