Triad Construction, Inc. has been awarded the contract to construct the new Coweta County Health Department building on Hospital Road. Coweta County commissioners approved the $1.7 million low bid at the Jan. 5 meeting.
Triad was one of 15 bidders whose proposals ranged from Triad’s low of $1,709,900 to a high bid of $2,291,700 by Spark-Grizzard Construction. The bid by Triad showed a 240-day construction period.
The amount of the lowest bid was substantially less than what was expected, said county administrator Theron Gay.
Coweta in late 2009 was awarded a $500,000 state grant for the construction project. The Coweta County Hospital Authority had also agreed to provide $1.5 million for the project.
The board also voted to have Commission Chairman Paul Poole sign all contract documents.
