Dublin City Council is expected to vote Nov. 18 on a resolution to enter into a contract and execute a guaranteed maximum price (GMP) with Ruscilli Construction Co., which is serving as construction manager at risk for the renovation and construction of 5555 Perimeter Drive, identified as the future home of Dublin City Hall.

Dublin purchased the property, which previously was occupied by Delta Energy, in March 2018 for $4 million.

City Hall workers, including those in the city manager’s office, department of finance, legislative services and City Council, will move there.

The city is planning to add about 9,000 square feet to the building to house new council chambers and public meeting and office spaces. The Perimeter Drive structure has approximately 20,000 square feet. Dublin City Hall, at 5200 Emerald Parkway, has approximately 22,800 square feet of floor space. The annex adjacent to City Hall has approximately 3,000 square feet.

The city is moving forward on a plan dating to 1997 that envisioned the design of a municipal complex around Coffman Park, said Donna Goss, development director.

According to a Nov. 12 memo to council members, the agreement with Ruscilli includes a $329,854 GMP for the first phase of the project. Staff plans to present an amendment to the GMP for the balance of the renovation next month and a third GMP amendment for the majority of the council chambers addition in May.

Construction of the council chambers addition is expected to be finished in spring or summer 2021, according to the memo. Work on the first phase of the renovation portion of the overall project is expected to begin in December.

Council members are also expected to vote on:

• A collective-bargaining agreement with the United Steelworkers of America for a bargaining unit comprising 71 employees in the public-works and parks-and-recreation departments. The agreement includes a 2% wage increase effective Jan. 1, and subsequent increases for 2021 and 2022 are to be determined.

• The adoption of the city’s 2020 annual operating budget.
