This ordinance is to authorize the Director of the Recreation and Parks Department to enter into contract with TFR Construction for the Concrete Improvements 2019 project.

Background: Each year, Recreation and Parks allocates a portion of the Capital Improvements budget to the maintenance of existing and potentially needed new installations of hard surfaces. This particular contract focuses on the removal and replacement of existing concrete surfaces that are highly used by the public and include sidewalks, curbing, access ramps, and entry ways. By maintaining these surfaces, safe and easy access can be maintained to the parks and facilities. Areas for improvement are determined by input from members of the Community as well as Recreation and Parks staff.
At this time, priorities and improvement locations are being determined by staff.

Bids were advertised to our prequalified vendors, in accordance with City Code Section 329, on May 7, 2019 and received by the Recreation and Parks Department on May 21, 2019. Proposals were received from the following companies:

Company Status Amount
TFR Construction (MBE) $75,000.00
ProCon Professional Construction Services, Inc. (MAJ) $75,000.00

* Apparent low bidder was determined by unit pricing applied to estimated quantities.

After reviewing the proposal that were submitted, it was determined that TFR Construction was the most qualified firm to provide the services required for this project.

TFR Construction and all proposed subconsultants have met code requirements with respect to prequalification, pursuant to relevant sections of Columbus City Code Chapter 329.
