SHERIDAN — The Sheridan Economic and Educational Development Authority ratified contracts for work on the Weatherby, Inc. project.
The firearms company announced in January it is relocating its manufacturing operations and corporate headquarters from California to Sheridan.
The group approved Sheridan’s Dick Anderson Construction to preside over the project as construction manager at risk. Each ratification of the contract allows funding for another subcontractor contributing to the project.
In SEEDA’s meeting Monday, the joint powers board approved the contract of Arete Design for its architectural schematic designs and design developments. The $561,520 part of the project falls under grant-eligible expenditures.
A grant through the Wyoming Business Council, totaling $12,592,090, will help finance these contracts.
The metal work for the building went out to bid publicly two weeks ago and came back with the lowest bid totaling $2,137,699. Northern Wyoming Community College District director of facilities Kent Andersen said the bid was right on track with the budget estimate.
