The Advanced Engineering building at WVU was one of the projects alluded to in this blog earlier in the week as drawing lots of inteest from Pittsburgh contractors. Bids opened at 3:00 today and Massaro Corp. was the low bidder at $32.7 million. The published budget was slightly lower than that so there may or may not be an issue with the awarding of the contract.
As the results below show, there was a competitive bunching among the three low bidders and fairly uncompetitive numbers from Turner and Whiting-Turner. Both of those firms are also pre-qualified to bid the CPASS job that came out for bid Wednesday. It will be interesting to see how or if they react to these results on the later bid.
