The Army Reserve 652nd Engine Company’s move to Hammond from Ellsworth has cleared another hurdle.
The multi-million dollar contract was awarded to The Selmer Company of Green Bay on Sept. 30. The company has an impressive portfolio, including the Green Bay Packer Hall of Fame, waterparks, hospitals and retail stores. They have completed other government-contracted work as well.
This is their first project in this area.
Included in the Reserve facility will be a training building, organizational maintenance shop, unheated storage buildings and parking.
Mike Abhold of The Selmer Company said they have the plans ready to go, but site work can’t start until the government gives the OK to begin.
After they get the notice to proceed from the government, Abhold said they have 540 days to complete the work.
The Selmer Company expects to use local companies as sub-contractors for some of the work, Abhold said. He added that they haven’t looked into hiring yet.
The building site is just west of County Road J, immediately west of St. Croix Electric’s headquarters building.
