An executive session for the Horry County Schools Board of Education dealing contract negotiations is scheduled for Monday night.
According to the agenda, the board will receive legal advice on contract negotiations for the five school building projects scheduled for completion in 2017.
Two weeks ago, the Horry County Schools Board of Education voted 11-1 to direct staff to begin final negotiations with First Floor Energy Positive for the five school building projects.
According to information provided at that time, the proposals submitted by First Floor Energy Positive were superior to those of competing firms, second place Thompson Turner Construction and third place M.B. Kahn Construction.
Additionally, First Floor Energy Positive’s experience in the construction of energy-positive school designs was an important factor in their choice.
First Floor Energy Positive’s team consists of local sub-contractors whose businesses and many employees are located in Horry County. Spending local public money in contracts with local firms is always a consideration for public agencies.
