The Columbia Shuswap Regional District has entered into an agreement with the MMH Group to construct a new CSRD administration building on Harbourfront Drive in Salmon Arm. The agreement was signed following an extensive, five-year review process that included the evaluation of office space needs, the consideration of potential site and building concepts, and the assessment of formal proposals that were submitted in response to a widely-advertised Request for Proposals. The new building will be constructed as a "design-build" project. Design-build is an approach that consolidates responsibility for building design and construction with a single developer under a single contract. The method is intended both to protect the CSRD from financial risk, and to ensure on-time delivery.
