Department of Public Works Facility Feasibility Study, Design & Construction
AES Northeast was engaged by the Village of Malone to complete an engineering report to evaluate the feasibility of constructing a new DPW facility. After thorough reviews of multiple sites and various building configurations, the Village selected a new site for the DPW Facility. The Village was successful in securing a USDA Rural Development Loan which was the primary funding source of the project and administered by the USDA Rural Development Community Facilities Division . The project required close coordination and collaboration between the Village and the Development Authority of the North Country (DANC), who served as the Project/Funding Manager.
In accordance with Rural Development Instructions for Community Facilities, AES prepared a Preliminary Architectural Feasibility Report and Environmental Review of the proposed project. Following acceptance of the report, AES completed the design for a new Department of Public Works facility. The project included an approximately 7,900 gross sq. ft., 1 story pre-manufactured metal building that includes 5 work bays, office, bathroom, mezzanine; energy efficient building systems; site development (grading, fuel canopy/dispensing station, stormwater management, utilities, and parking).
The design phase was completed just prior to the Covid-19 pandemic and construction continued well into the pandemic. In spite of all the supply chain challenges and costs, the project came in within the Village’s loan amount.
