Tab 1BCC review of the interim presentation of the revised Judicial Centre design confirming departments to be located in the new proposal.

Approval is sought to amend the design of the round-a-bout to a smaller footprint following additional input from the City of Tavares. The smaller design requirement increased design costs but will reduce the cost of the round-a-bout in an amount greater than the increased design costs.

Approval is sought to install additional water and stormwater lines as part of the Judicial Center project which are not required for the project but are requested by the city of Tavares to meet their future needs. The estimated cost of this work is $100,000.00. This approval is subject to the City of Tavares crediting the county this amount on impact fees due to the city for the project.

Approval is sought for the execution of Appendix M to the existing contract with PPI Construction for the envelope repair to the existing Judicial Center. The cost of the work will be $726,631.00.

Approval is also sought for an allowance to cover Permit fees, etc. and a contingency of $73,369.00 to be used with the approval of the Director of Capital Construction and the County Manager. This work is part of the previously approved overall project budget of $55,225,000.00.

Approval is sought for an amendment to the contract with Heery Architects to cover the redesign of the Judicial Center in the amount of $2,729,650.00. There is no budget impact to this additional work as the previously approved contract with Heery and the agreed not-to-exceed fee will not be surpassed by the addition of these new services.
