Nassau County Family & Matrimonial Court

Nassau, NY

The Nassau County Family & Matrimonial Court project involved Ellana completing three estimating tasks: A review of a previously submitted estimate for the contract works; a 40% document estimate; and a 60% document estimate.

The project consists of a 243,000sf interior fit up of an existing building, into courtrooms and associated support areas. Specifically, there are 15 courtrooms, and 33 hearing rooms. Support areas include holding cells, meeting rooms, offices, kitchens, and county administration areas.

The building shell exists; the project shell was completed under a separate contract, but has been on hold for 5 years. Ellana was tasked with reviewing the last estimate from this time, updating to current costs, and commenting on the estimates’ validity.

Full 40% & 60% estimating efforts followed.
