Summary: Due to the large number of squirrels migrating from the former Naval Weapons Station to Concord High School, staff is recommending installation of barriers to create fields that will be less conducive to burrowing on the site.

As such, the major components of proposed improvements include deployment of 1) ground-based rodent deterrent/barrier system(s) beneath proposed synthetic playing fields, 2) installation synthetic track (football), 3) synthetic fields (football, varsity baseball, softball), 4) interior landscaping repairs, and 5) master planning for future soccer fields.

Staff has negotiated, and is now recommending, that a contract stipulating a 'not to exceed' fee of $584,000.00 (inclusive of all reimbursable costs) be awarded to Verde Design, Inc. for the provision of comprehensive design, engineering and construction administration support necessary for approval and satisfactory completion of proposed projects. Completing ALL projects on a concurrent construction schedule would result in design cost savings of approximately 7%.

In 2012, the Board allocated bond funding for site selected projects at all high schools. Due to cost savings on projects previously completed, funds remain available for additional improvements. While the design phase is anticipated to utilize Measure C funds, proposed work is anticipated to utilize a combination of Measure C and Measure A funding.
Funding: Measure C
Fiscal Impact $584,000.00 NOT TO EXEED
Recommendation: Approve the Award of Design Services Contract to Verde Design, Inc., for facility improvements at Concord High School.
