Culver Town Manager Jonathan Leist updated the town council members this week on the upcoming Culver Beach Lodge project.
Construction documents are being put together by Steve Park with Mosaic Builders. He’s finalizing major items in the documents and then the project will be sent for bid opening on Thursday, March 28. The lakeside porch enclosure will be bid as an alternate bid.
The bids will due that day by 10:30 a.m. ET with the bid opening at 11 a.m. ET that day. The bids will be taken under advisement at that time to be discussed further at the April 9 Culver Town Council meeting.
Leist said the Culver Beach Lodge project is part of the Stellar Communities Designation program plans that were approved for the Town of Culver. The Beach Lodge will see a major renovation.
“The project includes updating the mechanical issues – plumbing, restroom fixtures, and electrical,” explained Leist. “The main floor will get a major renovation. They’ll be taking down a couple of walls and making the main programming area larger. The addition on the street side will allow for a new staircase and elevator.”
The extensive construction contract is currently being reviewed by Leist and Town Attorney Jim Clevenger.
The project is anticipated to begin this spring with plans to work around the summer schedule at the Culver Town Park with completion in the fall.
The town of Culver received funding for the project through the Stellar Communities Designation Program through the state.
