DISCUSSION:

The purpose of this Mayor and Council Communication (M&C) is to accept funding in the amount of $24,733.59 from Dunaway Associates, LP, for improvements to Mosier Valley Park.

On January 24, 2017, City Council authorized the execution of a construction contract with Denco Construction Services Corp. (M&C C-28086) for Mosier Valley Park improvements.

On May 30, 2018, the City of Fort Worth (City), Dunaway Associates, LP, (Consultant) and Denco Construction Services Corp. (Contractor) met to discuss the cause of cracking on the new concrete slab which was installed by the Contractor at Mosier Valley Park. The possible causes included:  construction methods (lack of vibration during installation, stripping concrete forms within 24 hours of installation); and design issues including the fact that the layout plan did not include control joints or expansion joints, and there was no designed separation between the existing slab and new slab such as sand or another type of barrier.

While there was no resolution as to the absolute cause of the cracking, the City, the Consultant and the Contractor agreed to share the cost of repair or replacement. The three parties explored several options to address the cracking including:  filling the cracks and sealing the surface, sandblast treatment of the surface, and removal and replacement of the new slab. Ultimately, it was determined that the best course of action is to remove and replace the slab.

On July 13, 2018, the Contractor provided a quote of $74,200.79 to remove and replace the new concrete slab (6,600 SF). Additionally, the aforementioned price includes a barrier separation from the existing concrete, and expansion and control jointing. This cost divided equally between the City, the Consultant and the Contractor amounts to $24,733.59 each. While this M&C appropriates the contribution from the Consultant, the Contractor's contribution will be reflected in a Change Order.

On August 17, 2018, after all parties reviewed the proposal it was agreed upon to proceed with the proposal and complete the project with all parties sharing one-third of the quote.

Mosier Valley Park is located in COUNCIL DISTRICT 5.

This M&C does not request approval of a contract with a business entity.

 
FISCAL INFORMATION/CERTIFICATION:
