Explanation

1.  BACKGROUND

This ordinance authorizes the Director of Public Service to modify and increase an existing contract with Double Z Construction Company for the King Lincoln District - Long Street, Garfield Avenue, Monroe Avenue and Talmadge Street project (P441770-100000, the “Streetscape Improvements”) project in an amount up to $312,380.00.

Ordinance 0404-2021 authorized the Director of Public Service to enter into a contract with Double Z Construction Company for the construction of the King Lincoln District - Long Street, Garfield Avenue, Monroe Avenue and Talmadge Street project and to provide for construction administration and inspection services.

 

The work performed to date for this project consists of the underground Division of Power and Joint communication duct bank through Long St, Garfield, Talmadge and Monroe, grading for the sidewalk that abuts to the Borror development and roadway grading in the Phase 1 Maintenance of Traffic sequence all have been completed.

 

The work for modification 1 will consist of an additional duct vault and 1,888 accumulative feet of additional duct bank conduit as required, and other such work as may be necessary to complete the contract. 

 

The original contract amount, no inspection:              $3,275,108.84                      (PO265380, Ord. 0404-2021)                         

The total of Modification No. 1, no inspection:           $  312,380.00                          (This Ordinance)

The contract amount including all modifications:        $3,587,488.84

 

Searches in the System for Award Management (Federal) and the Findings for Recovery list (State) produced no findings against Double Z Construction Company.

 

2.  UNPLANNED MODIFICATION

This is an unplanned modification that is necessary due to duct bank revisions that were not included in the original design as it is being presented by the City Design team as a plan revision. The plan revision is significant in nature and was not fully contemplated during the design phase. Changes to the duct bank infrastructure was revised following the award of the contract.  It was deemed to be more cost efficient to modify the existing contract than to bid this part of the work.

 

3.  CONTRACT COMPLIANCE

The contract compliance number for Double Z Construction Company is CC005966 and expired 06/10/2021.  The vendor will be contract compliant by the time Council reads the ordinance.
