The Board of Examiners on Tuesday approved a $55.15 million contract with Core West to provide construction manager at risk services for the new engineering college building at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas.
One-half of the cost is being funded by general obligation bonds. The other half is funding raised by UNLV.
Core West will build the Engineering Academic and Research building. The goal is to have the project completed by July 2025.
In addition, the board consisting of the governor, attorney general and secretary of state, approved a $3.69 million contract for architectural and engineering services for the Army National Guard’s new training center in Las Vegas. Just under three quarters of the funding will come from the federal government with the remaining 26 percent covered by bonds for the new center in Las Vegas. The contract was awarded to Carpenter Sellers Del Gatto architects.
The Carson City School District was awarded a $2 million contract to pay for the non-federal share of school health services, medical screening and diagnostic services for Nevada Medicaid/Check Up-eligible students.
A similar contract for $887,882 was awarded to the Lyon County School District.
Finally, they approved a two-year contract extension with the law firm of Egan, Fitzpatrick, Malsch & Lawrence as outside counsel to continue the fight to block the Yucca Mountain nuclear dump project. The contract is for $5.1 million in General Fund money.
