Courthouse workplan shaping up

Monday, July 30, 2001

At its Fourth Tuesday meeting, the County Board met with architect David Kane, of Kane & Johnson, Inc., Rochester, and worked out a phased schedule of renovations for the courthouse.

The commissioners had hoped to replace the windows in the courthouse this fall, but learned that the necessary lead-time for design and manufacture of the windows will be 15 to 16 weeks. Architect Kane recommended the commissioners wait until next spring to replace the windows.

Though this news seemed disappointing to some commissioners, Mr. Kane laid out a plan that would have the new, custom-made windows delivered during the winter and installed during April of 2002.

Kane’s first phase of the plan recommends the installation of the windows next spring, and the construction of a new, independent power plant next spring and summer that would provide heat to the building’s existing distribution system by the fall of 2002.

Phase Two would have the courtroom and judicial areas renovated, remodeled and/or rebuilt, followed by the remodeling of one floor of the courthouse in Phase Three and the other floor in Phase Four.

Mr. Kane also presented an estimate of the cost of Phase One. The estimate also included some costs for the new heating and cooling distribution system that may not be installed until phase 3.

The cost of the new windows will run about $195,000, and an additional $8,000 will be needed for asbestos abatement when the old windows are removed. The new power plant building will run about $200,000, but the electrical and mechanical work alone could be as much as $1.15 million.

With architect design fees and a 10% contingency, Mr. Kane estimates the windows and a complete new HVAC (Heating, Ventilating, Air Conditioning) system will cost $1,837,000.

The Board gave Kane the go-ahead to prepare formal proposals for the work as outlined in Phase One, so that a contract can be signed with the architectural firm by the August 7 board meeting.

The board also met with acting County Engineer Gene Ulring and Assistant County Engineer Thomas Miles to review the county’s highway Workplan for the 2001 and 2002 construction seasons.

The plan that engineer Ulring presented to the board was actually the first two years of the five year plan which was previously developed by the former engineer Steve Voigt. However, the plan has been updated .....
