The second floor will be occupied by the administrative staff within the Recreation & Parks and Public Works Departments, an EOC and an adjacent office for the Emergency Manager, training and conference rooms, support space in the form of satellite offices for the Human Resources and Information Technology (IT) Departments and an IT server room.

Systematic improvements include within the project limits (north wing and atrium): roof replacement, HVAC system replacement, window system replacement, water service improvements, installation of an emergency generator and enclosure, restroom renovations, water heaters and circulation pumps, and fire system upgrades. The project consists of the furnishing of all labor, materials, equipment, tools and services for the upgrades and other associated work as specified in the contract documents.
