BODY

SUMMARY STATEMENT OR LEGAL NOTICE LANGUAGE:

 

Facilities Management is seeking Council approval on June 16th, 2020 for the RMC Architects  PLLC contract, the County hired RMC Architects, PLLC to do a feasibility study at the Northwest Annex site, located at the corner of Smith and Northwest Roads. On this site is a 100+ year old building that currently houses Planning, Permitting and some Public Works functions. The building, previously a Care Facility was purchased and remodeled in the early 1990’s and is dilapidated beyond feasible repair. The study will include preliminary architectural design of the proposed  three building master plan anticipated for the Capital Facilities redevelopment of the Northwest Annex site, including design development, preliminary floor plans, construction methodology and type, cost estimating and preliminary budget for construction and implementation of the plan. This will provide a valuable tool for the County in budget preparation and preparedness should funds become available. The County will be able to react quickly to execute a plan once the study is complete.
