Agenda Item #19


Title
Ocean Breeze Elementary School - HVAC Replacement - Close-Out

Discussion
On March 10, 2015 the School Board approved Wharton-Smith, Inc. to provide construction management services under their Continuing Contract for the replacement of HVAC equipment at Ocean Breeze Elementary School for a Guaranteed Maximum Price (GMP) in the amount of $937,553.00.  On April 28, 2015 the School Board approved Change Order No. 1 in the amount of $498,849.00, increasing the GMP to a total of $1,436,402.00.

The work has been completed.  Reconciliation requested by the District has resulted in a credit in the amount of $359,481.00 for unspent contingency, sales tax savings and Owner Direct Purchases (ODP).  The ODP portion of the credit in the amount of $195,194.81 is an administrative change only because the material and equipment were purchased directly by the District for installation by the construction manager.  The remaining $164,286.19 will be returned to the Capital Fund to be used on future projects.

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.


Recommendation
Authorize the Superintendent to sign FDOE OEF Form 209 - Certificate of Final Inspection for the project.
