The architect team will be presenting three options to the committee;

  • 13,000 sq ft at a projected total cost of $10m
  • 15,000 sq ft at a projected total cost of $11.5m
  • 18,000 sq ft at a total cost of $13m.  

One option will be chosen by the committee and they are interested in your input. This selection is important as the architects will design both the New & Renovation schemes based on the selected option at its projected cost. For each option the architects will present rooms of varying sizes that will host a wide variety of activities. The key to a successful design will be flexible, multi-use space. Your opinions and suggestions will help the Committee with its decisions. This is all about building a community center for the entire Dover Community.
