BACKGROUND

One of the next steps in the work that DLR is doing in the high school renovation is to have both Subsurface and Geotechnical Engineering Services.  It is one of the items that was included in the budget presented at the last board meeting. 

 

DLR Group has received two (2) proposals for performing Subsurface Exploration and Geotechnical Engineering Services related to Anamosa High School Additions and Renovations.  The proposals were received from:

1.     Terracon Consulting Engineers:  Fee range in the amount of $5,350 - $6,450

2.     Olsson Associates: Lump sum fee in the amount of $7,100.

 

Both of these companies are reputable and have done work as mentioned in prior meetings.

THE SUPERINTENDENT’S RECOMMENDATION IS:

“accept the bid from Terracon Consulting Engineers.”

ISSUE:           Tremco Analysis – Quinn Phelan

 

FOR:              Information Only

 

CONTACT:  Superintendent Dale Monroe

 

 


BACKGROUND

During the course of the last 1 ½ years, Tremco and particularly Quinn Phelan has developed a relationship with Anamosa Community Schools that has allowed us to do deep analysis and timely repairs to some of the leaking that was occurring at the high school, Strawberry Hill and the middle school.  It might be best explained that forty years of neglected maintenance has been analyzed and steps identified by Tremco to help in a very cost effective and efficient way to make those repairs.

 

As Ed Sarsfield has become familiar with the job they did during the summer months and PPEL plans that have been implemented, he has learned of a service provided by Tremco that could provide us with 24/7 protection at a relatively low cost.  Tonight Quinn Phelan from Tremco is here to explain how he does his work, the kinds of information the Board will receive and how it would be helpful to us should the Board decide to pursue something like the Tremco plan.
