Explanation

BACKGROUND: This ordinance authorizes the Finance and Management Director to enter into a contract on behalf of the Office of Construction Management with Gutknecht Construction Company for the construction of Police Substation 1 at 8118 Sancus Boulevard.
This ordinance authorizes a contract for the construction of a LEED-certified 12,200 square foot building. The new Police Substation will allow the Division of Police to better serve the growing Far North Columbus community. In addition, the new Police Substation will include a small community gathering room. The expected opening of this new Police Substation is the third quarter of 2020.
Formal bids were solicited and the City received five bids on June 19, 2018 as follows (0 FBE, 0 MBE):
Palmetto Construction Services $7,235,177.00
Gutknecht Construction Company $7,370,500.00
R.W. Setterlin Building Company $7,591,000.00
2K General Construction Company $7,745.000.00
Thomas & Marker Construction Company $8,771,500.00

Palmetto Construction Services submitted the lowest bid, however was deemed non-responsive as they did not complete all required portions of the bid submission. R.W. Setterlin and 2K General were also deemed non-responsive, as they did not provide required unit prices in their bid submissions. The Office of Construction Management therefore recommends the bid award be made to the most responsive and responsible bidder, Gutknecht Construction Company.
It should be noted that $17,500.00 (in Streets and Highways Bond Fund proceeds) is being added to provide funding for construction inspection services performed by the Department of Public Service. When added to the $7,370,500.00 bid amount, this brings total project costs to $7,388,000.00.
Emergency action is requested so that the project may begin as soon as practical during the 2018 construction season.
