This contract for construction management services was advertised on PSB 14-1 on 6/11/14, IPB# 22033889. The contract with Knight E/A, Inc. was awarded by the Tollway Board on 12/18/14 via board resolution 20547 in the amount of $10,106,663.97
This amendment in the amount of $177,398.62 increases the value of the contract to $10,284,062.59 and is necessary due to the construction manager working extended hours and durations during the 2015 and 2016 construction seasons as a result of the contractor working under an accelerated schedule. In addition, the construction contracts were extended into 2018 (approximately 15 months beyond the negotiated/estimated end of CM service) to complete the remaining contract work (ramp work, landscaping, ITS & fencing). This amendment provides for additional staffing hours necessary to allow the construction manager to oversee the final documentation, determine the final contract quantities and complete all other closeout activities.
