Mount Prospect Public Works Department <br />INTEROFFICE MEMORANDUM <br />TO: VILLAGE MANAGER MICHAEL E. JANONIS <br />FROM: VILLAGE ENGINEER <br />DATE: OCTOBER 15, 2014 <br />SUBJECT: KENSINGTON BUSINESS CENTER JOGGING PATH AND LIGHTING <br />IMPROVEMENTS <br />DESIGN AND CONSTRUCTION ENGINEERING RECOMMENDATION <br />NOT TO EXCEED $91,139.86 <br />Background <br />As part of the Kensington Business Center development in the 1980's, the annexation agreement <br />requires the Village to maintain certain amenities within the Business Park, including the jogging <br />path and the jogging path lighting system. The jogging path pavement is deteriorating and in <br />need of repair. The lighting system is experiencing numerous wiring failures and because of the <br />age of the system, needed lamp and fixture replacement is becoming more difficult. <br />The jogging path spans across the business park from east to west and has fingers to the north <br />and south to provide connectivity to the entire business park. The existing lighting system is not <br />continuous but provides lighting at critical locations along the path. To facilitate the design and <br />construction of the improvements, the path improvements have been split into 3 phases: Phase 1 <br />— west of Feehanville Drive, Phase 2 — between Feehanville Drive and Business Center Drive, and <br />Phase 3 — east of Business Center Drive. Attached is an exhibit depicting the 3 phases. It is the <br />Village's intent to have the entire project, all three phases, designed at this time, as three separate <br />sets of plans and bidding documents, and construct Phases 1 and 2 in 2015. To accomplish this, <br />staff is seeking at this time to enter into a contract for Design Engineering for Phases 1, 2 and 3 <br />and for Construction Engineering for Phases 1 and 2. <br />Discussion <br />As permitted by the Qualification Based Selection process, the Village solicited Statements of <br />Qualifications from 4 qualified engineering consulting firms for design engineering services for the <br />jogging path pavement and the jogging path lighting system and for construction engineering <br />services for the jogging path pavement and the jogging path lighting system. Each firm was asked <br />to submit as part of their proposal the following information: <br />1. Resumes of key personal and related experience on similar type projects. <br />2. A summary of the firms approach to the project. <br />3. A staff hour estimate for major phases of work. <br />4. A project schedule. <br />Tasks that were identified to be performed included: <br />1. Topographic survey <br />2. Preliminary design <br />3. Final plan preparation <br />4. Bidding assistance <br />
