Facilities Services has been working with Merritt Island High School to develop a project to renovate the existing wrestling room to create a classroom for the orchestra. The scope of work includes mre acoustical ceiling, new lighting, paint, drywall and acoustical panels on four walls as well as other renovations to the new wrestling room.

Wharton Smith, Inc. has submitted a Guaranteed Maximum Price (GMP) in an amount not to exceed $116,885 under their continuing contract for construction management services based on drawings prepared by Architects RZK, Inc. under their continuing contract for architectural services. Facilities Services is also supporting the project with some in-house electrical modifications and providing carpet squares to reduce the cost of the project. 

The project will be funded through program-related capital, sales surtax renewal (paint) and funding from Merritt Island High School. The GMP includes a large contingency due to some additional cost items that may be funded by the school and possibly some roof repair that may be needed and funded through capital.  

Board approval is required for purchase orders over $50,000. The standard form of the agreement has been used which does not require legal review. 



Approve the project budget and Guaranteed Maximum Price submitted by Wharton Smith, Inc. in an amount not to exceed $116,885 under their continuing contract for construction management services for the Merritt Island High School orchestra classroom project.
