XIII.C. Approval of Resolution 2017-2018-027 Authorizing the Execution of Change Order No. 14 for Required Additional Work at Horace Mann School with 2H Construction, Inc.
Rationale:
The Board of Education approved an Agreement at a special Board meeting on May 3, 2016, with 2H Construction for the Modernization of Building A at Horace Mann School.

XIII.D. Approval of Amendment No. 25 to the Agreement with DLR Group for Architect’s Fees for the Modernization of Beverly Hills High School.
Rationale:
On December 18, 2013, the Board of Education approved an Agreement with DLR Group for Architectural and Engineering Services for Predesign, Campus Modernization, and Redevelopment Services of Beverly Hills High School. Amendment No. 25 would adjust the architect’s fees for Buildings B1 and B2 based on the cost of construction. Architect’s fees are based on a percentage of the Cost of Construction, on a sliding scale defined by the Office of Public School Construction (OPSC), plus required specialty consultants. Architect’s fees have been updated by applying the OPSC scale per the original contract documents to the current estimated cost of construction. This Amendment also includes Bidding, Construction Administration and Closeout Services, not previously included in DLR’s agreed scope of work. DLR has submitted a proposal to perform these additional services for Buildings B1 and B2 for a fee of $2,723,304. When originally approved, the Agreement was based on a Schematic Design Estimate of $18,638,230 for Buildings B1 and B2. The current estimated Construction Design Estimate for B1 and B2 is $ 43,000,000. Therefore, an adjustment of $2,723,304 is appropriate at this time. Because the fee is based on final construction costs, the Board may be asked to amend the agreement in the future.
