Construction and contracts

The Des Moines City Council recently approved a $160,372.11 change order on the Fire Logistics and Training Facility. The $8,130,000 facility is being built at 2715 Dean Avenue on a reclaimed site where the rubble and debris from the existing buildings had been used as fill. Final quantities have now been determined to be greater than those originally estimated. This change order compensates the contractor, Dean Snyder Construction, of Ankeny, for removal of unsuitable soils, debris and rubble and the import of clean fill material as well as grading and seeding at the disposal site on Southeast 30th Street.
