RSD Selects Bond Project Management Firm
January 12. 2021
Redmond, Ore.–The Redmond School District has selected HMK Company to serve as the bond project management firm for its 2020 bond projects.
HMK, which has offices in Medford, Albany and Bend, has more than 25 years of experience in executing large-scale bond projects, and has worked with 98 school districts around Oregon. Most recently, the firm has worked with the Ashland School District, the Greater Albany Public Schools and the Dayton School District.
The company will oversee and manage the bidding, planning and construction of bond projects, as well as master scheduling and other oversight.
“This was a very difficult decision due to the high quality of the firms that submitted proposals, but after an extensive process HMK rose to the top as the best partner for the Redmond School District,” said Tony Pupo, the district’s executive director of operations.
The district put out a request for proposal in November, and selected HMK from five applicants.
The $27.5 million bond measure, passed by voters in November, will allow the Redmond School District to upgrade and update all of the district’s 13 school facilities to provide healthy, safe and secure campuses that are modern and efficient. Bond funding will also allow the district to expand student capacity and prepare for future growth by building six additional classrooms at both Tom McCall Elementary School and Vern Patrick Elementary School. The bond measure is not estimated to increase the current tax rate due to savings from refinancing previously issued bonds and projected growth in the total taxable assessed values districtwide. The district has also qualified for a $7.6 million matching grant from the state.
The district is expected to issue the bonds in early 2021, and bond projects are expected to begin in the summer of 2021. For more information on the 2020 bond, please go to www.redmondschoolbond.org.
