Title
Resolution to Extend the Service Agreement with Precision Concrete Cutting (Bid No. 4260) for the 2014 Ramp & Sidewalk Repair Project
Memorandum
Attached for your review and approval is a resolution to extend the Construction Services Agreement with Precision Concrete Cutting (Bid No. 4260) for the 2014 Sidewalk Cutting Project in the amount of $207,350.

The 2014 Sidewalk Cutting Project will consist of the repair of deficient sidewalks in approximately 20% of the City in 2014, as part of the third year of a 5-year program to perform maintenance on the City's entire sidewalk system.

The work of this agreement is the horizontal cutting of sidewalk slabs that have "vaulted" or "displaced" joints. By horizontally cutting sidewalk that is in otherwise good condition, full removal and replacement can be avoided.

The scope of the work is to cut vaulted sidewalk slabs where the vertical displacement is greater than 1/2" in height. Vertical displacements greater than 1" in height are considered to be too large for cutting and are generally planned to be removed and replaced with new sidewalk.

Precision Concrete Cutting was the sole bidder for the 2013 Sidewalk Cutting Project for which bids were opened on February 15, 2013, and was also the sub-contractor for the sidewalk cutting work on the 2012 project. Based on Precision Concrete Cutting's previous performance over the last two years, City staff is recommends that their service agreement be extended for one additional year as allowed for in the 2013 contract.

Precision Concrete Cutting received Human Rights approval on June 13, 2013. All employees of Precision Concrete Cutting, assigned to work on the project w...
