Agenda Item No. VI. A. 4.

Washburn University Board of Regents

SUBJECT: Change Order - Transitional Housing Project


The information below is to assist in the explanation and recommended approval of Change Order No. 1 for the Transitional Housing project.


1. Upon review of the construction drawings, City of Topeka's Engineering Office concluded the alignment of the Sanitary Sewer line was unacceptable. It was to go south from the housing complex to connect to the main on 21st street. This alignment placed it beneath the berm at the NW corner of 21st and Jewell Ave. The realignment suggested by the City, located on the opposite side of Jewell, requires additional piping, a manhole, trenching and repair of the street and other appurtenances for the extension of the pipe sanitary sewer line.


2. The second item was an increase in a segment of the sanitary sewer pipe from an 8" to a 10" to allow for expansion of the campus sewer system in the future.



The total Contract Revision proposed by CO-01 is as follows:

Construction Cost Increase - $10,109.00

Construction Schedule Increase - NO IMPACT

Original Construction Contingency: $350,892. The commitment from contingency is $10,109, leaving a $340,783 contingency balance.


President Farley recommends the Board of Regents approve Change Order #01 as detailed above.
