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. CV
