Scope of Work

Cheever Construction will be bidding as Prime Contractor on the Lancaster County Emergency Management Relocation and Renovation.

The project involves the relocation of the Lancaster County Emergency Management Agency (LCEMA) from their existing facilities in downtown Lincoln into a portion of a vacant wing at the Youth Services Center in south Lincoln.  The approximate area of 
renovation is around 5,000sf.  The LCEMA requires an ICC 500-2014 compliant storm shelter.  The existing Youth Services Center structure does not comply so the extent of work will involve the removal of approximately 2,600sf of existing roof and associated structural framing, existing slabon-grade,and excavation of soil within the boundary of the existing exterior wall assembly.  The new ICC 500-2014 compliant shelter will require new footings, independent, fully grouted load-bearing masonry walls, a precast structural roof with concrete topping and a new roof assembly.  

Interior renovation of the remaining space will also include a complete interior gut that includes carpet, ceiling assemblies, interior CMU partition walls and other interior finishes.  New finishes will include new CMU partitions, light gauge framing with painted GWB finishes, carpetand tile floors, raised access flooring and new suspended ceiling assemblies.  The existing mechanical system will be reconfigured and routed to accommodate the new finishes and a new emergency backup system will be provided for the ICC 500 compliant  portion of the project aswell as new data services and electrical specific for the LCEMA space.

Minimal sitework will be required.  Extent of work includes modifications to the existing security fencing, removal of some existing pavement and addition of other paving along with grading work as necessary to provide a new independent accessible entrance for the LCEMA on the north side of the building.  Additional site work will be required for the installation of a new emergency generator within the secured fence area.
