SDS Architects was commissioned by the Village of Cottage Grove for a Police, Public Works, and Parks and Recreations department facility replacement project. The Village was in the process of purchasing an existing warehouse and office building located in their industrial park when SDS was selected for the architectural portion of the project.
SDS began working with the Village in August to help evaluate the existing facility and to rapidly develop the two-phased, 30,000 square foot remodeling project. The project is being bid at the end of October and construction will begin immediately following the closing of the property in November of 2014.
Phasing of the construction will allow the Police Department to move into a functional facility by the end of 2014, with substaintial completion of the Police Department slated for mid-February 2015. The remainder of the remodeling will happen simultaneously, and occupants will move into the completed facility in June of 2015.
