Increase in Project Budget and Contracts, Paulina Street Parking Structure Repairs, Chicago
(24) On June 13, 1991, the board authorized the employment of Construction Technology Laboratories, Inc., Skokie, for the professional services required through the construction phase in connection with the $3.6 million concrete repair project for the Paulina Street parking structure located at the corner of Paulina and Taylor Streets at the Chicago campus. On March 12, 1992, the board authorized the award of a contract to R. Rudnick and Company, Wheeling, for the general construction work for the project. During the progress of the work, unanticipated corrective work involving the existing structure's post-tensioned cables have been identified, which will require additional work by the contractor who has estimated the cost of these repairs to be $540,000. In addition, the cost for the engineer's additional on-site engineering representation and material testing services has been estimated at $148,000 and $38,400, respectively. Accordingly, the president of the University, with the concurrence of the appropriate administrative officers, recommends that the project budget be increased to $4,548,000 and that R. Rudnick and Company, Wheeling, be authorized to proceed with the work as described on a unit-cost basis up to $540,000 as provided in the construction contract documents. To finance the additional work, professional services, and reimbursables, funds in the amount of $948,000 will be reallocated from the unobligated balances of the addition to campus parking structure D-l (Taylor/Wood Streets parking structure), which was a project also authorized under the Series 1991 Revenue Bond program. It is further recommended that the project engineer, Construction Technology Laboratories, Inc., Skokie, be authorized to provide on-site engineering representation on an hourly basis up to $148,000 and material testing services up to $38,400 based on the scope of the potential repairs. Funds are available from the proceeds of the Auxiliary Facilities System, Series 1991 Revenue Bond issue. Schedules of the firms' hourly rates have been filed with the secretary of the board for record.
On motion of Mr. Boyle, these recommendations were approved by the following vote: Aye, Dr. Bacon, Mr. Boyle, Mrs. Calder, Mr. Downey,
