The Huntington Town Board revoked the contract it had with Bohemia-based DCAK-MSA Architectural and Engineering PC — doing business as Savik and Murray — which had been hired to design the James D. Conte Community Center in Huntington Station. Town officials said the firm was charging excess fees and didn’t advance the project beyond the conceptual phase. Patchogue-based BBS Architects, Landscape Architects and Engineers PC will take over the project, Newsday reported. In 2016, the town approved payment of $603,000 for Savik and Murray for the project and about half of that has already been paid out. Savik and Murray had apparently tacked fees onto that amount, forcing the final bill for the whole project up from the budgeted $10 million to a total of $15 million. The community center will feature a full-size basketball court and meeting rooms.  [Newsday]
