Palm Bay Elementary

Palm Bay Elementary Chiller and Security Fencing and Access Controls

PROJECT OVERVIEW   
The project under construction includes the chiller replacement. Additional mechanical system renewal and fire alarm system renew is being designed based on the Attachment F funded report.
 
PROJECT STATUS
  

Palm Bay Elementary School is the tenth highest priority on the sales surtax project list based on the priority evaluation system developed in conjunction with the sales surtax referendum.

Because of the poor condition of the HVAC chiller unit and the roof membrane, a project was already planned for summer 2015 construction with budgeted capital funds. A construction management contract with Wharton Smith, Inc. was approved by the School Board on February 10, 2015 in an amount not to exceed $996,028. Part of this project (the chiller unit and related components) is included on the Attachment F Sales Surtax Funded Detail Report (Exhibit 1). The project, currently under construction, includes the following categories with their budgeted amounts:

  52 04-12 Central Mechanical Plant Renewal (chiller)   $501,348
  52 05 Cooling and Heating Control System Renewal¹   $166,775
         
  52 16 Air Supply and Exhaust System Renewal¹   $29,672
         
    Total:   $697,795

1The building automation system (component) and exhaust fans (component) will be partially addressed with the current construction project. They are also included in the design project.

The portion of the construction purchase order relating to the mechanical system that is included on Attachment F will be closed and reissued with sales tax after July 15, 2015. Based on a proration of the costs between the roof and the mechanical system components of the GMP, up to an estimated $622,109 of the $996,028 will be funded through the sales surtax.

Based on the Attachment F list, the District issued a purchase order to OCI Associates, Inc. for design of most of the remaining Facility Renewal items on the list. The design proposal was approved by the School Board on May 12, 2015 and is funded by the sales surtax. The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) code deficiencies are being addressed separately as these are primarily exterior parking and loading type of issues. The relocatable covered walkways are planned for the last year of the sales surtax program. The design contract includes the following categories as they are budgeted in Attachment F:

         
  51 03 Fire Alarm System Renewal   $120,012
  52 05 Cooling and Heating Controls System Renewal (partial)²   $166,755
  52 06 Air Conditioning and Air Distribution System Renewal   $648,683
  52 10 Building Water and Sanitary Piping System Renewal   $80,619
         
    Total:   $1,045,761

2The building automation system (component 5205-19) and exhaust fans (component 5216-71) will be partially addressed with the current construction project. They are also included in the design project. The amounts shown above are the full amounts budgeted that will be partially expended with the current construction contract.

 

The design engineer has noted that the underground chilled water piping system needs to be replaced due to failures and leaks. This is included in the scope of the design services and will likely be a contingency item when construction is planned for the remainder of the project.

The Educational Technology projects have not yet started.

A not-to-exceed design services contract, in the amount of $7,495, has been issued to Harvard Jolly for the District Security projects. This work covers the following categories on Attachment F Sales Surtax Funded Detail Report:

         
   66 01 Perimeter/Entry Fencing and Gates   $36,541
         
  66 02 Building Access Security Equipment   $24,556
         
    Total:   $61,007
         
The design fee for the fencing and building access control includes field review and coordination with district security staff and the school principal. The architect will also coordinate with other district staff to ensure that security is not compromising egress safety. The design is focused on providing menu of access control projects that can be implemented now with the available sales surtax and is easily expandable as additional funding becomes available. The design is funded with sales surtax.

Project management, administrative and permitting staff time will be charged to the sales surtax fund. These costs have not been posted to the financial system as of June 5, 2015, but will be included on the next report to the ICOC.
