Luebbert Flooring was awarded the bid on a unanimous vote although the quote was $1,866 higher than one for $22,672 from AALCO, Manufacturing. Jason Luebbert’s bid was also $543 higher than a discounted rate of $23,995 submitted by Bulte Company, Inc., of St. Louis. Bulte’s bid was for $25,725 but extended a line for an award for doing all three surfaces for $23,995.
Josh Hoener, athletic director for the Gasconade County R-2 School District, told the full board that Luebbert’s father had completed previous refinishing work on the high school gym floor. Luebbert’s firm also provides its own power converters since the schools do not have 3-phase electrical service in the gyms.
Hoener told the board that both AALCO and Bulte would likely use subcontractors to do the work. Luebbert, who is an area wrestling official, took over his father’s company which specializes in gym floors.
Hoener noted Luebbert’s firm has done similar projects recently at Pacific and New Haven. “Those both turned out really nice,” said Hoener.
This will be the first time since the gym was constructed during the 1988 building addition that the large gym floor has been completely sanded down and refinished. Hoener said a “whole new design” will be included in the project which includes a stained windmill at center court and elimination of the painted orange free throw lanes. The windmill will be outlined in black with orange accents.
“They’re a known entity. We know the quality work they do,” said Superintendent Dr. Russ Brock.
Luebbert’s bid for the OHS gym was $18,430. AALCO bid that work for $16,800. Luebbert’s bid for the OMS portion of the project was $2,777 —$304 higher than AALCO. Bulte’s bid for the OES work was $2,900 while Luebbert quoted $3,333. AALCO’s bid for the OES work was $3,401.“This is the right move to make,” said Brock about the bid award.
