City Facilities Space Needs Analysis & Programming

The City of Suwanee is requesting proposals for professional services required to develop a comprehensive City Facilities Space Needs Analysis & Programming for the following three buildings/sites:

  • Municipal Court, located at 323 Buford Highway, was constructed in the 1960's as the original City Hall. It now functions solely as Municipal Court. The Court has outgrown this approximately 3,500 square foot* building and is looking for options to either renovate and possibly expand the current building or relocate to a different facility.
  • Fire Station #13, located at 343 Buford Highway, is an approximately 10,000 square foot* building built in the 1990's. The City leases the front half to Gwinnett County Fire Department, and they plan to vacate the building at the end of their lease in 2019 to move to a newly constructed station. The City uses the back half of the building for storage associated with police fleet maintenance, parks maintenance, and events.
  • The Gwinnett County Schools training facility is located on Buford Highway near the intersection with McGinnis Ferry Road (parcel 7-210-030). The facility is owned by the Gwinnett County Board of Education and the City is evaluating it for a potential acquisition.  The main building is an approximately 30,000 square foot* former school built in the 1930's and includes a theater, cafeteria, administrative offices, and classrooms.  A separate gymnasium building is also located on site, along with an outdoor bus driver training facility. The City may acquire part or all of the site.

*Analysis to confirm square footage of each building.

The City Council will be considering the 2017-2021 Capital Improvement Program (CIP) in late spring. Recommendations from this analysis will help guide funding allocations in the CIP. It is expected that the effort will include working with an internal committee of city staff and will take two to three months. The City has budgeted $48,000 for the analysis; this budget does not include any funding for final design of the agreed upon solutions.

The general scope of work shall include a review of the existing conditions, programming and space utilization, an urban design analysis to evaluate each site in the context of the Downtown Master Plan, and a final report and presentation to the City Council.

Proposals are due by 2:00 on Monday, March 7.
