(City Project No. 100840)

 
DISCUSSION:

On June 16, 2017, Mayor and Council Communication (M&C C-28248) the City Council authorized a contract with S.J. Louis Construction of Texas, Ltd., in the amount of $1,366,498.00 for Northside II 48-inch water main trench backfill replacement and pavement repair.

The original project provided for the removal and replacement (with cementitious flowable fill material) of the existing native material backfill for the installed 48-inch diameter water main located on High School Drive from Timberland Boulevard to north of Ridgeview Circle.

Change Order No. 1 will provide compensation for increased pay item quantities for the removal of existing backfill and replacement with flowable fill material beyond the trench width, due to actual field conditions that were encountered during construction. The original design provided for a trench width of seven feet to remove unstable backfill material and replace it with cementitious flowable fill. However, during construction, it was necessary to remove and replace additional material than anticipated to prevent unstable material from collapsing into the seven feet trench from both sides.

The project is estimated to be completed by the end of September 2017.

This project will have no impact on the Water Department's Operating Budget when complete.

M/WBE OFFICE - S.J. Louis Construction of Texas, Ltd., agrees to maintain its initial MBE commitment of eight percent that it made on the original contract and extend and maintain that same SBE commitment eight percent to this first change. Therefore S.J. Louis Construction of Texas, Ltd., remains in compliance with the City's MDE Ordinance and attests its commitment by its signature on the Acceptance of Previous MBE Commitment form executed by an authorized representative of its company.

The project is located in COUNCIL DISTRICT 7.
