The SWTJC Board of Trustees gave the green light on Thursday (Oct. 16) to advertise for bids on the construction project at the Eagle Pass campus.
Contractors interested in bidding on the project should contact architect Tom Ferrell at (361) 854-1967.
Ferrell, a partner in the architectural firm of Ferrell/Brown and Associates in Corpus Christi, presented construction documents for the project, which includes the addition of a new 34,000 square-foot classroom building and a new 4,600 square-foot addition to the Sul Ross Rio Grande College building.
Ferrell told the board the projects cost estimates are $6,791,000 for the classroom building and $906,000 for the Sul Ross Rio Grande building addition, slightly higher than when he first presented his site plan in April.
The increase comes with the addition of two alternate bid items, which include a covered and fenced exterior dining court and parking improvements to the downtown complex.
Next step in the process will be to send out an invitation to submit proposals. Deadline for submitting proposals will be Nov. 18.
