A Spokane-based contractor was awarded the contract to replace the heating and cooling system at Richland's Chief Joseph Middle School.
The Richland School Board approved the contract with TW Clark at a recent board meeting. The company will be paid just under $3.3 million, roughly $1 million less than the district originally budgeted for the project.
Five companies submitted bids for the work. TW Clark had the lowest bid by far, with the next closest coming in at nearly $3.6 million.
Workers are expected to begin working on site in March with much of the work going on during the summer student break.
