Shook Construction may move to new HQ

The Shook Construction headquarters building on Northcutt Place is on the market, and the company may be looking at a move to Moraine, according to city documents.

Moraine City Council on Thursday will consider entering into a development agreement with Shook Construction for relocation and improvement of a corporate building at 2000 W. Dorothy Lane.

The agreement, as outlined in a council meeting agenda, would have the city “make annual rebate payments to Shook, Inc., reporting an aggregate payroll for a five-year period of at least ... $4,000,000.00 for each of the five years.”

A Shook spokeswoman could not offer details Wednesday, but she said the company may have more to say on the matter in about two weeks.

“Nothing has been finalized,” said spokeswoman Linda Dininger. “We’re not under contract yet.”

The website for Mark Fornes Realty lists the three-story, 26,000-square-foot Dayton office building for $699,000.

The company has had a role in an array of major Dayton-area construction projects over the decades, working either as general contractor or construction manager for Wright State University’s Erwin J. Nutter Center, Atrium Medical Center in Middletown, Miami Valley Hospital South Bed Tower Addition, GE Aviation’s EPISCenter on the University of Dayton campus and many other projects.
