5. Discussion and Possible Approval of Change Order for Construction Services
Description:  In the wake of flooding from Tropical Storm Imelda, a significant amount of the district’s facilities was damaged by flood waters.  The board hired LaBiche Architectural Group, Inc. to design a scope of work and bid the various projects for repair.  The board chose Mike Barnett Construction as its contractor for the Imelda repair work.

As part of flood mitigation, the board decided to have tile floors installed.  These floors will be able to handle future flooding; the floors will only require cleaning, drying, and disinfecting.  The tile, however, has to be installed on level floors to not present a trip hazard and to be within the specifications of the manufacturer for warranty purposes.  In light of the unknown and extensive leveling required to the floors at the campuses, Mike Barnett Construction is asking the district to approve a change order not to exceed $222,344.10.
