Roseville, Calif.- At their meeting September 2, the Roseville City Council approved the construction contract for a new city office building at 316 Vernon Street replacing the existing City Hall Annex building.
The construction schedule is aggressive. The City has an agreement with Sierra College to lease a floor of the building to be ready for their semester classes beginning January 2017.
We expect to keep all streets open around the site during construction, with some short intermittent closures during the delivery of building materials.
The 316 Vernon Street parking lot will permanently close on or around September 21, 2015
The drive-up post office boxes in the 316 Vernon parking lot will no longer be available for use effective September 10th. New post office boxes will be installed along Grant Street, on the other side of the post office building. These will not have drive-up access. The Sierra Gardens post office location will continue to offer drive-up service.
The FedEx box next to the existing building will be relocated to a spot near the front of the Blue Line Gallery at 405 Vernon Street. The pay phone alongside the existing building will be removed and not replaced.
The city utility payment drop-off box in the 316 Vernon Street parking lot has been moved to E. Washington Boulevard, the one-way street between Vernon and Atlantic Streets at the end of the 200 block of those streets.
A few parking spaces along Atlantic Street will be unavailable due to construction needs but most of the parking along the street will be available throughout construction.
Demolition of the existing City Hall Annex currently in this location will begin September 28, 2015. Building construction will begin in November 2015, lasting until March 2016. The building will be a precast concrete structure. All columns, girders, and skin panels are pre-manufactured offsite and trucked in when needed.
This method of construction will allow the building shell to be erected in a matter of 4-6 weeks and eliminates noise and other issues associated with steel frame construction. It also eliminates the need for large staging and material laydown areas.
Work on the interior of the building will then last until the end of 2016.
