Contracting Opportunities at CCU
We are going to provide both Union and Non Union Contractors the opportunity to bid for work. Our intention is to utilize both on a basis that mirrors the percentage of Union and Non Union Contractors currently licensed in Jefferson County. Our policy will be to hire Jefferson County Contractors, where possible. We have hired Duneman Demolition, a Union Contractor from House Springs, to act as the General Contractor to oversee the project. The principals Kent and Linda Duneman have become partners in the project. All phases of Construction will be needed.
In addition to hiring Contractors to do work at our facility, we will also being hiring direct from the Community to help. This will include both new construction and maintenance. We will start hiring once we have received our permits from Crystal City for utilities and Jefferson County approves the project and issues permits for our development. We anticipate this may take 3 to 6 months to complete.
