Agenda Item #6


Title
Electrical Power and Data Infrastructure Upgrades at Whispering Hills

Discussion

The North Area Alternative Learning Center is being relocated from Culyer to Whispering Hills to reduce administrative staff.  Electrical power and data infrastructure upgrades are required in Buildings 10 and 11 to support this relocated program.  Kinley Corporation has submitted a Guaranteed Maximum Price (GMP) under their Continuing Contract for Construction Management Services in the amount of $81,465.64 for this work.  Adequate funding has been identified for the proposed GMP, administration, permitting, testing, inspection and contingency costs for a total project cost of $88,465.64.   

The Office of Adult Education has purchased computer equipment to upgrade five classrooms in Buildings 4 and 5 into computer labs for the Adult Education program currently located at Whispering Hills.  Electrical power and data infrastructure upgrades are required in Buildings 4 and 5 to support this new equipment.  Kinley Corporation has submitted a Guaranteed Maximum Price (GMP) under their Continuing Contract for Construction Management Services in the amount of $79,840.05 for this work. Adequate funding has been identified for the proposed GMP, administration, permitting, testing, inspection and contingency costs for a total project cost of $86,840.05.

Costs will be reduced by proceeding with both projects simultaneously.  

Because both projects exceed $25,000 Board approval is required.  Because this work must commence immediately in order to be completed prior to the beginning of the 2012-13 school year, the Superintendent has approved the issuance of purchase orders as emergency items.  Board approval is requested as a Consent Agenda Item without previous information to ratify the Superintendent's emergency approval.
