Richmond City Hall

Overaa Green Project

Project Details

Design-build renovation and rehabilitation of a 70,000 SF steel-framed city hall and adjacent former police department into a new, seismically upgraded LEED Gold Essential Services Facility (ESF). Steel bracing and concrete shear walls were added, new exterior stone cladding was installed; existing historic brick cladding and MEP systems and interiors were restored; existing historic building elements were renovated; and significant building waterproofing and drainage systems were provided. Scope also included a new roof, glass and brickwork, disability access, Life/Safety work in the auditorium, and work on the plaza. Overall Life/Safety upgrades were brought to current standards. Overaa utilized a construction waste management program that diverted 50% to 75% of materials from disposal. The project was located in a congested downtown area with adjacent occupied buildings and additional ongoing construction activity. Major coordination with other contractors and multiple stakeholders was required.
