Mr. Park­er McClel­lan pre­sent­ed the Activ­i­ty Reports. The oper­a­tion num­bers were down slight­ly, but pas­sen­ger num­ber are up in April, at 2.9%. The Air­port con­tin­ues to main­tain is mar­ket share across the Region at 23%. As the Region con­tin­ues to grow, that num­ber should grow as well. 

Ms. Dar­lene Gor­don pre­sent­ed the Finan­cial Reports for the first 7 months of the Fis­cal Year end­ing April 30, 2023. In the month of April, total cash increased $638,000 over March of last year. Com­pared to last year, cash increased $7.2 mil­lion for a total bal­ance of $40.1 mil­lion. Of that num­ber, unre­strict­ed cash is $28.5 mil­lion and restrict­ed cash is $11.6 mil­lion. In April of 2023, total lia­bil­i­ties increased $835,000 due to con­struc­tion. Excess rev­enues over expen­di­tures to date are $9.4 mil­lion. Oper­at­ing Rev­enues account for $5 mil­lion with Non-Oper­at­ing Rev­enues mak­ing up the remain­ing $4.4 mil­lion. Oper­at­ing Rev­enues to date are 110.56% of bud­get. Per­son­nel is at 91% of bud­get. There are cur­rent­ly 8 posi­tions open that we are try­ing to fill. Gen­er­al Oper­at­ing Expens­es are at 90% of bud­get. Most accounts are with­in bud­get and there is noth­ing out of the ordi­nary to report.

Con­sent Agenda:

a. Board Meet­ing Min­utes – April 262023

This Item pro­vid­ed for Board approval of the April 26, 2023 Board Meet­ing Minutes.

b. Rat­i­fy Pur­chase of Wheel­chair Lift

This item pro­vides for Board rat­i­fi­ca­tion of a non-bud­get­ed cap­i­tal pur­chase for a replace­ment wheel­chair lift for pas­sen­ger board­ing bridge Gate 2 at the Ter­mi­nal Building.

In com­pli­ance with the Amer­i­cans with Dis­abil­i­ties Act pro­vi­sions, each pas­sen­ger board­ing bridge at the ter­mi­nal has a wheel­chair lift mount­ed on it for the pur­pose of trans­fer­ring wheel­chairs to/​from the con­course and ramp lev­els to/​from air­craft. In May of 2022, one of the air­lines oper­at­ing the wheel­chair lift at Gate 2 loaded a large elec­tric wheel­chair on the lift which appeared to be with­in the weight lim­its of the lift. The lift sub­se­quent­ly failed as a result of the weight and posi­tion­ing of the wheel­chair. Upon request from the oper­at­ing air­line, tem­po­rary repairs were made to the lift and it was placed back in ser­vice. The tem­po­rary repairs were an attempt to keep the lift in ser­vice until per­ma­nent repairs could be facil­i­tat­ed and ulti­mate­ly failed. In Sep­tem­ber 2022, the lift was removed from ser­vice permanently.

The orig­i­nal intent was to replace the wheel­chair lift through an insur­ance claim, as we were not able to deter­mine whether the dam­age was due to mis­use or fail­ure of the lift. Upon fur­ther review by our insur­ance car­ri­er, it was deter­mined that we would not be able to claim the fail­ure of the wheel­chair lift and the claim was denied. 

In Feb­ru­ary 2023, an Invi­ta­tion for Bid” was pub­licly adver­tised for a replace­ment wheel­chair lift for Gate 2 pas­sen­ger board­ing bridge. At bid open­ing on March 9, 2023, one respon­sive bid was received as follows:

  • P & W Qual­i­ty Machine, Inc. — $25,190

Due to the oper­a­tional neces­si­ty of the wheel­chair lift it was nec­es­sary for the Exec­u­tive Direc­tor to approve the pur­chase. The new lift was acquired and placed in oper­a­tion on Gate 2.

The wheel­chair lift replace­ment was an unbud­get­ed pur­chase. In review of the Airport’s FY2023 Oper­at­ing and Cap­i­tal Improve­ment Bud­get, suf­fi­cient funds were avail­able to accom­mo­date the purchase.

Staff rec­om­mends rat­i­fi­ca­tion of the Exec­u­tive Director’s autho­riza­tion to P & W Qual­i­ty Machine, Inc., for the replace­ment wheel­chair lift at Pas­sen­ger Board­ing Bridge 2 in an amount of $25,190.

As part of the Airport’s cur­rent Ter­mi­nal devel­op­ment and con­struc­tion pro­gram, the Flight Infor­ma­tion Display/​Public Address sys­tem is includ­ed for re-design and expan­sion to pro­vide sys­tem capa­bil­i­ty and cov­er­age in the expand­ed Ter­mi­nal facil­i­ty. The final con­fig­u­ra­tion of the over­all sys­tem has not yet been deter­mined thus requir­ing con­tin­u­a­tion of the cur­rent Main­te­nance and Sup­port Agree­ment. Staff is request­ing to con­tin­ue the cur­rent Main­te­nance and Sup­port agree­ment, on a month-to-month basis, until final con­fig­u­ra­tion of the over­all sys­tem is deter­mined and imple­ment­ed at which time a longer term, com­pre­hen­sive main­te­nance and sup­port agree­ment will be procured.

On June 2023, South­ern Sky Avi­a­tion entered into a lease agree­ment for a par­cel of land to devel­op a sec­ond FBO on the Airport. 

