The Yuma City Council discussed two contracts for the Pacific Avenue Athletic Complex at its Oct. 18 work session, with some council members criticizing the bidding selection process of such contracts (AZBEX, Dec. 1, 2015).
A $175,000 increase to a post-design contract with Phoenix-area firm Kimley-Horn and Associates, Inc. was the first item discussed. The $981,790 design contract for the new softball athletic complex was awarded on Feb. 17.
Of that total contract, $149,000 had initially been designated for post-design services, according to city engineer Josh Scott. That means the total for the post-design services would be $324,000 if council approves the increase, bringing the contract’s entire total to $1,156,790.
The other item discussed at the work session was a $340,000 construction administration services contract that is due to be awarded at Wednesday’s regular meeting.
The H2 Group, LLC of Scottsdale is first in line for the contract, which includes project coordination and work with various subcontractors, among other managerial services.
“The construction administration services will be more daily oversight of the contractor on the job (and) coordinating the contractor,” said Scott, noting that the design contract will play more of a “support role.”
Council will vote on the contracts, among other items, during its regular meeting at 5:30 Wednesday in council chambers, City Hall, 1 City Plaza.
