School Board Approves $8.7 Million for GOB Projects

Small Business Enterprise (SBE) Goals Met or Exceeded

The Miami-Dade School Board approved two General Obligation Bond (GOB) projects at its regular monthly meeting today with a total project investment valued at approximately $8.7 million, one being the commissioning of an architect and the other an award of a construction contract. Voters overwhelmingly approved the GOB in 2012 to renovate, remodel and replace schools; expand student capacity; enhance safety; and provide technology upgrades.  The projects are as follows: 

South Miami Middle School – Scope of work includes: play court improvements; window replacement; HVAC improvements; plumbing upgrades and replacement of bathroom fixtures and finishes; selected ceiling and lighting improvements; electrical upgrades; exterior stucco repairs and painting.

Total project allocation - $3.03 million Completion – January 2020 

Total Sub-Consultant Small Business Enterprise Participation – 35.4 percent

Gratigny Elementary School – Scope of work includes: portable demolition and site restoration; new P.E. shelter; play court improvements; new playground and covered walkways; window replacement; selective flooring replacement; HVAC improvements; restroom renovations; electrical upgrades; selective interior renovations and exterior painting.

Total project allocation - $5.69 million Completion – September 2019 

Total Sub-Contractor Small Business Enterprise Participation – 24.36 percent

Local Workforce Utilization – 20 percent for Construction within 7.5-mile radius

The District-established S/MBE utilization goals were met or exceeded with highly diverse sub-consultant teams. This was further strengthened by a strong commitment to Local Workforce Utilization. 

Continued fidelity to the implementation of the GOB program and the District’s steady commitment to inclusiveness and diversity in its procurement process are positively impacting the quality of the educational environment and the local economy.
