Explanation

 

1. BACKGROUND:  This Ordinance authorizes the Director of Public Utilities to renew the professional engineering services agreement with Resource International, Inc. for the Home Road Property Demolition Project, Capital Improvements Project No. 690026-100016, Division of Water Contract No. 2139.

 

The Division of Water purchased property at the south east corner of Home Road and SR 745, abutting the west bank of the Scioto River, for construction of future facilities.  The Division has no operational use for the majority of the existing structures on the site and contracted with Resource International, Inc. to perform the design, preparation of bidding documents, and assistance during bidding for the demolition project.

 

Demolishing the existing facilities will reduce operation and maintenance costs and prepare the site for eventual development by the City.  Demolition includes removal of above and below grade structures, buried and above ground utilities, and other features. 

 

Renewal No. 1 (current) will establish Engineering Services During Construction, including Abatement Construction Inspection Services.

 

Planning Area = “99-N/A” since work is being performed in southwest Delaware County, outside established community planning areas.

 

1.1 Amount of additional funds to be expended:  $234,000.00

Original Contract Amount:                     $520,000.00  (PO062857)

Renewal No. 1 (current):                     $234,000.00

Total (Orig. + Renewal No. 1):                     $754,000.00

 

1.2. Reason other procurement processes are not used: 

The work being performed was anticipated under original authorizing legislation, Ordinance No. 0665-2017.  The original contract was to perform evaluation, design and preparation of bidding documents to demolish the existing structures at the Home Road property.  This renewal will provide for Engineering Services During Construction in conjunction with the Professional Construction Management services that will be provided by Hill International, Inc.

 

1.3. How cost of renewal was determined:

Resource International, Inc. prepared a detailed estimate of cost per task for detailed scope of work, broken down by project task.  City Project management staff reviewed and approved these cost summaries.

 

2. ECONOMIC IMPACT/ADVANTAGES; COMMUNITY OUTREACH; PROJECT DEVELOPMENT; ENVIRONMENTAL FACTORS/ADVANTAGES OF PROJECT: 

This property was purchased for construction of a future 4th water plant and also to provide protection/control of the riparian corridor for this 130 +/- acre property.  As part of the demolition project a decommissioned wastewater treatment plant directly adjacent to the Scioto River will be properly demolished.  The Scioto River is a major component of the water supply for the City of Columbus.  Protection of the riparian corridor for this water supply will help ensure the quality of the water supply for the City of Columbus.
