The Georgetown High School auditorium, used not only by the school but for numerous other events, will soon he getting a major overhaul.
The Georgetown County School Board on Tuesday agreed to award a contract not to exceed $2.6 million to HG Reynolds Co, of Aiken to do the job.
Lisa Ackerman, the district’s Director of Procurement and Special Projects, said an additional 5,700 square-feet will be added which will include improvements to the lobby and an outdoor plaza.
“There will be significant audio and visual upgrades,” Ackerman said.
There will be new curtains for the stage area and the seating in the auditorium will be replaced.
HG Reynolds was the second lowest bidder but the lowest bidder was found to be “non-responsible” during a post-bid investigation, Ackerman said. Seven companies bid on the project.
Ackerman said work is expected to begin next month and the work should be complete this fall.
