Item Title:


New DPW Facility Construction - 3rd Party Inspection and Construction Management Change Order 1



Suggested Action:


I move that the Mayor and Council authorize an expenditure not to exceed $55,000 to Johnson, Mirmiran, and Thompson (JMT) for the third-party inspection, construction management, and final survey work required to complete the construction of new Department of Public Works (DPW) building under their current contract.



Summary Background:

In April of 2016, the Council authorized a contract with JMT to provide architectural and engineering services to the City to include the planning and design of the renovation of 3505 Hamilton Street and Prince George’s County required 3rd party construction inspection for the DPW new facility project, as well as designing a new sewer and water main in Arundel Place to serve the new DPW facility amongst a number of smaller projects and tasks. When these tasks were proposed and awarded in 2018 and early 2019, the number and extent of delays encountered dealing with the Washington Suburban Sanitary Commission (WSSC) and then the COVID-19 pandemic was not known or accounted for in the estimates. JMT has requested Change Orders of approximately $35,500 for the 3rd Party Inspection and construction management and a Change Order of $19,500 for the surveys required to satisfy WSSC and their review and acceptance process for the installation of the new water and sewer mains.


Next Steps:

Issue purchase orders and complete the construction of the DPW facility.


Fiscal Impact:

NTE $55,000
