This project is in two phases. The first phase renovated the hearing room, conference room, and anteroom on the third floor of the Council Office Building (COB) which had not been renovated in at least 30 years. The first phase was completed in 2009. The second phase replaces the HVAC system, the lighting systems, windows in the rest of the COB, upgrades restrooms to ADA standards, renovates the auditorium on the first floor, provides improved signage inside and outside the buildings, refreshes common areas, and reconfigures space on the fourth, fifth, and sixth floors for the Council Office and the Office of Legislative Oversight (OLO) staff.

Heating ventilation, and air condition in the COB function poorly, and most of the restrooms are not compliance with updated ADA standards or high performance building standards.The Council Office and OLO have far outgrown their space since it was last reconfigured more than 25 years ago. The 1st Floor Auditorium, which is used regularly for County Government staff training and as a meeting place by civic organizations, is extremely substandard.

Fiscal Note:
An audit by Energy Service Company (ESCO) has been conducted, and it has determined that $3.3 million in savings can be anticipated from this project. An Energy Savings Performance Contract (ESPC) will allow for third-party funding to cover this portion of the contract, so that no General Obligation Bonds are required for it. A financing mechanism is initiated to cover the cost of the contract and the repayment of debt is guaranteed through the energy savings.
