Summary: We have had significant interest in the District to add Automotive Technology to our curriculum. After much collaboration between the staff at the BRJCTE, CHS, Maintenance and Mr. Reaves, a plan was formulated to utilize existing space at CHS for this program.
Attached for your review is a proposed floorplan detailing the changes that will be made to CHS. Also included is a cost breakdown for the construction/renovation of the proposed area.

We are proposing to utilize Steele & Freeman as the General Contractor to complete this project. Since Steele & Freeman are already performing work at CHS, the overall cost for this additional project is reduced. If we were to use a separate General Contractor, they would charge us for “mobilization” as an added line item to their cost.

Local Government Code Section 252.048. "Change Orders" allows for us to add this work to Steele & Freeman’s existing contract per section (a) and (d) as follows:

Sec. 252.048. CHANGE ORDERS. (a) If changes in plans or specifications are necessary after the performance of the contract is begun or if it is necessary to decrease or increase the quantity of work to be performed or of materials, equipment, or supplies to be furnished, the governing body of the municipality may approve change orders making the changes.
(d) The original contract price may not be increased under this section by more than 25 percent. The original contract price may not be decreased under this section by more than 25 percent without the consent of the contractor.
Budgetary Impact: The estimated construction cost is $482,856 which will be paid using Capital Bond Funds.

Additional year one estimated cost for equipment/supplies/consumables and staffing is $136,000 which will be paid using Perkins and general operating funds.

Additional year two cost for equipment/supplies/consumables and staffing is $164,000 will be paid using Perkins and general operating funds.

The total estimated program cost for year 1 and 2 combined is $782,856.
