BACKGROUND INFORMATION:

As part of the 2019 Bond Prop 2 Program, Zipp Family Sports Park Phase 1 will require 3 independent restroom and concession buildings to serve the softball, baseball and soccer locations.  Staff has elected to solicit the services of Restroom Facilities Ltd (RFL), utilizing a contract through the BuyBoard Cooperative, as part of the overall design of the sports park.  Each single-story building will be 702 square feet and include a concession stand area, 4 toilets on each side, water fountain and storage chase.  These restrooms will be similar to the one at Hinman Island. 

  

The restroom installation will be coordinated with the construction project for the Zipp Family.  The sports park project is expected to bid in 2021. It is necessary to contract for the design and purchase to better coordinate with the overall project.  Based on the current rates of construction materials and the park construction date staff is also recommending an additional 10% contingency for inflation and other factors in the amount of $86,703.  Total contract approval is $953,373.  The City will contract with Restroom Facilities Ltd utilizing a cooperative BuyBoard contract that complies with competitive procurement requirements.
