Gilroy City Council Approves Architectural Services Contract for the Gilroy Ice Center

Tuesday, August 22, 2023 (Gilroy, CA): On Monday, August 21, 2023, the Gilroy City Council approved a contract with Perkins & Will to prepare the basis of design documents for the Gilroy Ice Center, a joint project with the City of Gilroy and Sharks Sports & Entertainment LLC (SSE). 

The Ice Center will be located at Gilroy’s Sports Park. It is proposed to be a 100,000-square-foot building with two indoor ice rinks, a restaurant, a snack bar, a pro shop, and other ancillary uses.

The contract, in the amount of $275,000, is the first step in designing and constructing the Gilroy Ice Center. The basis of design documents will provide a baseline of architectural guidance for the future center to allow the City and SSE to ensure that all essential facility components are included in the final construction bidding documents. These documents have a project definition, technical requirements, plans, constraints, reference materials, and contractual requirements.

When asked about the contract, Mayor Marie Blankley stated, “This is an exciting step, and we are very eager to move forward with the Gilroy Ice Center. Through our partnership with the Sharks and with gratitude to our Gilroy-based community partners through whom discussions began years ago, this project has become a reality and will greatly benefit our economy, community, and families.” 

In addition to the contract with Perkins & Will, the Gilroy City Council also approved a resolution to reimburse project-related expenditures through bond issuance. The issuance of project bonds, which will not occur until the basis of design documents is finalized, is anticipated to occur in early 2024.   The City and SSE will jointly fund preparatory work such as the basis of design documents and design-build bidding documents.
