7:27 am
going to turn it over to john updyke. >> we're talking about two property purposes one rental and consolidation of properties owned by the city next to the southeast water pollution control plant it is on the site we're talking about small triangle piece it is operated by the shop and it the automotive place of business we're removing them to expand the pollution plant to remind the committee we've are actually in escrow on acquiring the properties we came to you before on that and signed a 10 year lease on the site but we're talking about the construction of the development agreement we want to expedite that and now i'm going to turn it over to john updyke to talk about that. >> thanks i understood you
7:28 am
were going to sing that presentation (laughter) i'm not going to sing good morning john updyke director of real estate so part of key points and the outlined amendment the legislation as amended just provided to you so central shop on jerald must be relocated that was spoken to say the displacing agency for the relocation of shops to a fungal site in this case a merge of who acquisition and one less than two blocks wall previously approved by the board in december as please a carolyn talked about we were in talking about the sites when calculating
7:29 am
it is two acres smaller than the current site at jerald this is an expansion of the project it is actually a slippage of the size we're improving improving the business plan with the project and to be able to operate at two sites so the item before you seek the approval of who major thing the execution of a project delivery agreement as what the developer, llc and includes two contractors the general contractor this is charles buildings and the lead architect it authorizes us to engage in phase one in a not to exceed $10 million plus to complete one 100 percent construction secure the site, and the demolition,
7:30 am
and the foundation and the permits the permits for the lease holder and complete the demolition and site grading with necessary piles and submit the completed phase two budget schedule for a getting into the weeds maximum pricey return to you subject to our recommendation and the boards recommendation we expect that to happen around the end of the calendar year the other legislation is just the logics of the location and the judiciousal transfer to the sfpuc that is automatically tricked after a series of actions so the legislation refers to fully executed memorandum of understanding memorandum of understanding and this was
7:31 am
approved but is commission outlines the exception the rational the foundational and the logistics so the one dispatch is the with respect to, llc as the main developer and they're two partners in this venue the general manager and the architect f m a we've been doing since seeking out this essential balcony of talent to deliver this specialized project we had to find someone with the availability the marketplace to perform the skill sets we thought were necessary we also wanted to assure users or ourselves the pricing and others fees were at or better
7:32 am
than the market conditions currently out there we did a review the bay area developers we believe are scombild this this kind of project contacted 6 of the top developers in the bay area we received 3 responsive very robust comments on the proposed fee structure and the complexities of project things to watch out for and fills up the cost all of them responded that that was reasonable and fair they confirmed what we learned in the fall we didn't have the availability to perform on this project and lastly mandating the engineering that insures a guaranteed maximum price of million dollars that this project hard and soft inclusive of fees that had been
7:33 am
to meet or better was a eco key driver making that a risky venture typically that is reflected the higher development fee in this case 3.5 percent the fee was competitive indeed that is the item before you so i'll be happy to answer any questions you may have. >> you might have about this want to speak briefly to the amendments recommended the budget analyst report very quickly what is before you is all the time legislation those amendments clarify that phase one approve is not to exceed $10.3 million that's the only negligent before you relative to the execution of the contract and phase two with board approval the subject is not subject to chapter two 9 as utility project it is exempt it
7:34 am
is clarified in the amendments and lastly we are accepting of the budget analyst suggestion of a reserve of $4 million and note that the amended appropriation owners contains a krorltz reserve for the fiscal year fiscal years we're happy to make that amended to the amended legislation by the deadline necessary. >> okay. thank you very much interest supervisor yee. >> i have a question about the source it seems to me you went through somewhat of a process to identify who you could work with and i'm not understanding the difference of the process and actually taking out the bid when there's and reason we take
7:35 am
things out to bid to find the most expensive prices the biggest bank for the dollars i'm not sure why we wee we're doing this this way versus how we set up our system in the city. >> we looked at this project and finally decided the site a fairly recent development in the fall of last year not a secured site not a defined project into the community when reviewing this path that we've selected the item before you of a source selection versus a traditional bid process we estimated that will add 6 months to one years year to the delivery timeline of the project a circulation cost to the puc of $3 million a month relative to any dla classes, and, secondly,
7:36 am
we reviewed what the delivery cost is through a typical design build competitive bid to public works we estimate this will be savings of $4 million against the traditional prong with the time and budgeted constraint that made us select the process we engaged in we went out to the community to try to find who best can carry off this project everyone is so busy we can't get a phone call returned we were pleased particularly with the general manager who is reasonable familiar with the city and delivered great promise the past a public safety building or others so that's what drove us to proceed and do the cross-check it was indeed
7:37 am
competitive if they went through the solicitation process was better than we got through the process we have confidence that's what we've delivered today. >> your explanation sound good but i imagine your explanation could be used for almost any project in terms of if you're to save time and money not go through a boyd process trust me we got the best deal how do you responded respond to that we keep on breaking the mold of what we have set up to assure we'll get the best deals you're saying we don't need to be through the process. >> there are ways to cut the
7:38 am
rules to save money not always the appropriate but an exceptional situation i think mr. carolyn can articulate the exceptional nature of the overall project how imperative to the bay area community maybe highlight that. >> thank you supervisor yee that's a good question this is a redoing the plant a large project probably spend one $.5 billion o next year's the biggest driver the facilities digesters we'll to move them away from the residents and put them close to the railroad takes the sooner we
7:39 am
can move forward and mr. updyke was talking about the cost of money as was there a delay it costs more and more we've committed to that project and community so time is of the essence and if there were a pump station or typical what we do i'd like say we've gone through the regulars process this is the only time we will billboard a shop no, it is a speciality item not something we do it needs to be happening quickly the shop is a disaster the people deliver a better environment we would like to give that to them we want to move it quicker and it really see we're trying to save time and money to move forward for that community we have to
