Summary:

This project is in place to provide a Fire Training Center that will include a training “burn” tower, smaller fire training “props”, and a small restroom/storage building.

Design and construction of the Fire Training Center Project will utilize the Design-Bid-Build 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 as, the Fire Station #8 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 $162,700.