Air­port Staff has received a request from South­ern Sky Avi­a­tion to mod­i­fy their lease to amend Sec­tion 5.A. of the Agree­ment, which states the date they are required to begin pay­ing premise rent. The request­ed change is to mod­i­fy the Premise Rent due date from Octo­ber 1, 2023 to Jan­u­ary 1, 2024. The request is based on the amount to time that the per­mit­ting process took based on the Bay Coun­ty Plan­ning and Build­ing Ser­vices workload.

Busi­ness Items:

a. Approve Con­tract for Con­struc­tion Man­ag­er at Risk (CMAR) for North Ter­mi­nal Expan­sion Program

Legal Coun­sel and Mr. Rick Mellin with ZHA were avail­able to answer any ques­tions asked by the Board about this Agen­da Item. 

This item pro­vides for Board approval of the rec­om­mend­ed Con­struc­tion Man­ag­er at Risk Con­tract and Pre­con­struc­tion Ser­vices Fees for North Ter­mi­nal Expan­sion Pro­gram. The CMAR Con­tract iden­ti­fies the terms and con­di­tions that will gov­ern the exe­cu­tion of the pre­con­struc­tion and con­struc­tion phase ser­vices. The Pre­con­struc­tion Ser­vices Fees define the cost to pro­vide pre-con­struc­tion ser­vices includ­ing con­sult­ing, sched­ule and logis­tics plan­ning, esti­mat­ing and bud­get­ing, and prospec­tive bid­der stim­u­la­tion for the devel­op­ment of a Guar­an­teed Max­i­mum Price (GMP) Amend­ment for the North Ter­mi­nal Expan­sion Program.

On March 2, 2023, the Air­port received five (5) respons­es to the Request for Pro­pos­als for CMAR for Ter­mi­nal Expan­sion Project. An Eval­u­a­tion Com­mit­tee reviewed the pro­pos­als and inter­viewed all five firms. The Com­mit­tee rec­om­mend­ed the Board approve the rank­ing and autho­rize Staff and legal coun­sel to nego­ti­ate the CMAR con­tract terms and con­di­tions and pre­con­struc­tion fees with Hensel Phelps. The Board approved the rec­om­men­da­tion at the April 26, 2023 Board Meeting.

Staff, legal coun­sel and the gen­er­al con­sul­tant met with Hensel Phelps on April 26th and 27th to dis­cuss con­tract terms and con­di­tions and their pro­posed Pre­con­struc­tion fees. The base form con­tract was a mod­i­fied AIA A133-2019 stan­dard form of agree­ment between Own­er and Con­struc­tion Man­ag­er as Con­struc­tor and AIA A201-2017 Gen­er­al Con­di­tions of the Con­tract for Construction. 

Sub­se­quent­ly, Hensel Phelps pro­vid­ed revised con­tract terms and fees gen­er­al­ly in accor­dance with staff, legal coun­sel and gen­er­al consultant’s requests. Terms and con­di­tions were enhanced to iden­ti­fy spe­cif­ic pre­con­struc­tion ser­vices and terms and con­di­tions for the con­struc­tion phase administration.

This approval will only autho­rize the pre­con­struc­tion ser­vices. Pri­or to any con­struc­tion phase activ­i­ties, Hensel Phelps will pre­pare a GMP pro­pos­al to con­struct the Project. Giv­en the com­plex­i­ty of the pro­gram, it is like­ly more than one GMP pro­pos­al will be pre­sent­ed for dif­fer­ent com­po­nents of the Project.

The Pre­con­struc­tion Ser­vices Fees include the fol­low­ing services:

  • Project Eval­u­a­tion & Consulting
  • Design Reviews
  • Bid­der Mar­ket Analysis
  • Esti­mat­ing
  • Sched­ule Development
  • Project Phas­ing
  • Bid­der Inter­est Stimulation
  • GMP Devel­op­ment

The Pre­con­struc­tion Ser­vices Fees are bro­ken into two com­po­nents: Pre­con­struc­tion Ser­vices and GMP Pro­pos­al Devel­op­ment. The fees were sep­a­rat­ed to allow flex­i­bil­i­ty as to when to solic­it final sub­con­trac­tor bids for the GMP Pro­pos­al devel­op­ment based on avail­abil­i­ty of funds for con­struc­tion. The fees are as follows:

Pre­con­struc­tion Ser­vices: $513,738.18

GMP Pro­pos­al Devel­op­ment: $ 96,478.21

Total Fees: $610,225.39

The pro­posed fees were nego­ti­at­ed based on the cur­rent design sta­tus and spe­cif­ic require­ments of the North Ter­mi­nal Pro­gram and are in line with gen­er­al indus­try fees for a project of sim­i­lar cost and com­plex­i­ty. This total fee rep­re­sents a reduc­tion of $86,529.15 from Hensel Phelps’ orig­i­nal­ly pro­posed fees.

Funds are avail­able with­in the FY23 Oper­at­ing and Cap­i­tal Bud­get to finance the ini­tial phas­es of work, and grant funds will be used as avail­able. Fund­ing will also be pro­vid­ed for in the FY24 Oper­at­ing and Cap­i­tal Bud­get for this Project. 

Staff rec­om­mends the approval of the Con­struc­tion Man­ag­er at Risk (CMAR) Con­tract for North Ter­mi­nal Expan­sion Pro­gram and the Pre­con­struc­tion Ser­vices Fees for North Ter­mi­nal Expan­sion Program.

Mr. Glen McDon­ald made a motion to Approve Con­tract for Con­struc­tion Man­ag­er at Risk (CMAR) for North Ter­mi­nal Expan­sion Pro­gram, and Mr. Matt Algar­in sec­ond­ed the motion. The vote was tak­en and the motion passed unanimously.
