New ElementaryThe School District of Washington’s Board of Education awarded a $15,852,400 contract to K&S Associates Inc. of St. Louis for construction of a new elementary school on a 75-acre parcel at Highway 100 and St. John's Road.

The contract was awarded during a special meeting Tuesday, March 3, at the District Office.

K&S Associates Inc. was “best and lowest” bidder, according to Chris Slagle with Landmark Contract Management, the owner’s representative/construction manager for the project.

A groundbreaking ceremony will take place in late March.

The District received a total of seven bids.

K&S Associates Inc.’s base bid came in at $15,789,000, but the board approved three alternates: wood floor in the gymnasium, $37,400; manual roller shades, $14,000; and additional overflow parking, $27,000.

Site work already is under way.

The new school, which will replace South Point Elementary, will be funded through Prop S, a $26 million no-tax increase bond issue approved by voters in April 2019.

The two-story, approximately 78,000-square-foot school, will serve kindergarten through sixth grade. It is designed to serve up to 550 students, but could be expanded in the future.

The new school is slated to open in August 2021.
