County commissioners accepted $147,415 in bids Monday for Phase 2 of the second floor expansion of a county-owned building.
The officials OK’d the bids for demolition and construction of a building at 624 Ave. H. It once housed Eddie’s Cowboy Store.
The project includes extending the second floor, removing the old storefront and ripping out an old roof on the back of the building, said Jacob Kirkland, project manager with Teinert Commercial Building Services.
Workers will reinforce joists, install six steel columns and steel plates and put in new flooring.
‘It’s fairly tedious work,’ Kirkland said.
He said three bids were received for structural steel.
Miller Construction of Lubbock submitted a low bid of $17,355.
South Plains Steel of Lubbock entered a bid for $36,000, while W&W AFCO Steel of Lubbock submitted a $37,640 bid.
