Municipal Complex Update - Week of May 22, 2017

Posted on May 23, 2017 at 9:11 AM by David Marino

With each week that passes, the Municipal Complex gets closer to completion.  City Hall is coming together nicely.
“The roof deck for the lower level has been installed. We’ll start the decking for the second floor for the City Hall and then the roof area for that shortly after,” said Project Manager Ray Creswell.
The steel for the library will arrive at the end of this week, but we’re still a few weeks away from it being erected. Steel for the public space has arrived. 
Meanwhile, the head wall for the pedestrian bridge has been finished. The bridge will connect the parking lot to the building. 
Work also continues on the Public Safety Building.  
"They’re starting on the roofing itself and then they’ll start installing the exterior sheathing. The material is now sitting out there in front of the Public Safety Building."
Crews are starting to work on the police department parking lot.
"They are starting to lay out the Public Safety Building parking lot, the islands and the curb lines. They should start pouring the curbs later this week."   
Despite the rain we’ve seen over the last week, crews have been able to make progress.
"Actually I was totally surprised with the amount of rain that we had Sunday evening, there has been very little slowing down," said Creswell. "The steel erectors were not able to get to the site due to the mud, but that was only a slight delay on the steel."

City Hall/Library and Public Safety Building Update - May 16, 2017

Work continues to move full steam ahead on the Municipal Site. 

“It’s real exciting to see the building start to come together," said City Manager Kenneth Williams. 

From the bond election in 2014 to now, City Manager Kenneth Williams has been there every step of the way. He says the new Municipal Complex will streamline City operations.

“This is going to be a centralized location for government for us. This will enable us to be a more productive organization. We’ll be able to have all of our engineering, planning and departments in one place.

Now that the steel frame is in place for City Hall, work will begin on the exterior walls. The floor deck and roof deck installation will also start. Steel for the public space will arrive this week as well.

The steel for the library will arrive next week and it will be erected in a few weeks. Meanwhile, wall work and stone installation continues on the drainage channel.

And then of course there is the Public Safety Building.

“The Public Safety Building is a big part of this. You know public safety is important to the quality of life in Buda. And it was very important to myself and the City Council to be a part of this project. I’m just looking forward to the project coming into place.”

Exterior Walls continue to go up on the Public Safety Building. Roofing will begin this week.  

With more and more work being completed every day, there is a light at the end of the tunnel. The Public Safety Building is slated to open in late October, or early November of this year. The City Hall and Library will be finished by April of 2018.    

“Through it all we’ll have something that the citizens will have and will be able to use for many, many years into the future.”
