Brookshire Clubhouse Work to be Rebid

 CARMEL, IN – The City of Carmel has decided to rebid the work on the Brookshire Clubhouse at the golf course after reviewing the contract process with new outside counsel. Michael Drewry, of Drewry Simmons and Vornehm construction attorneys, has suggested that bids be redone under a construction management law that changed July 1, 2017.

“While the project began before that time, it is not clear whether it would be grandfathered under the previous law,  so we are proceeding with an abundance of caution and completing a new bid process through the city,” said Douglas Haney, Corporation Counsel.

Previously, competitive bidding was done through Shiel Sexton, which is the intended Construction Manager acting as Agent for the City of Carmel. That contract is being finalized and to date, no taxpayer money has been spent on construction. Shiel Sexton brought the bids through the Board of Public Works. Work on the job site will be temporarily delayed while the bid process is completed directly by the city through the Board of Public Works. 

We appreciate your patience as we complete the new process, which will ensure that we are in compliance with the updated law.
