Agenda Item No. VI. A. 6.

Washburn University Board of Regents



SUBJECT: Change Order - Student Recreation & Wellness Center



DESCRIPTION:



The information below is to assist in the explanation and recommended approval of Change Order No. 1 for the STUDENT RECREATION & WELLNESS CENTER project.



ITEM #1

PR #2 - MODIFICATIONS TO STRUCTURAL DRAWINGS

During the shop drawing review process, the structural engineer determined revisions were necessary to several beam and column connections as well as the addition of a 5 x 5 steel tube column 4" north of column line 10M to support the lintels at the window openings in lieu of supporting the lintels with a block pilaster.

Contract Add: $1,071.00

Schedule Implications: No Impact



ITEM #2

PR #3 - REVISIONS TO LOCKER ROOMS

During a review of the Locker Rooms, a potential cost savings was identified which also simplified the construction. This modification to the design included the elimination of one water closet, one partition and one toilet paper dispenser from the Men's Toilet 117A and realignment with those of the Women's Toilet 114A. These modifications also deleted a 4" waste in the women's restroom, relocated the floor drain in the men's restroom. Fixture counts with this deletion remain within acceptable requirements of the City building codes.

Contract Deduct: ($935.00)

Schedule Implications: No Impact



ITEM #3

PR #4 - SUBSTITUTION REQUEST FOR USE OF LIGHT WEIGHT MASONRY UNITS

At the general contractor's request, a substitution of light weight concrete block masonry for the "normal weight" block was considered. The request was made with the intent of making the high walls of the structure easier to construct by the handling of a lighter weight material. An added benefit to the project is the light weight CMU has a higher fire resistance rating than the normal weight block, and the contractor was willing to credit the project with 2 weeks of time. Although the light weight CMU is slightly more expensive than the normal block, no additional cost was requested by the contractor.

Contract Add: No Impact

Schedule Implications: 14 Day Reduction



ITEM #4

PR #5 - ADDITIONS TO STRUCTURAL REQUIREMENTS

During the shop drawing review process, the structural engineer determined two steel beams would need to be added to the south end of the gymnasium to span over the running track in lieu of spanning the opening with masonry bond beams. Additional steel and appropriate connection details have added to the construction cost. The architect felt an additional day was warranted since steel fabrication, delivery and installation is along the critical path for building construction.

Contract Add: $2,961.00

Schedule Implications: Add 1 Day



ITEM #5

PR #7 - REVISIONS TO FIRE ALARM CONTROL & AMPLIFIER PANEL

Revisions to the location of the fire alarm control and amplifier panel were made at the request of the Owner. There are no cost or time implications associated with this change.

Contract Add: No Impact

Schedule Implications: No Impact



ITEM #6

PR #8 - MODIFICATION TO STONE LINTEL & POUR STOP DETAILS

During the shop drawing review process, the structural engineer determined an additional steel plate and pour stop was needed to support the stone at the exterior soffit (ref: AE333, detail 5). Since original structural drawings showed no steel plate & pour stop as referenced in the architectural detail, the cost to order, fabricate and assemble is shown below. The architect felt an additional 2 days was warranted since steel fabrication, delivery and installation is along the critical path for building construction.

Contract Add: $2,670.00

Schedule Implications: Add 2 Days



ITEM #7

PR #9 - MODIFICATIONS TO ELECTRICAL TO ACCOMMODATE BATTERY LOWERING

During the shop drawing review process, the electrical engineer determined electrical changes were necessary to coordinate the battery elevator lowering controls with the shunt trip.

Contract Add: $242.00

Schedule Implications: No Impact



ITEM #8

PR #10 - ADDITION OF BEAM

During the shop drawing review process, the structural engineer determined two steel pipe columns near the rock climbing wall need to be laterally supported in the east-west direction. The addition of a beam (HSS 6x4x1/4) spanning from RB29 to RB 30 was determined to be the best solution.

Contract Add: $774.00

Schedule Implications: No Impact



FINANCIAL IMPLICATIONS:



The total Contract Revision proposed by CO-02 to date is as follows:



Construction Cost Increase - $6,783.00

Construction Schedule Increase - 11 Day Reduction



Original construction contingency: $270,560. The commitment from contingency is $6,783, leaving a $263,777 contingency balance. New substantial completion date as a result of this change order is July 10, 2004.



RECOMMENDATION:



President Farley recommends the Board of Regents approve Change Order #1 as detailed above.
