Request for approval of change in contract No. 9 with James Construction Group, LLC, for the Brays Bayou Federal Flood Control Project, resulting in an increase of $242,634. (Brays Bayou Watershed, Bond ID C-11, Project ID D100-00-00-B047, Job No. 19/0365, Precincts 1, 2, and 3).

Background and Discussion:

This change in contract is the consolidation of several changes at four different sites as detailed hereinafter; (1) Buffalo Speedway items are adjusted for additional scope of work (a) for channel lining work which was required, but was not accounted for in the bid quantities, (b) for channel lining work required to protect AT&T aerial crossing structure which was partially exposed when the channel slopes were graded in accordance with the plans, (c) an additional waterline gate valve. These adjustments result in a net increase of $129,504.10 and no additional days. (2) Lawndale items are adjusted (a) to reconcile final measured quantities which exceed the bid quantities (b) for additional work to extend rails and adjust manholes as determined during the Substantial Completion process. These adjustments result in an increase of $50,932.42 and no additional days. (3) Almeda items are adjusted (a) to account for revisions to the Traffic Control Plans to improve pedestrian detours (b) to provide drainage during construction, (c) to provide additional street name text panels on the bridge. These adjustments result in an increase of $62,037.30 and no additional days. (4) South 75th Street item is adjusted to account for additional Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plan scope not shown in the plans which results in an increase of $160.00 and no additional days.

 

Expected Impact:

This RCA is required to complete the District construction contract under original or needed revised scope. Timely executions is appreciated in order to mitigate any potential delays from the contractor.

 

Alternative Options:

This is an active construction contract, so there are not many alternatives to approving a change order other than cancelling the contract which is not recommended as doing so would substantially delay the remaining work in the construction contract.
