Contractors working on the rehabilitation of the historic Effingham Courthouse are working on a punch list of touch up items as they have hit the mark for substantial completion.
County project manager Adam Kobek said Hussey, Gay, Bell and DeYoung and Greenline Architecture representatives have completed their walk-throughs on the courthouse. The project will be completed by Nov. 4, he said. The team of J.T. Turner Construction, Hussey, Gay, Bell and DeYoung and Greenline won the bid for the design-build renovation of the 101-year-old courthouse.
The original courthouse, built in 1909 and placed on the National Register of Historic Places, was completed at a cost of $20,000.
Estimated cost for the renovation of the courthouse is $3.2 million, with proceeds coming from the special local option sales tax. Work began approximately 14 months ago.
