Agenda Item #33

Stone Middle School - Design Build Services - SALES SURTAX


Stone Middle School is funded in year 2 of the sales surtax program. The District awarded a design build contract and preconstruction services to Wharton Smith, Inc. in January 2017 following a competitive Request for Proposal process.

Wharton Smith, Inc. is submitting their Guaranteed Maximum Price (GMP) in two phases so that long lead time equipment can be ordered while the final pricing is completed for the entire project. This proposal includes the roofing, mechanical system renewal, controls and a small portion of the electrical scope, which is the majority of the project scope. The second GMP (building envelope and electrical) is scheduled to be submitted for the May 9 School Board meeting. Most of the work will be completed over the summer 2017, with the exception of the media center chiller and the air handling unit replacement.

The Phase I GMP is in the amount not to exceed $4,666,283. Administrative and permitting costs were already budgeted at $80,000 with the approval of the preconstruction services. Costs will be allocated in accordance with the attached worksheet.

Board approval is required for purchase orders over $50,000.


Approve the Phase I construction budget for Stone Middle School in the amount of $4,666,283.

Approve the Phase I Guaranteed Maximum Price submitted by Wharton Smith, Inc. in the amount not to exceed $4,666,283 for the Stone Middle School sales surtax project.
