Dublin City Council members approved a resolution authorizing City Manager Dana McDaniel to execute a construction agreement with Ruscilli Construction Co. for the third phase of city hall renovations and an addition at 5555 Perimeter Drive in the amount of $5.73 million.

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

Ruscilli has served as construction manager at risk for the project, according to a memo to council.

The first phase of renovations was $329,854, according to the memo. Ruscilli began working on those in December. The second phase of the project was $1.5 million. Renovation was completed in early April, and the city’s administration staff members began occupying the building in mid-April. The city manager’s office, communications and public-information, finance, human-resources and tax-administration departments are housed there.

The building at 5200 Emerald Parkway will continue to house city staff.

Construction of the new council-chambers addition of 11,675 square feet will begin mid-month and is anticipated to last for a year, with completion in June 2021, according to the memo.

Dublin public-works director Megan O'Callaghan said Ruscilli has completed work thus far on time and within budget.
