BACKGROUND & ANALYSIS

The project consisted of repairing corrugated metal pipes (CMP) and lining the CMP’s with a cured in place polyethylene liner, video taping and cleaning the CMP’s and installing insertion pits and man holes. The contract for the project was awarded to Sancon Technologies, Inc. on April 5, 2005. Council approved two change orders for additional and emergency repair work on August 16, and November 15, 2005 respectively. These two change orders were made to the contract that allowed the contract to continue lining additional CMP’s. The original project required lining 11 CMP sections. CCO 1 was authorized to repair a total of eleven failing CMP’s staff discovered during the process of videotaping. Staff discovered an additional six sections that needed immediate repairs; accordingly Council authorized CCO 2 in the amount of 459,700. In total, 28 sections of CMP were lined through this project (approximately 4,000 feet).

All project work has been satisfactorily completed.

The final project costs are as follows:

Contract Award Amount $332,960
Authorized Contingency Budget $67,000
Approved Change Order No. 1 250,000
Approved Change Order No. 2 459,700
Authorized Total Construction Budget $1,109,660

Total Construction Costs $923,930.50

The total construction cost is less than estimated at the time Council authorized the Change Orders.

FISCAL IMPACT

This project was budgeted in the Water Quality Fund.

CONCLUSION

Sancon Technologies, Inc. has successfully completed all work in accordance with the plans and specifications. Therefore, the work should be accepted as complete and a Notice of Completion filed.
