N.D. (NewsDakota.com) – The Jamestown Regional Airport Authority has rejected all the bids that they’ve received for the 8 T-Hangar bay project.
According to Steve Aldinger, the intrepid engineer for the project, bids ranged from $989,000 to $1.3 million, much more than the original engineering estimate of $870,000. So, the board plans to rebid the project after specific design changes are made to reduce the estimated cost.
According to Aldinger, the plan is to remove the fire suppression from the hangar. They will also design the hangars with the possibility of having either hydraulic doors or bi-fold doors. The original design incorporated the hydraulic doors, but having the options of the bi-fold doors may lower the costs.
