Title

Consider a resolution approving the emergency action authorizing the approved bid from Calvary Construction Co., Inc., of Irving, Texas, for the Keller Fire Station 2 Restoration, due to the February 2021 Winter Storm Event.

Body

 

Action Requested:                     

Consider a resolution approving the bid for Keller Fire Station 2 restoration, from Cavalry Construction Co, Inc, of Irving, Texas in the amount of $158,683.64.

 

 

Background:                     

On February 17, 2021 due to the Winter Storm Event, the fire line at Keller Fire Station 2, located at 737 Keller-Smithfield Road North, ruptured while the station crew was responding to weather related emergencies. The crew returned to the station to find 6 to 8 inches of water throughout the building, placing this station out of service until repairs can be made. Water was shut off and crews began water removal and salvage. A restoration company was brought in to dry out and remove mold as needed. The pipe broke due to freezing temperatures.

All cabinets were damaged, along with sheet rock approximately 24 inches from the floor. All ceiling sheet rock and insulation near the broken pipe was damaged. Almost all of the station’s flooring will also be replaced. Because the needed repairs were a result of an emergency, and given the limited availability of qualified contractors, the City Manager approved the contract during the week of the Winter Storm Event so that work could begin immediately. The contractor has already begun repairs to sheet rock and insulation.

The project is anticipated to take six weeks to return the facility to an operating state. 

 

Financial Impact:

The City worked with TML, the City’s insurance provider, to find a contractor and the cost will be covered by insurance minus the deductible.  The total estimated cost of repairs is $158K, however, the City will be reimbursed for all expenses above the deductible.
