YMHA awards $8.4M to renovate Brier Hill housing project

YOUNGSTOWN — The Youngstown Metropolitan Housing Authority has awarded an $8,470,242 contract to VendRick Construction Inc. of Brookfield for the complete renovation of its Brier Hill Annex housing project.

VendRick’s bid was 9.5 percent below the architect’s estimate of $9,083,000 for the project.

All Brier Hill tenants were moved to other YMHA apartment complexes about two months ago, and construction will start in 30 to 45 days, with a completion deadline of September 2013 imposed by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, said Clifford Scott, authority executive director.
