December 7, 2017 City Council Regular Meeting
Motion to Award Deliberately Phased Construction Contract for Central Precinct to Johnson-Laux Construction (Event No. 5688)

Recommend approval to award a construction contract for the new central police precinct to Johnson-Laux Construction, LLC in the amount of $1,433,532.08. The central precinct will be located at Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard and 33rd Street. The work includes miscellaneous demolition, the relocation of 33rd Street, tree removal, tree protection, removal of existing curbing and asphalt, relocation and of underground utilities, grading and staking, site security measures, and preparing the building pad for further construction.

This is a sole source because it is the City’s intention to move quickly to expedite this process in order to construct the new precinct as soon as possible. As a result, the State of Georgia’s job order contractor will be used to perform this project to meet time constraints and City ordinance requirements. The State of Georgia’s job order contract is considered a convenience contract that is available for use by all State, City, and County public entities. The purpose of this contract is to provide multi-traded general construction services to accomplish small to medium sized projects for repair, alteration, modernization, rehabilitation, and minor new construction to infrastructure, buildings, structures, or other real property. The State of Georgia used a competitive bidding procedure to select Johnson-Laux Construction to serve as the sole provider of these services for this region.

The MWBE goal for this contract is 16% (11% MBE and 5% WBE). The contractor submitted MWBE participation of 21%. MBE participation will be in the amount of 11% using J. Eady Construction. WBE participation will be in the amount of 10% using Johnson-Laux Construction.
