Agenda Item #28

Sea Park Elementary School - Design Build Preconstruction Services - SALES SURTAX


Sea Park Elementary School is eighth on the priority list for sales surtax facility renewal projects. The scope of work is anticipated to be under $2 million; consequently Project Management staff requested a proposal from Heard Construction, Inc. under their design-build continuing services contract with the District. Their proposal is based on the Sales Surtax Funded Detailed Report (Attachment F) and the Design Criteria Package prepared by RZK Architects, Inc.

Under Heard's proposal as the design-builder, the design will be done by BRPH as a sub-consultant. Heard will coordinate the design and conduct all other pre-construction activities (such as estimating, subcontractor bidding, developing the Guaranteed Maximum Price (GMP), determining owner direct purchases, scheduling and coordination with District staff and staff at Sea Park). The estimated construction budget is approximately $1.8 million, which is consistent with the Attachment F budget. Based on the proposed schedule, the Guaranteed Maximum Price Amendment for construction will be submitted mid-February for School Board consideration.

The preconstruction services proposal is $104,400. Estimated staff time to be charged to this phase of the project is $3,000. The project is funded through the sales surtax and is included in the reporting to the Independent Citizens Oversight Committee.

Board approval is required for purchase orders over $50,000. In order to expedite the work, approval is requested as a consent item without prior information.


Approve the budget for preconstruction services in an amount not to exceed $107,400.

Approve the preconstruction services proposal submitted by Heard Construction, Inc. in the amount of $104,400.
