Tracy City Mayor Larry Phipps and Roxanne Fults, city recorder, joined Southeast Tennessee Development District (SETDD) project administration coordinator Cathy Andrews, South Cumberland Plateau Americorps VISTA project member & SETDD development specialist Jonathon Connell, and consulting engineer Matthew Tucker of James C Halley & Company to award the contract and conduct a preconstruction conference with Chris Vaughn of Robertson-Vaughn Construction of Winchester. Robertson-Vaughn has been awarded the contract for phase 1 of the construction of South Cumberland Learning and Development Center at the old Grundy County High School site.
Phase 1 of this work will be focused on weatherization and sealing of the building in preparation for internal buildout of the property in a following phase. This work includes roofing, window repair and any exterior repairs needed to the 2-story section of the building.
According to Vaughn, Robertson-Vaughn has begun staging equipment on the site and will begin construction immediately.
