GOVERNMENT F   L   O   R   I   D A Interoffice  Memorandi March  16,2007 I .  CONSENT AGENDA COUNTY ADMINISTRATOR 10 TO: Mayor Richard T. Crotty and the Board of County Commissioners y M. Richardson, Manager, Purchasing and Contracts Division FROM: CONTACT:'  Richard D. Wilson, Manager, Utilities Engineering Division PHONE: (407) 254-9702 SUBJECT: Ratificationof Contract Y7-723 International Drive Rehabilitation Project (Westwood Boulevard to Little Lake BryanParkway) RECOMMENDATION: Ratification  of Contract Y7-723, International Drive Rehabilitation  Project (Westwood Boulevard to Little Lake Bryan Parkway), with Gibbs & Register,  Inc.,  for the base bid amount  of  $3,416,340  plus  the  additive  item  of  $1,552,500   for  a  total  amount  of $4,968,840. Funding  is  available  in  account  4420-038-1427-6340. The  Utilities Engineering Division concurs with this recommendation. PURPOSE: The project includes  the  construction  of 8,300  linear  feet  of  30-inch  PVC  force  main. The work included  in the additive item includes  slip lining  of the existing  8,300  linear feet of deteriorated 30-inch ductile iron pipe force main to allow it to be converted from a 30-inch force main to a 24-inch reclaimed water main.  This project is located in central Orange County. DISCUSSION: The 30-inch  ductile iron pipe on International Drive has  deteriorated  due to long-term exposure to hydrogen sulfide gas.  In the past three years there have been six force main failures  on  International  Drive between  Westwood Boulevard  and  Little  Lake Bryan Parkway.   These  failures have caused  significant soil  erosion  of the  surrounding  soils. This condition is likely to result in roadway failure that could result in serious impacts to public safety, health and the environment. Permanent repair was not possible due to the inability to  divert the flow off the line.   Consequently,  construction  of  a new  30-inch force will adequately address this condition.  Due to the urgent nature of this requirement, time   did   not   permit   the   normal  solicitation   and   award   process   for   the   work. Consequently,  this  project  was  approved  for  emergency  contracting  and  the  work  is ongoing with an estimated completion date of February 2008. On January 25, 2007, the County received five bids.  Gibbs & Register, Inc. was selected t o  provide the services.   Gibbs & Register, Inc. has a satisfactory record of performance and is considered responsible. Bids received: Gibbs & Register, Inc. Ackerman Construction Co., Inc. JMHC, Inc. Maxwell Contracting, Inc. Cathcart Contracting, Inc.
