Project Overview

This is a multi-phased project for office remodels on the first, fourth and fifth floors of the City County Building (CCB).

Phase 2 of CCB Office Remodels, First and Fifth Floors
Phase 2 of the remodel will include the Clerk, Assessor and Treasurer offices on the First Floor and the Common Council and Office of the Independent Police Monitor on the Fifth Floor. Many of these spaces are antiquated with little to no upgrades since they were originally built. This project will provide all offices with some daylighting, new mechanical systems, security and break rooms.
December 01, 2022: Due to current escalations in construction costs the scope of the existing Phase 2 of this project needed to be reduced in order to make budget. The design team is currently appending the construction drawings in preparation for bidding in January.  See below for the "Project Schedule - Phase 2 of CCB Office Remodels, First and Fifth Floors.

Phase 1 CCB (City County Building) Floors 1, 4 & 5 Pre-Design Study
August 2020: Under the new proposed budget the previous project of the CCB 4th and 5th floor remodel of city offices has been revised and re-prioritized to include city offices on the first floor as well. A new Request for Proposal (RFP) has been released for Architectural Design Services. The first phase of the project will be Master Planning and the Preliminary Design Phases for all three floors. This will then be followed up with a complete design of just the first floor and first floor construction. The next floor design will start while the previous floors construction is in progress. RFP responses and proposals are due in mid-September and we hope to have contracts signed and be under way around the holidays 2020.
March 01, 2021: The design contract has been routed and signed. Continuum Architects + Planners will begin with Stage 1-Master Planning of City offices on floors 1, 4, and 5 with an initial kickoff meeting in mid-March. This will be followed by several on site meetings to look at individual office spaces to understand work flow and review existing building conditions within each space. During the Master Planning Stage we will be looking several potential options for best fit and adjusting adjacencies of these departments which will set the foundation for future design phases.
August 23, 2022: Phase 1 – Master Planning of all three CCB floors was completed in December of 2021. Final review of the documentation was completed by City Staff in late January 2022, and Continuum was authorized to proceed with the Schematic Design phase for Phase 2. Phase 2 will consist of finalizing all of the individual design phases, bid, and construct (remodel) City owned spaces on the first and a portion of the fifth floor. These spaces include the offices of the City Assessor, Clerk, treasurer, and Department of Civil Rights on the first floor. The Common Council office and the Office of the Independent Monitor will be remodeled during this phase on the fifth floor. We have completed the Schematic Design for this phase which ensures the Master plan properly fits and starts putting finish elements into the floor plan. We are currently working on the Design Development aspect where we start incorporating more detail into the drawings including finish, furniture, lighting, equipment, audio/visual equipment and other specialty equipment as needed for each department. Phase 3 will be the design/construction of city offices on the fourth floor (City Attorney, Mayor, Finance Department). At this time we anticipate this phase beginning design in 2023 and construction in 2024. Phase 4 will be the design/construction of city offices on the fifth floor (City Information Technology Department and City Engineering-Facility Management). At this time we anticipate this phase beginning design in 2024 and construction in 2025.
