Resolution to Approve a Construction Contract with SAK Construction, LLC for the 2023 Sewer Lining Project ($2,989,659.00, RFP 23-41)
Attached for your review and approval is a resolution to approve a construction contract with SAK Construction, LLC, in the amount of $2,989,659.00, for the 2023 Sewer Lining Project.

This project includes lining approximately 23,800 feet of sanitary and storm sewer at multiple locations throughout the City, as well as contingencies to repair or maintain segments of pipe where lining is not feasible. In addition, the project will line 50 sanitary sewer manholes to aid in limiting stormwater infiltration into the sanitary sewer system. The project locations were identified by City staff as in need of repair.

Lining is a "trenchless" technology that enables pipe repair or maintenance without disturbing the surface above. During lining, new material is pumped into the existing pipe, creating a new pipe inside the existing one. The process is not only cost effective but eliminates the need for extensive excavation and lengthy traffic control measures, thereby minimizing traffic disruption. The project is expected to begin in December 2023.

Engineering staff supervised the creation of plans and contract documents and bid the project through the City's Procurement Unit. On September 7, 2023, three proposals were received for this work. A selection committee comprised of Public Services staff reviewed the proposals and determined which proposal was the Best Value based on the criteria in ORD-21-41:

* Qualifications, Experience, & Accountability (20%)
* Workplace Safety (20%)
* Workforce Development (20%)
* Social Equity & Sustainability (20%)
* Schedule of Pricing/Cost (20%)
