Resolution to Award a Construction Contract to SAK Construction, LLC ($1,048,468.00, Bid No. ITB-4704) for the 2022 Sewer Lining Project
Memorandum
Attached for your review and approval is a resolution to award a contract to SAK Construction, LLC., in the amount of $1,048,468.00, for the 2022 Sewer Lining Project.

This project includes lining approximately 5,700 feet of sanitary sewer at multiple locations throughout the City, as well as contingencies to repair segments of pipe where lining is not feasible. In addition, the project will line 25 sanitary sewer manholes to aid in limiting stormwater infiltration into the sanitary sewer system. 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.

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 May 2022.

The project was sent out for bid in December 2021 (ITB-4704) under the previous Responsible Contractor Policy (which predated Ordinance 21-41). In response to the Invitation to Bid, four (4) bids were received on February 1, 2022. The lowest responsible bidder was SAK Construction, LLC with a bid of $3,215,239.00.

Thus, to bring the total project cost within the approved budget, quantities of specific pay items were reduced and bid unit prices applied to the revised scope of work resulting in a proposed contract amount of $1,048,468.00 which is agreeable to the bidder.

SAK Construction, LLC complies with the requirements of the non-discrimination and living wage or...
