|SUBJECT / RECOMMENDATIONS|
Approve Design Development for Transportation Maintenance Facility Upgrades at Two Sites (East Bay, Airport Road)
To improve Transportation Department operations and staff working conditions, remodeling and expansion of Transportation maintenance facilities at East Bay and Airport Road in Plant City is required. District staff combined the requirements at the two sites into a single project and appointed Wilder Architecture, Inc. and The A. D. Morgan Corporation from the approved Continuing Services Consultants list to provide design and construction management services. The scope of work provides for additional maintenance bays and parts storage within a new pre-engineered metal building at each site. The scope also includes a covered quick service area at the East Bay site; a new employee break area at the Airport Road site; and paving and drainage improvements at both sites.
Approval of design development as illustrated in the attachment will allow the design professional to proceed with construction documents.
Due to the long lead time for delivery of the pre-engineered metal buildings, approval to acquire the buildings in advance of guaranteed maximum price (GMP) approval is also requested. Project completion is scheduled for August 2015.
|• Construct and maintain facilities that create an environment conducive to teaching and learning|
|FINANCIAL IMPACT (Budgeted: Yes)|
Construction budget is $2,000,000, which includes approximately $450,000 for the pre-engineered metal buildings. Costs for this item shall be funded by District Capital Outlay: Local Millage.
