CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. -- A nondescript warehouse in the Cumberland Valley Business Park will be getting a $1.3 million makeover later this year to become the new headquarters of the Franklin County Department of Emergency Services.
On Thursday the Board of County Commissioners awarded contracts to the lowest bidders. The money will be used to upgrade about 14,000 square feet of the 18,000-square-foot Building 426, which the county has leased from the Letterkenny Industrial Development Authority since 2004.
Once the notice to proceed is given to the contractors, the job is supposed to be completed within 240 days, County Chief Administrator John Hart said.
General construction will be performed by GRC General Contractor of Zullinger, Pa., for $498,500; heating and air-conditioning by Stouffer Mechanical of Chambersburg for $240,589; electrical by Midstate Mechanical of Mechanicsburg, Pa., for $419,593; and plumbing and fire suppression by Kings Fire Protection for $131,238.
