Waller & Sadler designed Currituck County facility
Following a presentation by Dare County Purchasing Agent Dustin Peele and architect Dan Costello on Jan. 22, the Dare County Commissioners voted to approve a contract with Waller, Todd & Sadler Architects to design the county's new $2 million animal shelter.
The board approved a maximum fee of $265,040, covering the design fee and additional services, including geotechnical engineering and topographic surveys, with the option of deciding to contract those services out or perform them with county staff and pay a flat design fee of $230,900.
The board had voted last November to replace the original architectural firm of Guernsey Tingle with Waller, Todd & Sadler, the firm that designed the new $2.4 million Currituck County animal shelter, which opened in January 2016 and has been widely praised as a state-of-the art facility.
The tentative timeline calls for completion of the new animal shelter by May 2020.
