The 2021 District bleacher inspection report rated the home side stadium bleachers at Space Coast Jr./Sr. High School in poor structural condition. Based on further review by District staff and other experts, the home side bleachers were taken out of service in December 2021. An analysis of repair vs. replacement cost yielded a recommendation to replace the stadium bleachers.  The School Board approved the preconstruction services contract with Wharton Smith, Inc. that included the demolition of the home side bleachers at their May 10, 2022 meeting.

Wharton Smith, Inc. has submitted a Guaranteed Maximum Price for the home side stadium bleacher replacement project in an amount not to exceed $1,496,209 under their continuing contract for construction management services, based on a design by TLC Engineering for Architecture. Administration and permitting costs have been previously budgeted. 

The Independent Citizens Oversight Committee (April 20, 2022 meeting) supported staff's recommendation to fund this project through 2020 sales surtax revenue that has not been allocated ($1.7 million). The funding is from 2020 sales surtax revenue over the revenue projections allocated for facility renewal. 

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 total project construction budget for the replacement of the home side bleachers at Space Coast Jr./Sr. High School in the amount of $1,496,209.

Approve the Guaranteed Maximum Price submitted by Wharton-Smith Inc. in the amount not to exceed $1,496,209 for the replacement of the home side bleachers at Space Coast Jr./Sr. High School under their continuing contract for construction management services.

Approve the allocation of 2020 sales surtax revenue for this project (up to $1.7 million).
