Title

Resolution to Approve Amendment No. 1 to the Professional Services Agreement with Stantec Consulting Michigan, Inc. for Construction Inspection Services (up to $450,000.00)

Memorandum

Attached for your review and approval is a resolution to authorize Amendment No. 1 to the Professional Services Agreement with Stantec Consulting Michigan, Inc. (Stantec) for Construction Inspection Services

 

The Engineering Unit provides inspection for construction of capital projects and private development projects within City rights-of-way. Inspectors’ tasks include oversight of contractor activities, enforcement of construction standards, and measurement of pay-item quantities. These tasks are critical to the success of any construction project.

 

Due to fluctuation of construction activity throughout the year (lighter in the winter and heavier in the summer), the level of staffing in the Engineering Unit often requires supplementation to provide sufficient inspections.

 

The amount of work performed on private development projects in the current construction season has been significantly higher than anticipated. The amount of capital and private work remaining in the current construction projects, as well as the number of anticipated projects to occur in the remainder of the fiscal year, requires an increase in the dollar amount of this contract to adequately provide construction inspection for all projects.

 

Stantec is in compliance with the requirements of the City’s Non-Discrimination and Living Wage ordinances.

 

Budget/Fiscal Impact

The services provided by these consultants will be paid for within approved project budgets and annual operating budgets as appropriate. Costs for inspection on private development projects are recouped through fees charged to developers.
