1. MUNICIPAL CENTER AND PRIMARY SCHOOL ROOF CAPITAL PROJECTS
Mr. Cundiff stated that they went out to bid. George O’Neil of Gorman Richardson Lewis Architects (GRLA) joined the meeting. He reviewed the bids. The low bid was from Riverdale at $458,000. The lowest electrical sub-contractor bid was from Bright Light at $38,700. $35,000 was appropriated at Town Meeting. The scope of the project may need to be adjusted. It is clear to Mr. Cundiff that they will not be able to award Alternate 1.
Mr. O’Neil presented the references for Riverdale and Bright Light, which were generally positive. Mr. Fitzpatrick was concerned whether or not Riverdale would be able to adhere to Douglas’ 6 month timeframe. He would like a schedule agreed to before a contract is signed.
Mr. Cundiff will check with Town Counsel to see if there is a way to get a commitment on a specific schedule without a signed contract.
Mr. Cundiff presented a spreadsheet for the fee breakdown for construction vs. design. The total design fee under contract is close to $75,000. The remaining construction budget is $705,000. The low bid for HVAC is $458,000, leaving $247,323 for the municipal center roof and windows. Mr. Cundiff will check Mr. O’Neil’s numbers.
Ms. Mosczynski made a motion to recommend Riverdale Plumbing and Heating, Inc., contingent upon favorable pending references and compliance with the schedule of completion of the project by October 1, 2016. Ms. Brown seconded the motion. Vote: Unanimous.
