On March 25, 2014 (M&C C-26731) the City Council authorized an Engineering Agreement with HDR Engineering, Inc., in the amount of $502,532.00 for the Marine Creek Drainage Basin Parallel Interceptor Improvements at various locations within the Marine Creek Drainage Basin. The agreement was subsequently revised by Amendment No.1 in the amount of $38,420.00 administratively authorized September 22, 2014.
Amendment No. 2 will provide for the design of a 24 - inch sanitary sewer interceptor beginning at a sanitary sewer manhole at Huffines Blvd and Texas Shiner Drive and will follow the existing easement to the Boat Club Road / Robertson Road intersection. The proposed scope of work includes design for junction structures and system interconnections of existing sanitary sewer mains, environmental assessment coordination with other agencies and geotechnical investigation.
HDR Engineering, Inc. proposes to perform the necessary additional work for a lump sum fee of $317,004.00. Staff considers this fee to be fair and reasonable for the scope of services proposed.
In addition to the amendment amount $203,000.00 is required for project management, real property acquisition, utility coordination and material testing.
Engineering for the Marine Creek Drainage Basin Parallel Interceptor Improvement Project is one component of the overall project that includes project management, easement acquisition, utility coordination, material testing, inspection, construction and contingencies. The overall project budget is $15,833,139.00. This project is part of the Water Department's Sanitary Sewer Overflow Initiative Program.
This project will have no impact on the Water Department's operating budget when complete. Design for this project is expected to be completed by September 2017 with construction commencing in December 2017 and ending in November 2018.
MWBE OFFICE: HDR Engineering, Inc. is in compliance with the City's BDE Ordinance by committing to an additional 37 percent SBE participation on this Amendment No.2.
