Work set to begin on new roof for Green View building building
SoVaNow.com / August 19, 2013The Green View Advanced Manufacturing Center, in the former Daystrom building, is getting a new roof with construction set to begin today, weather permitting.
On Friday morning, board members of the Halifax County Industrial Development Authority approved a low bid of $479,454 from J. E. Burton Construction Company for the replacement of the 332,000 square foot roof.
“That is the entire roof, except for the back shed roof which is not included,” said IDA Director Matt Leonard.
Burton’s bid, one of four, was considerably lower than the high bid of $779,000. The primary subcontractor for the project is Gupton Roofing, with B&B Consultants serving as the construction administrator. The bid is a 90-day contract.
Also following a closed session, the IDA board approved a resolution by Garland Ricketts, head of the Finance Committee, and seconded by Mattie Cowan to borrow $7.65 million to refinance the debt on the ABB building.
The action will be finalized following a final review of the board’s action by the IDA’s attorney.
Ted Bennett, head of the Operations and Personnel Committee, reported that Kristie Johnson is working to digitize the year’s past records of the IDA, which she hopes to finish by the end of the year.
He also reported that his committee is looking at the restriction of having members serve only two consecutive terms on the board.
Absent from the Friday morning meeting were chairman John Cannon and board member Wanda Jeffress.
