TQ Lands Vidalia School Project
Tuesday, 06 May 2014

May 6--  For the third time in two years, a Metter construction company has won the bid to do a major construction project in Toombs County.

Tuesday the Vidalia school board accepted the low bid of $1,698,300 from TQ Constructors to renovate J.R. Trippe Middle School this summer.  Work should be competed by October at the latest.

According to School Superintendent Dr. Garrett Wilcox, the project includes replacing the HVAC systems throughout the building, some roofwork, some cosmetic work with paint and some flooring in the hallways and also there'll be a new controlled entrance for security at the front of the building.

Dr. Wilcox says the board is also considering future work at Vidalia High School.

"As soon as school gets out, we will start some planning for some renovations or a new building at Vidalia High School," he said.

The state of Georgia is funding $1 million of the J.R. Trippe project with the balance being paid by local sales tax revenue.

T.Q Constructors is also building the new Toombs County High School in Lyons and the county's speculative building in the industrial park north of Lyons.

Four other companies bid on the Trippe project including Harry Moses Construction ($1,951,752), Copper Construction ($1,783,000),  McDonald Costruction ($1,729,000) and Y-Delta, Inc. ($2,121,400).
