Explanation
BACKGROUND: This legislation authorizes the Finance and Management Director to enter into a contract on behalf of the Office of Construction Management with The Righter Company for elevator modernization at 1120 Morse Road.
This project consists of modernization of one hydraulic elevator and its support spaces in 1120 Morse Road. Work includes replacement of equipment, controls and other components ensuring that the elevator and related systems are up to current elevator code. Additionally, contingency funds have been included to upgrade the office space impacted by the construction of the new elevator machine room.
Formal bids were solicited and the City received four (4) bids (0 FBE, 0 MBE) on January 9, 2020 as follows:

Company City Bid Amount AS1/FBE/MBE
2K General Company . Delaware $389,130.00 EBOCC
The Righter Company, Inc. Columbus $403,290.00 EBOCC
R.W. Setterlin Building Company Columbus $408,000.00 EBOCC
Altman General Contractors Columbus $425,000.00 EBOCC

After evaluation of the bids, it was determined that the lowest bidder, 2K General Company did not submit an environmentally preferable bid and is non-compliant with Columbus City Code Section 329.17. The Righter Company, Inc. is both responsive and responsible and therefore the Department of Finance and Management recommends that the contract be awarded to The Righter Company, Inc.

The Righter Company Contract Compliance No. 31-0889208, expiration date December 17, 2021.

Emergency action is requested so that renovations can begin as quickly as possible to ensure that elevators remain compliant with applicable codes.

Fiscal Impact: This legislation authorizes an expenditure of $403,290.00 from the Safety Voted Bond Fund with The Righter Company, Inc. for services related to elevator modernization at 1120 Morse Road facility. These funds are budgeted within the Safety Voted Bond Fund.
