School Com Awards Bid For New High School

The Monomoy Regional School Committee Wednesday night unanimously awarded the bid to build the new Monomoy High School to Fontaine Bros. of Springfield. The $49.3 million bid is more than $5 million lower than construction estimates.

Fontaine was one of three firms to submit bids for the project, all of which were significantly lower than estimates. The $49.3 million bid accepted by the school committee includes several alternatives for a new track, artificial turf and ballfield lights.

When architects and owners' project manager fees are added to the construction cost, the total project cost comes to just under $60 million, said building committee co-chairman Ed McManus. Last Auguest, Chatham and Harwich voters appropriated a total of $64 million for the new school, more than half of which will eventually be paid by the state.

Fontaine is the same firm that constructed Ashland High School, the model school upon which the design of Monomoy High School is based, Superintendent of Schools Carolyn Cragin said.
