Who will build the Harris Building?

At least thirty commercial general contractors have a presence in the Corridor; yet, the Linn County Board of Supervisors will select one contractor from a pool of six local contractors to build the proposed Harris Building. The pool of six includes: Miron Construction, Ryan Companies, Unzeitig Construction, Tricon Construction Group, Kleiman Construction, and Rinderknecht Associates.

The Corridor Business Journal indicates the three largest commercial general contractors in the Corridor are McComas-Lacina Construction with 150 local employees, The Weitz Company, LLC, with 145 local employees, and Calacci Construction Company, Inc., with 160 local employees. Why didn’t the Board send an RFP to them or the other commercial general contractors in the Corridor?

I don’t have any insider information. I don’t know who the Board is going to pick to build the Harris Building. But I bet you – the collective – the community – already have an idea who will build the Harris Building – or who won’t be building it –  via your social media and social contacts. So let the polling begin.  We will find out if you were correct in February.  -Joel D. Miller – Linn County Auditor
