Construction documents are now being prepared for the proposed Comox Valley Regional District (CVRD) regional office building, and staff expect to present them to the CVRD board in April, with estimates for Class B costs.
The building will be approximately 21,850 sq. ft., and is a two-storey, slab-on-grade, structural steel building consisting primarily of office space, with an area built to post-disaster standards to house a regional emergency operations centre, boardroom, archives and server room.
A building permit application is expected to be submitted to the City of Courtenay in April and it is expected staff will seek authorization from the board to proceed to tender at the same time. A ‘notice of upcoming tender’ is expected to be issued later in March with more information.
Awards for tenders could be made at the May or June CVRD board meeting. The project was estimated to cost $11.7 million in 2016. A revised site plan application has been submitted to the City of Courtenay requesting a variance for the setbacks and parking lot.
