The City of Plymouth has a list of four construction contractors to choose from for its Wastewater Treatment Plant improvement project. During Monday’s Board of Works meeting, it was revealed that the city received qualifications from Kokosing Industrial, F.A. Wilhelm Construction Company, Thieneman Construction, and Bowen Engineering.
Because the city has decided to use a Guaranteed Savings Contract for the project, the contractor won’t be chosen based on the lowest bid. Instead, each company submitted its qualifications, and a committee will go through them using a scoring system to rank them according to which company is most qualified. That committee consists of utility superintendent Donnie Davidson along with Board of Works members Mike Delp and Don Ecker Jr. At that point, the city would be able to negotiate with the potential contractors, starting with the one determined to be most qualified.
The committee plans to recommend one or two construction contractors by the next Board of Works meeting on February 8. Davidson says construction will likely begin in June.
