Mitch Dexter, business development manager at Constellation, told the board at last week’s meeting the company would overhaul the outdated HVAC system and controls and replace with high-efficiency hot water heating, electrical and mechanical cooling. The pressure steam system was installed in 1987.
Constellation had a lower price compared to Schneider Electric, who bid more than $6 million.
Mike Stulak of Economy, a member of concerned citizens group from Liberty Hills, said he still has a concern from the standpoint, the district went from a $6.5 million bid with Schneider to a $4.2 million bid from Constellation. He said there has to be some differences in what the two companies proposed.
“I hope they compared apples to apples, that they didn’t get into a situation that ‘oh this is the lowest number, let’s do it,” Stulak said.
