Approve Guaranteed Maximum Price (GMP) for the Referendum Phase One Project at Knights and Lincoln Elementary Schools (Operations Division)
The District's referendum advertisement provides for partial heating, ventilating and air conditioning (HVAC) replacement at Knights and Lincoln Elementary Schools.  On February 5, 2019, District staff selected Fleischman-Garcia Architects and Planners, AIA, PA and Allstate Construction, Inc. to provide design and construction management services, respectively, through a selection committee.  Award was made based upon the score granted by the selection committee. 

Florida Statutes and School Board policy outline the process and requirements for selection of professional service consultants and construction managers.  Attachment A summarizes the process.  The process provides for the identification of the most highly qualified firms by a Selection Committee that includes representatives from several District divisions and the community.  Attachment B identifies the specific committee members participating in this selection and the organization represented by each.

A total of 32 design professionals and 29 construction management firms responded to the solicitation as shown in Attachment C.  Firms responding and the results of the initial evaluation by the Committee are recorded in Attachment D. Firms were awarded work based upon their order of finish as shown on Attachment E.

Approval of the Guaranteed Maximum Price (GMP), Attachment F, will establish the cost for the project.
Project substantial completion of Phase One is scheduled for August 1, 2019.
• Establish a strong foundation of financial stewardship • Demonstrate "best practices" in all aspects of safety: student, employee, visitor, facility, transportation, and health • Construct and maintain facilities that create an environment conducive to teaching and learning
The Guaranteed Maximum Price (GMP) recommended for approval for Phase One is $10,794,885, which is available in the Sales Tax Referendum funds.
