District 6 will hire a general contractor in February to construct the new Prairie Heights Middle School at the intersection of 65th Avenue and 37th Street in Evans. The school is slated to open in August of 2015.
Five general contractors have been prequalified for the project. The district hopes to break ground on the new middle school this spring. They are: FCI Consructors, Inc.; Adolpfson & Peterson Construction; Golden Triangle Construction, Inc.; JHL Constructors, Inc.; and Roche Constructors, Inc.
In addition, the district has begun looking at plans for asbestos abatement and demolition at the current John Evans Middle School, which is also being funded through the BEST grant and bond money. This phase of the project will be completed once the new school is open.
