In order to ensure that Delaware County’s public assets and infrastructure will continue to serve residents, the Department of Public Works selected a team of consultants, led by Delaware Engineering, to coordinate an ambitious project to renovate and/or replace several facilities at multiple locations throughout the county.
The entire scope of work includes the construction of three (3) new county facilities, upgrades to two (2) existing buildings, and demolition of the existing DPW headquarters in Delhi.
Under an accelerated schedule, preliminary design work began in June of 2020 and was completed within three months. By the end of 2020, final designs were approved for Phase I of the project, and bids were awarded in April of 2021.
Construction on Phase I is currently underway and includes the following new facilities:
Highway Patrol Building (Bloomville)
Heavy Mechanic Facility (Walton)
DPW Administration Building (Delhi)
Phase II will involve upgrades to two remaining facilities in Delhi and the demolition of the existing DPW headquarters, originally constructed as a factory in the 1800s.
Total Project Cost (Phase I): $27M
