Explanation

 

1.0 BACKGROUND:  This legislation authorizes the Director of Public Utilities to enter into a construction contract with 2K General Company for the Dana G. Rinehart Public Utilities Complex Office Renovations Project; in an amount up to $1,973,520.00; for Division of Water Capital Improvements Project No. 690026-100019, Contract No. 2281.

 

Funds in the amount of $2,000.00 will also be encumbered with the Department of Public Service for Prevailing Wage services.

 

With the construction of the new Coleman Office Complex several work groups relocated from the Rinehart Complex to that facility opening up space within the Dana G. Rinehart Utilities Complex for staff relocation.  This project is being performed based on results of a space needs study to determine best use of the space for efficient workflow and staff organization. 

 

This project consists of interior office renovation at 910 Dublin Road, 906 (910B) Dublin Road and 906B (918) Dublin Road, including mechanical, electrical, minor plumbing, technology, finishes and furniture work; window replacement, exterior building renovation and installation of a concrete sidewalk at 906B (918) Dublin Road, and other such work as may be necessary to complete the contract, in accordance with the drawings, technical specifications, and City of Columbus Construction and Material Specifications as set forth in this Invitation For Bid (IFB).

 

Planning Area:  “68 - Dublin Road Corridor”

 

2.0 ECONOMIC IMPACT/ADVANTAGES; COMMUNITY OUTREACH; PROJECT DEVELOPMENT; ENVIRONMENTAL FACTORS/ADVANTAGES OF PROJECT:

The Dana G. Rinehart Public Utilities Complex Office Renovations project was designed following the results of the Utilities Complex Space Needs Study.  This allowed for more efficient workflow and staff placement to better utilize the existing building infrastructure.  The project will include installation of energy efficient LED lighting. 

 

This project is also being performed in conjunction with the Rinehart Public Utilities Complex Exterior Site Improvements project CIP 690026-100010.  Completion of this project will allow for demolition of an older storage building to make room for construction of a new truck washout facility and materials storage building that will bring these operations into compliance with Stormwater regulations.  All work will be performed to buildings housing Division of Water staff.  Since this facility is not utilized by the public no community meetings were held regarding this project.
