Visitors to the James City County Government Complex can expect to see changes to one of the buildings in the next few weeks.
The James City County Board of Supervisors approved nearly $175,000 in renovations to Building B in the complex. The building currently houses the county Treasurer and Commissioner of the Revenue offices and covers about 8,638 square feet.
The Board of Supervisors considered four bids for the renovation:
- Henderson, Inc. — $174,583
- Noah Enterprises, Inc. — $241,300
- Caspian Construction, LLC — $242,000
- David A. Nice Builders — $284,500
Henderson, Inc. submitted the low bid and received the contract.
James City County Director of General Services John Horne said the renovation was motivated by the recent relocation of the county Voter Registrar office to Building E in the complex, creating more space in Building B.
“It was the right time for the project,” he said.
The work will largely reconfigure the interior of the building, demolishing a wall, parts of a drop ceiling and the existing Treasurer’s service counters. New service counters and walls, along with upgraded electrical and plumbing work will also be done.
Horne said the renovations would make the building more efficient for both employees and patrons.
Horne said work on the renovation should begin in the next few weeks, with completion expected by early December.
