County officials determined it necessary to consolidate Public Works operations to one location to keep pace with community needs. LGA was contracted by the County in 2006 to provide full-scale master planning and design services for a 77.5-acre site leased from the Bureau of Land Management. Located in the burgeoning southwest corner of the valley, the Multi-Use Service Center was master planned using a 20-year lens, with a proposed phased build-out of four years. In designing the comprehensive $93.1 million campus, LGA not only assessed the current and future needs/priorities of multiple agency divisions, our firm addressed issues pertinent to adjacent residents, including property values, traffic control, noise and light mitigation, and visual aesthetics.
Phase I was to include a construction laboratory for the Clark County Public Works Construction Management Division and Surveyor Division. This project was shelved in 2009 during the recession.
In 2013, the project was resurrected with a new Phase I that is to provide a 54,000 sf building including a construction laboratory and offices for the Construction Management Division; offices, shops and warehouse for the Traffic Division; offices and a start-off area for forty field staff of the Roads Division; and a GPS office for the County Surveyor’s Division. Also included is a 37,500 sf fenced exterior storage for the Traffic Division. This project provides visitor parking, staff parking and fleet parking. One of the major features of the project is an RF tower with two antennae, one to broadcast the program that controls the school flashers and the other to broadcast the GPS information for surveying. Phase 1 is currently under construction. The project budget was $19,500,000 and the bid amount is approximately $17,900,000.
