State Street Garage Update- October 24, 2012

Please be aware that we will have a lane closure along Central Avenue beginning today. This closure will be in the western lane along the State Street Garage in order to begin the work needed for the foundation  and new addition.

Additionally, as I stated in the last post, it will be necessary to remove some of the trees along the building this week.
We have engaged a landscape architect to help us plan for the new design upon project completion and actually met today on site to make sure we are doing all we can to insure a fantastic look while moving the project forward.

The bid packages have gone out and replies are due back to Retenbach Constructors, Inc. by November 14, 2012. Below is the notice placed in the News Sentinel:

Bid Advertisement State Street Garage One-Level Expansion Remaining Scopes of Work Public Building Authority Rentenbach Constructors Incorporated as Construction Manager/General Contractor (CM/GC) for the Public Building Authority is soliciting bids for the remaining scopes of work excluding those scopes already awarded (cast-in-place concrete, precast concrete, micropiles and elevators). Bid Package Manual may be obtained by contacting Neal Woodland or Doug Pettit at 865-546-2440. Bid Date and time is set for November 14, 2012 at 2:00 PM at the offices of Rentenbach Constructors Incorporated, 2400 Sutherland Avenue, Knoxville, TN 37919. Rentenbach is an equal opportunity employer.

Lastly, here are some renderings of the garage addition and overpass with the roof. We are still looking at alternatives for the actual roof design so this is not the finished product. Thanks to Nathan Honeycutt of McCarty Holsaple McCarty for providing these pictures which were used during our Public Hearing presentation last week.


Now that construction has begun, I plan to post here more frequently.
Thanks for your interest in this project.
