The State Historical Society of North Dakota received four bids for the mold/asbestos/lead base paint abatement for the basement at the 1883 Stutsman County Courthouse in Jamestown.
MAVO Systems of Mandan is the successful low bidder and will begin work at the courthouse on Oct. 1. The total contract for the work is $141,368, the SHSND said.
State and private funding will pay for the project. This continues the partnership between the 1883 Courthouse Committee and the State Historical Society of North Dakota to ensure the preservation and adaptive reuse of this architectural style.
We are delighted to see this project move forward and to have this marvelous structure continue to be a monument to the people,” said Barbara Lang, Historic Stutsman County Courthouse Preservation Committee.
The Historic Stutsman County Courthouse Committee has committed $58,900 toward the project with the remainder of the funds coming from the state.
“These partnerships make projects feasible and show the local commitment to the preservation of all too rare historic properties that are irreplaceable,” said Merlan Paaverud, SHSND director.
Other projects completed in the courthouse this summer by the SHSND include the removal of temporary electrical wiring, installation of new power sources in the basement, a concrete wall for better fire separation, and landscaping and re-grading the grounds of the courthouse to prevent moisture seepage into the building.
