Title
Resolution to Approve Three-Year Professional Services Agreements for Architectural Services for Parks & Recreation with Mitchell and Mouat Architects and Kohler Architects (NTE Annual $150,000.00 per firm)
Memorandum
Attached for your review and action is a resolution to approve Professional Services Agreements with architecture firms to provide design services for capital improvements and renovation projects within the Parks & Recreation system.

Budget/Fiscal Impact: Funding for services in FY 2019 and FY 2020 will be contingent upon City Council approval of the Parks Maintenance and Capital Improvements budget

Parks & Recreation Services often requires the services of consultants to perform
design and architecture work on multiple projects, including, but not limited to, renovations of existing buildings, design for new structures such as shelters and restrooms, evaluation of aging buildings, and restoration of historic structures.

Issuing RFPs and selecting consultants for each project individually is labor intensive for both the City and consultants. Pre-qualifying consultants with appropriate experience to perform the work saves valuable staff time and expedites project completion.

Pre-qualifying consultants was initially implemented nine years ago to create efficiencies and streamline the process of choosing consultants for a variety of Parks & Recreation design projects on an as-needed basis. It has proven to be very successful. Some of the projects that were completed under prior contracts with pre-qualified architecture firms include historic restoration projects at the Kempf House, West Park, and Island Park, reports and recommendations for renovations to the Cobblestone Farm barn and house and Leslie Science & Nature Center, roof replacements at Cobblestone Farm, design drawings for Bryant Community Center addition, Gallup Park Canoe Livery renovations, and upgrades to the locker rooms at Veterans Memorial Park pool and ice arena.
