On January 10, 2011, City Council authorized staff to negotiate an agreement with Brown and Caldwell Corporation for the Lift Station Number 005 Replacement project. Pumping Station 005 is over 60 years old and underwent modifications in 1984; however, the mechanical equipment, the wet well and the electrical system components are well beyond the end of their expected service life. In addition, the capacity of the station is expected to increase significantly in the upcoming years. On October 3, 2011 City Council approved the first phase of the project which is now complete. We are now progressing to phase two, the final design. City staff requested Brown and Caldwell Corporation provide a scope of work and fee proposal for the final design services. The negotiated scope includes, design services ($488,953.50), permitting, cost estimating, public involvement ($146,190.30), Construction Services, bidding assistance, material testing, record drawings & start up ($199,942.20), which was acceptable to the City. The negotiated scope for the second phase with Brown & Caldwell is for a not to exceed fee of $835,086 including contingency.
