Local subcontractors, workers sought for construction project

Posted by Amy Higgins on 11/29/2017

The Elyria City School District is embarking on a project to rebuild its elementary and middle schools and athletic complex in a nearly $140 million construction plan. 

The district is working with architectural firm Architectural Vision Group (AVG), Westlake, and AECOM/AGS, Cleveland, to build five new schools: two K-4 elementary schools, two K-8 campuses, and one PK-8 campus. A new multisport complex also will be built in two phases at the current site of Ely Stadium. 

The project opens up opportunities for residents of Elyria and Lorain County with experience in construction trades, and for local subcontractors to bid or be hired on the job. 

Interested individuals may attend informational sessions hosted by AECOM/AGS and the Lorain County Urban League. Two sessions are upcoming: December 7, 2017, and January 4, 2018, 6-8PM at the Urban League at 200 Middle Avenue, Suite 200. 

Online interest forms also are available. Follow the links below to complete subcontractor or worker forms.
