AGENDA MEMORANDUM

 

 

Meeting Date:           March 10, 2008

 

From:                          Mike Thornton, Purchasing Manager

 

Subject:                      Resolution authorizing an agreement with Price Construction, Inc. for improvements to the Lake Point Booster Pump Station

 

 

Staff Recommendation:

Staff recommends execution of the agreement with Price Construction, Inc. for construction services for $299,064.00.

 

Analysis:

This project is to construct improvements at the Lake Pointe Booster Pump Station on Sleepy Hollow Road.  The improvements generally include adding new drive pumps and installing larger piping to service the area.

 

This project is a re-bid of an earlier solicitation for this pump station improvement.  The previous solicitation generated only one response and the price bid was significantly higher than the amount budgeted.  Staff requested the project engineer change some of the design elements and also change the pipe installation to an open cut across the roadway in place of a more expensive jack and bore.  The City has received the roadway open cut permit from Lake County and can now proceed with the project.

 

On January 7, 2008 the Purchasing Division issued Invitation to Bid number 80131.  On February 19, 2008 we received 4 responses.  Staff and the project engineer have evaluated the bids received and have deemed the low bidder Price Construction, Inc. as the lowest responsive and responsible bidder.  Following is a summary of the bids received.
