Meeting Date: January 9, 2001

Subject/Title: Authorize the City Manager to execute an agreement with RGM and Associates for Construction Management Services.

Submitted by: Howard Sword, Economic Development Manager
Mike Merizon, Facilities Manager

Approved by: Jon Elam, City Manager

Authorize the City Manager to execute an agreement with RGM and Associates for Construction Management Services to Value Engineer the Contract Documents for the Brentwood Education and Technology Center (BETC) for $22,950.

Reject all bids for construction of the Brentwood Education and Technology Center; December 12, 2000. Los Medanos College Lease; June 27, 2000. Kares Construction Management Contract; November 3, 1999. 

Conversations with several individuals in the construction industry have confirmed that the improvements to the BETC should be able to be accomplished for a dramatically lower cost than was reflected in the Bids opened 12/5/00. A different approach to the project, however, will be necessary to accomplish this goal. Just re-bidding the existing construction documents would likely result in similar project cost. The attached proposal from RGM and Associates outlines the preliminary pre-construction analysis of the proposed scope of work as well as alternative methods to the actual construction of the project. 

Pre-Construction Services: 

§ Value Engineer Structural, Mechanical, Electrical and Plumbing systems to bring work scope into an acceptable budget.

§ Master Budget Compilation to detail project and construction costs to develop cost saving alternatives.

§ Master Schedule Compilation to provide timeframe considerations.

§ Analysis of Construction Options:

o Cost Plus with Guaranteed Maximum Construction Cost
o Public Sub-trade Bid Process
o Public General Contractor Bid Process

This work will provide an aggressive scope of work / cost reduction approach as well as an analysis of alternatives to execute the construction.
