Design and Construction Administration for New Public Works Facility, and Municipal Complex Site Development and Permitting
Weston & Sampson prepared a feasibility study for a new Department of Public Works facility in the Town of Mansfield. We prepared a space needs assessment for the DPW operations, including highway and public buildings/special projects; developed multiple concepts for a town-owned parcel; prepared conceptual plans; and developed conceptual cost estimates. Subsequent to the initial study, Weston & Sampson worked with the town and its public safety consultant to develop a master plan for a municipal complex at the existing DPW site located at 500 East Street.
Our work associated with the subsequent consolidated municipal complex project included updating our initial space needs assessment, preparing building and site concepts for the preferred site, and preparing updated cost estimates. We also prepared PowerPoint presentations and 3-D computer-generated building models and presented them, along with the project, to the Board of Selectmen to assist in gaining their support. In addition, we assisted the DPW in developing informational support materials for the town residents as part of the community engagement/involvement component of the project.
The feasibility study and project marketing materials contributed to the town authorizing funding for a new $30 million municipal complex. Weston & Sampson is providing design and construction administration services for the new public works facility as well as the overall municipal complex site development and permitting.
