Agenda Item #34

DeLaura Middle School - Guaranteed Maximum Price Phase 1 HVAC Replacement


The HVAC system at DeLaura Middle School serving the entire campus has deteriorated to the point that it is nearing the end of its useful life.  The first phase which includes replacing the equipment in the central HVAC plant and piping of this system was identified as part of the FY2013-14 Capital Budget.  On 2/11/2014 the Board approved the purchase of all related equipment for this initial phase as an Owner Direct Purchase (ODP) to realize sales tax savings. 

Amodie Engineering & Construction has submitted a Guaranteed Maximum Price (GMP) under their Continuing Contract for Design Build for MEP Projects in the amount of $1,808,417.00 for Phase 1 of the HVAC system upgrade.  The Total Project Cost for this work phase including the design, ODP amount, GMP, administration, permitting, inspections, and contingency is estimated at $2,122,818.00  

Adequate funding has been identified and budgeted in the FY2013-14 Capital Funds for the design, ODP amount, GMP, administration, permitting, inspections, and contingency costs for the project.     

School Board approval is required for Purchase Orders over $25,000.   In order to expedite the work, approval is requested as a consent item without previous information.
