Summary:

Improved Fire Department coverage is needed to better serve the growing southwestern portion of the community, including increasing residential density, Mission Trail Middle School and the I-35 Logistics Park.  This project is for the planning, design, construction, and equipping of a new fire station.  In coordination with the Parks & Recreation department, this will be the initial phase of development of the approximately 12 acres of property recently purchased at 148th Street & Lakeshore Drive.

Design and construction of the Fire Station #8 project will utilize the Construction Manager At-Risk contract method.  On October 18, 2018, staff issued a Request for Qualifications (RFQ) to firms seeking to be considered for providing design services for this project as well the Fire Training Center Improvements Project. On October 30, 2018, Statements of Qualifications were received from eight (8) design teams. The evaluation and selection committee identified three (3) teams to be interviewed and provide fee proposals. Following the interviews on December 11, 2018, the committee identified Finkle Williams, Inc. as the preferred firm for this project.

Attached is the proposed Agreement with Finkle Williams, Inc.  The Agreement is for comprehensive planning, design, and construction administration services.  The total cost of services as outlined in the Agreement is $363,400.

The following is the tentative schedule for the design and construction of the project:
