Explanation
BACKGROUND: This legislation authorizes the Finance and Management Director to enter into a contract on behalf of the Office of Construction Management with R.W. Setterlin Building Company for the Neighborhood Building Renovation located at 1410 Cleveland Avenue.

This project is for the renovation of a 21,000 square foot facility formerly known as the Point of Pride Center. This facility houses the Department of Neighborhood’s 311 Call Center and Administrative Staff. This renovation will include but is not limited to selective demolition, architectural, electrical, plumbing, mechanical, new generator, furnishing, interior finishes, signage and graphics and some site work. It will also include layout of the second floor and half of the first floor to accommodate the new tenants.

R.W. Setterlin Building Company Columbus $3,452,000.00 EBOCC
Elford Contractions Columbus $3,608,000.00 EBOCC

Per this code section, the Department of Finance and Management can deem a bid non-responsible for several factors. In this instance, (2)(b) applies, which states "Whether the bidder has a successful record of complying with and meeting completion deadlines as well as controlling costs on similar construction projects". Gutknecht Construction was determined to be non-responsible by the Department of Finance under this section. R.W. Setterlin Building Company is within 2.07% of the lowest bid and is both responsive and responsible and therefore the Department of Finance and Management recommends that the contract be awarded to R.W. Setterlin Building Company.
