Roosevelt and Washington Elementary School Classroom Wing Project Design and Schedule Updates

At its May 8, 2018 Regular Meeting of the Board of Trustees, Staff presented an update to design and schedule in response to Building codes and schedules:

Roosevelt:

Code review of building overhang added in Schematic Design will work partially. Construction Documents added back in two (2) portions of covered walkway adjacent to new classroom building. Fiscal impact unknown, but minimal. New building got thinner and wider from Schematic Design to fit into set back from existing structures.

Washington:

Developer asked to reconfigure the bathroom to fit within their structural module. Moving the restrooms to the other end of the building will allow the developer to use the pre-approved structural system and expedite the DSA approval process.
BSD would also gain an additional student space with an exterior door at a projected added cost of $30K +/-.

Schedule:

Revised Schedule now shows Roosevelt completion March 10, 2019 and Washington completion March 17, 2019

Board of Trustees Awards Lease-Leaseback Agreement for the Roosevelt and Washington Elementary School Classroom Wing Project to Jeff Luchetti Construction, Inc.

At its September 12, 2017 Regular Meeting of the Board of Trustees passed a Resolution to adopt a Best Value Methodology to evaluate proposals In order for the Burlingame School District to undertake lease-leaseback (LLB) projects. Under Education Code section 17406, the District must award LLB Projects based on a competitive solicitation process to the proposer providing the best value to the District.

 
At its February 13, 2018 meeting after consideration of all of the proposals, the Board awarded the Site Lease and Facilities Lease to Jeff Luchetti Construction, Inc., who was the highest ranked respondent according to the Best Value Methodology.


The board also selected a revised design for both schools, and authorized an Additional Services agreement for Hamilton Aitken Architects to complete these designs and submit these designs for approval to the Division of the State Architect in two separate Increments.  Increment One is the site work, Increment Two is the buildings.  The Revised Project Budget is $16,466,729.00


At each school the selected designs will replace four (4) rented portable classrooms, with five (5) new permanent classroom wings that have covered walkways, plumbing, and attached restroom buildings.  These learning spaces will have all the amenities our other district classrooms have including, technology, natural lighting, furnishings, and fixtures.

Roosevelt and Washington Elementary School Classroom Wing Project RFP - Questions and Answers

Questions Answer
Can you tell me the engineers estimate for the projects?

Exhibit A-1

Roosevelt Elementary School Classroom Wing Project

Project Estimate:  $4,780.000

Washington Elementary School Classroom Wing

Project Estimate:  $4,570.000

The RFQ response requires “a current DSA PC number which would be applicable for the specific building configuration anticipated as a part of the Project.”  Of course this would be the only way to meet the completion deadline of August 17, 2018.  We don’t have a PC for this plan nor do we know anyone that does.  The building spec’s. look pretty typical for us. 

 

Do you know a building vendor with this PC?

See Addendum 1

When will Addendum 1 be issued?

Issued today as two documents.

Both can be referred to in whole as "Addendum 1" on the Bid Form

Is there flexibility on completion date still of August 2018 for both sites? While the proposals for this project will be based on an August 2018 completion.  Actual contract completion date will be negotiated as part of the Lease based upon actual production of modular buildings and covered walkways
What is the timing for DSA approval of the sitework component? Is the sitework package ready to be submitted/approved at the over-the-counter appointment for the buildings/canopy PC’s or will it be submitted and approved separately? The purpose of this question is to determine if the sitework can commence sooner in the schedule?

We will be submitting the site work package for DSA approval in January, and expect it to be approved by March, possibly sooner.  Because we don't expect the site package to be literally over the counter, we expect the submittal will be separate and earlier than the building/canopy submittal.  Our intent is to allow the contractor to begin sitework early on Roosevelt.

At its July 23, 2015 Special Meeting of the Board of Trustees, the Board Awarded a Contract for Phase One of New Fencing at Burlingame Intermediate School.

BSD Staff has explored our campus with the DTA Architects, Burlingame Police Department, and the San Mateo County Schools Insurance Group to assess school security.  Both entities support the efforts BSD has taken, including staff wearing ID badges, locked exterior doors, and an enforced visitor sign-in process.  Both recommend additional perimeter fencing, signage, and gates with the goal to direct visitors to one entrance and restrict access to other entrances during the school day.  Staff and DTA Architects met with school PTA’s, a site design committee made up of staff and parents, and held one (1) public input meeting. 

At the March 11, 2014 Regular Board Meeting, the board awarded a contract for this scope at all K-5 campuses.  Today we are presenting the lowest qualified bid for awarding this scope at BIS.

