Below is an update from Wilmington Elderly Services Director Terri Marciello, published in the Senior Center’s latest Buzzell Buzz newsletter:
WILMINGTON, MA — Here’s what has been happening since our last update in the July Newsletter:
The Senior Center Building Committee met on July 6 with the project architect, Dietz & Co., along with our Owner’s Project Manager (OPM). The Committee reviewed the project schematic design narrative (14 pages) and schematic design plans (7 sheets) prepared by the architect. The narrative includes programming and layout overview; interior finishes; exterior details; building envelope; structural systems; heating, ventilating and air condition systems; electrical; and site work. These documents will be given to the independent project cost estimator to assist in preparing the cost estimate.
Test borings have been done on the site. They will be used to assist the structural engineer in designing the building foundation.
The OPM expects the preliminary cost estimate to be ready for review at the Committee meeting on August 17. The final cost estimate is expected to be completed by mid-September.
The next Committee Meeting is Wednesday, August 3 at 6 PM in the Town Hall.
The Committee along with the Town Hall/School Administration Building Committee will be attending the Board of Selectmen Meeting on Monday August 8 to review the status of each project and to discuss the Special Town Meeting, which has been tentatively scheduled for Saturday November 19, 2022.
The feasibility study and schematic design phase are nearing completion. Stay involved. Attend the Committee meeting on August 3 and the important Board of Selectmen Meeting on August 8. This is your opportunity to show your support for the project. This is your Senior Center. Let’s make it what you want.
