BOARD OF TRUSTEES
Amendment to Architectural/Engineering Contract, 50 Gerty Drive Building Remodeling and Addition, Urbana (State Universities Retirement System Building)
(14) On June 11, 1992, the board authorized the employment of the firm of Isaksen, Matzdorff& Associates, Inc., Urbana, for the professional services required through the schematic design phase of a $1.7 million 50 Gerty Drive building remodeling and addition project at the Urbana campus. Due to the need to build an addition to the existing building in order to accommodate all of the AISS operations and to update mechanical systems, it is now necessary to increase the project budget to $2.5 million (not including movable equipment) and to employ the firm for the professional services required through the receipt of bids. Accordingly, the president of the University, with the concurrence of the appropriate administrative officers, recommends the employment of Isaksen, MatzdorfF& Associates, Inc., Urbana, to provide the professional architectural/engineering services required through the receipt of bids for the 50 Gerty Drive remodeling and addition project. The firm's fee will be a fixed fee of $120,000 plus authorized reimbursements, which are estimated to be $13,000. Funds are available from the Institutional Funds Budget of Central Administration.
On motion of Mrs. Gravenhorst, this recommendation was approved by the following vote: Aye, Dr. Bacon, Mr. Downey, Mr. Grabowski, Mrs. Gravenhorst, Mr. Lamont, Ms. Reese, Mrs. Shepherd; no, none; absent, Mr. Boyle, Mrs. Calder, Governor Edgar. (The student advisory vote was: Aye, Mr. Begovich, Mr. Lawless; no, none.)
Increase in Contract, Supplemental Funding, Engineering Research Facility, Chicago (Contract with the Capital Development Board)
(15) On September 12, 1991, the board approved a recommendation authorizing a contract with the Capital Development Board for supplemental funding in the amount of $500,000 for the clean room specialty gas piping in the Engineering Research Facility project, Chicago. Bids received in June 1992 exceeded the funds (Capital Development Board and University) available for the project. The consultants were directed to revise the contract documents and to increase the scope of the project to include additional air-handling equipment required for the clean room complex. The project was rebid by the Capital Development Board on September 23 and October 7, 1992; and as anticipated, the total of the low bids received exceeded the Capital Development Board's and the University's supplemental funds available for the project by approximately $350,000. The Capital Development Board has advised that no funds are available for this additional cost and has asked the University to provide additional supplemental funds in the amount of $350,000. A State statute provides that the Capital Development Board and the University may contract with each other and other parties for the design and construction of any project to be constructed on University property. Accordingly, the president of the University, with the concurrence of the appropriate administrative officers, recommends that the University now contract with the Capital Development Board at an additional cost not to exceed $850,000. University funds are available in the Fiscal Year 1993 Institutional Funds Budget of the Chicago campus.
