KEY WEST – Keys Energy Services (KEYS) will host a yard sale at its soon-to-be renovated Service Building on Saturday, January 10th, and Monday, January 12th, from 8:00 – 11:00A – no early birds. The Service Building is located at 1001 James Street, Key West.

The yard sale will consist of office furniture, chairs, and fixtures that utility employees are not taking to their temporary office space during renovations. Proceeds from the sale will be deposited back into KEYS’ General Fund. Only cash will be accepted at the Yard Sale

The Utility Board approved a Guaranteed Maximum Price (GMP) of $6.2-million for Biltmore Construction Company (BCC) to act as a Construction Manager at Risk (CMR) for the renovation of KEYS’ Service Building during their regular meeting on Wednesday, November 19th

The renovations will include, but are not limited to: upgrading the Service Building to withstand a Category 5 hurricane; installing a new energy management system; remodeling the interior; providing backup generation; providing backup air conditioning for the 24-hour staffed Dispatch Center and Information Technology server room; flood proofing the 1st floor; new roofing; new exterior doors and windows; new electrical, fire alarm & protection systems; landscaping; and site work.

The renovation will return the mid-century modern aesthetic to the exterior of KEYS’ Service Building and reference the 1950s style when the building was originally constructed. The project was designed by Bender & Associates and will blend the renovated historic facade of the building with a reconfigured interior that will better serve the needs of a 21st century utility.
