OTTUMWA, Iowa — The Ottumwa Community School District Board of Education voted April 11, 2022, to award a Construction Management Agency contract to Carl A. Nelson & Company (CANCO) to lead pre-construction and construction of an addition to Douma Elementary School.

Pre-construction work will commence immediately in cooperation with design team members from Legat Architects in Moline, Illinois.

The addition, which is preliminarily estimated to be about 50,000 square feet, will be funded with SAVE program dollars collected through an Iowa 1-cent statewide sales tax. It is projected to house students in grades three through five. By relocating students in third, fourth and fifth grades from Liberty Elementary School to Douma, the district will gain opportunities to increase flexibility and efficiency in the use of its remaining buildings.

Carl A. Nelson & Company, headquartered in Burlington, Iowa, and with an office in Cedar Falls, Iowa, is the choice for school districts across Iowa to lead projects to build, expand and renovate school buildings. The CANCO team provides expert construction management services to clients, working in the agency role as an extension of the district staff to ensure value through design input, budgeting, scheduling and cost-estimating during pre-construction, as well as managing construction for quality and on-time, on-budget completion.
