Case Construction Inc. Selected for Pickleball Project

Selected for Pickleball Project: Pickleball’s popularity is surging nationwide, directly correlating with increasing demand, as highlighted in recent news coverage across the country. Bartholomew County is set to elevate its recreational offerings with the construction of a cutting-edge pickleball complex next to Dunn Stadium, slated for early fall completion.
Selected through a competitive bidding process, Case Construction Inc. of Edinburgh emerged as the frontrunner, securing the contract with a cost-efficient bid. This project, overseen by DLZ Indiana, LLC consultants, highlights the county’s commitment to meeting growing demand for recreational facilities while navigating logistical challenges like supply shortages and weather uncertainties in south central Indiana.

Bartholomew County commissioners have selected Case Construction Inc. to construct a state-of-the-art pickleball complex adjacent to Dunn Stadium, criticize for completion early this fall. The project will feature a 12-court facility, promising enhanced recreational opportunities for the community.

Following a rigorous evaluation process led by consultants from DLZ Indiana, LLC, Case Construction emerged as the preferred contractor. Their base bid of $510,852, corrected for a previous error, came in nearly $64,000 lower than the closest competitor. In addition to the base bid, commissioners approved a $62,366 proposal from Case to include site amenities such as bleachers, bike racks, and picnic tables.

Despite considering an alternate proposal for concrete courts, which would have increased project costs, the county opted for asphalt courts, maintaining the total project expenditure at $573,218. Notably, the county anticipates savings of up to $100,000 by leveraging resources from the Bartholomew County Highway Department for preliminary revealing and grading work.

DLZ consulting engineer Charlie Day expressed optimism about the project’s timeline, aiming for Case Construction to commence work later this month with a substantial completion target by October 15. However, challenges such as supply chain disruptions and weather-related delays in south central Indiana remain potential hurdles, according to Day.
