With a backlog of deferred maintenance the Chisago County Government Center needed major renovations to continue to serve the community. Working under a Capital Improvement Project (CIP) master agreement TKDA designed remediation projects for the courthouse and county office building.
TKDA prioritized the building work and developed a strategic and realistic project schedule. Projects included a new chiller, roof replacement, envelope evaluation and upgrades, central boilers, and exterior stairs, parking lot improvements and ramps. The new chiller was matched with an energy rebate program through the County’s electrical provider. Since the existing roof had a lack of insulation and low R-value, its replacement was paired with the chiller project to save more energy and reduce up-front costs by scaling back the size required for the chiller.
