05/19/11 The Plymouth Board of Aviation Commissioners received seven quotes last week for a project to reside the terminal at the Plymouth airport. The board took the quotes under advisement in order for the members to compare the various services being quoted.
Those businesses quoting could choose to bid only the residing of the 45-year-old terminal building or add in the installation of windows.
Board President Tom Flynn said, “The two windows on the south side of the building are commercial grade aluminum windows but over the years the seals have loosened. The wood is rotten on all sides.”
Flynn explained that they would like to widen the windows out to the south like a bay window so that airport personnel would be able to see the runways from inside the terminal.
Airport Manager Dave Lattimer said the original siding had been painted only one time in the last 45 years that he remembers. Flynn said the original siding had been leaking for years and has rust, dents and dings.
Quotes were received from Heets Home Restoration (no address announced during the meeting) $49,650, MTC Quality Exteriors (Tippecanoe) $61,160; Johnson Builders (Knox) $33,477 and 32,000; Hammer Enterprises (Plymouth) 41,360, Kustom Disaster Restoration (Florida address) $42,492 and $43,782; and Easterday Construction (Culver) $59,950.
The project will likely be awarded at the next regular meeting in June, according to Flynn.
