A RESOLUTION OF THE MAYOR AND CITY COMMISSION OF THE CITY OF
MIAMI BEACH, FLORIDA, APPROVING AND AUTHORIZING THE CITY
MANAGER TO NEGOTIATE AND EXECUTE CHANGE ORDER NO. 1 TO THE
CONSTRUCTION CONTRACT BETWEEN THE CITY OF MIAMI BEACH,
FLORIDA AND J.R.T. CONSTRUCTION CO., FOR CONSTRUCTION SERVICES
AT MIDDLE BEACH RECREATIONAL CORRIDOR PHASE Ill PROJECT, TO
INCLUDE ADDITIONAL CONSTRUCTION SERVICES ASSOCIATED WITH THE
INSTALLATION OF INFRASTRUCTURE FOR SECURITY CAMERAS
INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE SUPPLY AND INSTALLATION OF
HANDHOLES, ELECTRICAL SERVICE PANELS AND CAMERA POLES,
RESULTING IN AN INCREASE OF $382,548.15 WHICH INCLUDES AN
INCREASE IN THE OWNER'S CONTINGENCY BY THE AMOUNT OF $34,777.10,
OR 10% OF THE CHANGE ORDER AMOUNT, INCREASING THE TOTAL VALUE
OF THE CONTRACT TO $9,824,349.75, AND FURTHER PROVIDING THE
CONTRACTOR A TIME EXTENSION OF SIXTY (60) CALENDAR DAYS TO
ACCOMMODATE THE CHANGE IN SCOPE.
On July 31, 2019, the City Commission awarded the contract in the amount of $9,441,801.60 for construction services for the Middle Beach Recreational Corridor Phase III to J.R.T. Construction Co. (Contractor) pursuant to ITB2019-002-DF. Construction began on November 18, 2019 and is scheduled for completion in Spring of 2021.
This project consists of the construction of an on-grade ADA compliant pedestrian paver walkway, with bollard lights, landscaping and irrigation. The path will run north from approximately 24th Street to 46th Street. Exotic dune vegetation will be removed and replaced with dune enhancements such as native dune vegetation species and beach compatible dune fill will be provided for the landscaping. The proposed path lighting will meet Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission’s marine turtle nesting requirements.
In an effort to provide increased security along the beachwalk, and in order to minimize impact to newly installed improvements, the Miami Beach Police Department (MBPD) has requested construction of the necessary infrastructure which will allow for the future installation of security cameras along the path. MBPD hired a consultant to design the security camera infrastructure. Initially the design of the security cameras underground conduits was provided by MBPD. City staff requested that the Contractor provide a proposal to supply and install the conduits. In order to avoid any delays to the MBRC3 project, and incur any additional costs for demolition and restoration during the future security cameras improvements, city staff and the project engineer reviewed the proposal submitted by the contractor in the amount of $143,295.33 and approved the work under the project contingency.
While the empty conduit was being installed, MBPD was able to finalize the security camera design. J.R.T. Construction Co was then able to provide a proposal (Exhibit A) for the remaining infrastructure work including handholes, electrical service panels to supply power for security cameras and camera poles.
Change Order No. 1 in the amount of $347,771.05 plus $34,777.10 (10% contingency) for a total of $382,548.15, includes the remaining security camera infrastructure. The cost was reviewed by the project engineer and MBPD and was found to be fair and reasonable. Additionally, the Contractor shall be granted a time extension of sixty (60) calendar days to accommodate the change in scope.
The cost associated with the installation of the infrastructure will utilize current allocated funding for the security camera project, managed by the Miami Beach Police Department.
The total amount of the contract including this change order is $9,824,349.75.
