Detailed Plans for STEAM Building

Notwithstanding the professionalism of XL Construction, the District has concluded that other contractors from the pool would be more committed to achieving a zero-net energy building (or the most energy efficient building possible), and would engage in more vigorous value engineering prior to suggesting reductions in project scope. The Board will consider a new preconstruction services contract with the second-highest-ranked contractor in the pool, Overaa Construction. (March 14, 2018... will download)

District signed a $ 395,044 contract with XL Construction for a PHS project site analysis (incl. geotechnical and soils investigations); selection of building materials, systems, equipment and construction methods; review construction drawings with HKIT Architects; and coordinate project timeline with a yet-to-be-named district project manager.

District refinances 2013 CAB with a hybrid that converts to a CIB in 2023, saving $26 million in unnecessary compound interest charges. This amounts to an average property tax savings of $6800 spread over the next 25 years. By utilizing H1 bonding capacity this refinance will not reduce the overall bonding capacity but will increase the parcel tax in 2023-24 to $150 per $100k assessed valuation. $18.8 million of unnecessary interest charges (both compound and simple) are unrecoverable resulting from the 2013 issuance of a CAB with a 10-year no-refinance clause instead of a CIB or hybrid CIB in 2013.
