Rockledge High School Retention Basin Repair - General Contractor Services


During routine inspections in mid-October 2014 what appeared as a large sink hole was discovered in the dry retention basin at Rockledge High School between the softball field and the tennis courts. The District retained Morgan & Associates under their continuing services contract to investigate the problem and design remedial measures.  


Field surveys and soil borings indicated large coquina boulders and other unsuitable material directly adjacent to a drainage structure. Over time, soil erosion and settlement occurred resulting in the collapse of the drainage structure and a large open hole.  The consulting engineer recommended removing the unsuitable material, replacing the material with compacted fill and replacing the collapsed drainage structure.


Quotes were solicited and received from the District’s continuing services general contractors based on estimated quantities provided by the consulting engineer. Canaveral Construction Company, Inc. is the lowest responsive and responsible bidder at $49,820. The final cost will be based on actual quantities of material excavated and replaced to be monitored by the engineer of record.


The total estimated project cost including design, construction, administration, permitting, inspection and reserve  is $70,320.


Funding is available in the FY 2014-15 capital budget for the project.


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 retention basin repair at Rockledge High School softball field for a total project cost of $70,320.


Approve the quote submitted by Canaveral Construction Company, Inc. under their continuing contract for general contractor services in the amount of $49,820.
