City Council Approves Construction Budget of the New College Park Woods Club House

At last week’s meeting, the Council approved an amendment to the contract with Broughton Construction Company for the scope and design of the College Park Woods Clubhouse, for an increase in cost of $445,106, bringing the total cost of the updated Design Build Contract for the College Park Woods Clubhouse to $999,776.

On August 19, 2019 the City awarded a design-build contract valued at $554,670.36 to the Broughton Construction Company. The contractor’s initial bid was based on an anticipated simple design with off-the-shelf materials. Consequently, the RFP referenced that “the new design shall be compatible with the residential nature of the surrounding neighborhood, with more windows and a less utilitarian presentation.”

Several factors have contributed to these expanded costs such as the design expanded from 2,200 sq/ft to 2,400 sq/ft. Storefront window aspects were added to the front and rear of the new building. Gender-neutral restroom stalls were added along with a pitched flat roof, with a high open ceiling versus a gable roof. A retractable wall separator was added.
