Contracts Awarded For Passaic School

14 10 2009

Passaic-The state’s Schools Development Authority awarded tens of millions of dollars to a Hawthorne construction company to build a new school in Passaic.

The authority awarded a $28.6 million construction contract to Dobco Inc. to build an elementary school on Henry Street in Passaic. The school would accommodate 688 students from pre-kindergarten to fifth grade.

Plans for the 116,934 square-foot school include a three-story wing consisting of 34 classrooms and rooms for music, art, and administrative offices. Also planned are a 10,000-square-foot playground and a two-story community wing, with a media center/library, gymnasium, and cafeteria/auditorium .

Dobco came in more than $9 million below the cost estimate for the Passaic school. That project drew 11 bids. State officials attribute the lower cost of the contracts to heavy competition.
