School district selects general contractor

for Whale Branch gym, performing arts center


BEAUFORT – The Beaufort County School District has selected a general contractor to supervise the building of a competition gymnasium and a performing arts center for Whale Branch Early College High School.


South Carolina-based M.B. Kahn Construction, which has offices across the Southeast, was the district’s top choice at the end of a selection process regulated by district and state procurement policies.  The company, rated by Engineering News Record as one of the nation’s Top 100 construction management firms, has completed more than 340 K-12 school projects over the past two decades.


Six firms submitted proposals for the two Whale Branch projects, and their proposals were independently evaluated and scored by a panel of reviewers.  Each of the six competing companies was rated based on the quality of its experience, past performance, personnel and the specifics of its project proposal.


As the district’s general contractor, M.B. Kahn will be responsible for supervising all aspects of building Whale Branch Early College High School’s new competition gym as well as its new performing arts center.  District officials hope to open the school’s new competition gym in fall 2018 and the performing arts center in spring 2019.
