Background and Discussion:

This change in contract is the consolidation of several changes at two different sites as detailed hereinafter; (1) Chimney Rock: The quantity of 36-inch reinforced concrete pipe (RCP) is being changed because the project manager is correcting the breakdown of quantities between the two sites after determining the original breakdown was incorrect. A pay item is being added for gravel because District design determined that walls which have been added to the project require stone backfill along with the associated, incidental fabric and weepholes. The quantities of flexible base, geogrid, and asphaltic pavement are being increased because District design staff provided design details for parking lot reconstruction necessary to match the grade of the proposed roadway. (2) South Rice: A pay item is being added for a waterline offset because the engineer of record (EOR) and District design determined that an unknown, existing waterline must be relocated over the top of a new box culvert. A pay item for ground box removal is being added because City of Houston requested (and District design agreed) to eliminate a signal interconnect ground box that is in a location under the proposed pavement. A pay item is being added for manhole modifications because the EOR determined certain manholes must be constructed to a greater depth than was shown on the issued-for-construction plans. The quantity of 36-inch RCP is being changed because the PM is correcting the breakdown of quantities between the two sites after determining original breakdown was incorrect. The quantity of utility coordination is being increased because District design determined a new power pole is needed to alter the alignment of the overhead power lines to accommodate the installation of a proposed permanent traffic signal pole.

 

Expected Impact:

This RCA is required to complete the District construction contract under original or needed revised scope.  Timely execution 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.
