Thursday, September 14, 2017 0 Comments

The Miami-Dade School Board approved four General Obligation Bond (GOB) projects at its regular monthly meeting in September with a total project investment valued at $33.3 million. 
Voters overwhelmingly approved the GOB in 2012 to renovate, remodel and replace schools; expand student capacity; enhance safety; and provide technology upgrades. The projects awarded for design, pre-construction and construction included local high school Hialeah Miami Lakes Senior High. 

The scope of work includes: portable demolition and site restoration; new bus drop-off including related walks and covered walkways; resurfacing and re-striping of basketball courts; selective replacement of exterior doors, flooring, ceiling tiles and grid; selective HVAC system replacement; group restrooms renovation; electrical upgrades; gymnasium bleacher restoration and selective exterior painting.

Total project allocation cost for HML is at $6.36 million with an estimated completion date of March 2019. The total sub-contractor Small Business Enterprise participation was 43.3 percent. 
The District-established Small/Micro Business Enterprise utilization goals were met or exceeded by the contractors, with highly diverse sub-consultant teams. This was further strengthened by a strong commitment to Local Workforce Utilization.

Continued fidelity to the implementation of the GOB program and the District’s steady commitment to inclusiveness and diversity in its procurement process are positively impacting the quality of the educational environment and the local economy.
