The Iowa Western Community College Board of Trustees on Monday approved a bid of $6,280,000 from Hawkins Construction of Omaha for replacement of steam pipes for the heating system on the Council Bluffs Campus.
“Hawkins has done work for us before and has always done great work,” he said.
Workers will begin in January tearing up concrete that would be in the way of the pipeline work, Kinney said. The project will involve installing about 9,000 feet of new piping for a new hot-water heating system, which is expected to be more efficient. The college should be able to switch to the new system by December 2020.
