Agenda Item #25
Supplemental Kitchen Air Conditioning Units (Riviera Elementary, Coquina Elementary, McNair Magnet Middle and University Park Elementary) Construction Management Services Guaranteed Maximum Price (GMP)
The air conditioning units that serve the kitchens in Riviera Elementary School, Coquina Elementary School, McNair Magnet Middle School and University Park Elementary School are undersized. Temperatures have been consistently between 85 degrees F. and 90 degrees F. during the spring and fall.
Riviera Elementary has no funding allocated for air conditioning units in the sales surtax funded detailed report (Attachment F).
The kitchen unit at Coquina Elementary failed and was replaced in fall 2015 as an out of sequence sales surtax project reported to the Independent Citizens Oversight Committee (ICOC). However, the surtax program replaces "like for like" and the same size unit was installed, which has been determined to be undersized.
University Park Elementary is scheduled in year 4 of the sales surtax program and McNair Magnet Middle is scheduled for year 5. The existing equipment at both schools is functional, but undersized.
DDC Engineering, Inc. has provided a design for a properly sized air conditioning unit at Riviera Elementary and for supplemental air conditioning units at Coquina Elementary, McNair Magnet Middle and University Park Elementary under their continuing contract for MEP and fire protection services (RFQ 14-Q-008-KR).
