Staff recommends approval of change order #2 with Mark Cook Builders, Inc. for the installation of a new roof for the LBTC for $52,440.00 at the Leesburg Business & Technology Center (LBTC)/Incubator.
The LBTC will provide space for small and emerging companies and technology entrepreneurship by enabling rapid growth of incubator clients. The LBTC is currently being renovated to allow for 12 newly renovated offices that will facilitate space for eight (8) new businesses and the remaining offices will be occupied by the Housing & Economic Development Department. The proposed change order is to allow for removal of the existing rubber roof, and installation of a new base underlayment, mopped granular rubber roof. The new roof will have a life expectancy of approximately 15 years. The cost of the change order ($52,440.00) will be paid from grant funding provided by USDA Rural Development and City General funding.
This request requires a two-step approval. If approved by the Commission, Staff will then apply for a contract change order with the USDA Rural Development Agency. Approval from the USDA Rural Development Agency is necessary prior to spending grant funds.
1. Approve the proposed change order #2 for $52,440.00; or
2. Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate
Funding is pending USDA approval. Once the change order is approved by the Commission the City can obtain approval from the USDA.
