Agenda Title:

Council action is requested to issue a purchase order in the amount of $154,280.00 to The Wilson Group Group for renovation of the administrative office area in Fire Station One.  Expenditures will not exceed budgeted amounts.

Council action is recommended to issue a Purchase Order.

As part of the renovations that have been done to all stations since 2004, Station One - Administration is the last to receive these repairs and updates. The renovation will include remodel of Shift Commander quarters/office, window replacement, bathroom updates, replacement of flooring, general maintenance to wall covering and ceilings, and updating furniture and appliances.


It was determined that the utilization of the The Wilson Group would be a good fit for the construction needs as no major structure repairs were needed. The Wilson Group serves as the General Contractor and provides all associated services.The Wilson Group has been used for remodeling and renovations at other Fire Stations and City properties. All costs are regulated and defined by cooperative agreement NJPA 071415-GCI with Gordian Group. Work and billing are through The Wilson Group, a locally represented contractor under the Gordian Contract.  Our intent is to complete some of the work as we have defined out of 2016-2017 fiscal budget. 


Per section 8.06.004, Paragraph 5 of the City Code states competitive bidding is not required when purchases are made through a cooperative contract established by a government purchasing entity or cooperative. The cooperative bids used will have been established pursuant to RSMo. 70.220 or generally accepted governmental purchasing practices through the competitive bidding process.  Purchases by this method shall be exempt from Section 8.06.003 of the City Code and shall not require formal City Council approval, but will be reported in accordance with Section 8.06.003.


Approval of this agenda item includes change orders up to a total of ten (10) percent of the original purchase price.
