November 25, 2019 Update:

Site Work: In November, the overlot excavation and export was completed, 70% of the water line was installed, and 30% of the site curb and gutter was installed. Weather has delayed the sitework and Xcel Energy has delayed the gas service lateral as well as the gas main lowering. In December, provided favorable weather and Xcel completes the gas main work, the remaining curb and gutter, sidewalks, and irrigation sleeving will be complete and possibly the first lift of asphalt will be placed.

Recreational Side: In November, the excavation of the warm pool, therapy pool, and spa was completed and the underground piping and structural foundation slabs have been prepared. The wall framing, mechanical, electrical, and plumbing (MEP) is near complete, 80 % of the drywall is finished, and 80% of the exterior windows have been installed. For December, the warm pool, therapy pool, and spa floors and walls will be poured, and work will begin on remaining underground piping and backfill in the natatoriums. In addition, drywall will be complete and building systems equipment will begin to be installed.

Community Side: In November, the exterior sheathing was completed, exterior insulation is 60% complete, roofing is 50% complete, interior masonry and steel stud partitions on the first floor are complete. In addition, the first floor interior ceiling rough-in is approximately 90% complete. In December, the anticipated work includes the continuation of the exterior insulation, masonry veneer work, and roofing work. In the interior, the overhead MEP and wall rough-ins should be finished on the 1st floor. On the second floor, the partition walls will be installed and the overhead MEP will begin.

The completion schedule for the new facility anticipates opening in phases with the south half of the facility, including administration offices, meeting rooms and Senior Services, opening in June of 2020 and the remaining facility, demolition of the existing Senior Center, and the remaining site work completing at the end of summer 2020.


Adolfson & Peterson Construction (AP) was awarded the Construction Manager/General Contractor (CM/GC) agreement by Council on January 23, 2018, authorizing the contractor to begin the preconstruction services to include constructability reviews and cost estimating to keep the project within budget. Davis has completed the Schematic Design (SD) design stage and is moving into the Design Development (DD) stage. The Concept Review for the Site Development Plan amendment was approved by Council at the April 3, 2018 Council Study Session with several comments. At the May 29, 2018 Council Study Session, the project team presented the current design of the project which was 96,088 square feet and a total project cost of $47.2 million. Council agreed to move forward with Design Development phase for the fully programmed facility as presented. The Site Development Plan (SDP) amendment was brought to the Planning & Zoning Commission on August 13th. The SDP amendment and an amendment to the CM/GC agreement with AP to add the construction scope with a Guaranteed Maximum Price (GMP) was brought to Council and approved on August 28, 2018. The start of the first phase of construction is anticipated to be the beginning of September.

On July 11, 2017, Council approved a consultant design award to Davis Partnership PC Architects (Davis). Design investigation, research, and public input process have been completed. With the guidance provided by the Stakeholder Committee (composed of representatives from PRAC, HHSAC, and the Senior Resource Board) and the numerous public comments received, Council authorized Staff to proceed with design based upon the 2-story conceptual design at the December 12, 2017, Council Study Session.

On May 23, 2017, Council authorized staff to pursue debt financing for a new Community Center. The project will construct a new two-story facility and will be phased such that the north wing of the facility (recreational area) will be demolished to allow space on the site for the new facility to be constructed, and allow the south wing (senior services area) of the building to remain open during construction. This phased method will require that some programs move to the Paul Derda Recreation Center while others would be suspended while the new facility is being constructed.

At the end of August 2018, Staff and Citizens participated in "BCC Demo Day 2018" to say THANK YOU and GOODBYE to our beloved BCC.
