BILL NO. 17-0341st R.

Agenda Title:

17-034 - 1R. An ordinance authorizing execution of a contract with Central Industrial Sheet Metal Works, Inc., in an amount not to exceed $206,800.00, for the Blue Valley Masonry Wall Repair project; and authorizing future minor change orders for an amount not to exceed $20,680.00 and/or time extensions.

Staff recommends approval of the ordinance.

The Blue Valley Masonry Wall Repair Project is required since the current condition of the masonry wall is a safety hazard. The cracking and bowed condition has reduced the capacity of the masonry to resist lateral loads such as wind. Further bowing could also overstress the remaining masonry. Outward movement of the brick façade is causing bricks to fall to work areas below the damaged section. The masonry wall must be repaired to prevent additional destructive movement of the wall.

The project includes construction of a steel bracing system for an existing masonry wall on the north side of the plant from the boiler steam drum level to the roof parapet approximately 50 feet wide. Steel bracing consists of vertical steel tubes attached to interior steel framing, through bolts, and horizontal exterior retainer channels. The existing masonry and stone coping will remain. Tuck-pointing of existing cracks and repair of limited area of the interior concrete masonry wall is to be performed as well. Roof will be patched along length of wall where existing roofing must be removed for steel work.

Proposals were solicited publicly for the Blue Valley Masonry Wall Repair project. Bids were advertised publicly, as is legally required by City Code, via the local newspaper and The Daily Record. The City received and publically opened two bids for this project. Bids were received from Central Industrial Sheet Metals Works Inc. (CI) and Rand Construction. Of these two responses, CI provided the lowest, responsive bid for the project.

Fiscal Impact:

Funds for this project have been reserved using requisition 65089 under the 2015-2016 budget account 6140-6211-51110041.
