Agenda Item No.



Washburn University Board of Regents







SUBJECT: Award of Contract for Living/Learning Center





DESCRIPTION:





Bids were solicited for construction of the LLC and the Softball Complex improvement. These are two distinct projects with different financing plans bid simultaneously. Five Mechanical Contractors, eight Electrical Contractors and four General Contractors submitted bids.





Tabulation sheet (A) identifies each bidder along with base bids and bids for alternates.





University staff and the project architects have analyzed the bids. Alternates were considered and several were selected based upon cost and value added to the project. Some of the alternates are required (they were bid as alternates so that specific prices for those portions of the project would be identified). The attached schedule (B) summarizes the base bids and preferred alternates. The recommended alternates did not change the low bids.





Total low prices for the base bid along with the required and preferred alternates are:





LLC Softball Combined

Mechanical - Piping Contractors $2,724,987 $47,998 $2,772,985
Electrical Torgeson Electric $1,269,500 $34,000 $1,303,500
General McPherson Contractors $10,009,046 $183,760 $10,192,806
Total $14,003,533 $265,758 $14,269,291


FINANCIAL IMPLICATIONS:



The bids are compatible with the LLC financing plan. Funds are available as noted on attachment (C).



RECOMMENDATION:



President Farley recommends that the Board of Regents approve contracts for the base bid and selected alternates with the lowest and best bidders presented in schedule (B) and summarized above.
