FROM: DIRECTOR OF PUBLIC WORKS
DATE: April 4, 2006
SUBJECT: AUTHORIZATION FOR COUNCIL TO AWARD A CONSTRUCTION CONTRACT FOR THE RELOCATION OF THE STORM DRAIN AT 7460 ALIDA PLACE TO GCI Construction, INC. AND CONSTRUCTION MANAGEMENT AND INSPECTION SERVICES TO DMc ENGINEERING
Staff Coordinator: Bindu Vaish, Assistant Engineer
In late 2003, city staff was informed by the property owner of 7460 Alida Place that the city storm drain on his property is not in the recorded easement. City staff hired a consultant to investigate the location of the storm drain.The consultant confirmed that the storm drain is on private property and not on the recorded easement.
In August 2005 city staff went to the city council and received authorization to prepare engineering plans and specifications to abandon the existing storm drain and construct new storm drain outside private property (attachment A). Plans and specifications were completed in Jan. 2006.
In Jan. 2006 the storm drain relocation project was advertised. Seven bids for proposed construction were received as follows:
BID SUMMARY RESULTS
Out of these seven bidders, GCI construction has the lowest bid. City staff has also checked references including the city of Palos Verdes Estates, and the City of Dana Point. These references have confirmed that GCI had completed work within budget, on time and with good workmanship. Based upon GCI’s bid and references, city staff recommends that the construction contract should be awarded to GCI in the amount not to exceed $88,888.
In addition the relocation of the storm drain construction will require construction management and inspection services for 45 days. The firm of DMc engineering has been retained by the City to provide on call professional services and has provided a proposal for construction management and inspection services at a cost not to exceed $9,600. Therefore, staff recommends that DMc engineering be authorized to provide the necessary inspections for this project.
The total cost of this project including, construction, construction management and contingency is $98,480. Since the project was not adopted in the 2004-2005 fiscal year approved budget, additional fund approval is required in the storm drain maintenance fund. City staff recommends that an amount of $98,480 should be transferred from the general fund reserve to the storm drain maintenance fund.
In conclusion the results of adopting staff recommendation includes:
•Abandon existing storm drain and construct new storm drain outside private property at the cost of $98,480.
•Transfer $98,480 from general fund reserve to storm drain maintenance fund.
Funding for this project must come from General Fund Reserves see (resolution 2006_ as attachment "B"). An estimated General Fund reserve at June 2006 is presented in attachment "C".
