The School Board approved a Guaranteed Maximum Price (GMP) submitted by Wharton Smith, Inc. for construction management services for facility renewal at Saturn Elementary School on April 27, 2021. The scope of work primarily included domestic water system renewal, sanitary sewer system renewal, student group restroom renovation and site drainage and parking modifications. An owner-directed change order, in the amount of $30,891.93, was administratively approved for renovations to the serving line area. This change order was funded by Food and Nutrition Services. 

Because the summer construction schedule was compressed, the scope of work was limited. However, the team did accomplish a prototype classroom renovation (in 2 classrooms) that will serve as a model for future upgrades to outdated classrooms. The scope of work, reflected in owner-directed change order #2, includes replacing the accordion-style wall assembly with framed walls, adding LED lighting fixtures, replacing the flooring and relocating the data cabling, The cost of the prototype renovation is $42,712.61.  The prototype classroom renovation will be funded through capital. 

Board approval is required for change orders in excess of 10% of the contract value or cumulative amount of $50,000. The cumulative amount of change orders #1 and #2 exceeds the threshold for administrative approval.  The standard agreement template has been used which does not require legal review. 


Approve owner-directed change order #2 to the contract with Wharton Smith, Inc. for construction management services at Saturn Elementary School for prototype classroom renovation in the amount of $42,712.61.
