Agenda Item #24

Audubon Elementary School Structural Column Repairs Buildings 18 and 19 - Construction Management Services


Due to deterioration, replacement of thirty-six (36) columns are needed at Audubon Elementary School, Buildings 18 and 19. The District is currently under a continuing services contract with H.J. High Construction for HVAC services at the school. Because H.J. High already has mobilized and has supervisory staff on site, the cost for the structural repair can be reduced by utilizing their services.

The structural repair is not a part of the sales surtax scope of services underway at Audubon, so a separate Guaranteed Maximum Price (GMP) was requested based on a design provided by Droor & Associates under their continuing services contract. H.J. High Construction provided a GMP in an amount not to exceed $120,084.87 for the structural repair. This is not a change order to their HVAC project.

The total project budget for the structural repair project including  design, construction, administration, permitting, inspections, testing and contingency is estimated not to exceed $156,264.87.

Funding is budgeted in the FY 2014-15 Capital Fund for the project.

Board approval is required for a purchase order over $25,000.00. In order to expedite this work, approval is requested as consent agenda item without prior information.


Approve the total project budget for Audubon Elementary School Structural Column Repairs Buildings 18 and 19 in an amount not to exceed $156,264.87.

Approve the Guaranteed Maximum Price as submitted by H.J. High Construction under their Continuing for Construction Management Services for the project an the amount not to exceed $120,084.87.
