The City of San Dimas initially engaged Griffin Structures’ program management services during the design phase for this comprehensive renovation and expansion of the City’s Civic Center, originally built in 1969. Griffin provided cost estimates, coordinated the design, and conducted value engineering and related services. The early involvement enabled the project to be completed within an aggressive one-year construction schedule in which Griffin delivered the full project under a Guaranteed Maximum Price model.
The project encompassed three elements:
- City Hall – 20,000‐square‐foot renovation and 11,000 square foot expansion which included new administrative offices and public service counters; upgraded City Council Chambers, lobby, public and staff meeting rooms
- Community Center – 8,000 square foot renovation and 4,000 square foot expansion, including kitchen and restroom upgrades, new mechanical and electrical systems, improved ADA access; and new community and multi‐purpose rooms, lobby and offices
- Civic Center Plaza – Redesigned and expanded Plaza to improve accessibility and create a community gathering place.
