SUBJECT:

Title

Approval of a contract with Debra Dockery Architects for the design of repairs at the New Braunfels Regional Airport for $24,110.

 

Body

BACKGROUND / RATIONALE:

In August 2017 the New Braunfels Regional Airport and other city facilities sustained damage as a result from Hurricane Harvey. The City had a facility assessment performed on the Airport Terminal and Control Tower buildings 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 Debra Dockery Architects as the selected vendor.  The design services will include design documents, permitting, bid documents and construction administration.

 

Staff recommends Debra Dockery Architects as the design team for this project. The estimated timeline is approximately 9 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.
