Staff recommends approval of Work Order No. 12 with Hanson Professional Services, Inc.
The City of Leesburg has a fully executed grant (JPA) from FDOT for $400,000.00 (80% paid for by FDOT and 20% paid for by the City) to upgrade airfield lighting and signage at Leesburg International Airport. The lighting was last upgraded approximately 24 years ago. The wiring was not installed using conduit and watertight cans were not used to house individual transformers. As a result, the airfield lighting is subject to damage from lightening strikes and attacks from bugs (roaches, ants, etc.) that eat the insulation off the wires. Upgrading the airfield lighting and signage will reduce annual maintenance costs.
There are two approaches to this project. One is to let the airport consulting firm, Hanson Professional Services, Inc. engineer and oversee the project. The other is to utilize the Design/Build process. Using Design/Build will yield a larger percent of the $400,000.00 being spent on actual upgrades and less money being paid to the consulting firm. The attached Work Order No. 12 represents the Design/Build concept. For a contract price of $33,475.00, Hanson Professional Services will assist the City in the Design/Build concept by providing the following:
1. Approve Work Order No. 12 with Hanson Professional Services, Inc.; or
2. Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate
Funding for this project was rolled into the current year airport budget from FY 06/07. The contract price is $33,475.
