Title

Consider a resolution authorizing the Mayor to execute a Professional Consulting Services Agreement with MLA Geotechnical for construction material testing services for the Brushy Creek Regional Wastewater System Plant Expansion Project.

 

Body

The City of Round Rock is managing the Brushy Creek Regional Wastewater System 10 million gallon per day (MGD) East Wastewater Treatment Plant Expansion project. As part of the responsibility of managing the project, the owners contractually pay for all of the construction materials testing services to make sure the contractor is meeting the specifications for the materials being used on the project.  Should a quality test or observation fail, the contractor is contractually liable to pay for subsequent testing until a passing test is achieved.  

 

On behalf of the cities of Austin, Cedar Park, and Leander, the City conducted a Request for Qualifications process to select a firm. MLA Geotechnical was selected with the full support of all the partner cities. This item is to approve a contract with MLA Geotechnical to perform the construction materials and observation services based on the costs for testing shown in the proposal and in Exhibit A to the contract.  

 

The not-to-exceed cost for this contract is $500,000. Although the contract is expected to be completed at a lower cost, the not-to-exceed cost was established to cover unforeseen circumstances.

 

Cost: $500,000
