Office and Personnel Relocation
Select VMS personnel from the Security Services, Maintenance and Construction and Landscaping Services departments will relocate this weekend from maintenance center Building E and parts of Building D to a temporary, GRF-approved location at Town Centre building 24361 El Toro Road, adjacent to the Community Center.
Staff relocation is due to the condition of Building E, first constructed as a metal warehouse facility and then reconstructed in 1976 as a single-story wood-framed structure. Over the past eight years, it has become unsustainable as an office building.
A 2021/2022 draft plan kept employees in their current workspace while a new building underwent construction in another area of the maintenance yard parking area. Following construction, employees would move into the new building. Building E would then be demolished, and the area converted to parking space.
The plan was placed on hold earlier this year while a space study is conducted; in the meantime, employees must move to another office space.
The current proposed estimate to complete the new building project is two years and would include the following phases:
- Perform a space analysis, which is currently in progress.
- Present and analyze findings.
- Draw up a new project and send it out for bid.
- Complete construction and/or building out process.
All these phases will be presented and discussed at GRF Maintenance and Construction and Finance committee meetings and at GRF board meetings. Interested residents can watch for these upcoming meetings in the Calendars section of the Village website, where agendas are posted a few days before the meetings.
