Contractor selected for high school cafeteria project

The Tahoe Truckee Unified School District awarded a bid for the Tahoe Truckee High School cafeteria and modernization project to BRCO Constructors.

The bid, which was officially awarded by the school board on Wednesday morning, was for $5,833,000.

The largest piece of the project is a new 7,000-square-foot cafeteria, to be located on the southeast end of the existing auditorium. Project Manager Rob Koster said he expects construction to begin May 1, or as soon as the snow clears.

The existing cafeteria will be converted into science laboratories after the new cafeteria is complete.

A subcontractor will add fire sprinklers to the entire campus. Currently, the theater is the only room equipped with sprinklers, Koster said.

The modernization will also include upgrades to the east wing of the campus, including new lights, windows and other improvements. The east wing modernization will be on a tight schedule this summer, so classes won’t be interrupted in the fall.

The east entry parking lot and driveway will be paved as part of the project.

The Truckee High cafeteria and modernization project will be paid for with funds from Measure C, a $35 million bond that passed in March 1999.
