LES Building Project


In partnership with Axis Architecture and The Foreman Group, Greater Latrobe has recently released Bid Documents for contractor bidding.  This process entails the District to solicit construction bids from local, regional and national companies for the construction of the New Latrobe Elementary School.

The Bid Phase further involves advertisements for the project scope of work, pre-bid conferences, receipt of bids, an in-depth evaluation of bids and bidders with a subsequent award to the lowest most responsible bidder.  Bidding proposals will be divided into multiple prime contracts, which include, General Trades, Mechanical, Plumbing, Electrical, Roofing, and Food Service.

Bid awards are projected to occur this February followed by a ceremonial ground-breaking.  The community shall look forward to contractor mobilization and actual construction of the building, beginning with site preparation, to begin this spring with opening 2018-2019 School Year!
