Staff recommends approval of Amendment No. 1 to Task Order No. 3 to the “Agreement for Professional Services on a Continuing Basis” with Boyle Engineering for $315,008.00.
Boyle Engineering was previously placed under contract to provide Construction Engineering Inspection services for the construction phase of the City’s Wastewater Treatment Facility at Canal Street. This amendment provides for additional services, detailed below.
This request is related to the contractor's time extension, services related to value engineering and the services that were provided to respond to the unknown subsurface conditions that were encountered during construction. Staff believes the additional services provided by Boyle have resulted in significant benefits to the City of Leesburg.
Staff has briefly summarized the cost savings that have accrued to the project in the paragraphs below:
Value Engineering/Cost Savings Effort provided by Boyle:
This aspect of the project has been a joint effort on the part of City staff and Boyle's staff which has been successful in making over $1.2 million in project savings. Boyle’s assistance with our negotiations with the contractor has resulted in over $198,000 in price reductions on RPCs submitted by the contractor.
Value Engineering Items Savings on City’s WWTP- $ 1,016,960.51
Negotiated Savings of Contractor RPC Costs - $ 198,864.37
Current Value Engineering Items on Ops Building - $ 30,947.26
TOTAL SAVINGS: - $ 1,246,772.14
Redesign of Ground Storage Tank
In addition to the savings above, the City elected to build a 4 mg ground storage tank instead of the originally designed 2.0 mg tank. It is considerably less expensive to build a single 4 mg tank as compared to two 2 mg tanks. Boyle redesigned to accommodate the 4 mg tank. The final RPC cost for the tank change was $441,700 (Part of Change Order 5). We estimate that the construction cost for a single 2 mg storage tank would be about $1,000,000. This cost would also include additional piping, electrical, and other miscellaneous items. By implementing the larger tank now, the City has avoided $558,300 in future costs. The savings are potentially even more when expressed in future dollars.
Combined, the City has saved a total of $1,805,072.14 as part of Boyle's assistance on the City’s WWTP project.
Amendment No. 1 requests an additional $315,008.00 in engineering fees. The fee related to the value engineering and redesign services is approximately $115,583. This fee represents about 7% of the total savings.
1. Approve Amendment No. 1 as presented, or;
2. Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate
The additional fee will be funded from current revenues from the water fund. Approximately 20% of the total cost of the amendment is eligible for direct reimbursement under the terms of a previous grant from the St. Johns River Water Management District.
