Staff recommends approval of a Final Reconciling Change Order to The Scott Partnership Architecture, Inc. for $10,394.08.
The Scott Partnership Architecture, Inc. is the firm which provided architectural services for the new City Gymnasium. The original contract was approved by the City Commission in 2004, but was placed on hold soon thereafter in order for city staff to complete site selection and site acquisition. In 2006, the contract was reactivated and work proceeded on final design and permitting. In the course of the work, several further adjustments were made to the contract to accommodate the inclusion of Red Raider Road design work, additional scope, and reimbursables.
The project has now been completed. The final reconciling quantities for the consultant final pay amount are primarily for required signed, sealed drawing sets for the contractor, and for permitting. The consultant originally requested a final reconciling change order of $26,777.75.
There were several issues remaining between the City and the consultant that required negotiation. The consultant has agreed to offer two credits which reduce the overall remaining amount. One credit is for excess construction costs incurred by the City related to improperly specified door hardware, and the other credit relates to difficulties incurred by the City during the design process. These credits total $16,383.72, which reduce the final reconciling amount to $10,394.08. The credits are reflected on the final Invoice No. 103349, attached.
1. Approve this final reconciling change order for $10,394.08; or,
2. Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate
The overall project budget, including land acquisition, construction and design and permitting was $3,731,741.00. Based upon our records, the amount paid for the project is $3,617,614.07, which includes this reconciling amount.
