AGENDA MEMORANDUM

 

 

Meeting Date:           September 27, 2010

 

From:                          Mike Thornton, Purchasing Manager

 

Subject:                      Resolution approving execution of an agreement with Mott Concrete, Inc. to construct a parking lot at the City Employee Wellness Center

 

 

Staff Recommendation:

Staff recommends approval of the agreement with Mott Concrete, Inc. for construction services in the amount of $17,850.00.

 

Analysis:

An agreement of this dollar value does not require commission action and is normally not presented.  This agreement is being presented with the building renovation contract to provide a true project cost.

 

City ordinance requires a parking lot to be constructed in order to use the current Cultural Arts Building as an Employee Wellness Center.  This would be no different than a business wanting to use the building for commercial purposes.  A parking lot would be required.

 

The Public Works/Engineering Division provided the design of an eight stall parking lot located behind the building adjacent to Ball Park Road.  Given the close proximity to Lake Harris, the low water table is a concern with any construction project in the area.  The Cultural Arts Building is actually constructed on top of many concrete pilings driven into the ground.

 

The shallow water table caused concern in the design of the parking lot.  Public Works provided designs for two construction methods.  The City accepted quotes on a base bid of constructing the parking lot with Asphalt and an alternate bid to construct the parking lot using concrete.  Constructing the parking lot from concrete is the preferred method not only because of the water table concerns but also for improved wear and long term maintenance.

 

The Purchasing Division placed the project out to bid and invited 5 local firms to provide quotes.  Quotes from four vendors were received and are summarized here.
