Explanation

 

BACKGROUND:  This legislation authorizes the Director of Public Utilities to enter into a construction contract with R.W. Setterlin Building Co. for the Watershed Facilities Improvements Project; in an amount up to $1,668,650.00; for Division of Water Capital Improvements Project No. 690525-100000, Contract No. 2177.

 

Funds in the amount of $2,000.00 will also be encumbered with the Department of Public Service for Prevailing Wage services.

 

Work consists of replacement of the maintenance workshop and erection of a storage bay for materials at Griggs Watershed Facility; mechanical/HVAC improvements; replacement of the lift station, removal of the abandoned septic tank at the Hoover Watershed Facility, miscellaneous site, structural, architectural, and associated Access control upgrades at both facilities, and other such work as may be necessary to complete the contract, in accordance with the plans and specifications set forth in the Invitation For Bid.

 

The Community Planning Area for this project is “99 - Citywide” since work services multiple community planning areas.

 

ECONOMIC IMPACT/ADVANTAGES; COMMUNITY OUTREACH; PROJECT DEVELOPMENT; ENVIRONMENTAL FACTORS/ADVANTAGES OF PROJECT:  The targeted facilities have various issues due to age, condition, and layout.  Some were re-purposed from residential structures, and their layout does not support their current use relative to operational, environmental, safety, and ADA perspectives. 

 

Occasional improvements are necessary to reduce excessive maintenance costs and extend the life of these facilities.  Upgrades and best practices to the administrative and field office facilities for Watershed Management were evaluated and considered for improvement. These improvements have positive environmental impacts and potential energy savings by improving the building envelopes, improving reliability of building mechanical systems and bringing facilities up to code, and addressing secure access for Watershed facilities.  The majority of the work will occur within areas that are not accessible to the public, so no community outreach is anticipated.
