August 21, 2019, FUSD Board of Education Meeting – Measure E Bond Program
Posted 8/26/19

Regarding meeting items related to facilities and construction, the Board:

 

  • Authorized staff to amend the agreement with Construction Testing Services, Inc. (CTS) by $22,746 to provide material testing and special inspection services for the new the 10-classroom building at Washington High School. The total contract amount is now $95,000. When the initial Request for Proposal was sent for material testing and inspection services, the full scope of the design build project had not been fully identified. Therefore, the original agreement with CTS did not include additional welding inspection services necessary to complete the project. CTS has now provided a proposal for additional welding inspection services. The cost of this work is within the budget for the project.

 

  • Received a presentation on the design of theater improvements at Washington High School, which was authorized the Board at its June 26, 2019 meeting. Project design is complete and has been submitted to the Division of the State Architect. Staff described add alternates that have been developed, and reviewed next steps for the project.

 

  • Authorized staff to amend the agreement with architects LPA, Inc. in the amount of $553,630 (inclusive of a 5-percent contingency) for the new construction and modernization project at Centerville Middle School. The total contract amount is now $4,113,961. The cost of this work is within the budget for the project. LPA is preparing the design for the new construction and modernization project at Centerville in alignment with Option 2D as directed by the Board of Trustees on June 26, 2019. The selection of option 2D increased the project scope and budget and LPA has provided a corresponding proposal. This increased architectural fee was accounted for in the option 2D budget increase presented on June 26.

 

  • Authorized staff to amend the agreement with Infinity Communications and Consulting in the amount $135,000 for the new Voice over IP (VoIP) telephone, clock, bell, and public address system. The total contract amount is now $631,677. In order to ensure consistency and parity among the District’s sites, Infinity will survey the sites and provide a preliminary design and construction estimate for evaluation. Upon completion of the design, the District will publicly bid the project and submit the costs to the Board for approval at a future date. A future change order will be brought to the Board for the contract administration phase of the Infinity contract. The VoIP/Clock/Bell/Speaker upgrade project is scheduled to be fully complete by January 2020.

 

  • Authorized staff to execute final deductive change order with Western Water Features, Inc. and file a notice of completion for the pool replacement project at Mission San Jose High School. This will return $406,177 to be used for Measure E Bond projects.
