There was a fire at Freedom 7 Elementary School in the staff restroom in Building 3 the evening of August 4. There was extensive damage to the staff restroom and collateral damage (water, smoke) to the entire building. Facilities Services requested assistance from Canaveral Construction, Co., Inc. under their continuing contract for construction management services for demolition, remediation and reconstruction.

The demolition and remediation have been ongoing so the majority of the building could be used. Canaveral Construction,Co., Inc. has submitted an invoice for the work consistent with the agreed upon scope of work in the amount of $63,318.55.  The project will be initially funded through capital while pursuing cost recovery from a third party. A Guaranteed Maximum Price proposal is under development for reconstruction of the restrooms. Because of the age and condition, the scope of work may be extensive to upgrade plumbing and other systems to current code standards. 

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 invoice from Canaveral Construction, Co., Inc. in the amount of $63,318.55 for the demolition and remediation in Building 3 at Freedom 7 Elementary School resulting from the August 4, 2022 fire.
