It is recommended that the Board of County Commissioners (Board) approve the award of Contract Z000110-C, Historic Hampton House Restoration to Link Construction Group, Inc. (Link) in an amount not to exceed $6,605,178.
The Historic Hampton House (Hampton House) project, championed by Commissioner Audrey M. Edmonson, is of significant importance to the entire community, particularly the residents of Commission District 3. I have therefore directed staff to ensure its timely completion.
The project is located at 4200 NW 27 Avenue, Miami, FL 33142, in Commission District 3, which is represented by Commissioner Audrey M. Edmonson.
Fiscal Impact/Funding Source
The total Hampton House Restoration Project budget is $9,016,000, which consists of land/building acquisition, planning and design, construction, construction management, and contingency, covered by $6,500,000 of Building Better Communities – General Obligation Bond (BBC-GOB) funding and $2,516,000 of Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funding. The CDBG funding portion includes the additional $1.2 million that was approved by the Board at its meeting of March 5, 2013.
This item pertains solely to the award of the construction contract portion of the project, and is a subset of the overall project budget referenced above. More specifically, the construction contract award totals $6,605,178, comprised of approximately $5,634,000 in BBC-GOB and $971,178 in CDBG funds and is listed as funded in the FY 2012-13 Adopted Capital Budget Book, Volume 3, page 292.

Hampton House was designated a historic site by the Historic Preservation Board of Miami-Dade County on April 17, 2002. Restoration of the Hampton House, which consists of the restoration of a two-story, 22,000 square foot structure, will create a multi-purpose facility for the Brownsville community and adjacent neighborhoods. This project was included as part of the BBC-GOB Program approved by Miami-Dade County voters on November 2, 2004.
The County received seven bids. ISD staff conducted a responsiveness review of the offers submitted by the apparent three lowest bidders: Edgewater Construction Group, Inc. (Edgewater), West Construction, Inc. (West) and Link. Simultaneously, staff from the Office of Historic Preservation and the Regulatory and Economic Resources departments, conducted a review of the offers tendered for compliance with the Secretary of the Interior’s Standards for Rehabilitation.
During the negotiations meetings with Edgewater, the apparent low-bidder failed to include interior finishes in their bid. As a result, the County notified Edgewater that its bid was not responsible. The apparent second-lowest bidder, West, withdrew their bid. As a result, the County entered into negotiations with Link, the responsive and responsible lowest bidder. As such, Board approval of this item is requested.
