SFCC Releases Architectural Drawings For New Construction Projects
State Fair Community College has released architectural drawings for a proposed residence hall, agriculture and transportation center.
The SFCC Board of Trustees approved the construction bid on a new $13 million residence hall Jan. 4 during a special session.
Keith Acuff, VP of Business, introduced the board to Wade Horn, executive vice president and COO of Professional Contractors and Engineers (PCE), 5900-C, North Tower, Columbia.
Horn told the board his company has been in business since 1989 and has done construction work for other colleges in the area and recently opened a new office at Lake of the Ozarks, where condos are being built.
Horn said his company is currently doing security upgrades at seven Sedalia District 200 schools.
He noted that 11 local contractors are involved with the construction of the SFCC new residence hall.
“We did our due diligence, we reached out, we love to use local contractors … Rob (Rollings) helped us out as well, so it worked out well,” Horn told the board.
The board then accepted a base bid from PCE of $13,667,000.
“You will not be disappointed in these guys,” Rollings told the board, adding that some of them have worked together for over 20 years. Rollings said the college was getting the residence hall project for about $259 per square foot. “This is a good, solid number from a good, solid company.”
He added that he would be in contact with the board on a weekly basis during the construction period.
SFCC President Dr. Brent Bates said there is no official groundbreaking ceremony planned at this time.
