Fisher Elementary School 

Contract to construct new school

Bids to construct the new Fisher Elementary School were opened on Tuesday, July 12th.  Colacurcio Brothers Construction was the apparent low bidder with a base bid of $14,766,000.  In addition, 6 alternate bids totaling $671,000 were also presented for consideration.

At the regular school board meeting held on July 14th, the Lynden School District Board of Directors, in a unanimous vote, approved Colacurcio Brothers Construction as the low bidder and also took action to accept all 6 alternative bids.  The total cost of construction for the new school including tax, owner furnished items such as flooring and bleachers, alternative bid items, and a 5% contingency is $17,927,527.

The next step in the process is to finalize a contract with Colacurcio Brothers. It is expected that this should take approximately two weeks.  A special board meeting has been tentatively set for July 28th, at Fisher Elementary School at 6:30pm.  At this meeting the construction contract will be signed and a ground breaking ceremony will be held to kick off construction of the new school.

The project is scheduled to take 12 months and the new school should be ready for students by the beginning of the 2017-18 school year.

Working with a local contractor has tremendous benefits and the Lynden School District is excited to work with Colacurcio Brothers, who have an outstanding reputation in Whatcom County.
