Title
Resolution to Approve a Contract with Allied Building Service Inc., for the Replacement of the Emergency Generator in Fire Station #1 ($268,800.00)
Memorandum
We recommend your approval of the attached resolution authorizing a contract in the amount of $268,800.00 with Allied Building Service Inc., for the replacement of the emergency generator at Fire Station #1. The project involves the removal of the existing diesel generator and fuel tank located in the basement, reinforcement of the structural steel on the roof, supply and installation of new rooftop mounted natural gas generator, new automatic transfer switch, new natural gas supply line, all necessary connections and controls to operate the emergency power supply in the building.

The building currently has two generators. A new natural gas powered generator was installed when central dispatch was consolidated in Fire Station #1. This unit, and the related central dispatch operations, will not be impacted by this project. The second generator is a diesel-powered generator of unknown age. This generator only powers limited operations within the building. The exhaust from the diesel generator also causes air quality issues within central dispatch offices when it operates. The new natural gas powered generator will provide full power to all fire related operations at Fire Station #1 and address the interior air quality issues

The project was bid under ITB-4516 and bids were received from four contractors on October 31, 2017. Staff evaluated the bids and determined that the prices were competitive and recommends that Allied Building Service Inc., as the lowest responsible bidder, be awarded the contract.
