Excitement is in the air at 105 Holmes Avenue in the City of Brandon!
At the June meeting, the City Council awarded contracts for the restoration:
Concrete - Bitzan-Ohren
Masonry - Building Restoration Corp.
Carpentry - BCS, Inc.
Roofing - Membrane Roofing -
Finishes - Beers Painting
Electrical - Lennes Bros.
Total projected cost for Phase I - $254,390.
Renovations began Monday, June 14, 2010. As we all know, 75 years have taken a huge toll on the building, and the need to make repairs is apparent. Fundraising efforts by the community and funds appropriated by the City of Brandon have made it possible to begin Phase I of the project. Phase I is expected to be finished in time for our Summerfest. You will be able to follow the progress of the project on the ORB Management web site at: http://orbmanagement.biz/agree.html with the following username and password.
