A dedicated Build 2020 Team has been meeting twice a month since October to keep the process of moving towards renovations and improvements for our UUCW building! Many conversations revolved around the priorities and goals of the project, determining if a design/build or architectural firm should be hired, and how to create the RFQ, Request for Qualifications which will be used to invite design/build firms to consider working with us. The Team will work with the Board of Trustees in April to choose a firm.
To refresh your memory, our Build 2020 Goals include :
Major maintenance to systems and components of our UUCW buildings and grounds: HVAC upgrades for entire building • Replace roof systems • Address water infiltration issues and improve drainage of our site • Rebuild parking lot • Upgrade technology to accommodate network and audiovisual needs • Energy efficient window systems • Additional insulation.
Improved Accessibility: An elevator (or other options) that would allow those who have limited mobility or use mobility aids to access all three levels of our building. • “Barrier free” washroom and better access to bathrooms (without long waits) for people of all genders.
Offices for UUCW Staff that improve collaboration, good meeting space for adults and kids, and rental spaces that will help provide income.
