Title
Roosevelt E.S. - Guaranteed Maximum Price HVAC Upgrades (Cooling Tower)

Discussion

The HVAC cooling tower unit serving the entire campus at Roosevelt Elementary School has deteriorated to the point that it is nearing the end of its useful life.  The replacement of this system was identified as part of the FY2013-14 Capital Budget.

Wharton-Smith Inc. has submitted a Guaranteed Maximum Price (GMP) under their Continuing Contract for Construction Management Services in the amount of $254,456.00 for the HVAC system upgrade.  The Total Project Cost for this work including the design, GMP, administration, permitting, inspection and contingency is estimated at $271,341.00.

Adequate funding has been identified and budgeted in the FY2013-14 Capital Funds for the design, GMP, administration, permitting, inspections and contingency cost for this 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.

Note: The GMP is based on Design Development documents, resulting in a larger than normal contingency.
