The old City Hall
As the City is moving forward with building a new City Hall, it’s time to take down the old one,
At tomorrow’s Council meeting, the Council will consider approving a contract change order in the amount of $534,472 with James G. Davis Construction Corporation for the abatement and demolition of the City Hall site.
Following a competitive RFP process, in February 2019 the City awarded construction management services for the City Hall project to James G. Davis Construction Corporation. Davis has been providing pre-construction services to the project team–preparing estimates, working on schedule development and identifying design solutions that work within the budget. This work has been in anticipation of the construction phase that will include a guaranteed maximum price (GMP) for the construction of the entire building and plaza.
Initially, the project team envisioned the abatement and demolition of the site to be included in the GMP. However, the GMP will not be ready until after the design is finalized in the spring.
In order to keep on schedule, the team is recommending the removal of this work from the construction phase. If Council approves, the abatement work can begin in December with demolition to follow.
Davis has solicited bids and has selected experienced vendors for the required work. The costs are in line with earlier estimates.
All City Hall departments/services have already moved to the temporary new location at 8400 Baltimore Avenue Suite 375, as of of October 14, 2019. City phone numbers and office hours remained the same. For more information about the City Hall project, including further details about the move, please visit www.collegeparkmd.gov/cityhall.
