MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - A Martinsburg company's $4.2 million bid to replace the roof and HVAC systems of Berkeley County's government office building was the lowest of three proposals.
The $4,290,000 bid from W. Harley Miller Contractors Inc. was less than bids by Brechbill & Helman Construction Co. Inc. of Chambersburg, Pa. ($4,402,700) and Minghini's General Contractors Inc. of Martinsburg ($5,050,000).
A recommendation from DMJM, an architectural design services firm retained by the Berkeley County Commission, is expected within 30 days.
Matthew Hjermstad of DMJM told the commission in May that the work would be difficult and the Dunn Building would become a dirty and noisy construction zone, according to commission meeting minutes.
Hjermstad said the job would take about four months to complete and the third floor would have to be vacated while the work is done.
