FRANKFORT, Ky., Sept. 25, 2018 — Kentucky Governor Matt Bevin and dozens of state and local dignitaries signed the final beam today before it was lifted into place on the EOP-designed state office building developed in a public-private partnership by CRM Companies. The project, which only began in March when the Capital Plaza Tower was imploded and includes a 1,206-space parking structure adjacent to the 385,500-square-foot building for 1,500, is on course to be delivered months ahead of schedule.
With the building’s early completion, government officials say the speedy delivery could mean substantial savings.
“It means we can move people out of leased property quicker, and in doing so we can save the money we’re paying on those leases and consolidate and get everyone under one roof,” said Mike Burnside of the Kentucky Department of Facilities and Support Services.
Or as Andrew Casebier (pictured above with EOP Principal Kevin Gough) the commonwealth’s director of the Division of Engineering and Contract Administration, stated, “Thanks guys for giving us a great building… And WAY ahead of schedule.”
