ITEM
Consider an ordinance authorizing Change Order No. 2 to the Fire Training Facility Phase 3 Project between the City of Baytown and Comex Corporation.
PREFACE
This proposed ordinance approves Change Order No. 2 to the Fire Training Facility Phase 3 (the "Project") between the City of Baytown and Comex Corporation in the amount of $173,480.03.

The City of Baytown (the "City") approved the contract with Comex Corporation for the construction of the Fire Training Facility Phase 3 on June 13, 2019.  The project is on schedule, but certain critical items of work related to ensure that the training facility meets industry standards must be addressed at this time.  One previous change order was administratively approved, in the amount $13,559.49.    The items that are a part of Change Order No. 2, are included below, and total an amount of $173,480.03:

1. The first item of work is for an increase of $105,762.72 for adding four (4) stairs, elevated grate walkway, and 186 linear feet of handrails to reach and traverse the elevated section of the fire training structure. These additional items will provide a realistic training experience for firefighters and allow an approach to fighting fires from different angles.

2. The second item of work is for an increase in the amount of $1,313.76 for adding a check valve at the fire riser per Fire and Building Code. This item was not included in Change Order No. 1.
 
3. The third item of work is for an increase in the amount of $156,477.55 for adding a water training reservoir, a different pump system, and extension of the onsite waterline.  The fire training exercises are expected require a large demand of continuous water for short amounts of time.  The pond will function to ensure constant service of training water, and no drop in water pressure or adverse effect on the City's water system. The pond will function to capture and recycled water used to fight training fires. Recycling of water will reduce the amount of water used during training exercises which will save money the City money. The pond will also function to provide a training opportunity on drafting from an open body of water.
 
4. The fourth item of work is for an increase of $924.00 for adding 420 linear feet of conduit for an emergency shut down from the liquid petroleum tank to the control tower.
 
5. The fifth item of work is for an increase of $1,008.00 for adding a concrete pad for the electrical equipment located outside of the pre-engineered metal storage building.

6. The sixth item of work is for a deduction in the amount of $92,006.00 for eliminating the landscaping and irrigation, one indoor fan, one outdoor fan, and substituting rubber baseboard in lieu of wood baseboard.
