Agenda Item #35

Audubon Elementary School - Change Order to Guaranteed Maximum Price for Additional HVAC Components


The District is under a Guaranteed Maximum Price (GMP) contract with H.J. High Construction for HVAC services at Audubon Elementary School.  Additional services are needed to complete the mechanical system renewal components as identified in the sales surtax Attachment F. Based on a design provided by GRAEF, under their continuing services contract, H.J. High Construction has submitted a change order to the GMP for these services in an amount not to exceed $1,285,695.


The designer, GRAEF, has submitted a scope of work and price to complete the design for the electrical system renewal and fire alarm system renewal components. This is being considered under a separate agenda item.


Once the design of the remaining items is complete, a GMP will be requested for the balance of the work.


The total budget approval required at this time is an amount not to exceed $2,385,396 of which $900,000 has been previously authorized. The net additional funding required is $1,485,396


The project is included in the priority sales tax project list. However, because sales tax revenues have not yet been received, the project will be advance-funded through the FY 2014-15 Capital Budget.


Board approval is required for a purchase order over $25,000. In order to expedite the work, approval is requested without prior information.


Approve the Audubon Elementary School revised project budget for HVAC renewal and additional design services in an amount not to exceed $2,385,396, requiring net additional funding in an amount not to exceed $1,485,396.


Approve the Guaranteed Maximum Price (GMP) change order submitted by H.J. High Construction under their continuing contract for construction management services in the amount of $1,285,695.
