Subject/Action
SUBJECT: UNIVERSAL CITY PEDESTRIAN BRIDGE

ACTION: AUTHORIZATION FOR CONTRACT MODIFICATION

Heading
RECOMMENDATION

Title
AUTHORIZE the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) to execute a Modification to Contract No. C1043 with Griffith Company, for the design and construction of the Universal City Pedestrian Bridge, in the amount of $450,000, increasing the total current contract value from $24,264,752 to $24,714,752 within the Life of Project budget.

Issue
ISSUE

This action represents staff's efforts through negotiations to settle all claims. Staff is requesting approval to execute this final Contract Modification because the current available CMA is not sufficient to take action within staff authority. This Contract Modification is required to close-out the contract, and does not affect the Life of Project (LOP) budget.
Discussion
DISCUSSION


Findings

Metro issued the Notice to Proceed (NTP) for Design-Build (DB) Contract No. C1043 for the Universal City Pedestrian Bridge on January 9, 2014. The bridge had an aggressive schedule and was opened to the public on April 7, 2016.

During the course of construction, the contractor requested several design and construction changes. This Modification includes additional costs for escalators, increased elevator framing, and design modifications due to easement constraints.

Considerations

Staff has evaluated the merit of the requested changes and has followed Metro processes and procedures to validate and negotiate the change request. A list of executed (approved) and unexecuted (pending) modifications is included in Attachment B.
There is no change in the approved LOP amount of $29,585,000.
