Contractor selected to build Matador Stadium under estimated budget
The Matador Stadium Project is one step closer — and several million dollars less than projected — with selection of the contractor.
F.A. Nunnelly was the top choice of a review team and approved by the Seguin ISD Board of Trustees on Tuesday night as the general contractor that will construct Matador Stadium.
“There were eight firms that responded to the formal bid solicitation,” Seguin ISD Assistant Superintendent of Business Services Tony Hillberg said. “All eight of those firms met the bid requirements and we certainly appreciated getting to know each of them. They are all quality firms, so we had our work cut out for us.”
While not the lowest nor the highest bid out of the eight competitive sealed proposals the district received, F.A. Nunnelly’s bid of $12,749,000 to complete the project, almost $5 million less than the initially proposed $17.3 million, rose to the top.
A number of factors weighed in the district receiving bids well under budget, Robyn Popa, of Pfluger Architects and pb Group, said.
