Kennewick construction company wins $17.5 million school contract

Chervenell Construction of Kennewick has been selected to build a new elementary school in West Richland.

The company’s winning bid of $17.51 million was the lowest of three bids submitted, according to the Richland School District.

The district’s 11th elementary school will be built near the intersection of Belmont Boulevard and Sunshine Avenue across the street from the new Leona Libby Middle School. Work will begin in late April.

The district will use this new 65,000-square-foot school during the 2019-20 year to house Tapteal Elementary School students while Tapteal is replaced.

In 2020-21, the district will use it to house Badger Mountain Elementary School students while their school is replaced.

District residents approved a $99 million bond for the new elementary school and nine other projects in 2017.
