Robert Cumming comments on Transportation Complex
Comments re photo 67222 Adair County Transportation Complex move-in near Robert Cumming writes:
I noted that Transportation Complex $1.7 million (engineered) pole barn carried only a one year warranty. Would be unfortunate for facilities maintenance to have to fix a leaky roof after 12 month warranty period ! - Robert CummingThanks - - Thanks. The new bus garage is far, far more than a 'pole barn' - it's a state of the art facility, though we understand your use of the term for effect.
As for the warranty mentioned, that is for a guarantee from the construction manager on their work - materials carrying independent warranties for varying lengths of time. Most think that publicly built structures are somewhat to extravagantly more costly because of several factors which simply put, have to do with Frankfort.
One has only to compare the cost and quality of the buildings at Lindsey Wilson College vs. any public school project in the area. The private school, many believe gets two to two-and-one-half the value for each dollar spent.
Similar comparisons are being made when private companies build similar facilities.
That being said, the results of the transformation of the Adair County School District campus are phenomenal. We're already reaping huge economic benefits; the schools are most certainly "the engine of economic development," and Columbia and Adair County has become a focal point for interest in educational innovation as never before. - EW
