The Cherokee County Board of Commissioners recently approved an agreement for pre-construction services to expand the parking deck at the Frank C. Mills Justice Center that would be open to public, according to a press release.

The planned parking deck is expected to bring 550 parking spaces. The Board approved, 5-0, the agreement with Gilbane Building Company for $28,140 for the pre-construction services (also known as part 1 of the process).

During the pre-construction period, the architect and the general contractor work together to complete drawings and other pre-construction tasks. That part is expected to be completed in November. Staff will bring back a construction services agreement for the Board to consider later this year.
