NOTES

There was much discussion with Lou, Denny and Bob regarding Keystone's additional work authorization, and after a conference call to John Thiry at Keystone, we decided on the following:

  • The North portico additional cleaning is projected to be $2,767.00 of which we felt approximately $500.00 was acceptable. The West portico additional cleaning is projected to be $3.049.00 which we felt was fair due to the extensive number of cleanings required and the difficulty the West portico entailed.
  • Regarding possible overtime wages - 8 man days projected for overtime was figured which is approximately $1,000.00. We decided to delay approving this until we see what time is actually incurred.
  • Applying two coats of Miracote to the West portico columns and bases is necessary due to the continual bleeding of the iron oxide and the unsightly appearance of the columns. The projected cost of 2.000.00 is to be approved.
  • Keystone estimated 60 buckets of Jahn stone restorer in their original proposal, however 30 additional buckets were needed. The estimate was based on 1/2" deep patches with 1/4" waste. Extensiveness of the depth of the patches was unknown at that time. The estimate was accurate as far as area takeoffs, however the depth of the patches was much greater than anticipated. We felt that we should share equally in this additional cost so we agreed to pay $3.000.00.
  • The total work authorization presented by Keystone is $15,000.00 plus the contractors mark-up of 10% which totals $16,500. The amount we negotiated, which all parties feel is fair, is $8,549.00 plus a 10% mark-up for Wallace Builders of $851.00. Thus the total change order #2 to be entered into with Wallace Builders in the future regarding Keystone, not including any overtime, is $9,400.00 which saves the county approximately $7,100.00.

NOTES

GENERAL

  • Lou and Bob met with Rick Boggs to update him regarding Keystone's additional work authorization proposal. Wallace Builder's will submit this as part of Change Order #2, which is to be presented to the Commissioners as the extent of the additional work is finalized.

WEST PORTICO

  • Keystone cleaned the upper stone balustrade prior to sealing the masonry and asked for approval to proceed. Lou and Bob told Kevin it is still not acceptable and to re-clean due to the iron oxide staining. Calls were made to Tom Auel and to Keystone regarding the re-cleaning. Dave Sebek will be at the Courthouse on Friday with Kevin to re-clean.
  • The plasterers are finishing the moldings on the portico ceiling and should be completed by Friday.
