Tonganoxie USD 464 selects HVAC company from Lenexa for maintenance work

March 1, 2016

The Tonganoxie USD 464 School Board has selected a contract for repairs on heating, ventilation and air-conditioning maintenance.

During a special meeting Monday, the board selected P1 for its annual preventative maintenance cost. The company had a bid of $63,535.

That was in the middle of the other two bids, U.S. Engineering at $59,602 and Trane at $74,035. P1 had the lowest rate for labor per hour at $98 (U.S. Engineering was $105.50 and Trane $117.50).

The breakdown of possible savings again had P1 in the middle with $71,945. U.S. Engineering was at $75,878 and Trane $61,444.

USD 464 business manager Ann Clark and facilities coordinator Bill Seymour recommended P1, which is in Lenexa. U.S. Engineering is in Kansas City, Mo., and Trane has offices throughout the Kansas City metro area.

The district’s past contract was $11,290 monthly for maintenance and repairs on some district HVAC equipment. The contract did not include all HVAC equipment or buildings. The yearly contract was $135,480 plus additional time materials for equipment requiring repairs not covered on the contract.

The P1 contract includes preventative maintenance on all HVAC equipment.

Board members unanimously approved the contract at Monday’s meeting, which lasted just a few minutes.

The next meeting will be 6 p.m. Monday at the Tonganoxie Elementary School library.

Board meetings normally are on the second Monday of the month, but was moved because of spring break. Tonganoxie City Council has its regular meeting starting at 7 p.m. Monday in council chambers, 321 Delaware.
