CITY COUNCIL AGENDA ITEM NO. 12
Meeting Date: January 23, 2001

Subject/Title: Approve a Resolution accepting the work performed by Shoemate Buildings, Inc. for the City of Brentwood Family Aquatic Complex (CIP Project No. 522-5202); and directing the City Clerk to file a notice of completion with the recorder's office of Contra Costa County for said project

Submitted by: Dennis Beougher, City Attorney
Craig D. Bronzan, Director of Parks and Recreation

Approved by: Jon Elam, City Manager

RECOMMENDATION
Approval of a Resolution accepting the work performed by Shoemate Buildings, Inc. for the City of Brentwood Family Aquatic Complex (CIP No. 522-5202); and directing the City Clerk to file a Notice of Completion with the Recorder’s Office of Contra Costa County for said project.

PREVIOUS ACTION
On September 28, 1999, the Council awarded the construction contract for the City of Brentwood Family Aquatic Complex (CIP No. 522-5202) to Shoemate Buildings, Inc. On October 12, 1999, the City of Brentwood sent Shoemate Buildings, Inc. Notice to Proceed for the Family Aquatic Complex.

BACKGROUND
The Aquatic Complex was scheduled to open on Memorial Day, 2000. Various delays caused the pool to open on Labor Day, 2000. Contractual delay damages will be assessed against the contractor for this delay in the amount of $156,000.

Even though the City began the use of the pool on Labor Day, many items remained subject to replacement or repair. The City gave the general contractor more than 120 days to complete the installation, repair, or replacement the complex after the City obtained beneficial occupancy of the pool. As of the date of this staff report, numerous punch list items remain uncompleted or not acceptable to the City. Those items that have not been completed to the City's staff satisfaction have been given a monetary value and the City will move forward with corrective repairs or replacement of these items. The estimated value of these repairs is estimated to be approximately $208,000.

The City has received some claims for non-payment from subcontractors as well as a claim for prevailing wage violation. The claims for non-payment are approximately $55,000 as of the date of this staff report, but could increase during the statutory 35-day period after filing of the Notice of Completion. Additional amounts may be withheld based upon the results of a hearing held on the prevailing wage claim filed by Plumbers Union.

The Contractor has disputed that there is any liquidated damages, the entire punch list damage amount, and the prevailing wage claim. Notwithstanding the contractor's dispute concerning these claims and damages, the City staff recommends City Council's acceptance of the Aquatic Complex and direct the City Attorney to resolve the disputed damages and claims.
