Jackson County Public Works
November, 2013 - Performance Contracting, Inc. will begin making exterior repairs to the building sometime around the first of December. Work may be sporadic depending upon weather conditions, but the overall scope of the project includes power washing the entire building, tuckpointing, caulking and some sidewalk repair. The work should be totally complete in late spring. Cost for this contract is $325,000.
Burns and McDonnell has been awarded the contract to design major renovations for the Eastern Jackson County Courthouse (formerly called the Jackson County Courthouse Annex). HOK is providing courtroom planning and design.
The renovations are expected to include five new courtrooms with associated support space, another elevator and a new egress stairway. The renovations address the need for more courtroom space as population growth continues to occur in the eastern part of the county.
The space for the additional courtrooms is a result of moving county operations, including the Recorder of Deeds, Collections Department and Assessment Department, to the Historic Jackson County Truman Courthouse. Those moves will happen in late summer or early fall 2013. It is expected to take nearly a year for the design to be completed.
