The Town of Eastover will accept separate sealed bids for the complete demolition, abatement, disposal, and site clean-up of the former Eastover Elementary School. The 8-acre site, located at 500 Vanboklen Street, contains a ~22,000 sq. ft. dilapidated structure, a collapsed wooden structure, and man-made debris piles. The school structure and debris are known to contain asbestos or asbestos-containing material (ACM), and some of the debris piles are known to have lead and petroleum contaminated soil. An underground storage tank (UST) may also be present.
You are invited to submit a bid in accordance with the specifications and conditions set forth in the Invitation for Bids package. The contract will be awarded to the contractor having the lowest responsible/responsive base bid. To obtain a copy of the Request for Bids package, contact Gregory Sprouse, Director of Research, Planning, and Development at [email protected] or (803) 744-5158.
All bid forms must be complete and returned in writing to: Eastover Town Hall, 624 Main Street, Eastover, SC 29044 no later than 2:00 PM on April 12, 2021. The sealed bid package envelope must be clearly marked “Eastover School Demolition.” Once a sealed bid is submitted, no opportunity shall exist to withdraw and submit an alternate bid.
