A Resolution to Negotiate the Purchase of HVAC System Evaluation...
...and Assessment for Greenbelt Community Center from Mendoza, Ribas, Farinas & Associates of Rockville, Maryland - 1st Reading
The Community Center climate control system has not performed efficiently for many years. The fan coil units in many rooms do not work properly resulting in poor temperature controls, inadequate air movement and reduced energy efficiency. There is $15,000 budgeted in the Building Capital Reserve Fund to perform an evaluation of the Community Center’s HVAC mechanical system.
Mendoza, Ribas, Farinas & Associates (MRFA) has submitted a proposal to conduct an assessment of the Community Center HVAC system for a total cost of $9,660. The City has worked with MRFA on many projects in the past and has been satisfied with their performance. In addition, MRFA has significant experience evaluating and designing mechanical systems in a school setting.
Although the costs identified in the MRFA proposal do not exceed $10,000, staff recommends a resolution for negotiated purchase be approved for the work in case additional costs are incurred.
It is recommended the resolution be introduced for first reading at this meeting. (JM)
