Explanation

BACKGROUND: This legislation authorizes the Finance and Management Director to enter into a contract on behalf of the Office of Construction Management with Elford, Inc. for construction of Fire Station 16 which will be located at 1465 Oakland Park Avenue.
The ordinance authorizes a contract for the construction of a new 24,698 square foot fire station, which will replace the existing FS16 located at 1130 Weber Road that was constructed in 1952. The new FS16 will include additional health safety measures for first responders. The expected opening of this new Fire Station is the fourth quarter of 2020.

Company City AS1/FBE/MBE
Elford, Inc. Columbus EBOCC
Thomas & Marker Construction Bellefontaine EBOCC
Miles McClellan Construction Columbus N/A
Gutknecht Construction Co. Columbus EBOCC
R.W. Setterlin Building Co. Columbus EBOCC

Elford, Inc. submitted the lowest bid of $9,408,000.00. The Office of Construction Management recommends the bid award be made to the lowest, responsive and responsible bidder, Elford, Inc.

Elford, Inc. Contract Compliance No. 31-4371060, expiration date October 25, 2019.

Emergency action is requested to be able to complete site work prior and begin preliminary project work during construction months.
