County Building Progress

Posted: Updated:

Steel work is moving along on the new Ward County office building being constructed to the north of the current courthouse.

County commissioners got an update on the project today...

Don Davison with JLG Architects told commissioners today that most of the foundation work for the north part of the facility is done...and by mid-April the pre-cast walls should be going up.

He says while the work may be a week or two behind, it is still about where planners had expected to be...and that means some finalizing work needs to be done soon.

(Don Davison - JLG Architects) "We are getting to the point where we are going to start taking a real good look at floor plans and take a look at what goes inside the building before they start building it. I don't think there will be major changes, maybe minor, but I don't think there will be big cost adjustments."

Commissioners did discuss the renovation work at the current jail of the juvenile detention area.

Renovation work there was expected to cost about 800-thousand dollars...but initial estimates have come in about double that.

Commissioners expect to talk with the company making those estimates later this month about the issue.

Work on the jail expansion is expected to break ground this fall.
