Last month, Barrow Patch reported a request for proposals was issued bycity of Winder as the municipality sought qualified architects and engineers for the renovation design of an existing 23,500-square-foot building in the downtown area. Located at 25 E. Midland Ave., the building once served as a People’s Bank Operations Center.
Following the end of the RFP submission period June 15, the city recently announced that the contract has been awarded to Winder-based Bramlett Associates Architecture. With their base-of-operations situated at 122 N. Broad St. — right around the corner from the building at the heart of the project, the city of Winder didn’t have to look far to find the ideal candidate. In a website post on July 18, the city thanks all of the companies who bid on the project.
With 25 years and the orchestration of half a billion dollars worth of design and construction projects to their credit, Bramlett Associates Architecture is well-suited for the renovation design of the property at 25 E. Midland Ave. Other local projects in Bramlett Associates’ extensive portfolio include the cultural preservation of the Sharpton Opera House (National Register), design and construction of Piedmont Regional Library System’s headquarters and development of a personal care facility prototype being used by Magnolia Estates in Watkinsville and Winder.
