In 2007, Miller Hull led a predesign effort with the City of Edgewood steering committee to establish the building and site program for a new City Hall, Pierce County Police Precinct facility and Civic Center Park. In conjunction with Bruce Dees and Associates (landscape/civil) our team worked with the City to test several Civic Center Master Plan options and presented them to City Council and the public. Future development opportunities were carefully considered for the 9 acre site to ensure the best and highest use of the city property. We also worked with City staff to assess the current operations of the existing City offices and to improve efficiency and space allotment in the new facility. Dual functions were planned for the Community Meeting Hall/Council Chambers and conference spaces to allow for those spaces to be leased out for private events and conferences when they would not otherwise be used for City functions, providing a substantial income stream for the City. Our team helped the City project their growth over the next 20 years and to incorporate the projected growth into the planning of the new facility. This study resulted in a decision to build leaseable office space that could be converted into City offices in the future.
