Staff recommends approval of Change Order No. 1 to Rainey Construction in the amount of $37,843.00.
On June 8, 2009, the City Commission authorized a contract with Rainey Construction for construction of reclaimed water mains and a sanitary force main in the amount of $1,068,591.66. The work involved construction of reclaimed water mains to serve Arlington Ridge and Legacy, a reclaimed water main extension to serve the golf course at Plantation, and a sanitary force main to serve the master lift station at Plantation.
The main extensions to serve Plantation were to be constructed in the Progress Energy transmission line easement that runs between SR 33 and Plantation. Use of this easement would avoid significant costs of restoration that would be necessary if an alternate route through Plantation was used. There were significant delays in obtaining Progress Energy’s permission to use their easement. A large portion of this Change Order is associated with the costs of demobilization and remobilization by the contractor. The remaining items are adjustments for field conditions. These are aggregated into this final, reconciling change order for the contract.
The contractor requested $81,220.53; following several meetings, staff reduced the requested amount to $37,843.00, which is the recommended amount for Change Order No.1.
1. Approve Change Order No. 1 to Rainey Construction in the amount of $37,843.00; or,
2. Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate
Funds are available from the 2007 Utility Bond Issue, but are in a different project. A bond reallocation for the Water Fund is necessary to move the bond funds between projects and has been included on this agenda for approval. There is no additional impact on operating or reserve funds.
