MARINETTE — The Marinette School District has selected C.D. Smith Construction as their Construction Manager for a possible $30.9 million referendum on the November 3 ballot. The selection was announced during Tuesday’s Board of Education meeting.
If the referendum is passed, C.D. Smith will work closely with district officials and Somerville Architects and Engineers to weigh the immediate and long-term impact of the facility improvement projects to ensure the best overall value for the district. The firm will lead the construction planning, budgeting and feasibility assessment efforts.
The district would expand Merryman and Park Elementary Schools and close Garfield Elementary School and Sunrise Early Learning Center. Merryman would serve children in early childhood through first grade while Park would serve children in second through fourth grades.
The proposal also includes remodeling and renovations at Merryman and Park as well as at Marinette Middle School and Marinette High School.
