The Winter Park Town Council approved a change order for the Hideaway Park Stage project in the amount of $34,342 at their October 17 meeting.

The contract amount agreed to on September 7 was for $3,375,26. During construction of the project, a few changes to the original scope of work were identified and presented for the council’s consideration. According to a memorandum from Capital Projects and Parks Manager Gerry Vernon, as stipulated in the construction contract, if a change order results in an increase in the contract price, approval of the Winter Park Town Council shall be required.

Winter Park Town Manager Drew Nelson stated the town received an additional 10 percent above the Guaranteed Maximum Price as part of their loan approval for situations like this.

There were two items that that had adjusted prices presented to the council. The first was structural foundation changes. According to the memorandum, plan set comments were received from Colorado Code Consulting concerning foundation footings and walls. JVA engineered corrective measures that included thicker foundation walls and a change in concrete mix specifications. These changes cost $5,336. The second item involved additional foundation changes. This item is related to a field discovery of unsuitable soils that had to be removed so that the foundation would rest on native soil. The substantial over-excavation caused foundation walls to be taller than originally designed as well as upsizing a concrete pad underneath the green room, according to the memorandum. These changes cost $27,062. Per executed contract, Big Valley Construction receives a six percent cost of the work fee to cover overhead and other costs. This equals $1,944.
