Agenda Item #48

FS-7 Gove Elementary School Project Modifications


This Project Modification contains the following items:

Item #1

  • Change Order Proposal Request (COPR) #2 in the amount of $110,030
  • Description:  Extend the Glades Utility Authority 10" diameter water main approximately 882 feet along the south side of Ave. G from NW corner to NE corner of the new Gove ES site. 
  • Cause:  Unforeseen Condition
  • Justification:  The information provided by Glades Utility Authority to the Architect showed an existing water line running on the north side of Ave G the entire length of our new school site.  The 100% Construction Documents called for the contractor to do a road cut across Ave. G and tie into this existing line.  This was how the project was bid.  The existing water line actually turns north at the NW corner of our property.  Therefore, the water line needs to be extended along the south side of Ave G along the entire length of our north property line.

Item 2

  • COPR #3 for the addition of 20 non-compensable calendar days.
  • Description:  Extend the Substantial Completion date by 20 calendar days from May 31, 2013 to June 20, 2013.  Extend the Final Completion date by 20 non-compensable calendar days from August 29, 2013 to September 18, 2013.
  • Cause: Unforeseen Condition
  • Justification:  The Substantial Completion and Final Completion dates because of adverse weather conditions.  The number of rain days for several thirty day periods exceeded the average for the same 30 day periods for the previous 10 years by 20 calendar days.  Per sections 4.4.2 and 8.3.1 of the General Conditions of the Construction Management at Risk Agreement, the Construction Manager is entitled to be compensated for this delay.


I recommend the School Board approve Project Modifications for 20 non-compensable calendar days and an increase of $110,030 to Hedrick Brothers Construction Company, Inc. for the Gove Elementary School Modernization Project #1241-8437, and authorize the Chairman and Superintendent to finalize and execute all related contract documents.
