The City Council approved Resolution No. 09R, Series of 2021; Approving Proposal for Engineering / Design / Bidding / Construction Contract / Asbestos Testing Services by Klingner & Associates P.C. for Exterior Repairs to the Public Works Building. The Public Works building is an existing one-story building with exterior bearing walls made of concrete masonry units and brick and a low slope roof that is framed with wood trusses; and floors of concrete and exposed aggregate. The City desires to have the construction of the Public Works Building Renovation project be split into two (2) phases.
In order to create a cohesive exterior look and construct a more energy-efficient building envelope, plans are to add an EIFS (exterior insulation finish system) to the existing exterior building façade. Will also address the existing deficiencies in the masonry and mortar prior to concealing with the EIFS. The existing roof will be replaced with new rigid board insulation and EPDM roofing membrane along with parapet wall caps and new gutter and downspouts tied into existing drain tile. Existing doors including overhead doors and windows will be replaced as necessary. No windows are desired on the west-side of the building thus the windows will be removed and the opening will be infilled. The existing clerestory windows along the other sides of the building will be replaced with new thermally broken windows and/or translucent wall system. Existing masonry openings will receive new masonry lintels. A new building-mounted exterior sign is included in the design. The electrical service will be replaced and routed underground. A new generator along with fuel storage tanks will be included in phase 1 along with exterior building mounted lighting. A new concrete slab will be provided at the north-side of the building to replace the existing asphalt and new concrete slab approaches will be located at each door.
Phase 2 will include interior projects: The existing office, break room, kitchen area, and restrooms will be renovated as well as building out the Gas Department's restroom and floor. A concrete slab with trench drain will be added to the empty garage bay. Two (2) welding stations with hood will be planned along the east portion of the building. Public Works to use the south overhead door entrance area to wash vehicles and equipment. The area will be planned to be mold and moisture resistant with a curtain to control the overspray. Mechanical, electrical, plumbing (MEP) will be replaced throughout the building with exception of the existing water service.
