Agenda Item #35

Atlantis Elementary School - Educational Technology - Preconstruction Design Build Services - SALES SURTAX


Atlantis Elementary School is scheduled for educational technology infrastructure renewal including structured cabling and student station power/technology HVAC, as identified in the Sales Surtax Funded Detailed Report. In addition, Plant Operations & Maintenance staff have identified the Atlantis Elementary School fire alarm and intercom components as critical components that need to be addressed as soon as possible.

The District's Project Manager developed a Design Criteria Package (DCP) that incorporates the fire alarm and intercom system renewal with the educational technology renewal project. Based on the Design Criteria Package, staff requested a proposal from Heard Construction, Inc. for preconstruction services under their continuing contract with the District for design build services.  

Under Heard's proposal as the design builder, the design will be done by Premier Engineering as a sub-consultant. Heard will coordinate the design and conduct all other preconstruction activities such as estimating, subcontractor bidding, developing the Guaranteed Maximum Price (GMP), determining owner direct purchases, scheduling and coordination with District staff at Atlantis Elementary. The estimated project budget is approximately $713,452, consistent with the Attachment F budget. The GMP price amendment is expected by March 2016.

The preconstruction services proposal is $61,390. Estimated staff time to be charged to this phase of the project is $3,000. Note that the funding strings segregate the facility renewal item and the educational technology items prorated based on the Attachment F budget. The project 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 $64,390 for Atlantis Elementary School.

Approve the preconstruction services proposal submitted by Heard Construction, Inc. in the amount of $61,390 for Atlantis Elementary School.
