Award Community Center HVAC Replacement Project <br />May 16, 2017 <br />Page 2 of 3 <br /> <br /> <br />DISCUSSION <br /> <br />The existing 15 ton rooftop HVAC unit at the Community Center is over 17 years old. <br />The motor bearings and condenser fan motors have deteriorated due to age and <br />frequent use. A new energy efficient unit with compressors that meet Air Quality <br />Management District Freon regulations will be installed. The scope of the project will <br />consist of removal of the existing HVAC unit, installation of a new unit and platform, and <br />all related electrical wiring. <br /> <br />The California Government Code authorizes public agencies to participate in <br />cooperative purchasing agreements such as those established by the NJPA while still <br />remaining within the City’s adopted rules and procedures for purchasing. By utilizing a <br />cooperative purchasing program, the City is able to streamline the procurement process <br />for these services at a lower cost than the traditional competitive bidding process. The <br />NJPA awarded a contract to ACCO Engineered Systems, Inc. for specialized HVAC <br />related construction services. A copy of the agreement between National Joint Powers <br />Alliance (“NJPA”) and ACCO Engineering Services, Inc. is attached. The bidding <br />process and the contract with ACCO Engineered Systems, Inc. have been reviewed by <br />the PWSD and they have been determined to meet the City’s procurement <br />requirements. ACCO Engineered Systems, Inc. has satisfactorily performed HVAC <br />construction services for the cities of Los Angeles, Glendale, Norwalk, and Laguna <br />Beach. <br /> <br />ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT <br /> <br />The Community Center HVAC Replacement Project is considered Categorically Exempt <br />under Section 15301(d) of the California Environmental Quality Act (“CEQA”) since the <br />project consists of only equipment replacement at an existing public facility. <br /> <br />FISCAL IMPACT <br /> <br />The cost of the project is $32,117, and funds in the amount of $60,000 have been <br />budgeted in the Fiscal Year 2016-17 Capital Improvement Program for the replacement <br />of the Community Center HVAC equipment. <br /> <br />RECOMMENDATION <br /> <br />It is recommended that the City Council approve, and authorize and direct the City <br />Manager to execute a contract with ACCO Engineered Systems, Inc. for the Community <br />Center HVAC Replacement Project in the amount of $32,117. <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br />
