Description

New Buffalo Township Hall


Location:New Buffalo, Michigan

The New Buffalo Township Hall renovation project (Approximately 8200 SF) commenced several years before design or construction took place. Wightman & Associates,Inc. was commissioned to conduct a building study and ADA barrier free report for the existing Township Hall - Fire Station facility. The growing township had three choices in expanding their facilities to grow and serve the residents: abandon the existing building and move to an adjacent office property, demolish the existing facility and build new, or relocate the fire department and renovate the entire facility for the township hall. All building systems, condition of the structure, and site location were evaluated for the existing township hall and for the adjacent office building. It was determined that solution would be to renovate and expand the existing township hall.

Key Design elements:

• Complete transformation of existing building to accommodate administrative offices, building department and new meeting hall / community room for 120 people.

• Expanded lobby to promote gathering and social interaction, relocate entry and added tower to create welcoming iconic element and added outdoor arbor seating areas.

• Existing fire station bays transformed into private offices.

• All new mechanical, electrical and plumbing systems. New windows, exterior insulation and siding.

There will be 1.0 HSW LU available to attendees.

There will also be a raffle for door prizes for those who attend. You are invited to stay in the area for dinner (run your own tab) with your fellow members after the tour.
