A number of creative, innovative and technologically advanced solutions
were implemented to modernize Augusta-Richmond County's infrastructure.
Over time, the government predicts many of those upgrades will deliver
cost savings far greater than the original expenditure. Heery's role as
lead adviser to the client on design and construction issues resulted
not only in significant short-term cost savings across projects, but
also in smart long-term recommendations.
The Reynolds Street parking garage was initially designed to provide
parking for the Augusta Convention Center, which is being built across
Reynolds Street. The 650-space, $12 million parking deck was paid for
with a 3-cent local car rental tax and special-purpose local-option
sales tax funds. Designed to respect the style of surrounding historic
buildings and to blend in with the downtown's existing architecture, the
parking garage is one of several building projects in the county either
completed or in the works.
Facing a backlog of voter-approved Special Purpose Local Option Sales
Tax (SPLOST) projects that needed to be guided to completion,
Augusta-Richmond County selected Heery to oversee renovations to some of
the consolidated city-county's most noteworthy structures, as well as
several new construction projects. Projects include the expansion of the
county jail, design and construction of a new main library, new judicial
center, exhibition center and Sheriff's Administrative Headquarters; and
renovations to the Municipal Building, and the Augusta Museum of
History. The program, which began in 2004, is slated for completion in
