Agenda Item #45


Title
Tropical Elementary School - GMP for Building 001 Administration HVAC Upgrades

Discussion

Based on an evaluation of the Tropical Elementary School Building 001 HVAC system, Facilities Services and our design team have determined that current HVAC system is not adequate for proper fresh air and exhaust air requirements in the administration offices and the abutting restrooms.  Funds have been allocated in the 2014-15 Capital Budget to correct such conditions when identified.

Wharton-Smith, Inc. has submitted a Guaranteed Maximum Price (GMP) under their Continuing Contract for Construction Management Services in the amount of $67,488.00 for the Administration HVAC Upgrades to meet Florida Building Code and ASHRAE Standard 62.1.

The Total Project Budget for the design, GMP, administration, permitting, inspections, and contingency costs is $73,488.

Adequate funding has been identified and budgeted in the FY2014-15 Capital Funds for the cost of this project.

Board approval is required for a Purchase Order over $25,000.00.  In order to expedite this work, approval is requested as a consent agenda item without previous information.
