With winter still heavily upon us, here at Ebert Construction we are staying warm by keeping busy working on bidding projects for the upcoming Spring and Summer. Typically, February is when a lot of the school projects come out for bid so that planning can start as soon as the snow is gone and the frost is out of the ground. Due to the tight construction schedule on school projects we have to work with our subcontractors on their durations to make sure the kids will be ready to go come the first day of class after Memorial Day. As a construction company we don’t think of summer as being a relaxing time to enjoy the summer, we are continually working long hours and doing everything we have to do to make sure the schools are completed on time!
In the last month Ebert has been the successful low bidder on three school projects in the Twin Cities Area. The first is the Scenic Height Elementary Addition for the Minnetonka Public School District. The project consists of a 3,500 sq ft addition that includes a new music room and two other classrooms. The second is Parker Elementary School for the Elk River School District which involves a complete gut of the schools interior finishes as well as various mechanical and electrical improvements. The third project is for the Minnesota State Colleges and Universities (MnSCU), is the Pine Technical College Addition. The project consists of 10,000 square foot pre cast addition that will build new space for the school’s technology, entrepreneurial, and business programs.
As the weather gets warmer (hopefully) the outlook for Ebert Construction remains bright and we hope that the construction industry in general is swinging upward.
