Explanation

1. BACKGROUND:  This legislation authorizes the Director of Public Utilities to enter into a professional engineering services agreement with Dynotec, Inc. for the Sewer Maintenance Operations Center (SMOC) Inventory Consolidation Project, CIP# 650505-100001.

 

The objective of this project is to consolidate the SMOC Inventory Control satellite store rooms into one centralized room in the space currently occupied by Inventory Control and a new area provided by another project in the former Police Property Room. The possibility of covered, outdoor storage in the casting yard will be evaluated. This project will also update the building’s card access readers to the standard found throughout other City buildings. These investigations will be compiled into a detailed design memorandum to guide the detailed design phase.

 

Upon the first planned renewal of this contract, the detailed design documents will be created based on the detailed design memorandum provided as part of the original contract. The second planned renewal of this contract will provide services during construction including submittal review and technical field representation.

 

Planning Area - 63 - South Side

 

 

2.  FUTURE MODIFICATION(S):  Two planned renewals (for Step 2 - Detailed Design and Step 3 - Services During Construction) are anticipated.
