Church St. Streetscape, West Phase, Additional Services for WBQ Design & Engineering, Inc.

On October 16, 2006, City Council approved an interlocal agreement (Local Agency Project - LAP) with the Florida Department of Transportation for the City to receive funding for the design and construction of streetscape improvements for Church Street between Terry Avenue and Tampa Avenue. On July 9, 2007, Council approved the base contract with WBQ Design & Engineering, Inc. to provide professional engineering and landscaping services for the Church Street Streetscape project. In the original authorization WBQ's scope of services included review of construction documents, certification of permits, and insuring that design intent was met. Recently, staff requested WBQ redesign the "Plaza" area of Church Street Right of Way adjacent to the Citrus Bowl to reduce overall construction costs.  City staff has negotiated an additional service change order with WBQ for these services as well as additional construction assistance and accepts their fee proposal for $124,474.53.
This project is partially funded through FDOT and is therefore governed by the Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) Program.  This additional service includes 64% DBE participation.

Fiscal & Efficiency Data:
Funding is available through existing project funds #1275024 approved at BRC on February 5, 2013.  In addition, the Citrus Bowl Refurbishment project will contribute $75,000 for design fee funding for this change order.  City staff has established project #1275024 to track distribution of the approved funding for the West Phase Construction.

Recommended Action:
Recommend approval of Service Authorization V for professional services with WBQ, as described above, for a not to exceed amount of $124,474.53 and authorize the Director of Public Works to approve changes up to an aggregate amount of 10% of the contract amount. Authorize the Mayor and City Clerk to execute the authorization subject to the review and approval of the Office of Legal Affairs.
