Minocqua Public Library Building Project Update

Link to February 5 Lakeland Times article, "Construction manager for library project possible".

Excerpt: No formal vote was taken, but it appears town of Minocqua officials are leaning toward hiring a construction manager, rather than a general contractor, to oversee the planned expansion and remodeling of the town's library.

Tuesday night the town board held a joint meeting with the library ad hoc building committee and heard a presentation from representatives of Miron Construction on the differences between hiring a general contractor or a construction manager to oversee the library building project.

A larger percentage of building projects have usually been completed with a general contractor receiving the overall construction bid and then contracting with other companies to complete various parts of the project, but an increasing number of projects are being completed with a construction manager in charge instead of the general contractor, according to Michael Murphy, vice president of northern operations for Miron Construction.
