Fowler awarded construction contract for Elementary #15

Fowler General Construction, from Richland, Washington, was awarded the contract for Kennewick’s 15th elementary school located in the Sagecrest development south of Southridge High School.

Fowler was the lowest bidder with a base price of $14,376,000. Also included were three bid alternate projects totaling $43,500. The base bid plus alternate projects total $14,419,500. Last month, Fowler was named the general contractor for the new Desert Hills Middle School on Clodfelter Road.

The new school, paid for with funds from the February 10 bond that voters passed, will use the same building design as the new Eastgate and Cottonwood elementary schools.

The new school will open in the fall 2016. New elementary school boundaries will be announced by November 2015.
