Design Build Bridge Contracts - Accelerated Bridge Programme 2019/2021

Record No:             R/19/11/26389

Author:                      Hartley Hare, Strategic Manager Transport

Approved by:         Matt Russell, Group Manager Services and Assets

 

  Decision                                        Recommendation                                  Information

 

 

 

Purpose

1        The purpose of the report is to seek approval to award two packages of design build bridge tenders to replace up to 19 bridges during the remainder of the current approved Long Term Plan (LTP) 2018-28.

Executive Summary

2        Council on 22 May 2019, approved unbudgeted expenditure of $3,000,000 for additional bridge renewals, acknowledging that Southland District Council will contribute $1.47 million of this with New Zealand Transport Agency approved funding of $1.53 million.

3        To utilise the $3 million additional funding available; 19 structures that lend themselves to design/build type procurement that are posing high risk to Council have been identified for replacement.

4        The 19 structures were separated into two packages of work that have gone to open tender and evaluated by the Tender Evaluation Team (TET).

5        The preferred tenderer for contract 19/25 Southern Southland Bridge Replacements is Downer with its proposal price of $1,544,121.88 (6.1% above estimate of $1,450,000.00).

6        The preferred tenderer for contract 19/24 Northern Southland Bridge Replacements is SouthRoads with their proposal price of $1,610,182.45 (0.6% above estimate of $1,600,000.00).

 

 

Recommendation

That the Services and Assets Committee:

a)            Receives the report titled “Design Build Bridge Contracts - Accelerated Bridge Programme 2019/2021” dated 26 November 2019.

 

b)           Determines that this matter or decision be recognised as not significant in terms of Section 76 of the Local Government Act 2002.

 

c)            Determines that it has complied with the decision-making provisions of the Local Government Act 2002 to the extent necessary in relation to this decision; and in accordance with Section 79 of the act determines that it does not require further information, further assessment of options or further analysis of costs and benefits or advantages and disadvantages prior to making a decision on this matter.

 

d)           Agrees to award contract 19/25 Southern Southland Bridge Replacements to Downer with their proposal price of $1,544,121.88 (excluding GST).

 

e)            Agrees to award contract 19/24 Northern Southland Bridge Replacements to SouthRoads with their proposal price of $1,610,182.45 (excluding GST).

 

Background

7        Through the 2018 Long Term Plan (LTP) process, Council identified the need to undertake further work to inform the extent of the bridge issue within the district. This work has now been completed and it is clear that based on the condition of the bridges along with the current budget availability, established through the 2018 LTP that Council cannot afford to maintain and replace all structures when they reach the end of their useful lives. The bridge matrix was developed as a decision making and prioritisation tool with the ultimate long term goal of a sustainable network.

8        Council has 171 structures that need to be replaced or rationalised in the next 12 years and a further 22 in the eight years beyond that.  Based on the current allocated funding there is a significant financial deficit to replace all these bridges within the next 12 years.

9        Council applied to NZ Transport Agency (NZTA) for an additional $3 million (programme value) for this current three year approved funding cycle of the LTP, which NZTA have approved.

10      Council on 22 May 2019 approved unbudgeted expenditure of $3,000,000 for additional bridge renewals, acknowledging that Southland District Council will contribute $1.47 million of this with NZTA approved funding of $1.53 million.

11      To utilise the $3 million additional funding available; the proposal is to accelerate the “quick wins” by replacing structures that lend themselves to design/build type procurement that are posing a high risk to Council.

Programme Discussion

12      Ideally the “quick wins” would be bridges that have been deemed required to be replaced and retained by Council and hence no divestment or significant consenting issues are likely to cause delays. However, due to the risk some of these structure are exposed to and lack of alternative access, replacement cannot wait until divestment negotiations are finalised, or until the next LTP (2021-31) is adopted.

13      It is recognised that with this approach, Council may lose the opportunity to divest some of these structures in the short term – however the health and safety risks must take precedent in the short term.

14      The ‘quick win bridges’ have then been sorted by length to determine sites that will lend themselves to simple design/build methodology. Structures less than 3m have been left out as these will be evaluated separately for possible culverts. Structures greater than 12m have also been left out as these will most likely need bespoke type designs and therefore only 4-12m structures have been considered for design/build replacement.

