[ARCHIVED] Civic Center project off to quick start

     When the Spring Hill Civic Center reopens next year, it will hardly be recognizable.

     Acting as a central space for public services, recreational activities, group meetings and performing arts, a roughly $2.8 million project began on the Civic Center last month.

     Crews with Loyd Builders, Ottawa, began work June 19 with an asbestos abatement. Drop ceilings were removed along with the original tile flooring and carpet in other areas of the building. After the abatement was completed last month, crews began sealing the concrete with a protective coating.

     Though it won’t look like an extensive renovation is happening from the outside, crews will begin demolition inside the building over the next two months. Doors will begin to be framed along with entrances and storefronts. Mechanical, electrical and plumbing systems will be roughed in. Drywall will begin to go up. Other portions of the revitalization will begin in the fall.

     The building will receive attention in every aspect including the installation of energy-efficient windows, ADA-accessible features, new finishings and an improved heating and cooling system. Other areas including the gymnasium and the reception room will receive extensive attention as well with new flooring and ceilings and a new kitchen in the reception room, making them accessible to the public year-round.

     In October last year, the Spring Hill City Council approved a project authorization resolution 5-0 to allow city staff to move forward on a plan to renovate the Civic Center.

     In the past, residents have expressed concern over the state of the more than 65-year-old building. In the years to follow, minimal investments were made to the midcentury building, which began to show signs of age. The building began to experience cosmetic, security, structural and mechanical problems, limiting its abilities for the public.

    By early 2018, the project is expected to be complete, barring any setbacks or weather.

     Check the city’s website and social media pages for updates throughout the revitalization.
