Explanation

BACKGROUND: This legislation authorizes the Finance and Management Director to enter into a contract on behalf of the Office of Construction Management with Farber Corporation for the chiller system replacement at The Jerry Hammond Center, located at 1111 East Broad Street.
The project is to replace the chillers, cooling towers, pumps, and associated cooling equipment at 1111 E. Broad Street. The current chillers are 48 and 28 years old respectively. The American Society of Heating, Refrigerating, and Air-Condition Engineers list the useful life of these chiller systems at approximately 23 years. With both systems past their useful life it has become necessary to replace both units. The new chilling system will be approximately 50 percent (50%) more efficient than the existing system which should also reduce energy consumption. This upgrade will also include renovating a small portion of the roof that is original to the building and is in need of repair.
Formal bids were solicited and four bids were received on February 7, 2017 as follows (0 FBE, 0 MBE):
Farber Corporation $1,496,400
Julian Speer Company $1,575,150
Kirk Williams Company, Inc. $1,577,000
General Temperature Control $1,602,000

The Office of Construction Management recommends the bid award be made to the most responsive and responsible bidder, Farber Corporation.
Emergency action is requested to ensure the needed HVAC renovations can be completed as quickly as possible but especially before the summer months.
Farber Corporation Contract Compliance No. 31-0746886
