SubjectCost Proposal for Structural Review for RCC Life Science/Physical Science Buildings with Rodriguez Engineering, Inc.
Funding College Measure C Allocation
Recommended ActionIt is recommended that the Board of Trustees ratify the cost proposal with Rodriquez Engineering, Inc. to provide a structural review for the Riverside City College Life Sciences/Physical Science Reconstruction project, and authorize use of the College’s Measure C Allocation in the amount not to exceed $29,500.

Background Narrative:

Gensler was hired to review Riverside City College’s current Initial Project Proposal (IPP) for the Life Science/Physical Science Reconstruction Project and then to convert it into a Final Project Proposal (FPP) based on the current Five-Year Capital Construction Plan.

After reviewing the IPP, Gensler requested that a structural review be performed to determine the existence of any structural issues.  Any associated costs would then be included in the completed FPP.  The District worked with Rodriguez Engineering, Inc. and received a cost proposal of $15,500 for the Life Science Building and $14,000 for the Physical Science Building, for a total combined cost of $29,500.  Due to the need for Gensler to receive the structural review report in time to complete the FPP and related Five-Year Capital Construction Plan by the submission deadline, Rodriguez Engineering, Inc. was authorized to proceed with the provision of services.  The cost of the services will be funded by Riverside City College’s Measure C allocation.
