BACKGROUND

The City’s Sewer System Master Plan describes the infrastructure needed to provide sewer service throughout the City at build-out per the General Plan.  These facilities include sewer lines, sewer lift stations, force mains and gravity lines.

 

Lewis Management Corporation (LMC) is constructing the Preserve/Prado Sewer Improvement Project (Project) as a condition of approval for its residential development in The Preserve.  This Project is a master-planned facility and is included in the City’s Development Impact Fee program.

 

Consequently, City staff prepared a Request for Proposals (RFP) for construction inspection services for this Project.  On October 20, 2016, the City received three (3) proposals from qualified firms.  The proposals were evaluated and each firm was interviewed with the following results:

ISSUES/ANALYSIS

LMC is estimating that the project will take one year to complete, thus KEC’s proposal encompasses 200 working days with an 8 hour/day schedule and it includes specialty inspection services such as electrical, instrumentation and structural.  Consistent with the State of California Government Code Section 4526 and the City’s Purchasing Ordinance, Chapter 3.32, the firms evaluation were based on technical merit and experience.  KEC Engineers, Inc., was selected as the most qualified, responsive and responsible firm. Therefore, staff is requesting authorization to award a contract to KEC Engineers, Inc., in the amount of $267,750 for construction inspection services for the Preserve/Prado Sewer Improvements Project.
