I'm not sure how many of these positions will be filled locally, but we have a number of temp jobs that will hit our town soon.
Rentenbach has worked on two high schools for Hamilton County Schools, Signal Mountain Middle/High and East Hamilton High, in the last few years. The Signal Mountain project was completed in 2008 at a cost of $42.5 million. That school is 262,000 square feet, compared to East Hamilton High, which is 287,000 square feet when it opened in 2009. The newer school cost $41.9 million to build.You figure the company has a core of employees, but most of the people will be local hires.
Stewarts Creek, modeled after Siegel High, will be about 350,000 square feet.
"When we built Signal Mountain, we had 250 to 300 people on the site. This project would take that many people or more," she said. "But that's steady employment those people will have for 22 months."
Construction should begin in July, so keep an eye on who wins the bid, and if I find out I'll post it. You might have a job if you go for it....I wonder if they need a fat out-of-shape liberal arts major to help build the school. I can hope can't I?
