BACKGROUND:

The Boulder County Parks and Open Space Department (BCPOS) is seeking bids from qualified and experienced Contractors for repairs needed on the McIntosh Barn, located at the Agricultural Heritage Center (AHC) property at 8348 Ute Highway, Longmont, CO 80503.

These services are required in order to repair the deteriorating sections of the barn’s stone foundation and construct the necessary support structures to prevent future deterioration.

In early 2021 during ADA access improvements to the barn, it was discovered that the southwest portion of the stone foundation wall was deteriorating and being pushed inward from the exterior soil.

The barn is individually listed as a Boulder County historic landmark for its contributions to the development of early 20th century agriculture. This project embodies Boulder County’s longstanding vision to preserve the rural character and cultural heritage of unincorporated Boulder County.

The selected Contractor will complete all aspects of the project before the December 31, 2022. If weather delays are encountered, BCPOS will work with the Contractor to adjust the project schedule.
