THE CITY OF 6 <br /> CITY COUNCIL AGENDA REPORT <br /> pLEASANTON. <br /> December 17, 2019 <br /> Engineering <br /> TITLE: APPROVE A PROFESSIONAL SERVICES AGREEMENT WITH JEFF <br /> KATZ ARCHITECTURE IN THE AMOUNT OF $12,500 TO PERFORM A <br /> PRIVACY NEEDS ASSESSMENT OF FIRE STATION 2 <br /> SUMMARY <br /> Fire Station 2 was built in 1985 and designed with living quarters to accommodate three <br /> squads of four firefighters, with each squad serving 48-hour shifts. The living quarters of <br /> the station include an open bunkroom, a bathroom with open showers, and an open <br /> common bathroom area with multiple sinks and vanities. As constructed, the living <br /> quarters require updating for both privacy and the accommodation of firefighters of all <br /> genders. This study will determine the feasibility of modifying the living quarters into <br /> individual, single-occupancy bedrooms and bathrooms so that each firefighter has <br /> privacy during their shift. A focus on privacy is now standard in the fire industry and how <br /> fire houses are currently designed and constructed. The study will review and determine <br /> all impacts associated with necessary modifications including plumbing, electrical, <br /> HVAC, structural, fire exiting, etc. At the completion of the study, the feasibility of <br /> performing the required improvements, and the estimated cost of performing the <br /> improvements, will be known. This information will be used to determine how to best <br /> proceed and, if appropriate, the work will be budgeted and scheduled for <br /> implementation. <br /> RECOMMENDATION <br /> Approve and authorize the City Manager to execute a professional services agreement <br /> with Jeff Katz Architecture in the amount of$12,500 to perform a privacy needs <br /> assessment of Fire Station 2. <br /> FINANCIAL STATEMENT <br /> Funding is available in CIP No. 18424, Design Fire Station 2. <br />
