Discussion

The sales surtax renewal plan included electrical renewal at Stone Magnet Middle School. 

The Board approved the Guaranteed Maximum Price submitted by Heard Construction, Inc. in an amount not to exceed $402,673.28 for the electrical renewal project at Stone Middle School under their continuing contract for construction management services at the January 18, 2022 School Board meeting. The scope of services included testing the electrical feeders but intentionally did not include replacement of the feeders. This is our standard protocol for the District's electrical renewal projects when the condition of the electrical feeders is a potential concern. At Stone, the testing indicated numerous feeder lines that need to be replaced. The condition of the buried conduit is also unknown, but assumed to be poor. 

Consequently, at the District's request, Heard Construction, Inc. has submitted Change Order #1 to replace the identified feeder lines and conduit in the amount of $330,405.54 with a contract time extension of 153 days. The project will be funded through facility renewal capital or an additional allocation of 2020 sales surtax renewal following consultation with the Independent Citizens Oversight Committee (ICOC) in June. The ICOC has previously supported additional allocation of 2020 sales surtax revenue to electrical renewal projects, including Stone. 

Administration and permitting costs have been previously budgeted.

Board approval is required for change orders exceeding $50,000 (cumulative) or 10% of the initial contract amount.  The standard form of the agreement has been used which does not require legal review.

Recommendation

Increase the total construction budget for the Stone Middle School electrical renewal project in the amount of $330,405.54.

Approve the owner-directed Change Order #1 submitted by Heard Construction, Inc. to replace the identified feeder lines and conduit at Stone Middle School in the amount of $330,405.54 and a contract time extension of 153 days.
