The Town of Qualicum Beach has approved a contract for close to $1 million for the next phase of the Berwick water project.

At a special council meeting, engineer Bob Weir recommended that the $901.065 contract for the construction of the Berwick pump station building be awarded to Island West Coast Developments of Nanaimo. 

This was the low bid, both in dollars and number of days — 97 of them —to complete the job. The next lowest bid was for $919,181, with 168 days to do the work. The highest bid was for $1,490,780 and 248 days.

The tender amount includes a $25,000 contingency allowance, a $15,000 cash allowance and 12 per cent tax. 

In his report, Weir noted the project has expanded to include geothermal heating and cooling, but the cost is still within the original budget estimate. 

Council unanimously approved the move.
