Construction and support of Newberg Animal Shelter

Value Engineering Added to the Animal Shelter Design

To reduce the cost of the new animal shelter design, LCG Pence and NASF reviewed all the suggested design modifications and made decisions to what changes made sense.   We want to reduce the cost and not compromise on quality if possible.  We are building the core of the building and office space and any spaces outside the kennel area will be considered for future expansion and development.   LCG Pence has delivered a new GMP (guaranteed maximum price) list and the City of Newberg and Newberg Animal Shelter Friends will be meeting on Jun 21st to review and make additional design adjustments prior to attending the Newberg City Council Meeting on July 5th.   It is expected the council will make a decision at this meeting whether or not the city can afford to assist NASF with the cost of this new shelter.   It's important to deliver a good plan to the City Council because this opportunity does not come around very often.  We've been working with the City of Newberg for 4 or 5 years adjusting design and looking for the appropriate property selection.   Over these years the economy has influenced our building plans.   Thanks for your continued support and following our project.
