Administrative Office Building
City of North Royalton
Hasenstab Architects provided professional design services for the renovation of a 14,900 square foot existing library building to house the City of North Royalton’s administrative offices.
The renovated space includes council chambers and seating for 100 people, meeting rooms, a mayor’s suite, a large community meeting room, finance offices, general offices for city operations and support space. The building facade was also upgraded and the surrounding site was landscaped to provide a park-like setting.
The main council chambers incorporated considerable technology and AV equipment including voice recording and translation equipment, a document camera and screen, a 90” flat screen TV at the head of the room and two additional 90” flat screen TVs for viewing by the gallery.
Careful communication and planning throughout all phases was necessary in order to meet the fast-tracked project schedule. By having the contractor on board from the start, the team was able to get valuable input on costs during the design process, thus controlling the final cost on the project. The team was also able to keep the project on schedule by identifying long lead times for materials early on and scheduling the purchases to meet deadlines.
Sustainable design and construction practices were utilized for this project and it is LEED® Certified.
