City of Belmont Police
The City of Belmont had completed a fully developed set of construction documents for a project budgeted at $5.2 million but estimated at $7.4 million. Unable to value engineer (VE) the project to the required budget with the existing design team, the City engaged KMD Justice to assist. The original budget was adjusted to $6.4 million due to the addition of a number of new project components, including council chambers, site enhancements, and photovoltaic panels on the roof. The three-story, 43,000 sf facility was substantially gutted and the new floor plates include existing City offices on the third level, a new entry lobby, council chambers, site work and renovation for the full service, 18,900 square foot police department.
