Bids accepted for Northeast Community College building project

NORFOLK - Bids on the new applied technology training facility and physical plant at Northeast Community College came in a little lower than expected.  At last week’s meeting, the college board of Governors accepted bids with a total of just under $14 million. The Applied Technology Training Facility will house the building construction, electrician, heating and air conditioning and electro-mechanical programs, with space also available in the future for green and wind energy classes.  Samsung Construction is serving as the construction risk manager for the project. More than 80% of the subcontractors on the project will be Northeast Nebraska firms. Construction is expected to begin soon, with the applied technology building ready for occupancy in December of 2014. The physical plant building is scheduled for completion in March of 2015.
