Item Description:


Discussion on the Park Maintenance Facilities Improvements Project, PN 6-C-001-18..




The Parks Operations division is currently located 404 N. K-7 Highway at Spruce Street.  Due to redevelopment opportunities at this location, the City has determined it necessary to construct a new facility for this division.  This project is for the planning, design and construction of new office space, shop space, and site storage space.  The site for this project is the recently acquired property west of, and adjacent to, the City’s Public Works campus.


On November 6, 2018, City Council approved an agreement with McCownGordon Construction to provide, along with The Clark Enersen Partners, Design/Build services for the Park Maintenance Facility Improvements Project. The project is proceeding on a “fast-track” schedule to construct a new location for the Park Maintenance operation which, due to sale of the property, is scheduled to be displaced within the next twelve months.


The Design/Build team has met with the City stakeholders numerous times to assess the 70-acre parcel, to evaluate space needs and to determine an appropriate construction budget. Subsequent working sessions were held to develop a functional, cost-effective design.


The McCownGordon/Clark Enersen team will present to the City Council the design development plans. This presentation will focus on providing the City Council an understanding of the project design, including the site layout, the building exterior, and the interior spaces. Input and direction received from the City Council will be incorporated into the final construction documents.


The Park Maintenance Facilities Improvements Project design and construction schedule tentatively accommodates a May 2020 closing date for the sale of the existing Spruce St. campus.
