INDUSTRY ISSUES DISCUSSED IN BUILDING DIVISION AT ANNUAL MEETING

 

The CAWV Building Division met at the CAWV Annual Meeting that was held July 14 – 17 at The Greenbrier. Building Division Chairman Jamie Ridgeway, March-Westin Company, Inc., reported that CAWV Task Forces have been working on industry issues as they arise. Chairman Ridgeway, who also serves as chairman of the CAWV / School Building Authority of West Virginia (SBA) Task Force, reported that the SBA has a few projects ongoing but should have several projects coming to bid later this year. He noted that the SBA did change some of the language in their policies after they received comments from the CAWV Building Division members after last year’s annual meeting.

 

Attendees also discussed the new West Virginia State Purchasing Division language that deals with subcontractor list submissions on bids. Comments were developed at the meeting and returned to the Purchasing Division for review. The new language, when it is completed, should help bidders better understand the rules for subcontractor list submission. Look for updates on the final language in future CAWV Building Bulletins.

 

Building Division members discussed several other industry issues that will be placed on the agenda of the next CAWV Joint Architects Committee Meeting. For additional information, contact Pat McDonald at (304) 342-1166 or pmcdonald@cawv.org. Tripp Dailey, W. Harley Miller Contractors, Inc., was reelected chairman of the Building Division.

HERBERT HOOVER HIGH SCHOOL TO BE DEMOLISHED – CONSTRUCTION OF NEW FACILITY PLANNED

 

In a special Kanawha County Board of Education meeting this week, it was announced that Herbert Hoover High School in Clendenin will be torn down and a new facility will be constructed. The decision was made after FEMA declared last week that the school has over 70 percent damage due to the recent flooding. An official location has not been selected yet, but Superintendent Dr. Ron Duerring says the School Board will be searching for 50-70 acres of land, outside of the flood area, while still in the Elk River community. School officials say they expect FEMA to pay 75 percent of the cost of the new building, while the county school system is hoping help from the state will knock their tab down to about 5 percent. In the meantime, current high school students will split time with middle school students at Elkview Middle School, until a modular campus can be set up for Herbert Hoover. School officials say the Herbert Hoover building will be demolished. However, they hope to re-purpose the facility, possibly into a sporting complex. Nicholas County’s new schools superintendent Donna Burge-Tetrick also announced this week that three of the county’s schools, Summersville Middle, Richwood Middle and Richwood High, won’t be able to reopen their buildings in time for the Aug. 19 start of classes there and she is unsure if they can be reopened at all. More information on school projects will be released to members as plans develop.

 

AGC-Supported Building Infrastructure Bill Introduced in the Senate


Before Congress left for their August recess last week, AGC secured the introduction of a bipartisan Senate bill, the Public Buildings Renewal Act of 2016. (H.R. 5361 and S.3177). This bill would create a new class of projects eligible for financing through private activity bonds (PABs), including public buildings such as schools, post offices, libraries, and courthouses.  A companion bill was introduced in the House earlier this year. The focus is now to help gather more support to get these bills passed through Congress when legislators return in September. Members can visit AGC’s Action Center and urge West Virginia’s members of Congress to support these bills by clicking here, or going to www.agc.org/takeaction.
