Agenda Title:

Council action is requested to authorize the City Manager to approve a construction contract with Rodriguez Mechanical for an amount not to exceed $282,370.00, authorizing future minor change orders for an amount not to exceed $28,237.00 and/or time extensions for the Noland Road Culvert Improvements Project (No. 70131801).

Approval of the request is recommended.
Executive Summary:

Approval is requested for a construction contract for the Noland Road Culvert Improvements Project (No. 70131801). The project will remove and replace an existing section of box culvert, repairs on existing box culvert, and install new storm sewer inlets for the site helping to eliminate damage of the existing structure and improve conveyance of stormwater on Noland Road within the project limits.

The existing box culvert was inspected and there was a section found to be deteriorated and needing to be replaced. Additionally, portions of the box culvert required preventative maintenance repairs. A design to remove the deteriorated section of the box culvert and complete the preventative maintenance repairs was completed, representing the Noland Road Culvert Improvements Project. This project includes installation of 31 linear feet of 8-ft. by 6-ft. storm sewer box culvert, 1 stormwater structure, 50 square ft. of stone replacement and tuckpointing repairs of the box culvert, and all appurtenant work for the completion of the project.


There were two construction bids for the project:


Tasco Construction (Bid was withdrawn) $ 160,819.00
Rodriguez Mechanical $ 282,370.00

Engineer’s Estimate $ 283,400.00

References for Rodriguez Mechanical were contacted and reviewed. Rodriguez Mechanical has the capacity to complete this work and has completed similar work in the metropolitan area and their bid is within the Engineer’s estimate. Their bid is being recommended for this contract.


Fiscal Impact:

Council will appropriate an additional $183,000.00 to previously-appropriated funds for this project. The construction contract would allocate $310,607.00 of Storm Water Sales Tax (SWST) funds for the Noland Road Culvert Improvements Project (No. 70131801).
