MEMO AUGUST 8,1988

TO: HECTOR MIRON

FROM: DAVID SCOTTY

SUBJECT: PROGRESS REPORT ON DOS 8449-A, EAST WING CONSTRUCTION



The plans for the construct i on in the East Wing of Government

House and the Fire Wall in the theater are complete. They have

passed through the state system and I have received verbal

conformation of thei? approval by the state fire marshall. The

contact person over in Tall.ahassee is "Red" Sullivan and Herschel

says he is a good man to work for.



The c-onstruction package is bhro:ken .up:: into,: elements that l end

themselves to the Force Ac::ount orn ocedure. The two largest

elements for the pro ject are set u.p tIo be id pro jects. Those

being the mechanical and the: el:c tr L cal packages. A few other

elements o f the job might also be oiddable, t !he ramp, the

construction of the- fire wall, a nd L he p.:laster in the east ,wi.ng.,



Herschel and I feel. that the most economical way to proc::eed with

the project is to bid the two large elements and to Time and

Material the remainder with a no't to::: exceed figcur e (Cost-plus,

not to exceed). The way to do this' would be to get a contractor

to oversee the supervision: o:f the project and facilitate the

coordinate ion of the various el ements., We would act as General

Contractor and Owner. It is my opinion that bidding the whole

project out would cost more than has been allocated.











I asked three contractors to write proposals for such a method of

construction. They were Len Weeks, E. B. Meade & Sons, and

Ernest E. Lee.



E. B. Meade decided that they were not interested in pursuing

such a method of construction because they couldn't realize a

sufficient profit. They did not respond with a proposal and told

me verbally that they were not interested.



Len Weeks is interested and has some people on payroll to

accomplish some of the needed task for the project. He would be

required to sub-contract some elements of the project.



Ernest Lee has proposed to supply Construction management at a

flat fee. He has no work ers employed. He would sub-contract

every element with some being h:i.d procedures and others being T.&

M.



I suggest that any way we decide to go on the management of this

pro ject be cleared through certain members of the Board of

Trustees. Mr. Sundeman used Mr. Lee and knows Mr. Weeks. Mr.

Janson has construction experience and could be called on to

support the appropriate method to proceed. My lack of knowledge

of local building conditions does not allow me to handle the

oversight responsibilities alone, thqgh I would act a general

overseer. If it was decided that I should handle all the





































oversight responsibilities than it must be understood that it

would be a full time job and not allow me any time to complete my

other regular duties.
