G4. Contract with Owen-Ames-Kimball Company for the Construction of Public Safety Station #2 (Bid Ref# 90900-009.0)

A $9,460,470 contract was approved with Owen-Ames-Kimball Company, 161 E. Michigan Ave., Kalamazoo, MI 49007 for the purpose of building a new Public Safety Station #2.

The current Station #2, located at 1207 Bryant, was constructed in 1952 and no longer meets the needs of the organization. KDPS staff worked with DLZ to design a new facility that will meet the current Public Safety needs with enough space for future growth. The facility design incorporates many sustainability elements that will result in Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification. KDPS and City staff have met throughout the design phase with the Edison and Milwood Neighborhood Associations and adjacent residents. The total construction cost for the new Public Safety Station #2 is $9,460,470.
