Many new university facilities launched as P3s

Mary Scott NabersPublic funding continues to dwindle and concerns about the impact to colleges and universities are mounting. Increased enrollments and aging campuses have created a growing inventory of much-needed projects that cannot be funded.

 

And, deferred maintenance on college and university campuses has become a menacing issue. Many are concerned about sustainability for the nation's higher education system.

 

While some would argue that learning is "going online," the country is not there yet. Most parents and students still expect college curriculum to be delivered in classrooms on a campus.

Ohio approved for $2.9B in road, bridge construction

 

Approximately 40 projects throughout state approved by transportation officials

Gov. John KasichConstruction could start within just a few weeks on some of the $2.9 billion in new road and bridge projects recently approved in the state of Ohio. State transportation officials approved the projects, $930 million of which are being paid for in part by Ohio Turnpike bonds issued in July.

 

The projects are part of Gov. John Kasich's Jobs and Transportation Plan, which the governor (left) said will create 60,000 new jobs and grow the state's economy thanks to a $3 billion investment in state infrastructure over six years.

 

"Our agriculture, manufacturing and logistics industries, as well as so many others, depend on our world-class highway system for their success and the $3 billion in new funds made possible from our plan keeps them moving so Ohio's economic recovery can keep moving," said Kasich. He said the projects are going to begin without a tax increase and are aimed at keeping the state's highways in top condition.

 

Jerry WrayWithout issuance of the bonds, officials say some of the 40 projects could have been delayed for years. "We have been working hard to move through the process quickly and get projects started," said Ohio Department of Transportation Director Jerry Wray (bottom). He said this new plan gets more projects started faster and without a tax increase. The state's transportation budget specifies that at least 90 percent of the bond money must be spent on road and bridge work in northern Ohio.

 

The $2.9 billion investment includes federal, state and local funds and is aimed at improving motorist safety, reducing congestion and adding capacity. The breakdown of allocation of the funding includes: $1.2 billion for 17 projects in Northeast Ohio, $932 million for nine projects in Central/Southeast Ohio, $494 million for 10 projects in Northwest Ohio and $286 million for five projects in Southwest Ohio.

 

Among the projects are $340 million to demolish the Inner Belt Bridge in the Cleveland area and to build a second, eastbound bridge. Another $274 million will be spent on the Opportunity Corridor, a boulevard to connect I-490 and I-77 and East 55th Street.

San Francisco Housing Authority opts for new program

 

Encourages private investment for renovations, upgrades in facilities

Mayor Ed LeePrivate investors will be sought for as many as half of the public housing units in the city of San Francisco, as the city's Housing Authority will participate in a federal program whose goal is to allow for renovations and upgrades that the Housing Authority cannot afford to make on its own.

 

The rental assistance demonstration (RAD) will allow up to 3,000 of the San Francisco Housing Authority's more than 6,000 units to be repaired and rebuilt with private sector capital. Mayor Ed Lee (pictured) proposed using the RAD program, which was approved by U.S Department of Housing and Urban Development Secretary Shaun Donovan. Although private dollars will revamp the units, the operation of the units will be turned over to nonprofits in the city. Donovan said "creative solutions" such as private investment and nonprofit partnerships are necessary because of funding gaps that resulted from the federal sequestration and other funding cuts.

 

Some of the city's housing areas have become bastions for crime and violence will be rebuilt through private investors under the Hope SF program. These sites will be demolished and replaced with both public and market-rate units. Use of market-rate units allows private investors to make a profit on their investments and also allow residents of existing public housing to stay in their homes.

 

"Ultimately, we want every site we invest in to become investments for the private sector as well," said Lee. Officials note that private investment may be the only way to solve the longstanding funding problems with public housing.

Nebraska school district passes bond election for school upgrades

A successful $12.93 million school bond issue last week in the Fort Calhoun school district in Nebraska will lead to the renovation and expansion of the Fort Calhoun Junior-Senior High School. Construction could begin as early as next spring. The bond proceeds will be used for new academic, athletic and activity spaces along with upgrades to security, the mechanical system and fire code upgrades to bring the school into compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act. The renovations project will now go into the design phase. Officials are hopeful to finance the bonds over a 25-year period, but the financing will be affected by climbing interest rates.

 

Ball State University to issue bonds to help pay for Central Campus project

Randy HowardTrustees with Ball State University in Indiana have approved the sale of about $39 million in bonds, the proceeds of which will be used to finance construction of the Central Campus Academic and Utility Project, Phase II. The bond proceeds also will be used to complete the Geothermal Conversion Project. Trustees also approved issuance of $35.7 million in housing and dining system revenue bonds to expand Johnson A residence hall. The trustees also approved the refinancing of Student Fee Bonds that will save taxpayers close to $1 million. Ball State Vice President for Business Affairs and Treasurer Randy Howard (pictured) said the refinancing help provide an environment to help attract and retain students and "continue our tradition of good fiscal stewardship." The renovation of Johnson Hall A is part of a bigger plan to renovate all of the university's residence halls. 
 

