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 Administrative Contract Adjustment 1 was approved to add 66 calendar days to the contract time due to delays in the manufacturing process.

On June 21, 2016, the Board of County Commissioners approved Change Order 1 to add $62,157.04 and 111 contract days for added structural repairs relating to the expansion joints and delays with equipment start-up.

Change Order 2 primarily involves installing grout in the seven filters as a preventive measure for potential leaks and additional rehabilitation to one of the filters as requested by County staff. The rehabilitation of the filters is complete and the system is currently in operation.
