The extent and details of the scope of services needed for the Project will be negotiated after the selection of the Consultant(s). These services include, but are not limited to, the following: 1. Prepare independent construction cost estimates at 90% design phase for selected projects. Cost estimate shall be a Class 1 Estimate as described in AACE International Recommended Practice No. 17R-97 and 56R-08. 2. Conduct meetings with SAWS, as needed, to define scope of work order, availability, and condition of documents (plans, specifications, reports, etc.), and other items that may impact the work. 3. Review design submittals prepared by Engineer, make as many site visits as needed to become familiar with the Project areas prior to preparing the scope of services and fee for the Individual Project Work Order. 4. Negotiate scope, budget, and schedule for every task in advance of 90% deliverables for the project. 5. Conduct a meeting with SAWS Engineering staff and the Design Engineer, to go over the project details, deliverables prepared by the Design Engineer, and identify items that may impact the preparation of the independent estimate. This should include key technical components, critical equipment and materials, specialized construction methods, key subcontractors, special conditions, construction sequencing, construction duration, unique project circumstances given its location and surroundings, project risks, special coordination requirements, and anything else about the project scope that might impact cost and schedule from the Contractor’s perspective. 6. Prepare a letter report type deliverable that includes a construction cost estimate, summary of assumptions made in preparation of the estimate, identifies project risks, and identifies items that were not clearly defined in the Contract Documents and that may affect the estimate. The report should include the summary page of the construction cost estimate in the same format as the Design Engineer, reflecting the structure of the bid tab or price proposal. 7. Conduct meetings with SAWS, as needed, to deliver the independent construction estimate and summarize key items identified in the letter report (e.g., unclear items, risk items, assumptions made, missing pay items, incomplete information, significant differences from Engineer’s OPCC,etc.). 8. Meet with SAWS and Design Engineer to go over the differences and understand implications for the project if difference between Engineer’s estimate and the Independent Construction Estimate prepared by the Design Engineer is greater than 20%. Provide an overview of reasons for these differences to understand where these differences stem from and work to reconcile the gap between the two estimates. 9. Ensure independent construction cost estimate takes into consideration local market conditions, bidding environment, availability of equipment and materials, price escalation, labor prices and availability, and contractor availability.
