Agenda Item #24


Title
Southwest Middle School GMP for Technology Structured Cabling Upgrades - Close-out Change Order #1

Discussion
On 04/22/2014 the School Board approved Heard Construction, Inc. to provide Construction Management services to upgrade technology structured cabling systems at Southwest Middle School under their Continuing Contract for Construction Management Services with a Guaranteed Maximum Price (GMP) of $764,642.65. Reconciliation requested by the District has resulted in a credit in the amount of $234,051.91 for unspent contingency, sales tax savings and Owner Direct Purchase (ODP). The ODP portion of the credit in the amount of $208,316.28 is an administrative change only because the material and equipment were purchased directly by the District for installation by the Construction Manager. The remaining $25,734.63 will be returned to the Capital Fund to be used on future projects. There is no change in contract time. Because the cost of construction is over $300,000.00 the Florida Department of Education (FDOE) requires the Superintendent to sign the Certificate of Final Inspection (OEF-209) following certification by the Engineer/Architect of Record and the Building Official.
