In January of 2012, the Department of Administration initiated predesign efforts for the repair, restoration, and preservation of the Residence, and retained the architecture firm, Miller Dunwiddie, to lead the effort. The predesign examined all interior and exterior components of the Residence and provides a template for future design and construction efforts. The predesign report also aids in ensuring the most critical work is prioritized with the available funding.
The work, as identified, has been slated to be completed in three phases, with the initial work now underway in 2013:
Admin Plant Management, as custodial owner of the building, has budgeted $2.5M of Asset Preservation funds for design and construction. This funding supports Phase I of the work identified in the predesign report. Private funds are being explored to support Phases II and III. Phase I began in June of 2013 and is scheduled to be completed in the summer of 2014. Due to the work being completed, tours of the Residence are not being held at this time. Please check back on our website in April 2014 for updated information on when tours will resume.
