MOSES LAKE — Construction bids for the new workforce education building at Big Bend Community College will be opened at 1:05 p.m. April 3 in the ATEC building.

The 70,000-square-foot building will house the college’s technical education programs, with the exception of aviation maintenance. That program will remain in its existing location next to the runway at Grant County International Airport.

The workforce education building will be on Bolling Street, across the street from ATEC building.

Linda Schoonmaker, BBCCs vice-president of finance and administration, said a contract will be awarded within 30 days, and from the time of the contract award, the contractor has about a year and four months – 480 days – to “substantial completion.” Once construction is done the project supervisors walk through the building, Schoonmaker said, and the contractor has 30 days to fix anything they find.
