Staff recommends approval of change order #1 with Mark Cook Builders, Inc. to install a fire sprinkler system for $30,370.00 at the Leesburg Business & Technology Center/Incubator
The LBTC will provide office space for small and emerging companies and technology entrepreneurship by enabling rapid growth of incubator clients. The LBTC is currently being renovated to facilitate office space for eight (8) new businesses and remaining offices will be occupied by the Housing & Economic Development staff.
The proposed change order to install a fire sprinkler system is to accommodate the new change in the building codes relating to light hazard occupancy. In lieu of fire rated wall and doors the building code requires installation of a fire sprinkler system.
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 for$30,370.00; 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.
