Architect for a new combined maintenance facility project for two governmental clients. The buildings, originally built during WWII to dry and make hemp ropes, contained little or no insulation in the walls or ceilings, suffered from functional/organizational issues, had major structural deficiencies and had several major health and environmental code deficiencies. CBS began working with the County in 2005 and completed the full study in 2010. The study also included a cost /benefit analysis – comparing the costs for remodeling the existing dysfunctional facility with building a new facility, set to meet the County’s 20 year plan. CBS completed a smaller study for the City of Jackson and subsequently provided full Architectural Services thru Construction Administration for the Combined Maintenance Facility. Estimated conjoined construction costs were $15 million. Project was completed in 2014. Estimated savings to the Jackson City / County tax payer: $500,000 to $1 million in non-duplicated dollars.
