Clemson, SC--Clemson University construction services opened bids,
December 9, 2004, for construction of Phase I of the West End Zone
Project. Two bids were received, however both bid amounts exceeded
the state-approved construction budget estimate. Within the next
three weeks, Clemson will analyze the bids and the underlying cost
estimates used for the budget and evaluate options.

The options may include awarding the contract to the apparent
low bidder after increasing the project's funding, declining all bids
and soliciting new bids, or separating the construction contract into
a site package and a building package.

According to a statement from Director of Athletics Terry Don
Phillips, the project will remain on schedule. "Regardless of which
option we choose, we have already begun the initial phase of
demolition and we will begin site-work early in the year in order to
stay on schedule for completion in fall 2006."