Ohio University considers new interdisciplinary science facility 
The longstanding Clippinger Laboratories building on the campus of Ohio University could soon be a thing of the past. The university is looking to build a new interdisciplinary science facility. OU Associate Vice President for Facilities Harry Wyatt said the Clippinger building may be demolished. The university's capital improvement plan includes a $45 million project that would build a new interdisciplinary science facility. The plan also includes $45 million to renovate Clippinger Hall. But, a study of the proposals showed it might be more beneficial to do away with the Clippinger facility and build a new one. A new facility would likely cost $90 million. Although the Clippinger building has been renovated in recent years, it has never had a complete upgrade of its operating system. The system has already outlived its 25-30 year life span in the nearly 50-year-old building. The university is seeking a firm to begin designing a new facility. Clippinger would likely not be demolished until the new facility opens. If the design phase begins in 2014 and construction starts in mid-2015, the facility conceivably could open by mid-2017.
  

College in Texas to build new health sciences building on campus

Lisa VasquezThe Collin College Board of Trustees have voted on a construction manager for a project that will bring a new health sciences building to the college's Central Park Campus in McKinney, Texas. Construction is expected to be completed in 2015. The new health sciences building is aimed at helping meet the increasing demand of the health sciences industry for graduates in careers that include nursing, surgical technologies, respiratory care, dental hygiene and polysomnographic technologies. "The addition of the health science building will allow us to take in more students, because right now, we can only accept the students we have space for," said Lisa Vasquez (pictured), spokesperson for the college. Vasquez said the facility will include a larger simulation lab, a state-of-the-art hospital lab, expanded clinical space, meeting spaces and an 850-seat conference area. She said the new facility will be the first exclusive health science building for Collin College and is necessary because of the growing interest in the program.
 

 

 

Other upcoming contracting opportunities

 

City in Massachusetts accepting bids for road project

Domenic SarnoThe city of Springfield, Massachusetts, is seeking bids for a project estimated at a cost of $6 million to reconstruct a section of Boston Road. The project is expected to get under way this fall. "This is not only a public works project, but a significant economic development project that will dramatically enhance the Boston Road corridor," said Mayor Domenic Sarno (pictured). The road work will include full depth reconstruction that includes paving, milling and overlay, construction of concrete sidewalks, wheelchair ramps, driveways, drainage improvements and granite curbing. Reconstruction of five intersections, including new traffic signals, is part of the project as well. The project will be funded with $5 million from the city and $1.5 million from the state, which will include design and construction. Construction is expected to take 54 weeks. The city decided to fund the majority of the project on its own to avoid long delays for other funds. That also helped free up additional state funds for other projects in the area.

 

Berths at Port Manatee to be enhanced with state funding

Port Manatee in Florida will use $6.4 million in funding from the state to help double the load capacity at six docks. This is the closest major American port to the Panama Canal, and increased activity from the Panama Canal is expected when the current expansion is completed. The $6.4 million is part of a larger $150 million investment by the state in its ports. The money comes from bond proceeds. The project includes doubling the load capacity at six docks. Port Manatee is a deepwater seaport near the head of Tampa Bay that serves bulk, breakbulk, container, heavylift, protect and general cargo customers. It generates more than $2.3 billion in economic impact annually for the local community. It also supports 24,000 jobs in the region without ad valorem taxation. Dave Sanford, the port's interim chief of staff, said the completion of the expansion of the Panama Canal was a primary reason the project was funded. He said as the nation's closest major port to the Panama Canal, "We believe Port Manatee is uniquely qualified to benefit."

 

Los Angeles considering privatizing two-dozen city-owned garages

Jaime De La VegaTransportation officials in Los Angeles are considering privatizing two-dozen city-owned parking garages. Nine of the city's garages are already being operated by private-sector firms. The plan being offered would turn the remaining 15 garages, currently operated by city employees, over to a private partner as well. City officials say privatization of the garages could net the city $1 million in revenue annually, some of that as a result of a private partner brining to the table new technology that could increase revenue. The city currently owns 119 parking facilities, which includes metered lots and free parking garages. The Los Angeles Department of Transportation (LADOT) currently operates all of those except for the 24 being considered for privatization. A previous attempt at privatization of these facilities failed, but the new proposal calls for no turning over of leases, but allowing outside contractors to operate the facilities. LADOT transportation head Jaime De La Vega (pictured) said outside operators have the marketing experience necessary for the parking lots and implementing the latest technology at the sites. "This policy direction has already been set by the council and the mayor," De La Vega said. "We're just implementing it."

 

City in New York seeking public-private partnership for development

Officials in Troy, New York, are hoping the third time's the charm as they seek a developer to redesign the former City Hall site. The first selected contractor for the project pulled out of the deal and the second time around, negotiations with a possible developer broke down. The city has thus issued a request for proposals (RPF) for a public-private partnership. The project will be supported by $3.9 million in various New York state grant funds. There is also the possibility of financial assistance from the Troy Industrial Development Agency. Developers responding to the RFP must provide a purchase offer and show their ability to financially support the completion of the project. The first time city officials began negotiations, a private firm pulled out after it was revealed that 60 percent of the residential space would be for subsidized housing and the mayor opposed that requirement. A second go at finding a partner would have resulted in more than 100 market rate apartments and 180 parking spaces for public and private use. Negotiations were never completed.

