Union County Board of Elections hosted a groundbreaking ceremony on May 27 to celebrate the beginning of construction of a building addition and renovations at the Board of Elections office at 316-B E. Windsor St. in Monroe.
The addition will expand the office by approximately 5,800 square feet; and interior renovations will include upgrading the existing mechanical system and remodeling approximately 9,200 square feet of existing office space and adjacent warehouse space.
“The BOE staff is excited to see construction begin on the addition and renovations to our current office space,” said Kristin Jacumin, Director of Elections. “This project will add additional, much-needed, storage space, allow us room to hold meetings and poll worker training, and create a highly efficient office layout with enhanced security features.”
The Union County Board of Commissioners approved funding for the building addition and renovations in the 2020 Capital Budget. The estimated cost of construction is $3,565,285. Construction is scheduled to begin on May 28 and is expected to be completed in May 2022.
“This expansion will enable the Board of Elections to better serve the needs of our growing county,” said Board of Elections Chairman, Harry B. Crow, Jr.
YCH Architects designed the project. Jenson Builders, LLC will lead construction of the building addition and renovations.
