Title
Approval to execute a contract with SBV Architects for the design of repairs and upgrades at the Police Department for $64,700.

Body
BACKGROUND / RATIONALE:
In August 2017 the City Police Department and other city facilities sustained damage as a result from Hurricane Harvey. The City had a facility assessment performed on the Police Department by Facility Engineering Associates. The City has filed property claims with FEMA and its insurance carrier, TML. The claims process is lengthy due to the many Texas claims resulting from Hurricane Harvey.

Staff requested qualifications from the City's pre-qualified vendors from the IDIQ contracts. Pricing was secured from SBV as the selected vendor. The design services will include design documents, permitting, bid documents and construction administration for the exterior, and interior including the modifications at the former municipal court area and the necessary HVAC upgrades.

Staff recommends SBV Architects as the design team for this project. The estimated timeline is approximately 12 months for the design, permit/bidding and construction process. Bids for construction will be brought back to City Council for award. These tasks can be performed concurrently with the claims process.

If the City receives Claim funds from the FEMA and/or its property insurance, they will supplant the City fund balance expended.
