The Trevor School building addition has taken some steps forward recently.

The Trevor-Wilmot School Board has selected contractors that will bid on the project from a list of 12 that submitted information. Making the cut were:

  • Camosy Construction.
  • J.P. Cullen & Sons.
  • Riley Construction.
  • Scherrer Construction.

The School Board also approved three alternate bids that could add to the project if the price is right. The three alternate bids are:

  1. Adding five second floor classrooms to the addition. The bids will include this option completed and in an unfinished shell form.
  2. Demolishing the wing where the current fifth grade classes are housed and renovating the school front.
  3. Renovating some bathrooms in the arts wing of the existing building.

When the time comes, the contractors will submit separate bids for the alternates apart from the main project, which will add enough school space to have all district students at the Trevor building. Currently, 4-year-old kindergarten through second grade attend classes at the Wilmot Primary Center,  just north of the Kenosha County Fairgrounds. The main project was approved by voters in a referendum last November.

The district could pick up some economies of scale by bidding the alternate portions now while contractors will already by at the building working on the main project, district administrator George Steffen said at last week’s School Board meeting.

Seeking all of the alternate bids was not unanimous. Board members Lynn Jaeger and Bill Barhyte voted against including alternate bid 2 and Barhyte also voted against alternate bid 3.
