Grae-Con Wins Bid to Renovate Wood County 911 Center

Grae-Con is excited to announce that the Wood County Commission of West Virginia has awarded them the contract to renovate the former Suddenlink Building into the county’s new 911 Center.

This decision comes after a two-month bidding contest between five different construction companies for the opportunity to fortify the building and reinforce the roof and inside offices, as well as potentially repave the parking lot and construct a new fence.

ZMM Architects & Engineers of Charleston, the firm tasked with this project’s design and oversight, examined all five bids and gave their recommendation to the commission, who this past June unanimously selected Grae-Con.

When speaking of Grae-Con and why the commission selected them, Commissioner Jimmy Colombo said, “They have a history in hiring local workers.”
The $3.189 million project is estimated to take 395 days and is scheduled to begin in the near future.
