The Redmond Senior Center recently underwent an exterior building evaluation in preparation for long term maintenance and repairs outlined in the City’s Capital Improvement Plan (CIP). RSC’s mechanical systems, roof, and building exterior are scheduled to be replaced in 2021. This evaluation conducted by a contracted structural engineering firm confirmed extensive structural damage to the exterior walls and substantial impact to both the lateral and gravity systems.
To allow for the ongoing investigation of the building interior and roof, the building has been vacated and will have limited entry for building inspectors and engineers to conduct further assessment.
We estimate further assessment to take an estimated eight weeks. This is an approximate timeline. When the report has been finalized decisions about the future of the building will be determined.
Programs, rentals, and events will be relocated to alternative locations with the goal of minimal impact to service. Please visit www.redmond.gov/RSC for activity schedules and locations.
