Re:

Ag Park Redevelopment

Following a presentation to Council on October 5, 2015 by the Ad-Hoc Committee for


the proposed recreation redevelopment of Goderichs Agricultural Park, B. M. Ross and
Associates Limited was asked to review existing cost estimates and provide an independent
opinion of the probable construction costs for the most recent proposal.
Attached to this letter are the following:
1.

Agricultural Park (Option 3) Stantec Revised January 14, 2014


Agricultural Park - Probable Cost Document
Goderichs community design as presented by the Ad-Hoc Committee
BMROSS Summary of Probable Cost

We note that the probable cost document attached suggested a total estimated cost of
$3.7M for the Agricultural Park (Option 3) Plans. A number of exclusions were listed at the
bottom of the document including the following:

HST
Irrigation
Bonding/Testing
Water, sanitary sewer, storm sewer and electrical site services

These items can represent considerable cost. Our estimate below has attempted to be inclusive
with respect to these and other known items.
The Ad-Hoc Committee made their presentation to Council October 5, 2015. As part of
that presentation, the group identified the essential elements of a redevelopment being:

Three (3) ball parks


One (1) soccer field
A skate park
Passive recreation space

2
In addition, the plan presented shows a washroom/storage building, playground equipment and a
future pavilion/picnic shelter structure.
Items not including in this new drawing that were part of the original schematic presented
to Council were:

Construction/reconstruction of parking lots


Concession booth as part of washrooms
A pavilion/picnic structure
No trails, walkways or sidewalks are proposed
Landscaping trees and planting are proposed to by 100 % volunteer provided

BMROSS can provide no opinion on the design, layout or need for the individual
components of the plan. We will suggest that the washroom/storage building not be placed on
the old grand stand pad. This construction would need to have the pad excavated for the
installation of footings and foundations and the connection of services. It is our opinion that it
would be more appropriate to maintain this space as parking space and place the
washroom/storage building near the southwesterly corner of the parking lot.
We note that the plan is schematic and conceptual in nature. No detailed design is
complete. BMROSS assumptions are based on the extent of the work as presented. As final
design documents are completed and actual quantities can be further developed, a better picture
of expected costs can be prepared.
We have prepared an opinion of probable cost based upon the plan presented, an
assessment of the required works and similar historic costs for the proposed installation.
Based upon the above, it would be our opinion that the probable cost for the
redevelopment as shown on the current version of the plan is in the order of $3,030,000. The
Ad-Hoc Committee has advised that the cost of an artificial turf soccer field will add $500,000 $600,000 to the pricing. More work is required on the exact nature of this proposal if it is to be
considered.
We would like to provide some commentary on our detailed estimate that is attached as
follows:

The amount for the rough grading and track removals is based upon an assumption of a
final grade being set and estimates of the associated cuts and fills on the site.
The barn removal item is based on discussions with a local contactor and with the
assumption that no environmental issues will be associated with the removal of those
barns.
The amount for the washroom/storage building is an allowance. No design is complete.
The size of the building is unknown.
The amount for the skateboard park is an allowance. No design is complete. The size
and nature of the facility is unknown. Discussions with a concrete contractor who has
built some of these facilities would indicate that a structure could reasonable be
constructed for this amount.

An amount for a new electrical service is based upon discussions with Goderich Hydro.
The amount for field lighting is based upon discussions with a nearby electrical
contractor who has completed similar works.
Estimates and the costs of storm sewers, tiling of the fields, sanitary service, water
service and irrigation are based upon estimated unit prices for the extent of the items to
be installed. Provision is made for the installation of potential playground equipment.
Amounts have been included for bonding, insurance, traffic control, contingencies,
design, contract administration and net HST.
We trust that the above is satisfactory. Should you have any questions please me.
Yours very truly
