Woda Group, the developer of the successful senior apartment complex Sycamore House in Durand, is preparing to redevelop two more vacant Shiawassee County schools that will provide additional local housing. Both Lincoln House, in the former Lincoln School in Owosso, and Cavalier Greene, in the former Shiawassee Street School in Corunna, are slated to begin construction in the coming months.
In support of these projects, Woda will be hosting two upcoming informational sessions to introduce local subcontractors to bid opportunities in the following areas:
- Asbestos Abatement
- Existing Brick Repair/Tuck-pointing
- Rough Carpentry
- Finish Carpentry
- Gypsum Board/Drywall
- Plaster Repair
- Fire Suppression
- Termite Control
- Asphalt Paving
- Material Testing
The first informational session will be held on Thursday, June 30th at 9:00 AM at the former Shiawassee Street School, located at 106 S. Shiawassee St in Corunna. The second will be Friday, July 1st at 9:00 am at the former Lincoln School, located at 120 Michigan Ave in Owosso. Information on both projects will be available at both events.
“We have an aggressive schedule for construction, and are immediately locating subcontractors with the expectations to receive quotes in the coming weeks. It is our desire that we can use as many of local companies as possible throughout this process,” said Darla Tovar, Vice President of Operations at Woda.
“With an established track record of success in the area, we are excited to see Woda making additional investment in Shiawassee County. Not only will these projects provide quality housing opportunities for residents, but will also provide work for our construction industry and keep money in the community. We strongly encourage our local firms to come to these informational sessions to learn more,” said Justin Horvath, President/CEO of the Shiawassee Economic Development Partnership, which has been providing project assistance.
