The pre-tender estimate for the work in this contract was $3,067,000 (inclusive of HST).
This contract includes asphalt rehabilitation on sections of Neebing Avenue, Piccadilly Avenue, Ford Street, Market Street and Rosslyn Road. There is also full road reconstruction in the Harrison Street/Harrison Place area that consists of road base excavation, granular replacement, miscellaneous sidewalk repairs, street lighting replacement and repaving. The project on Rosslyn Road represents the final segment of Rosslyn Road repaving between the limits of 20th Side Road and 25th Side Road. The road work on Market Street includes the addition of a new storm sewer.
The project on Market Street is over the budget due to additional costs associated with the storm sewer component including rock excavation. The project on Rosslyn Road is also over the original estimate due to an error in the budget submission associated with staging of the works. An original submission had anticipated a shorter section up to 22nd Side Road; however the full limit to 25th Side Road was intended. All other projects on the contract are within or under the original budget estimates.
The firm of Bruno’s Contracting (Thunder Bay) Limited has done previous road contracts for the City and they are also scheduled to complete Contract 1, 2012 for Asphalt Surface Rehabilitation. Administration has discussed completion requirements for both contracts with the firm involved and they remain confident that they have the resources to carry out all work as scheduled. Administration is recommending this firm to carry out work on the contract.