15      The list of structures have then been prioritised based on existing postings, remaining useful life and aggregated into two programmes of work – map of sites appended in attachment A.

16      Six of the 19 structures have been tendered as provisional items and will only be completed if budget allows.  All 19 structures have been built into the contractor’s work programmes as the intention is to complete all 19.

Tender Evaluation

17      Both packages of work were advertised on Local Government (LG) Tenders with contract 19/25 Southern Southland Bridge replacements closing on 20 September 2019 and 19/24 Northern Southland Bridge replacements closing 18 October 2019.

18      Both contracts were tendered with NZTAs weighted attribute method (50% non-price attributes, 50% price) and in accordance with Councils’ procurement policy.

19/25 Southern Southland Bridge Replacements:

19      Five tenders plus an alternative tender were received for the Southern Package with four tenders being conforming to the requirements set out in the request for tender.

20      The non-price attributes for the Southern Package were assessed and weighted with a Supplier Quality Premium being calculated ranging being $0.00 - $135,000.00.

21      The price submissions for the Southern Package conforming tenders ranged $1,544,121.88 - $1,833,260.86.

22      The preferred tenderer for contract 19/25 Southern Southland Bridge Replacements is Downer with their proposal price of $1,544,121.88 (6.1% above estimate of $1,450,000.00)

23      It is worth noting that Downer are the preferred for the Southern Package with or without the Supplier Quality Premium being applied.

19/24 Northern Southland Bridge Replacements:

24      Five tenders were received for the Northern Package with four tenders being conforming to the requirements set out in the request for tender.

25      The non-price attributes for the Northern Package were assessed and weighted with a Supplier Quality Premium being calculated ranging being $0.00 - $127,500.00.

26      A negative added value premium of $300,000.00 (approximate cost of two bridges) was applied to Downers submission; as there are significant benefits of having two separate contractors in the market in both the short term and long term.

27      The price submissions for the Northern Package conforming tenders ranged $1,610,182.45-$1,809,164.06.

28      The preferred tenderer for contract 19/24 Northern Southland Bridge Replacements is SouthRoads with their proposal price of $1,610,182.45 (0.6% above estimate of $1,600,000.00)

29      It is worth noting that SouthRoads are the preferred for the Northern Package with or without the Supplier Quality Premium and Added Value Premium being applied.

30      A breakdown of the scores and tender evaluation comments are appended in attachment B.

Issues

31      By replacing some of these bridges now; Council may lose the opportunity to divest some of these structures in the short time – however the health and safety risks must take precedent in the short term.

Factors to Consider

Legal and Statutory Requirements

32      Council’s objective is to maintain access where practically possible and economic to do so.

33      While Council’s long term focus is to rationalise assets to provide a more sustainable network; the programme of work at this time is only to replace structures that pose high risk and therefore we are obligated to act now.

Community Views

34      No specific community views have been sought in relation to this proposed increased bridge replacement programme however individual landowners have been contacted.

35      Based on ongoing negotiations with specific structures; the community have strong views on providing access and status quo level of service and therefore it is believed that this programme of bridge replacements will be supported by the wider community.

36      Views on the wider bride network will be sought through the 2031 LTP.

Costs and Funding

37      NZTA have committed to an additional $3 million (total project) for the current funding cycle (2018-21) if Council can contribute their 49% ($1.47 million).

38      Council on 22 May 2019, approved unbudgeted expenditure of $3,000,000 for additional bridge renewals, acknowledging that Southland District Council will contribute $1.47 million of this with New Zealand Transport Agency approved funding of $1.53 million.

39      This approved additional funding has formed part of the low cost low risk funding category.

40      The same funding assistance rate (FAR) of 51% applies to the additional funds.

41      The two tendered proposals sum to $3,154,304.33 which is more than the approved $3M expenditure.  This figure has a contingency sum of $200,000.00 between the two contracts and therefore is approximately right on budget.

42      The six provisional bridges will only be completed if budget allows.

Policy Implications

43      The current Activity Management Plan (AMP) did not anticipate the number of structures that are coming to the end of their useful lives as soon as they have. This has been demonstrated that the data Council holds in regards to remaining useful cannot be 100% relied on. 

44      Some structures need to be replaced with urgency to continue to provide suitable access and reduce the risk the community and Council is currently exposed to.

