October 26, 2017 City Council Regular Meeting
Motion to Approve Contract Amendment No. 1 for the Cultural Arts Center Design Services Contract with Gunn Meyerhoff Shay (Event No. 1173)

Recommend approval of Contract Amendment No. 1 for the Cultural Arts Center Design Services contract. Additional services are needed under the current contract with Gunn Meyerhoff Shay related to modifications of traffic flow around the new Cultural Arts Center, specific to the Montgomery Street corridor.

In order to fully access and service the Cultural Arts Center, a plan has been conceptually developed to convert Montgomery Street from one-way to two-way traffic from Liberty Street to Broughton Street (Montgomery Street is currently only one-way in the northbound direction from Liberty Street to Broughton Street). This plan is based on an extensive traffic study and evaluation of the existing roadway network completed by Jacobs Engineering Group. Recommendations were made by Jacobs Engineering Group by addressing the existing and two future years' traffic conditions in the area surrounding Montgomery Street. Modifications or upgrades will be required to traffic lanes, traffic signals, informational signs, roadway stripping, and on-street parking. The outcome will be improved access on Montgomery Street to the Cultural Arts Center.

The services provided by Gunn Meyerhoff Shay will include topographic surveying, design development, preparation of construction documents for bidding purposes (including coordination of all sub-consultants required), aide in bidding and negotiations for the construction services, and administrative oversight during the construction period to ensure work is in accordance with the plans prepared. Additionally, Gunn Meyerhoff Shay will provide representation at all public meetings and municipal coordination sessions as needed.

The current contract amount with Gunn Meyerhoff Shay is $1,985,000.00. The total amendment value is $109,780.00, making the total contract price $2,094,780.00.
