Memorandum

Attached for your review and approval, please find a resolution to approve a construction contract between the City of Ann Arbor and E.T. MacKenzie Company in the amount of $1,829,900.00 for the Stadium/Washtenaw Area Utility Improvements Project (RFP 22-15).

 

The scope of this project includes the following:

                     Replacement of watermain on Stadium Service Drive from Washtenaw Avenue to Stadium Boulevard, and resurfacing of the roadway (see attached map)

                     Replacement of watermain on Frieze Avenue from Brockman to the east end

                     Transfer of water services to a larger main on Winchell Drive from Brockman to 175 feet west of Hall Avenue

                     Road resurfacing of the above segments of Winchell and Frieze, as well as the segment of Brockman connecting them

                     Installation of new sidewalks where none currently exist on Winchell, Brockman, and Frieze within the project limits

                     Drainage structure replacements and/or repairs

                     Intermittent curb replacements

                     Installation of ADA compliant sidewalk ramps and new and/or improved crosswalks

 

The construction of the project is scheduled to begin in May 2022 and to be completed in early October 2022.

 

During the course of the project design, staff held a public meeting and conducted surveys to receive input on various project scope items such as the possibility of reconfiguring the intersection of Brockman and Winchell, and the filling of sidewalk gaps. The results of these efforts can be found summarized on the project website at: <https://www.a2gov.org/departments/engineering/Pages/Winchell-Frieze-and-Brockman-Sidewalk-Project.aspx>

 

Engineering staff supervised the creation of plans and contract documents and bid the project through the City’s Procurement Unit. On March 14, 2022, two proposals were received for this work. A selection committee comprised of Public Services staff reviewed the proposals and determined which bidder was the best value based on the following criteria (as laid out in ORD-21-41, adopted by Council on January 3, 2022):

 

                     Qualifications, Experience, & Accountability (20%)

                     Workplace Safety (20%)

                     Workforce Development (20%)

                     Social Equity & Sustainability (20%)

                     Schedule of Pricing/Cost (20%)

 

After reviewing and scoring the proposals, staff ranked the responding firms in the following order:

 

1.                     E.T. MacKenzie Company

2.                     Fonson Company

 

E.T. MacKenzie Company of Michigan received the highest score among the proposals reviewed by the selection committee. Therefore, staff recommends awarding the contract for this project to E.T. MacKenzie Company.

 

E.T. MacKenzie Company complies with the City’s Non-Discrimination and Living Wage ordinances.
