Consider an ordinance authorizing the second amendment to the professional services agreement with Element Architects, LLC, for the Citizens Bank Building Renovation Project.
This proposed ordinance authorizes the second amendment to the professional services agreement with Element Architects, in an amount not to exceed $113,775.00 for the Citizens Bank Building Renovation Project. 

The City of Baytown entered into a Professional Service agreement with Element Architects in November 2018 to provide a conceptual plan for the Citizen’s Bank building maintaining the exterior façade, and multi-purpose room, restrooms, and rentable commercial kitchen.  The first amendment was approved administratively in November 2019 to provide options for Utility Billing office or a restaurant incubator. 

Under the proposed second amendment, Element’s scope of work is to provide design documents for a renovated space to be used as the new Utility Billing office.   This includes saving the exterior façade, adding a new roof and a new internal and external envelope construction, ensuring structural integrity of the new building. The interior build out will include a lobby area, expanded area for customer service stations, public and employee restrooms, management/supervisor, collections and billing specialist offices, a conference room, an employee break room, meter operations and technician offices, and meter testing area. The intended outcome is for this building to contribute to the City's Texas Avenue revival initiative, which places importance on complete block faces and seeks to preserve this building for the integrity of the small business and the Downtown Arts District. 
Staff recommend approval.
