Resolution to Approve a Contract with Emergency Restoration Company for the Asbestos Abatement and Restoration of Floors 3, 4 and 5 in the Guy C. Larcom City Hall Building ($729,000.00) (ITB No. 4310) and to Appropriate Funds ($400,000.00) (8 Votes Required)
We recommend your approval of the attached resolution authorizing a contract in the amount of $729,000.00, with Emergency Restoration Company, for the removal of asbestos and the restoration of floors 3, 4 and 5 at City Hall. This is the first of two phases to complete the removal of asbestos containing materials in City Hall. The second phase will complete the removal on the 2nd floor in late Fall, 2014. At that point, all floors of City Hall will have been abated. Floors basement, 1, 6 and penthouse were abated in previous projects.
Funding for both phases of the proposed abatement project was included in the approved FY14 Capital Improvements Plan. The timing of the two phases of the project make it necessary to combine the work that was projected to occur over two fiscal years. This resolution amends the approved FY14 General Fund Budget to cover both phases of the project (including air monitoring, relocation and contingency). Funding for the abatement project in the proposed FY15 General Fund Budget would be eliminated resulting in no net change in expense over the two year budget cycle.
Phase one of this project involves the removal and disposal (as hazardous materials) of the lighting and ceilings on each floor; abatement of asbestos containing flooring and spray-on fireproofing above the ceilings; re-application of non-asbestos fireproofing materials; and the installation of new flooring and ceiling products. Air monitoring services were bid separately and are included later on this City Council agenda. Installation of new light fixtures is being funded through the City’s Energy Fund Loan Program as we improve the light levels and energy efficiency of the building. Th...Click here for full text
