Recommendation to Accept the Work of McGuire & Hester for Fire Station No. 2 Pavement Improvements Project, No. PW 05-20-25. (Public Works 31041520)

Body

To: Honorable Mayor and Members of the City Council

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

On July 21, 2020, the City Council awarded a contract for the Fire Station No. 2 pavement improvements project to McGuire and Hester in the amount of $454,724.60. The project included demolition, removal, and hauling of the existing concrete slab and asphalt pavement from the back, sides and front of the Fire Station, installation of drainpipes and inlets and construction of new structural concrete and pavement installation. The improvements executed under the subject contract are complete and acceptable to staff. Staff is now recommending that the City Council accept the work.

BACKGROUND

The pavement condition at Fire Station No. 2, located at 636 Pacific Avenue, was deteriorated due to the age of the facility and the heavy loads of the equipment. A pavement improvement project for the station was allocated $119,000 in the Fiscal Year (FY) 2019-20 budget and $711,000 in FY 2020-21. The project consisted of demolition, removal, and construction of structural concrete and pavement which included new drainpipes and inlets. Due to the limited on-site space, the contractor performed the construction in three separate and coordinated phases. Phasing of the construction work was essential to accommodate the station's vehicles, engines, ambulances, rescue boats, and apparatus. The new pavement is expected to serve the station for many years into the future.

DISCUSSION

On July 21, 2020, the City Council awarded a contract in the amount of $454,724.60, including contingencies, to McGuire and Hester. The project was completed in accordance with the plans and specification and remained fully operational throughout the duration of construction. The final cost, including all extra work orders, is $412,458.
