The new City Hall and Council Chambers consolidates more than 10 City departments with the goal of improving services to citizens and introducing transparency into the workings of government. The design reference the mid-century modern traditions of the Richland community with an exposed steel canopy that creates an engaging public entry plaza. The facility provides office, meeting and storage space to accommodate 96 employees with a future growth capability to 110, and a new City Council chambers. The consolidation groups City services with the most public interaction in one location for streamlined access. The project included site improvements on several adjacent sites for parking for both public and city-owned vehicles as well as the coordination of the construction of those site improvements with adjacent land owners. The new City Hall is designed through a Progressive Design Build methodology where we worked hand-in-hand with the contractor to achieve the highest level of public building durability and quality finishes appropriate to a city hall within a limited budget. Opsis Architecture served as the design architect with Architects West as the architect of record.
