The topic was about pads and mats, and Muscogee County School Board members sure could have used them Monday evening as they verbally wrestled with central office administrators about another change order to the project that built the new Carver High School.
Like a tag-team match, board members took turns during their work session to question the administration’s request for an estimated $80,000 to construct a building to store pads and mats used for field events, such as high jump and pole vault, at the school.
This would be the 12th change order in the $37 million project that rebuilt Carver, which re-opened in August 2012. Freeman & Associates of Columbus and Balfour Beatty Construction of Atlanta are partners as the project’s main contractors. Gardner Spencer Smith Trench & Jarbeau of Atlanta is the architect.
