03-10-2015 Regular School Board Meeting
Agenda Item #32


Title
Ocean Breeze Elementary School - Guaranteed Maximum Price for HVAC Replacement

Discussion

The Ocean Breeze HVAC system has reached the end of its useful life. The central plant mechanical plant renewal and the air conditioning and air distribution system renewal were included on the sales tax project list. Ocean Breeze is the highest ranked priority for facility renewal.

 

Wharton Smith has submitted a Guaranteed Maximum Price (GMP) under their Continuing Contract for Construction Management Services in the amount of $937,553 for the HVAC work. The design was done under the District’s continuing services contract with TLC.

 

The designer, TLC, has submitted a scope of work and price to complete the design for the remaining Ocean Breeze facility renewal projects with the exception of the relocatable covered walkways. This is being considered under a separate agenda item.

 

Once the design of the remaining items is complete, Wharton Smith will submit a GMP for the balance of the work.

 

The total budget approval required at this time is an amount not to exceed $1,164,873.

 

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.

 

 



Recommendation

Approve the Ocean Breeze project budget for HVAC renewal and additional design services in an amount not to exceed $1,164,873.

 

Approve the Guaranteed Maximum Price (GMP) submitted by Wharton Smith under their Continuing Contract for Construction Management Services for the Ocean Breeze HVAC renewal in the amount of $937,553
