Executive Summary

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

 

Recommendation to accept a proposal from AECOM Technical Services, Inc., to provide construction engineering and inspection services under Agreement # 14-6345, and authorize the issuance of a purchase order in the amount of $291,614, for the upcoming Phase 2 construction of the 24” Livingston Road Force Main, which is located within the Wastewater Basin 305 Program.

 

 

OBJECTIVE: To provide construction engineering and inspection services for the construction of 8,800 ft of 24” force main to be constructed along Livingston Road and the rehabilitation of pump station 110.00.

 

CONSIDERATIONSThe proposed scope of work under Project Number 72009 (see Attachment 1), the “Western Interconnect,” is consistent with the FY2020 Budget approved by the Board of County Commissioners on September 19, 2019.

On July 9, 2019 (Agenda Item 11.F), the Board approved Bid No. 19-7568 (see Attachment 2) to Metro Equipment Services, Inc., for the construction of 8,800 ft of 24” force main on Livingston Road, and the rehabilitation of pump station 110.00 for $3,293,020.  The construction contract allows a performance period of 300 days. During this time frame, the Public Utilities Department needs an assigned construction engineering inspector to oversee the construction of these capital improvements.

On July 7, 2015 (Agenda Item 16.C.6), the Board approved Agreement # 14-6345 with AECOM Technical Services, Inc. (see Attachment 4), to provide Construction, Engineering, and Inspection Services (CEI) as part of the Wastewater Basin 305 Program.  The CEI services identified in AECOM’S proposal for the Livingston Road force main Western Interconnect project are within the Basin 305 scope of work defined on page six in the CCNA Solicitation for Agreement # 14-6345 (see Attachment 3).

AECOM’s proposal provides a full-time engineering inspector at the construction site to coordinate, inspect and certify that construction activities are built in accordance with the permitted plans. The proposal’s cost of $291,614 is approximately 8.9% of the construction costs. Based on this performance measure, along with the projected unit costs for the 300-day construction period, the proposal pricing is reasonable.

 

FISCAL IMPACTThe source of funding is Wastewater User Fees, Fund (414). The project is expected to be completed in the summer of 2020.

 

LEGAL CONSIDERATIONSThis item is approved as to form and legality, and requires majority vote for Board approval.-SRT

 

GROWTH MANAGEMENT IMPACTThis project is consistent with and furthers the goals, objectives, and policies of the Growth Management Plan to ensure the adequacy and availability of viable public facilities.

 

RECOMMENDATIONThat the Board of County Commissioners, Ex-officio the Governing Board of the Collier County Water-Sewer District, accept AECOM Technical Services, Inc.’s proposal to provide construction engineering and inspection services under Agreement # 14-6345, and authorize the issuance of a purchase order in the amount of $291,614, for the upcoming Phase 2 construction of the 24” Livingston Road Force Main, which is located within the Wastewater Basin 305 Program.
