CHARLESTON CIVIC CENTER TO ADVERTISE DESIGN-BUILD PROJECT

The City of Charleston will soon advertise a RFQ from teams wishing to be qualified to design- build an approximate $50 million addition and renovation to the Charleston Civic Center. The scope of the project will include the addition of a new grand ballroom, meeting rooms, kitchen and back of house operations, and mechanical system. The project also envisions a new entrance to the Coliseum along Clendenin Street as well as additional concession areas and restrooms. Renovations will be done to existing meeting rooms and building infrastructure.
 

The city hired Odell Associates, Charlotte, to serve as Criteria Developer. They have been meeting with Civic Center staff, clients, meeting planners and others over the past six months to determine what should be incorporated in the renovated facility. The renovations are being financed by revenue from a tax increment finance district downtown and a recently passed half cent city sales tax. Exact dates the submission of RFQs will be in future Building Bulletins but the initial plan is to advertise for design build team qualifications November 3 with three finalists be identified by Dec. 19, and the winning firm will be tentatively be selected by March 23. The two unsuccessful teams will each receive a $100,000 stipend. Construction could begin spring of 2015 and be completed within 28 to 36 months. A major factor for design build teams will be to develop a schedule that allows the Civic Center to continue operation, especially during its peak operating times.

 

Odell is completing contract documents, including developing the criteria for award of the contract to the successful proposer. Odell will share with design build teams their renderings, which proposes glass, airy corridors, outdoor plaza and incorporation of the Elk River into the design of the facility. Design build teams will be free to expand upon Odell’s concept but the documents will specify what must be included in the final design.

 

Odell’s presentation before Monday’s meeting of the City Council Finance Committee is available by clicking the attached link.

W.Va. Public Broadcasting to rebuild Beckley studio

 

Beckley’s West Virginia Public Broadcasting studio will be invigorated with a $750,000 grant from the U.S. Department of Agriculture. The money will be used to rebuild its television studio in Beckley and create a mobile studio. “This will allow us to do a much better job telling the story of southern West Virginia,” said Scott Finn, executive director of West Virginia Public Broadcasting. “We’re excited to be able to bring the Beckley studio back to life.” The studio was decommissioned more than a decade ago, in part because the broadcast agency did not have the funds to upgrade the facility from analog to digital production. Among other upgrades, the federal funds will pay cameras, editors and control equipment. The grant also will assist with the production of children’s television show “Abracadabra” in Beckley. The show, hosted by West Virginia School of Osteopathic Medicine president Dr. Michael Adelman, combines magic and ventriloquism with nutrition, health, exercise and safety.
