HOLTVILLE — The new science building for Holtville High School will soon be a reality.
Fencing and a construction trailer have been put up at the site on west Seventh Street on the south side of the high school. Next week equipment will be moved to the site.
TSI/Tenant Space Inc. of Brawley won the bid for the construction of the nearly $1 million science building.
Cecil Atkins, division manager of the company's public works division, has predicted the building will be completed three months from the start of construction. TSI is looking at a completion date at the end of April.
"Most of the subcontractors are local and we are blessed with very good subs," Atkins said.
Two-thirds of the funding for the building was received by the district in the form of a grant from the state Office of Public School Construction. The remaining third, or $330,477, will come from the district's general fund.
