Agenda Item #34


Title
Meadowlane Primary - Structured Cabling - Design Build Services - SALES SURTAX

Discussion

The Sales Surtax Funded Detail Report (Attachment F) for educational technology at Meadowlane Primary includes structured cabling, classroom technology infrastructure and electrical distribution system renewal.

Based on a Design Criteria Package (DCP) prepared by Project Management staff, Heard Construction, Inc. utilizing Premier Engineering Group, LLC as the designer, has submitted a proposal for preconstruction services in an amount not to exceed $55,485 under their continuing contract for design build services.

Services include design of a new structured cabling system, a new HVAC system for the communications/equipment room and electrical upgrades as well as the development of the Guaranteed Maximum Price (GMP). The electrical distribution system renewal, under the facility renewal group, will be done with this project to support the educational technology program. The facility renewal at Meadowlane Primary is not scheduled until year 5 of the program, so this aspect only is out of sequence and will be reported to the Independent Citizens Oversight Committee at their February 17, 2016 meeting.

Staff administrative support budget in the amount of $5,000 is also requested.

Costs are prorated between educational technology and facility renewal based on the funding in Attachment F for each group.

Board approval is required for purchase orders over $50,000. In order to expedite the work, approval is requested as a consent item without prior information.
