Design-Build Team, County Commission Sign Contract on $18M Justice Center

By on October 9, 2018

From Southeast Missourian:  Cape Girardeau County’s Justice Center project is moving forward after action at Thursday’s regular county commission meeting.

The county commission and design-build team Penzel Construction Co. and architectural firm Treanor HL signed a contract Thursday, after the team was awarded the project Sept. 14.

On Sept. 14, in a special session, the commissioners opened sealed bids from Penzel/Treanor and a second team, River City Construction of Benton, Illinois, and St. Louis architectural firm HOK.

The bids were scored according to set criteria, and Penzel/Treanor emerged as the winner.

Commissioner Charlie Herbst said at the meeting, “We do have a final contract and agreement with Penzel and Treanor HL to design and build courthouse facilities for Cape County for the lump sum amount of $18 million.”

According to earlier reporting by the Southeast Missourian, Penzel/Treanor’s plan for the Justice Center is for an 82,000-square-feet facility with an underground parking area and six courtrooms, at the corner of North Missouri and West Washington streets — adjacent to the existing Sheriff’s Department and county jail.
