Johnson County Healthcare Center's Board of Trustees were updated on the latest time line for the construction for the new nursing home facility at their meeting this week.
Fletcher Construction and CTA Architects, who are in charge of the project, recommended the time line for bid packages to be sent out to prospective contractors on March 3rd.
They have tentatively scheduled a pre-bid conference March 19th and set March 26th as the date to open bids.
Fletcher and CTA will both be present for a special board meeting on April 1st to award the bids to contractors.
Their recommendation to the board concerning the bid process were to: have major bid packages have selected bidders; in some cases have preferred companies be awarded a package without bidding; to have all bidders submit a pre-qualifying statement; and finally to give Wyoming companies a 5% preference.
The board voted to accept the bid recommendations.
Construction on the new nursing home facility is expected to begin this spring, after the April 1st bid awards.
