Agenda Item Brief:

This project provides a remodel to the second-floor administration offices within Fire Station #1, which will greatly improve efficiency and security within the existing area.  Along with wall, electrical, and HVAC modifications, there will be a new secure entry point for visitors prior to entering the office area.  Staff recommends approval of the attached contract with Truckee Meadows Construction in the amount of $90,827.


Fire Station #1 was constructed in 1982.  The facility is comprised of a basement and four floors for fire fighters and administration staff.  The second floor provides space for the Fire Chief, Fire Marshall along with their administrative staff.  The current second floor layout is very inefficient and more usable space can be developed with a remodel project.  Safety also needs to be addressed with added security.  As Sparks grows, staffing levels must also increase to adequately serve the public.  It is imperative, with any city facility, to utilize workspace as efficiently and effectively as possible.  Refer to the attached location map.


This project will remodel the existing space on the second floor, which includes moving an existing wall, adding separate office space, installation of a new security wall, new carpet, electrical, and HVAC modifications.  The new security wall will require visitors to check in prior to entering the administration office space.  An exhibit is attached that shows the existing conditions along with the new remodel conditions.

An informal quote package was sent out to three contractors on June 17, 2020.  Three (3) quotes were received at City Hall on June 26, 2020 as a result of the informal quote process.  A full recap is attached for your review.  Staff recommends award of the construction contract, based upon the lowest responsive base quote, to Truckee Meadows Construction in the amount of $90,827, which includes a force account of $4,000.  The Additive Alternate was not accepted due to budget constraints.  The contract for the project has been attached for reference.  A quote summary of the responsive quotes is shown below for your review:
