The City of New Castle and Municipal Services Commission (MSC) of the City of New Castle contracted George, Miles, & Buhr, LLC (GMB) to conduct a feasibility study to determine the viability of utilizing two (2) existing City parcels on Wilmington Road, potentially in combination with one or two adjacent parcels of land, to support a combined City/MSC Administration building and other necessary storage spaces.
GMB prepared a report summarizing our findings and presented four (4) feasible concepts. Each concept included an analysis of existing conditions, clarifications, recommended layout, parking, cost estimate, and a 3D rendering.
Phase 2 work included two (2) additional concepts with modifications to the original Concepts A & B. The revised Concepts A and B were presented to the City/MSC in July 2021.
We are currently assisting the City and MSC with Phase 3 of this effort, which explores the possibility of utilizing an alternative parcel of land to house the new Police Department and Goodwill Fire Company facilities, thereby freeing up the existing City-owned Municipal Complex area for all other City/MSC building needs including, but not limited to, the new City/MSC Administrative Facility likely inside a rehabilitated police department structure.
Our services include Architectural Site Planning & Programming and Civil/Site Schematic Design. The MSC/City will use these findings to assess their best path forward with regard to their growing needs.
