We are planning to release a Tender for the Cortes Seniors Village expansion on February 25th. Please NOTE, this information is being sent along now to give folks on Cortes an early heads up. Kinetic Construction will be the General Contractor for CISS working with sub-contractors. There may be an opportunity for individuals to work directly for Kinetic, but that will not be confirmed until later.
