Construction of the new Windsor City Hall is set to get the green light Monday at a special meeting of City Council.

Council will be asked to approve awarding the contract to Oscar Construction Company Ltd. for a total of $28,543,290.  The tender came in $815,113 under budget and that money will be transferred to the project contingency budget.

  • Artistic colour lights on the north and south side of the building including all associated control wiring, communication devices, and control system. The new lighting provides an opportunity for a link between the public, the Civic Plaza and New City Hall especially on certain occasions which would also complement the colour theme.  The cost is $126,500.

Finally, the last part of the project they will be asked to approve is for new furniture.

Construction is set to start this summer and be complected by 2018.
