City of Alachua Operations Center
O’Steen Bros. Chosen as Site Work Contractor for New City of Alachua Operations Center
We are pleased to work on the future site of the City of Alachua Public Services Operations Center. The new facility will house the City’s five public services divisions, water, electric, meter reading, facilities and public works, under one roof. Currently they are housed separately and with frequent need to interact and communicate with each other directly, this new development will lead to more efficient operations. The center is schedule to be complete in the Summer of 2017.
The building is estimated to cost $4,026,911, and is being built by Concept Construction, a Gainesville area builder and was designed by Walker Architects, another area business.
A Groundbreaking Ceremony took place on Thursday, Aug. 25, at the facility location, 13144 N.W. 104th Terrace, just off of U.S. Highway 441, in Alachua.
