Pembroke officials were expected to meet Wednesday with companies competing for the contract to build the municipality’s new city hall.
It’s the first construction by the city since the Harn Center, which was built in 2005, according to City Administrator Alex Floyd.
“And that project was done by the Department of Corrections,” Floyd said. “We don’t build often, but when we do, we want to build correctly. The city has confidence that each of (the firms expected to bid on the project) can deliver a first-class product to our citizens.”
The new city hall, which is expected to cost around an estimated $1.5-$2.5 million, will be located on city owned property at the intersection of Highway 67 and Strickland Street. The current city hall will house the city’s public safety department.
Floyd said the firms that are expected to bid on the project include Choate Construction, Company, Dabbs-Williams General Contractors, LLC, Harper and Company Builders, Inc., Lavender and Associates, Inc., Johnson-Laux Construction and Pioneer Construction, Inc.
Bids will be opened Oct. 8.
The contract will be awarded at Pembroke city council’s Oct. 12 meeting.
