The County has retained Sheladia Associates, Inc. to design the Damascus Senior Center Refurbishment and upon completion of the design phase perform construction administration tasks during the construction phase. The scope of work consists of addressing the findings of the Damascus Senior Center Facility Assessment which includes ADA remediations, building systems remediation, and improving the senior center by providing a new customer service front counter, reconfiguring lobby area to include a gathering area and computer stations, expanding the fitness room, renovating the restrooms, replacing the storefront entrances, new carpeting and paint, all new furniture and some shelving, adding a lactation room, providing an outdoor fitness area, improving the kitchen area, making changes to the two-wing-building HVAC system so that the Senior Center wing is served independently of the Library wing, and various other improvements. Sheladia Associates, Inc. will also design the Damascus Library Refurbishment given that the refurbishment work of both facilities will be done simultaneously since the Damascus Senior Center and the Damascus Library are located in their own wings of the same building and share the building entrance lobby.
