Resolution authorizing a contract with Paul Borg Construction Company, Chicago, Illinois, for the Sheriff’s Training Room in the Lake County Criminal Courts, Babcox Detention Center

 

Staff Summary

                     Lake County desires to enter into a contract with Paul Borg Construction Company, Chicago, Illinois for the construction of the Sheriff’s Training Room in the Lake County Criminal Courts, Babcox Detention Center.

                     The Sheriff’s Office is in need of an updated, larger capacity training room for continuing the education goals of officers and administrative staff, in addition to their public interactive activity responsibilities.

                     During the construction activities for the Lake County Criminal Courts Tower Initiative, the previously existing, undersized Sheriff’s Training Room was repurposed to provide available space for staff relocations in order to accommodate the ongoing construction needs for the Tower and Babcox Detention Center initiative.  The Sheriff’s Office currently shares space with the Circuit Clerk’s Office to meet the ongoing needs of their staff.  This project will provide an updated and full capacity training room to meet the current needs of the Sheriff’s Office and to allow for future expansion of use. 

                     An invitation to bid was issued and extended to 49 vendors and sealed bids were received from six vendors in the amount of $1,210,000 to $2,476,000.

                     Paul Borg Construction Company was determined to be the lowest responsive and responsible bidder who best meets the needs of the County in the amount of $1,210,000.

                     Funding has been secured for this service through the approved Fiscal Year 2019 Corporate Capital budget, the contract will be managed by the Facilities and Construction Services Department.
