Judicial/Police/Jail complex gets past another hurdle

-A A +A
By Jennifer Garcia

The Los Alamos County Judicial/Police/Jail project cleared another hurdle at the county council meeting last night when Public Works Director Kyle Zimmerman presented the Design and Development Review at 60 percent to council and asked for authorization to move forward to final design. The motion was passed 6-1, with Councilor Robert Gibson voting against it.

The purpose of the report and presentation was to bring council up to date on the design changes that have been implemented since the 30 percent design review and to seek council direction regarding any desired revisions before the project is awarded for Construction Manager at Risk services.

During the meeting, a slideshow was presented to provide council with layouts of public and staff parking; show the overall site plan; show plans for the police, jail and judicial areas; and show a plan for the future second floor to Building A-Jail.

Multiple elevations and the materials being considered for use were also included, as well as an outline of changes that have evolved since the Schematic Design 30 percent presentation to council and the schedule.

Following the slideshow presentation by a representative from WHPacific, Councilor Nona Bowman and Councilor Ken Milder expressed concern regarding unassigned space on the second floor that was shown in the floor plans.
