Antrim contracted with Baybutt Construction Managers for two phases of the
Antrim Police Station project. Baybutt partnered with Northeast
Collaborative Architects for Phase 1 which was for the Pre-bond portion of
the project which included architectural concepts, site plan, floor plan,
elevations, cost estimates and presentations to the public. This Phase of
the Police Station project has been completed with the exception of one
public informational meeting and the bond hearing. The documents and work
that was performed by Baybutt and Northeast Collaborative Architects met all
our expectations and was professionally performed and presented.
Upon receiving multiple reports of financial issues concerning other
projects being performed by Baybutt and after speaking with the president of
Baybutt, the Town of Antrim has decided to exercise the termination clause
of the contract for the second phase of the project
In order to keep the Police Station moving forward, we are working with the
other company that was recommended from the request for proposal process.
BreadLoaf Corporation, is reviewing the project and working with the Town to
keep the project on schedule. The next public informational meeting is at
7:00 PM, Wednesday, January 23, 2013 in the Town Hall.