News about public-private partnerships (P3)

 

Kentucky city enters into partnership to save through energy efficiencies

Greg FischerCalling it a "win-win" situation for the city of Louisville, Kentucky, Mayor Greg Fischer (pictured) announced a public-private partnership (P3) that will save the city money. The P3 involves the city and a private company in the energy industry. The private sector firm will provide energy upgrades to government buildings throughout the city. There will be no up-front costs to the city. In return, the nearly $27 million private investment by the private partner to replace chillers and boilers with more energy-efficient systems, update aging electrical systems and install solar-powered hot water heaters will be repaid by the city. The annual payments will come from the energy savings the project produces. The private firm estimates that savings will be about $2 million per year. "If the energy savings are not realized as projected because of the work of Johnson Controls, the city will not be responsible for paying that portion of the project," Fischer said. The mayor estimates that the energy efficiency improvements will reduce the city's annual carbon emissions by more than 12,000 tons, and will help create more than 500 local jobs.

  

Rural areas of Maryland to use P3 to increase broadband access

Residents of South County, Maryland, are taking advantage of a public-private partnership that will allow them broadband access instead of having to use dial-up or DSL Internet access. Through the state's One Maryland Broadband Network, plans are to have a more than 1,200-mile fiber optic broadband network that links more than 1,000 government facilities and anchor institutions in every county. A fiber optic cable has been installed throughout South County, thanks to a partnership between the federal government, the state, Anne Arundel County and a private-sector broadband company. The result is bringing high-speed Internet access and other services to local residents. The private firm has made an investment in infrastructure near the Southern High School, where broadband Internet, telephone and video services will originate. These services will be available to approximately 800 homes in the county. Officials report that in many cases, those with dial-up service were too far away to get DLS service and would go to the local library for access.

 

Three transportation, infrastructure projects in Pennsylvania approved for P3s

Barry SchochTransportation and infrastructure projects in Pennsylvania, have been approved by the state's Public-Private Partnerships Board. The three projects seek to provide transportation services and infrastructure more efficiently with P3s than through other financing options. The proposals will help replace hundreds of bridges. Pennsylvania Department of Transportation Secretary Barry Schoch (pictured) said the use of P3s "helps us stretch our limited dollars," and said the state's P3 legislation provides the state with a tool for finding more ways to work with private companies to meet current needs of expand current services. One of the P3 agreements will lead to replacement of hundreds of structurally deficient bridges. The low bidder would manage bridge designs, construction and maintenance. That is hoped to be the model for multiple bridges. Additionally, the P3 board will soon issue a request for proposals (RFPs) for projects to be submitted by private-sector firms. The RFP is expected to increase the number of bids and thus increase competition, which should lower costs. The project results from a proposal by a private company to rent those facilities for placement of wireless antennas and related equipment aimed at improving signals in the surrounding area. The other proposal recommended PennDOT replace its Automated Permit Routing Analysis System (APRAS) used to issue special hauling permits with a turn-key system already being used in other states. 

 

Group in New Jersey pushes for P3 for development in township

A New Jersey township is looking to a public-private partnership to develop a proposed 192-condo community. The property in the township of Brick, New Jersey, would include a mid-scale hotel, an aquatic center, community activity center and bicycle trails. A group has been organized to push for the new redevelopment idea. They are hopeful to attract a mid-scale hotel of about 100 rooms possibly with an indoor lounge area. The hotel franchise would purchase that part of the property and the remainder would be open for other uses. The group, called Friends of Forge Pond, also is pushing for a 22,500-square-foot aquatic center that carries a $6 million price tag and would be available for the community, for competitive events and therapy pools. A proposed community center costing approximately $4.5 million would include a gym and a kitchen for outside catering. To bring the projects to fruition, the group is seeking public-private partnerships. Councilman Domenick Brando said he is opposed to the condos and would like to have seen the issue as part of a local referendum. There is currently no contract for the proposed condo proposal.

 

Public-private partnership to bring residential loft to Midland

Midland HousingA $12.8 million urban loft project is going up in Midland, Texas, as developers seek to help the city deal with a housing shortage resulting from the oil and gas boom in West Texas. A public-private partnership, the deal includes a developer building the residential housing facility, the Wall Street Lofts. The city, in turn, is constructing a parking garage adjacent to the building that will be used for both public and private parking. The residential facility is the first for downtown Midland. The developers, from Dallas, are planning a four-story, 108-unit building (as seen in the accompanying artist's rendering). It also will include 5,000 square feet of retail space on the ground floor. A trio of developers are building the facility with bank financing and a real estate firm part of the project to lease and manage the facility. Officials expect the project to be completed in December of next year.
