Discussion

The 2020 sales surtax plan includes District-wide investment in air conditioning for tech rooms. The project scope is to provide mini-split units to air condition tech rooms which typically generate much more heat. This allows a smaller unit to focus additional air conditioning in tech rooms. This approach is more energy efficient and also provides redundancy for making sure the technology equipment remains cool and functional.

Several aspects of the 2014 sales surtax facility renewal project at the Educational Services Facility (ESF) are currently underway including HVAC renewal.  Since Heard Construction is already on site with HVAC subcontractors, an owner-directed change order was requested to install the mini-split units in seven tech rooms at ESF.  The change order amount is $104,701.96 and also includes a contract time extension of 92 days related to material delays. The project will be funded through 2020 sales surtax renewal and contingency (surtax) available from within the HVAC project. Administration and permitting costs are already budgeted. 

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

 

Recommendation

Increase the total construction budget for air conditioning the tech rooms at ESF in the amount of $104,701.96.

Approve the owner-directed Change Order #1 submitted by Heard Construction, Inc. to install air conditioning in the tech rooms at ESF in the amount of $104,701.96 and a contract time extension of 92 days.
