“We are less than 60 days away from actually opening.”
Soon the Buda Police Department will have a new place to call home. The new Public Safety Building is scheduled to open in late October.
“The exterior finishes are finalizing on the exterior stucco. The standing seam metal roof, metal trim, exterior doors and hardware will be going in within the next week,” Project Manager Ray Creswell said.
From the floors to the walls, the amount of progress on the building is evident.
“About 95 percent of the walls have the first layer of paint and the hard ceilings are being painted.”
As for the rest of the Municipal Building, work is moving along nicely.”
“Right now on the exterior we’re trying to finish up all the stone work. The standing seam roof won’t go up until after all masonry work is complete on the building.”
“The windows, the framing and glazing has been put in place on 95 percent of the windows. The main store front entry on the Main Street side of the building will be going in late this week.”
There is still a lot of work to be done on the pedestrian bridge and the parking lot will be finished right before the City Hall and Library building opens.
In the meantime, the countdown is on for the doors to open at the Public Safety Building.
“It really is exciting working with the police department and Chief Bo Kidd in regards to the final finishes and the security on the building itself. I’m really excited to see this part of the complex come together,” said Creswell.