45      As a result of ongoing monitoring, increased inspections and interrogation of existing data; the recommendation from Council’s transport team is that an increased level of both bridge replacements and maintenance is needed to commence effective immediately.  This is far quicker than the AMP anticipated for.

46      Both contracts were tendered with NZTAs weighted attribute method (50% non-price attributes, 50% price) and in accordance with Council’s procurement policy.

Analysis

Options Considered

47      Two options are to be considered; to award or not to award the tenders.

Analysis of Options

Option 1 – Award both tenders

Advantages

Disadvantages

·        maintain and improve level of service provided

·        remove risk to Council

·        gain traction with quick easy wins while working through more challenging conversations/long term decisions.

·        None identified

 


 

Option 2 – Don’t award both tenders

Advantages

Disadvantages

·        None identified

·        more bridges will close – lower level of service

·        providing access may not always be achievable

·        increasing level of risk Council is exposed to long term.

 

Assessment of Significance

48      Not considered significant if appropriate measures and treatments are carried out now.  However this may change if the work is not undertaken and subsequent issues arise.

Recommended Option

49      Award both contracts as per the TET recommendation.

50      The TET recommend awarding contract 19/25 Southern Southland Bridge Replacements to Downer for their proposal price of $1,544,121.88 (excluding GST).

51      The TET recommend awarding contract 19/24 Northern Southland Bridge Replacements to SouthRoads for their proposal price of $1,610,182.45 (excluding GST).

Next Steps

52      Formally award the contracts and notify all tenderers of the outcome.

Roading Operations October 2019

Record No:             R/19/11/26089

Author:                      Hartley Hare, Strategic Manager Transport

Approved by:         Matt Russell, Group Manager Services and Assets

 

  Decision                                        Recommendation                                  Information

 

 

 

Purpose

1       The purpose of this report is to update the committee on the progress of the major roading maintenance contracts and provide some context to the 2019/20 budget.

2       SouthRoads currently have the Waimea and Central Alliance maintenance contracts with
Fulton Hogan having the Foveaux Alliance Contract.

Summary

3       Customer satisfaction; 189 Requests for Service (RFS), across the three Alliance contracts were received in October compared to 56 in 2018/19, an increase of 133 or 338%. This is a significant increase compared to the same time last year and well above historic averages (81).

4       The unsettled and wetter weather has been the main driver of this increase this across all the Alliance areas. Mud on the roads, gravel road maintenance and flooding (blocked culverts) are the main areas of concern.

5       In relation to health and safety; 11 safety audits were completed in October with no lost time injuries and 13 near misses reported. 

6        Activity performance:

·        metalling, 22,861m3 (45%) has been placed of a total 2019/20 budget of 50,755 m3.

·        grading, 4,978 km (37%) have been graded by October of a total 2019/20 budget of 13,400 km for the year.

·        over the past month the general focus has been getting reseal sites ready and drainage works including culvert clearing.

·        focus will start shifting towards pavement repairs as weather condition improve including commencing work on the 20/21 preseal program.

Alternative Coastal Route Seal Extension

7        LINZ have approved the survey plans and the next phase is to carry out a reconciliation between the approved plans and land purchase agreements to confirm all survey plans match.

Pavement Rehabilitation / Resurfacing

8        The Roading Company having started works on Edendale Wyndham Road/Brydone Glencoe pavement rehabilitation while SouthRoads have commenced work on Otapiri Gorge Road.

9        The 2019/20 resurfacing season has been off to a slow start due to the unsettled weather. Downer have shifted the larger sealing crews to areas with more settled weather. This crew along with any additional crews required will return as weather conditions improve.

 

Bridges

10      Two bridge design/build packages have had the tender evaluation completed and the outcome of this will be reported back separately.

11      Two bespoke designs are also currently being completed.

12      Mararoa Bridge and McDonald Road Bridge replacement are also underway however Mararoa has had some setbacks due to river levels as demonstrated by the photo below.

Financial

13      There were no outstanding claims or variations to the maintenance contracts.  All claims and invoices for completed work were certified and accepted.

 

 

Recommendation

That the Services and Assets Committee:

a)            Receives the report titled “Roading Operations October 2019” dated 26 November 2019.
