Bids submitted for West Oahu rail stations
Contract bids for the West Oahu group of rail stations are in, with only one offer below the city’s cost estimates. In all, four companies placed bids. Honolulu-based Nan, Inc. gave the lowest offer of $56 million.
City officials estimate that each group of rail stations will cost between $60 and $70 million to build, potentially making Nan, Inc.’s offer the most appealing for the West Oahu group. The next lowest bidder is Watts Constructors LLC at $66 million, followed by Hensel Phelps at $67 million. Hawaiian Dredging Construction Company, which was recently awarded a contract to build the Farrington Highway stations in Waipahu, came in with the highest bid of $73 million.
The West Oahu group includes the East Kapolei, UH West Oahu and Ho’opili stations. Review of the bids will take approximately three weeks.
