03-11-2008 Regular School Board Meeting
Agenda Item #40

H-17. Amendment #1 to Agreement for Design / Build Services for Additions and Renovations at Satellite High School


On 12/12/06 the Board approved the use of $1,574,800 in School Impact Fees for Satellite High School (Item E-15). On 2/13/07, the Board approved the use of $33,348,978 of the 2007 Series C COP proceeds for Satellite High School and a GMP in the amount of $28,000,000 with The Weitz Company LLC for Design/Build Services (F-21).  No additional funding is required for Amendment #1 – the $1,900,000 increase to the GMP will be funded by the School Impact Fees and Project Reserve.  An adequate project reserve remains in the project budget for unanticipated costs during the remainder of the project, now scheduled for Substantial Completion in November 2008.


The scope of Work has been revised as follows:

  1. Existing Building 9 will be demolished – the new 2-story Classroom Building (originally designed to replace only existing Buildings 8, 12 and 13) has been enlarged to incorporate all of the spaces in existing Building 9. 
  2. With the demolition of Building 9, a central courtyard will be created.
  3. Existing Buildings 1, 4 and 14 (originally designed to be renovated) will be demolished and a new 2-story Administration/Classroom Building and main entrance will be constructed.  Note: it was determined that it would be more economical to replace these buildings rather than renovate them, based on the costs experienced to address code deficiencies and unforseen conditions during renovations to existing buildings in Phase 1.  

 The extension to the Contract Time is required to perform the additional scope of Work.




Approve Amendment #1 to modify the existing Agreement for Design/Build Services for Additions and Renovations at Satellite High School with The Weitz Company, LLC to increase the Guaranteed Maximum Price (GMP) in the amount of $1,900,000 and extend the Contract Time by 209 days for the increased scope of Work identified in the Amendment.
