Buffalo, NY- At the Erie County Legislature’s regular session, held on Thursday, March 3, 2016 in “Old County Hall” in Downtown Buffalo, the Erie County Legislature passed a resolution authorizing the County to enter into a Guaranteed Maximum Price (GMP) Amendment with Turner Construction Company concerning its construction management services contract for the STEM building project at the ECC North Campus.
The GMP Amendment for the first phase of construction is for an amount not to exceed $7,400,000. A future amendment will cover the remaining construction work.
“This latest agreement moves the County and ECC one step closer to putting a shovel in the ground and starting construction on this long awaited building project,” stated Erie County Legislator and Minority Leader, Thomas A. Loughran, (D-Amherst).
“This STEM building will assist ECC to improve their student and faculty base, as well as provide students with state of the art classrooms and facilities in the long neglected North Campus. This building will integrate new and expanded workforce training and education, that fits the needs of area employers,” Legislator Loughran added.
