Item No: 4.C.3.
Meeting Date: March 25, 2013
From: Mike Thornton, Purchasing Manager for
DC Maudlin, Acting Director Public Works
Subject: Resolution authorizing execution of Amendment One extending the performance period on the Leesburg-Wildwood Trail.
Staff recommends approval of the resolution authorizing execution of Amendment One to an existing Agreement with Suncoast Paving extending the performance period by 26 days.
The City executed an Agreement with Suncoast Paving, Inc. for construction services to construct the Leesburg-Wildwood Trail. The Agreement provided for 170 days to complete construction of the trail.
The contractor has advised project management personnel advised their 170 day performance period is not adequate due to circumstances beyond their control. The circumstances are generally related to rework caused by vandalism, structure redesign due to changes in building code and unknown site conditions not detailed in the engineering drawings.
The specific items that caused delay are detailed below:
The contracted Construction Engineering and Inspection (CEI) management firm (DRMP, Inc.) for this project, and City project management staff recommend allowing 26 additional calendar days for performance of the project. Also, the grant funding agency (FDOT) indicated an extension will be acceptable should the City approve the extension.
This Amendment is a no charge contract change order. There will be no additional cost added to the contract as a result of this Amendment.
1. Approve the resolution authorizing execution of Amendment One with Suncoast Paving, Inc.; or
2. Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate
There is no additional cost to the City as a result of this Amendment.
