The renovation of Reston Association’s Central Services Facility will begin this month, according to a video posted to RA’s video channel this week.
Plans to renovate 35-year-old building on 12250 Sunset Hills Road have been suggested for nearly three years. The facility is responsible for maintenance and care of Reston’s facilities, including pavilions, community buildings, garden plots and pathways. will begin this month.
Mike McNamara, RA’s deputy director of maintenance said construction is expected to last through March of next year. Upgrades are necessary as the facility must manage workforce increases, changes in the scope of work and more staff.
McNamara also said renovations will not impact the facility’s current operations.
“There will be contractors on site but services to the members will definitely not be impacted. Every job and every service that we provide will continue throughout the renovation,” he said.
The project was put on hold in June 2016 when RA’s Board of Directors put the project on pause. In December, the board approved releasing funds to allow staff to estimate the cost of the project. In February this year, the board released an additional $200,000 to begin the architecture and engineering phase of the project.
The project will include the following upgrades:
- bathroom in warehouse building for environmental staff
- additional exit and ADA accessibility for warehouse office area
- replace all windows in main building
- add to bathroom capacity in main building to meet volume needs
- address leaking roof
- improve reception area for staff and RA members
- provide HVAC system for shop area