7:40 am
operate 85 percent of the selection in san francisco. >> okay. thank you for your explanation i think you know i'm a little bit uneasy with that process but your explanation and also have these unique situations we're put in i could sort of support it and i think what's more important to me the fact that the issue with the digester you know wanting to move away from the area means a lot to the supervisor in district 10 and difference to her i'll be supporting this. >> thank you. >> supervisor tang. >> i think this is a quo question for john updyke but in our conversation in the briefing i asked about the timing and
7:41 am
what else but we had discussions in terms of the your efforts looking for spaces the difficulties in that so i was wondering if you could here decide that. >> certainly supervisor we again did a search within san francisco unable to find a bid we landed on a sight in brisbane near the 101 from a speed stand point it was not all that different from the current location currently moving our fleet out of city and the mile age the deadhead million dollars to the fleet was then an over and over riding concern even though the project might have been delivered at a less expenditure expensive not a permanent solution requiring us
7:42 am
to go through the process in 10 or 15 years hence so we're pleased as we continue to look at the marketplace we landed on many this location only two blocks away from the current shop operation we're jumping across the railroad tracks smaller than we desire but making some business operation changes we believe we can operate quite efficient in this location. >> again to clarify the timing of the finds of leases or finalizing your agreement with the various property owners. >> sure the board gave us the approval to close on two escrows at lease a fully executed we have control of the sites one of the acquisitions is fully signed in escrow slated to close tomorrow and the second
7:43 am
acquisition is not going to close escrow until the end of february but we're on task and budget for the boards direction in december. >> the other question so right now central shops is liltd a central shop we're divide it 20/20 different places where the maintenance will be occurring can you talk about i mean one of the questions i asked the briefly was when you divide it up does that mean extra ongoing maintenance or personal long term can you talk about that. >> the intent supervisor to revise one location for a xhufrz so the main slit is between light duty and heavy duty repair
7:44 am
so that is a broifks and others on a large site that is valdez we've split the operation done in a thoughtful way not adding to the resource demand of the shops operations and through those business process changes we might even be more efficient than if we were on one side so i'll hoping this veeldz great change for the shops and the customers they serve. >> going back to tbudget anali understand the circumstances under which the projects are moving forward
7:45 am
i do want to thank puc for years ago they took me on the tour to the southeast water pollution area and personally got to smell what the neighbors who live across the street go through every single day so i understand from the prospective of those folks how necessary this is as well as the ongoing maintenance costs i think our city will be providing to the upkeep the existing facility so again though we prefer the boyd process i understand the urgency of this. >> okay. thank you supervisor tang colleagues, any questions at this time mr. rose, can we go to your report. on these items. >> yes. mr. chairman, and members of the committee regarding the waiver the city requirements has been discussed on page 24 of our report we report that the proposed ordinance will wave the
7:46 am
competitive bid the city's administrative code with the, llc developer and the developer selection of e architecture design and the project charles builders has general contractors the ordinance says due to time con straights and the extraordinary competitive real estate market the director of property has executed the project and identified teams capable of carrying it within the timeframe and within the budget development on page 27 of our report regarding administrative code the feasibility legislation as mr. updyke indicated he's requested an amendment we have not yielded supervisors weighed
7:47 am
in on that amendment for clarification purposes and an amendment to the proposed ordinance be expectation for the administrative code the fiscal feasibility that charter 29 does not apply to a capital improvement plan under the jurisdiction of san francisco puksz the relocation of shops will not be necessary it it didn't require the sites on jerald street and it is the sole fund for this source therefore as i understand this is why mr. updyke submitted that amendment or expectation and the recommendation on page 20 we recommend you approve this to clarify that the board of
7:48 am
supervisors only phase one design the project agreement reflective of the costs not estimate to be $8 million plus currently estimated $10 million plus or not to exceed $10.3 million, and, secondly, we referenced that chapter 29 exemption and third we consider approval the proposed ordinance 11226 we authorized the competitive bidding required by the administrative code on the proposed central shop to be a policy decision for the board of supervisors and finally we recommend you end the supplemental appropriation file to place $47 million of the total 62 plus million dollars on reserve and this is for phase one with the balance of $17.2 million not the reserve
7:49 am
given the budget analyst considers the file to be a policy matter this companion owners is also considered to be a policy decision for the board of supervisors the office of contract administration should ask a release at the same time a request approval due to the delivery on the board of supervisors. >> we'll be happy to respond to questions. >> thank you, mr. rose one of the questions on chapter two 9 is the utility we'll work with the city attorney's office to get to make sure that is vetted before we vote on it at the full board but nevertheless, part of amendments with us today okay. thank you, mr. rose for your analysis colleagues, any questions for the budget analyst seeing none, is there anyone

7:51 am
the city attorney prospective before the board votes and if any other questions otherwise colleagues we'll deal with that but i'm prepared to support this today. >> colleagues questions or comments or a motion. >> all right. so through the chair i think i also made my comments at a previous hearing so i'd like to manning make a motion to accept all of the recommendations that the budget analyst has stated and as amended forward out items seven and eight to the full board with recommendations. >> motion by supervisor tang and seconded by supervisor yee we'll take that without objection. madam clerk item 9 please. item 9 resolution authorizing the director of public works to execute the agreement to the

8:08 am
potentially be more common which i don't think is a good thing for the capital needs for the city needing infrastructure it and a either or sidewalks not people or pets we can insure both helping animals helps people as one example having an animal can help someone suffer from mental illness and the animals that help people keep come from the shelter we desperately need a new shelter and the the city zoning administrator's office were committed to understanding money through the certificate of the appreciation he urge the board to make sure this shelter gets funded if not through the bonds
