PTC prepping for fire station expansion

The Leo A. Daly firm has been authorized to begin architectural and engineering services for the expansion of the Satterthwaite fire station in north Peachtree City.

The construction project will add 2,400 square feet to the station and also involve the renovation of existing space into sleeping quarters, an exercise room and support spaces, according to the city’s agreement with the firm.

Leo A. Daly will receive up to $56,800 including reimbursements for various expenses that will be tabulated “at cost,” according to the firm’s proposal.

At last week’s city council meeting, Councilman Eric Imker questioned the compensation. City Engineer David Borkowski said the hourly rate for reimbursements would be for anything that was not defined in the scope of services for the project.

City Manager Bernie McMullen said the rates from his experience, were typical for the work but the city would monitor the costs closely.

The contract includes construction administration duties such as follow up visits for inspections during construction, Borkowski said.

The amended contract was approved last week by council.
