Approve a Resolution to execute a contract change order with BKF Engineers in an amount not to exceed $71,502 and include a 10% contingency for additional infrastructure improvement design services for the New Police Facility, CIP Project No. 336-3110.
On January 22, 2002, the City Council authorized staff to execute a design contract with BKF Engineers to design the infrastructure improvements needed to build a New Police Facility, CIP Project No. 336-3110.
Staff continues to develop the infrastructure improvement designs by determining the most cost efficient construction methods that will serve the New Police Facility for the long term. From the preliminary design alternatives and information collected from a field survey, staff has determined the most practical sewer connection is to connect north of the site, under Central Boulevard along the railroad track, to the West Sanitary Sewer. This sewer line will also serve the surrounding properties development to the north of the site across Central Boulevard and also to the west across Walnut Boulevard. Staff anticipates that some costs associated with this sewer line will be recovered from benefiting properties as these properties develop. In an attempt to secure the site and to alleviate as much construction surrounding the future police facility, staff will increase the size of the sewer line and design the line to connect to the West Interceptor Sewer.
Due to the increase in the scope of work for the sanitary sewer, additional costs for design, survey, staking, soils and design will be incurred. Staff has also included a Fiber Optic conduit design to be installed as part of the trench work that will run to just south of the existing trail at Marsh Creek. The storm drain portion of the project has been problematic, but staff feels that the revised design incorporating an 84” pipe, a junction structure and a 42” pipe to be installed next to the existing 72” pipe under Central Boulevard will keep Central Boulevard open to traffic and solve our flow issues. Staff has also determined that a storm drain pump station constructed with Central Boulevard will no longer be needed and will be demolished as part of the sewer and storm drain work. The joint trench work to support the building has also been added to the scope of work. In order to continue with the “fast track” design efforts, staff requests the change order be approved.
Funds for the change order are budgeted within the CIP project (New Police Station), CIP No. 336-3110.
