Temple (Bell County) — City Council is poised to adopt a resolution amending their professional services agreement with a local architect for the design improvements to the airport’s Corporate Hangar Phase IV project.

On Thursday night, the city is expected to amend their contract with Kasberg, Patrick & Associates, LP (KPA) from $126,700 to $121,300.

The city had previously hired KPA to design and prepare plans for the Draughon-Miller Central Texas Regional Airport  project at their Dec. 19 meeting.

Design specifications included in the amendment consist of the planning of roughly 2,000 linear feet of corporate hangar area roadway loop, including water/wastewater extensions and dry utility conduit layout along the proposed roadway route.

The design includes a coordination objective with the Texas Department of Transportation and preliminary layout of a potential driveway connection directly to the corporate hangar roadway from State Highway 53. 

Also included, is the design of the extension of the existing concrete taxiway by approximately 400 linear feet and a proposed concrete hangar apron for the selected site for the project. 

KPA has the preliminary construction cost for the project at $2.75 million and a four month completion timeline from the notice to proceed.
