Building Improvements

This project is the design and construction of the Parks Division offices at the existing building located at 330 E Lakeside Street. The existing building will serve as the new location for Parks Division offices with potential to provide rentable spaces for community and private events. The building requires system upgrades, ADA and other health and safety compliance modifications, workspace updates, architectural upgrades, rental space improvements, and site improvements. A phased approach will be utilized to complete the work and only Phase 1 will be implemented under this contract.
