Pennsylvania College of Technology’s Board of Directors has approved the awarding of construction contracts totaling $45,266,519 for the Stage X Building Program, which includes new on-campus housing for approximately 250 students and renovations at several main-campus facilities.The general contractors for the Stage X project will be IMC Construction Inc., Malvern, and Robert Feaster Corp., Northumberland. The general-contract award is for $26,699,554.

Other contracts awarded are: HVAC, The Farfield Co., Lititz, $6,044,000; plumbing, W.G. Tomko Inc., Finleyville, $4,344,444; electrical, Lecce Electric Inc., Williamsport, $6,697,000; and facility management, Johnson Controls Inc., Camp Hill, $1,481,521.

Penn College President Davie Jane Gilmour said the bids came in about $600,000 lower than the architect’s estimate. That will enable the college to include all of the work that had been planned, she said.

“It was really what we had hoped for,” Gilmour said, noting the work will be performed by firms based in the region and local area. Five firms submitted bids for the general contract.

In addition to constructing new housing on the west end of campus, the college will renovate instructional and service facilities in the Hager Lifelong Education Center, the Parkes Automotive Technology Center and the Avco-Lycoming Metal Trades Center/Machining Technologies Center.