The first phase of the fences and gates at BIS are for the back of campus security and control.  The majority of added gates would be locked at all times and staff would have keys to access school from parking lots.  Two (2) gates that would currently give access to bike parking and Franklin Elementary School would remain unlocked before and after school.  Two 10 foot rolling gates will give access to Osberg Field and be open after school and weekends.  Phase two of the fences and gates would address the entrances off of Quesada.   The final plan is that only one entrance would remain unlocked for visitors during the school day, while still maintaining all required exiting from the interior.   

An Invitation to Bidders was published in the San Mateo Daily Journal, on the weeks of June 28th, and July 6th.  Four (4) contractors attended the July 9, 2015 mandatory pre-bid conference. Upon staff recommendation the Board awarded the contract to the lowest qualified bidder, Dryco Construction.

Questions and Answers - REQUEST FOR PROPOSALS FOR FACILITIES MASTER PLAN

Question

Answer

The RFQ lists BIS and five elementary schools, plus Hoover which is currently under construction – should Hoover be included in the master plan?  Does it require a facilities assessment and ADA transition plan, for example?  Or is there some reduced scope of assessment for Hoover?

Hoover will be a reduced scope.  We will include it in Master Plan for vision and capacity.  Edits below to Scope

 

Scope Should Read:

The Scope of Services includes a variety of master planning activities, such as: Define the vision of the district; facilities assessments of each campus; ADA transition plan (excluding Hoover); deferred maintenance needs and infrastructure assessment of each campus (excluding Hoover); and analysis of enrollment projections (projections provided by others); individual site master plans for all sites (including Hoover); preliminary cost estimating with professional cost estimator; process preparation,  public input facilitation, documentation, and presentation; and capital improvement plan. The scope of services shall also include meetings, as needed, with the District Facilities staff, site staff, and community groups, District administrators, and work study meetings and presentations to the Board of Trustees.

 

The Agreement indicates as scope “Assist the District in locating an appropriate piece of land for new facilities if needed.  What activities are expected under this item, in terms of assistance (Visiting a site and discussing impressions?  Preliminary design layout of a new school on the site?)?   Should the fee for this be listed as an optional service, or addressed as an additional service when the scope can be determined?

The intent is to open up the planning to look at all options for enrollment growth including the potential in locating appropriate land for a school or district office.

 

Please include hours in your fee break down sections:

 

  • Preliminary cost estimating with professional cost estimator
  • Define the vision of the district; Process preparation, public input facilitation, documentation, and presentation; meetings; Analysis of enrollment projections (projections provided by others)
  • Capital improvement plan

Exhibit A references a Program Manager or Construction Manager for the project.  Will the District use the services of consultant as a Program or Construction Manager for the Master Plan?  What would their role include?

EXHIBIT "A" RESPONSIBILITIES AND SERVICES OF CONSULTANT

 

The district is currently implementing a bond program, and has a Program Manager (PM) in place.  The scope of the reference in Exhibit A is to make Master Planning firms aware of the existing program.  The district does not plan to hire a CM to assist with the master plan process.

 

Is the supplemental sample master plan document (Section III.C) a separate document that accompanies our submittal or included in the total 50 page limit (Section III.A)?

No documents listed in section C. SUPPLEMENTAL DOCUMENTS will be counted in the 50 page limit.  But they must also be in the electronic format

What has the District budgeted for this project?

The District has no projected budget.

September 26, 2014 - On behalf of the Burlingame School District (BSD) Board of Trustees, the BSD has launched the Facilities Modernization Bond Program funded by the proceeds of the November 2012 voter approved "Measure D" bond measure.

The District feels strongly that the more robust the public process is, the better the project outcome will be. Staff at all BSD schools are working with Architects to develop the Schematic Designs for Site improvements.  In addition our design team at BIS is working on modernization of the BIS Media Center. The District is inviting you to attend these evening meetings focused on Schematic Design of the proposed improvements and BIS Media Center.

Schematic Design: Is the first phase in the design of a project where the project team prepares initial diagrams and drawings giving a general view of the components and the scale of the project after detailed discussions with the BSD staff and the community.

These Public Input Meetings are the community's opportunity to contribute to the design. There will be additional public presentations on the progress of these designs to the Board of Trustees.

If you are unable to attend these meetings and would like to submit input, please send your comments to the District's Director of Facilities, Tim Ryan at tryan@bsd.k12.ca.us, or (650) 259-3913.

The intent of these School Site Improvement projects and their associated budgets, is to repair possible tripping hazards and drainage issues on walkways and blacktop; and to develop the layout for the playground and game court striping.

At the BIS Meeting there will be discussion of the Library and Science Classroom building and adjacent courtyards.  And how a school library can support a 21st Century education.
