Five New Solano County Building Projects Coming Soon

Work on a Solano County building project in Vallejo could begin as early as next month, the assistant county administrator said Tuesday.
"We have a schedule and it's rather ambitious. But we hope to (begin) prequalification of contractors by the end of August," said Veronica Ferguson.
There are five projects in the county, including a new building on the Vallejo Tuolumne Street "campus."
"We're remodeling the existing 355 (Tuolumne St.) and we're also remodeling a portion of the upstairs of the Justice Center (across the street at 321 Tuolumne St.) - about 9,000 square feet," Ferguson said.
County health officer Ron Chapman said the new building will be built on the parking lot next to the present building. The third floor will hold a new clinic and it will be almost triple the square footage, Chapman said.
"There is health-related clinic space and social service programs, primarily employment and eligibility. But our older adult program will also go in there," Ferguson said.
The district attorney's and public defender's offices will be in the remodeled building and there will be "some additional health and social service programs," Ferguson said.
The Probation Department will go into the Justice Center. Presently, probation services are offered at both the Justice Center and 355 Tuolumne St.
"We anticipate that the new building in Vallejo will have substantial completion and move-in in September '09," she said.
In Fairfield, at the campus on Beck Avenue and Courage Drive, a new building for a lab and a clinic will be built and a portion of 2101 Courage Drive will be remodeled, she said.
"The actual schedule shows us going in and making the last move-in at 2101 Courage in October 2009," she said.
The intent is to use existing staff to deliver the services.
"(The improvements) will allow us to centralize services so it will facilitate access to those services," Ferguson said. "Right now those services are in different locations in Vallejo. With the modification, people will be able to go to the one site."
The county will, however, continue to have some neighborhood- based services, she said.
