Greensburg, IN — The City of Greensburg awarded the City Hall renovation contract on Monday to Construction Planning Management (CPM) during the City Council meeting. Project manager Eric Ratts, with DLZ presented 8 bids to the City. The CPM bid came in at 3.855 million dollars. This was less than the original estimate for the renovation project. The bid acceptance included additional alternatives to add a fire sprinkler system, extend the roof replacement warranty, refinish the oak doors throughout the building to match the new upgrades, and additional stucco refinishing throughout the building. The project is also estimated to be complete in 175 days, which is well under the original determination of 365 days.
The Council voted 4-1 in favor of the renovation project. Councilman Kevin Fleetwood expressed concern for the overall cost of the project in the current economic climate and made suggestions towards a less costly partial renovation or the items that needed attention sooner, such as updating the HVAC system.
