Boldt awarded school construction contracts
The Journal Record
Riding a wave of momentum from MAPS for Kids projects, the Boldt Co. has culled more than $27.5 million in recent construction contracts for K-12 educational projects in Oklahoma.
The Moore Independent School District awarded Boldt a $11.5 million contract to oversee the construction of a new performing arts center for Moore High School. The performing arts center is the fifth facility that Boldt will build for the school district. Boldt also oversaw the construction of Southmoore High School, the Southmoore sports complex and two Moore elementary schools.
Most of the recent educational contracts Boldt has been awarded will be paid for with bond issue money, said Clay Cockrill, business development manager for the Boldt Co.
"I think these projects indirectly reflect a confidence constituencies have in their elected leaders and an inherit optimism in Oklahoma City," Cockrill said.
Wisconsin-based Boldt has offices in Oklahoma City and has built several MAPS projects in the city, including the Bricktown Ballpark and Bricktown Canal. Boldt also was the contractor for several MAPS for Kids projects. MAPS for Kids funded 100 educational projects at 72 school sites in Oklahoma City worth an estimated $470 million. Boldt built John Marshall High School, Douglass High School and U.S. Grant High School, as well as Nichols Hills Elementary School. All four projects benefited from MAPS for Kids funding.
Boldt also has recently been awarded a $16.2 million contract to build a new middle school for Oklahoma City's Western Heights School District in Oklahoma City.
Bartlesville Public Schools also has named Boldt the construction manager at risk for the construction of the new Wilson Elementary there. The $1.2 million contract is the seventh the Bartlesville district has awarded to Boldt.
