Council received a report that additional work needed to be done on the reconstruction of the Ceremonial Road for the overall satisfactory performance of the finished work.
Council recalled its earlier approval that the project be awarded as follows:
Contractor: Messrs Oriental Femab-Amimike Quarry and Construction Ltd.
Consultant: Messrs ALF & Partners
Council however noted that the contract, when awarded, did not include the extension of the road at starting and end, drainage points 0 + 000 and 0 + 350 to cover effectively all the turning in and out from the University campus.
Council was informed that the Consultant for the project, Messrs ALF & Partners, particularly pointed out the additional works thus:
- Extension of the road at starting and end drainage points 0 + 000 and 0 + 350 to cover effectively all the turning in and out from the University campus.
- Demolition and reconstruction of culverts to provide access to and from Sports Complex and the 2,500 Seater Auditorium Complex.
- Desilting of the entire side drain to allow for unobstructed flow of surface run-off water in the drainage.
- Excavation of the projected 120m access road to provide a gentle slope into the ceremonial road
Council noted that a joint team comprising the Consultant, Resident Engineer, the Contract’s Site Engineer, the representative of the Physical Planning Unit of the University, and the Users Committee undertook a joint site measurement of the additional works and agreed at a variation out of which the sum allowed in the Bill of Quantities contingency sum was used to settle part of the additional works carried out by the contractor, and a balance was expected to be provided by the University to execute the remaining additional works.
Council noted that going by the new arrangement, the contract sum has been revised.
Council noted the need for additional works on the reconstruction of the Ceremonial Road as explained above and approved that additional works outlisted above on the project be carried out for the overall satisfactory performance of the project.
