Surrey is preparing to spend $5 million on furniture for the new city hall being built in the City Centre.

A staff report to council Monday recommends awarding a contract to Vancouver-based Heritage Office Furniture Ltd. for $4.7 million, excluding HST, which will bring it to more than $5 million.

The furniture will include: office furniture, systems furniture and components, free-standing furniture, seating, desks and tables, filing systems such as cabinets and lockers, support services, and accessories such as lighting and signage.

Three companies bid on the contract, including Brooks Corning/Haworth, Knoll/The Office Resource and Heritage.

The bids and products were reviews by staff moving to the new city hall, 450 of whom saw presentations by all three companies.

The furniture will be payed for out of the entire budget for the new city hall.

Surrey is borrowing $97 million from the Municipal Finance Authority to pay for the building, but will pay $37 million of that back through the lease of its existing building at 142 Street and Highway 10.

The new 180,000-sq.-ft. city hall will be built on the south side of 104 Avenue, east of University Boulevard.

It will be complete by September 2013.
