Explanation

This ordinance is to authorize the Director of the Recreation and Parks Department to modify the contract with Gutknecht Concrete Technologies for vertical crack repair and patching of concrete at the outdoor handball courts located in Westgate Park.

Background: The handball courts at Westgate Park are the only outdoor courts located in a public park in central Ohio and draw users from throughout the region. The courts were originally constructed in 1972, however they have started to show signs of degradation in recent years. CRPD staff worked with a structural engineer in 2016 to conduct a structural investigation and report. Some of the recommendations from the report were performed earlier this year when reinforcing steel was added to the structure. This project provided additional improvements by repairing cracks and patching the vertical surfaces of the concrete structure thereby extending its useable life.

This modification is for an expanded scope of work to which will include additional concrete patching repairs to the roof of the handball court structure. These areas were not included in the engineer’s original estimate, but were discovered while prepping the roof for a waterproof sealer.

Total cost for the project will not exceed $132,380.00
