Hannah Administration - renovations to third floor

Project phase: Planning/Design


  • The Administration Building was constructed in 1968 and the third floor remains largely unchanged since opening the building 50 years ago.
  • The current space configuration is inefficient, lacks functionality, and does not provide adequate space given administrative and operational changes.
  • Addressing these inadequacies is necessary to accommodate realignment and changes in staffing, co-locate functional areas, increase occupancy and utilization and create a more collaborative and modern work environment.


  • As planning begins, the project is anticipated to include renovations to approximately 14,000 square feet of space on the third floor.
  • The renovations are anticipated to include reconfiguration of existing space that includes workspace for personnel; shared workroom and conference space; modifications and upgrades to utilities, technology, furnishings and finishes.


  • Construction start: TBD
  • Ready for occupancy: TBD


  • Based on cost experience for similar projects and current pricing information, the preliminary project cost estimate is $3,100,000 - $3,700,000. This estimate may change as the project and its scope are refined during the planning process. 
  • The source of funds for the project is expected to be from the general fund and/or debt financing with debt repayment from the general fund.
