RECOMMENDATION
Discuss and consider making a finding for the method of procurement (request of competitive bids)for the Renovation and Expansion of the Bishop Library; and authorize the purchasing agent to publish a notice.
BACKGROUND
The scope of work includes demolition of existing corridor walls, and adjacent current office spaces, to create a larger room for increased shelving and books. The expanded space will also provide a more defined location for the Librarian and small circulation desk. A new conference room will be added in the Southeast corner of the expansion. This room will include a counter with a sink and upper cabinets. We will also remove the existing windows on three sides of the new expansion, and install new high windows to allow natural light into the space, and provide needed wall space for bookshelves. We are also upgrading the existing public restrooms. This upgrade will include new ADA compliant Men's and Women's, single use restrooms, with required janitor's closet and sink, and new ADA compliant drinking fountains. We are also installing a new handicapped ramp at the front entry, and upgrading the existing ramp at the South entrance. New security sensors will be installed at the library entrance door as requested by the county. We are also providing new lighting and minor HVAC renovations throughout the updated spaces. New finishes will include new vinyl plank flooring, paint, and new floor and wall tile in the restrooms.
