There will soon be some spick and span walls around the South Whidbey School District.

Repairs, restoration and fresh paint to two schools will cost nearly $80,000 as the South Whidbey School Board approved a contract with Clinton-based Quality Remodeling & Restoration at its regular monthly meeting Wednesday night. The contract was set at $62,750, while tax and contingency costs raise the total sum of the project to $74,484.25.

The company will paint and repair specific areas at the high school and primary school campuses. The areas include 34 classrooms, two hallways, three gyms (lower walls only) and five office spaces, according to a school document. Walls will be repaired and primed as needed, and then receive two coats of new paint.

The school district solicited bids from 24 area contracts listed on its small works roster service, but received only one bid from Quality Remodeling & Restoration, which has worked with the district in the past.

“They have done good work on other projects for the district,” wrote district Maintenance Director Brian Miller in his project request.

Miller said that work is scheduled to begin the week of Monday, March 20, while preparations to identify which areas to begin working on will be addressed this coming week.

“Our goal is to get as much done before the end of school,” Miller said. “Some areas we can’t really practically do until summer, but the more we can get done this spring the less stressful summer is going to be for us.”
