Background Discussion

On January 13, 2015, the Board of County Commissioners executed a contract with Brandes Design-Build, Inc., in the amount of $1,359,996 for rehabilitation of the backwash filters assemblies and the instrumentation and operating system.

On December 28, 2015 (No Cost) Administrative Contract Adjustment #1 was approved to add 66 calendar days to the contract time due to delays in the submittal and manufacturing process.

Change Order 1 provides for added structural repairs to Filter No.2 to extend the life of the structure. In addition, there is an increase in the quantity for the expansion joints in Filter Nos. 2, 3, 4, and 5. The filters could not be taken offline during the design phase to inspect the expansion joints. The additional time is due to delays in equipment start-up and missing anchor support hardware for the rails from the supplier and the Filter No.2 structural concrete repairs.
