Why build a new Camano Administrative Building?

When the existing Camano Annex was built in the 1970's and piece-mealed years later, Camano Island had much less population than it has today. This was before modern building code standards for earthquakes and ADA were in place. The existing Annex has seen nearly 50 years of public use.  Meanwhile, our Island County Sheriff Deputies have been crammed into a less than adequate 1,000 square foot temporary, modular Camano Precinct building.   The current Multi-Purpose Center is also beyond it's useful life as community meeting space.   There are functional difficulties within all three existing buildings that must be resolved.   A new Camano Administrative Building will combine the Administrative offices, the Sheriff's Offices and Public spaces in one multi-use flexible space and also allow  Island County to improve the services provided to our customers.

Where will the new Camano Administrative Building be located?

On the site of the "Old Camano Road Shop".   In other words, just outside the front door of the existing Camano Annex.  The Old Camano Road Shop demolition occurred in July, 2018.

When will construction begin and how long until the project is complete?
Construction is expected to begin late spring of 2019. Building completion is expected approximately one year later in 2020.  A brief project schedule found here: schedule.png
How much will the project cost?  

In 2017, the Island County Board of Commissioners approved funding for the architectural design of the new Camano Administration Building.  The total project cost is $5 million. 

Who is designing the new Camano Administrative Building?

An architectural team from SHKS Architects is working diligently on the design to meet our deadlines.  SHKS Architects connects people with place, community with culture, and architecture with the environment.  Collaborating with clients on programming and design, SHKS encourages clients and project team members to optimize public and community and explore the interactions of public and building.  SHKS Architects, located in Seattle, is a team of over twenty professionals – architects and designers – collaborating on projects across Washington State. The project team for the Island County Camano Administration Building includes principals Jonathan Hartung and Kevin Kane, associate Matt Inpanbutr, and Sean Kelly.  To learn more about SHKS Architects, visit their website: SHKS Architects
