By AZBEX Staff for Arizona Builder’s Exchange
Contractor bids for the planned new 66.3KSF Superior Courthouse in Kingman are being solicited by Mohave County.
According to an article in Mohave Valley Daily News, construction costs are projected between $18M-$19.7M. Build time is estimated at roughly two years.
The report cited Superior Court Administrator Kip Anderson as saying bids are expected to be awarded by December and potentially going to supervisors for approval in January.
The county contracted with Dick & Fritsche Design Group to plan the new facility. The design calls for a four-story structure to be built next to the existing courthouse, and the two will be connected by a bridge or enclosed corridor, the article said.
The first floor will consist of public offices. Floors two and three will house the courtrooms, and the fourth will provide judges’ chambers and staff workspace.
Information in the AZBEX Database shows on Oct. 1, the Mohave County Board of Supervisors approved a motion to sign an intergovernmental agreement with the City of Kingman to allow the county to use two portions of the Pine Street right of way for public parking to satisfy the city’s off-street parking requirements.
Bids are due at the county procurement office no later than 2 p.m., Dec. 6. There will be a pre-bid conference at 10 a.m. Monday, Oct. 29.
