JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Officials have selected the low bidder to undertake a renovation project involving the Missouri Senate chamber.

The state Office of Administration says work should begin in mid-to-late October on the project. It chose a $429,000 bid from Five Oaks Associates, of Centralia.

The project will remove staff offices that had been built in an open space overlooking the dais at the front of the chamber. The intent is to restore the chamber to its original appearance while also making the space available for Senate committee meetings.

The overall budget for the project is about $650,000 when design fees, hazardous materials testing and other costs are included.

It’s one of several projects going forward at the Capitol, although Gov. Jay Nixon has frozen hundreds of millions of dollars of other spending.
