Agenda Title:

Council action is requested to issue a purchase order to Renaissance Infrastructure Consulting Incorporated, in the amount of  $79,886.00 for Architectural and Engineering Services for the Raymond, Harkless, to Mills Stormwater project for the Water Pollution Control Department. 

Council action to issue a purchase order.


Located between E 26th Terrace Ct S and E 27th Terrace South, east of RD Mize in the Crackerneck Watershed, the Raymond, Harkless, to Mills Stormwater Project will address flooding in this residential neighborhood. This area has a history of reported flooding and a neighborhood questionnaire sent out last year confirmed that at least 4 homes have flooded.


After the development of a scope of work, three firms were considered for the engineering design: Renaissance Infrastructure Consultants (RIC), HDR, and Olsson Associates. Based upon their past performances and their abilities to adhere to contract schedules, WPC staff selected the firm of Renaissance Infrastructure Consultants for the engineering surveying and design. Then a scope and fee was negotiated with RIC.


This project is a budgeted item in the Water Pollution Control Department’s FY18-19 other improvements budget.


Renaissance Infrastructure Consultants was selected per State Statute 8.285, et seq, which calls for seeking architectural, engineering and land surveyor services based on qualifications.  The Purchasing Division issued a Request for Qualifications annually and has established a qualified list for such services.


Approval of this item authorizes the Procurement Manager to issue change orders up to a total of ten (10) percent of the original authorized amount for each order, providing appropriations are available.
