Resolution to Approve a Construction Contract with A.Z. Shmina, Inc. for the Fire Station #1 Renovation Project (RFP# 22-16) ($1,297,000.00)
We recommend your approval of the attached resolution authorizing a construction contract in the amount of $1,297,000.00, with A.Z. Shmina, Inc. for interior renovations at Fire Station #1.

A large portion of area being renovated under this project was occupied by the Washtenaw County Sheriff's Office Metro Dispatch Center prior to their relocation from the site in February 2022. This project will allow for the relocation of the Fire Prevention Bureau to Station #1 from their current offices at the former Station #2, allowing that property to be repurposed. The renovation project includes reconfiguring the exterior entrance to comply with Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) accessibility; providing ADA accessible offices for fire prevention, emergency management, and fire administration; private, gender-inclusive dormitory rooms for firefighters; a new fire alarm system for the entire building; a fire suppression system for the dormitory area; and a secure ballot processing and storage area for the City Clerk's Office.

A request for proposals was solicited under RFP# 22-16, and two bids were received on March 22, 2022. This RFP was issued under the new purchasing ordinance: Sec 1:314(9) of the City Code. A.Z.

Shmina be awarded the contract. Please see attached scoring breakdown for more details.

If approved, construction would commence June 20, 2022 with a project completion date of December 17, 2022.

Budget/Fiscal Impact: Funding is available for this project in the approved General Capital Fund.
