Title
Resolution to Award a Construction Contract IPR Great Lakes, LLC ($1,399,976.50, Bid No. ITB-4540) for the 2018 Sanitary Sewer Lining Project
Memorandum
Attached for your review and approval is a resolution to award and enter into a contract to IPR Great Lakes, LLC, in the amount of $1,399,976.50, for the 2018 Sanitary Sewer Lining Project.

The project for this contract includes lining approximately 45,000 feet of sanitary sewer, at 25 locations throughout the City as well as contingencies to repair or maintain segments of pipe where lining is not feasible. The 25 locations are combined into one contract for efficiency and cost savings. The project locations were identified by City staff as in critical 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.

In response to the Invitation to Bid (ITB-4540), three (3) bids were received on Wednesday, May 30, 2018. The low bid from IPR Great Lakes, LLC of $1,399,976.50 is approximately $800,000.00 under the Engineer's Estimate.

IPR Great Lakes, LLC is in compliance with the requirements of the City's Non-Discrimination and Living Wage ordinances.

The FY 2018-2023 Capital Improvements Plan (CIP) includes the 2018 Sanitary Sewer Lining Project (UT-SN-14-06). Funding for the project is included in the approved Sewage Disposal System capital budget.
