Construction projects continue at Coweta schools

Laurel Huster / The Newnan Times-Herald

The re-roofing project at Arnco-Sargent Elementary School is almost finished.

Superintendent Steve Barker announced that all construction bids for the Nixon Centre project were rejected. 

At the school board meeting Tuesday, Barker said the proposals were received June 20, and all of them were substantially over budget. 

“The decision was made that what would we do was reject those bids and re-advertise,” he said. 

Barker said that the electrical portion of the bid confused some of the contractors. New bids will be received July 30. 

Work is still scheduled to begin in August for completion in the spring of 2020. 

Many other projects are underway or will begin soon at schools around the county. 

HVAC modifications and re-roofing

HVAC modifications are substantially complete on the gyms at Moreland, Arnco-Sargent and Eastside elementary schools and the media center at Newnan High School. 

Re-roofing projects at Arnco-Sargent, Eastside and Moreland are near completion. All re-roofing is finished at Newnan High School.

Work at all locations is expected to be substantially completed by July 20. 

Brooks Elementary car rider canopy

The canopy structure at Brooks is complete and painted. The roof for the canopy is being added, and it will be complete for the new school year. 

Summer floor covering

Floor covering projects at Lee Middle, Ruth Hill Elementary, Newnan High’s A/V room and West Georgia RESA offices are almost complete. The total cost of the project is $204,043. 

High school tennis court replacement

The design work for replacing the tennis courts at all three high schools is underway. Project bids will be received on Aug. 6. 

The construction will take place this fall. 

East Coweta parking lot

A student parking lot will be added in the current location of the tennis court at East Coweta High. The design work is complete, and bids will be received Aug. 6. 

Work will be done this fall. At the school board meeting, Barker said that the construction will not interfere with parking during the school year.
