Mr. Thomas asked for the skill set that the project manager position requires. Mr. Bennett noted that prior to attaching a dollar amount to the project the staff reviewed what the project would require. He noted that the project start date of January 1 does not allow an outside vendor enough time to get to know the intricacies of the agency and move the project forward positively. Ms. King due to her IT background she stated that you cannot put a value on a person who knows the system. Mr. Manos clarified that the Finance Committee agrees that a project manager is needed and that Pam is a good candidate recommendation.

15 MEMORANDUM TO: Tom O Rourke FROM: Charles McManus Date: December 2, 2015 Re: Contract for Fiber Optic Project for Cable and Wiring This is an award for the contract for installation of fiber optic cable at James Island County Park for $92,880.00, part of the IT Fiber Infrastructure project for James Island and Palmetto Islands County Parks previously approved by the Commission during the FY budget process. The total project is budgeted for $151,250; acceptance of this contract will leave $58,370 remaining. The Palmetto Islands County Park portion of the project is delayed until further evaluation by the CIP Committee. This project will extend the current fiber optic network at James Island County Park, which currently connects Splash Zone, Park Center and Campground, to the Picnic Center and the Gatehouse. This will allow better infrastructure to support the year-round activities, special events and HFOL operations. The project will also include an additional unused conduit and dark fiber for future needs. Once installed, we will be able to reduce the number of T1 circuits needed to support the operation of the park to create yearly cost savings of approximately $21,000 per year (Eliminate 4 TI connections at approximately $1,800 per month). Request approval to award a contract for cable and wiring under state contract # to Network Cabling Infrastructures Inc. (NCI). Recommend approval to award cable and wiring under state contract to Network Cabling Infrastructures Inc. (NCI) for an estimated yearly total of $92, with the funds coming from the approved CIP Budget. Attachment: Project Map

24 Customer Quotes Our group had a chance to bond with their cohort members in a way that highlighted leadership. We can now use this as a foundation for them to understand and see that leadership is not about a position or a certain professional field/career; it is a process! Challenge Course Custom Program Leader Participant Students who are not outgoing in school showed a leadership role during our time at the Park. High School Teacher, Challenge Course Custom Programs Loved being able to see the park from the water. Interesting discussions with the trip leaders. Just enough people in the group, not too big for the leaders to handle. Canoe Participant, Canoeing at Caw Caw County Park Hands on, and outdoors in nature. Both instructors were great! Public School Custom Program Participant I appreciated the instructor being so knowledgeable and thorough. Intro to Climbing Participant Awesome program.

25 Events, Parks, and Programs Holiday Festival of Lights The Holiday Festival of Lights began its 26 th year November 11 th with the annual Fun Run and Walk. This event sold out both Wednesday and Thursday nights before opening to vehicles on Friday. The Parks Division has spent countless hours decorating, hanging lights, stocking shelves, cleaning, painting, and coordinating all of the many facets of the show with the other divisions to make sure no small details were overlooked. Our staff continues to go the extra mile to ensure our guests have a memorable and enjoyable experience. Magic Managers are now on duty weekends ready to provide exceptional customer service at the Holiday Festival of Lights. Our jolly customer service representatives can be spotted escorting visitors to where they need to go, doing whatever it takes to stop a crying child, taking pictures of families and offering suggestions on food and services. You can find these cheerful elves boarding buses as they welcome them to Winter Wonderland. The goal of this select group of individuals.adding a little magic to our show They have replaced spilt drinks and handed out too many candy canes to count! What a great addition they have made to an already magical, family tradition during the holiday season.

26 Events, Parks, and Programs James Island County Park JICP Splash Zone Maintenance Crew recently had a 25 horse power turbine removed from Splash Zone so it could be serviced over the winter. This turbine is used for operating the Lazy River. By doing maintenance on the pumps and motors for the waterparks now it will help to insure no down time during the summer season. A new feeder valve has been installed at JICP Splash Zone. This valve will reduce the pressure from 125 psi (which is very high) to a more manageable 75 psi. Installing this feeder valve will alleviate the pressure in the pipe and stop the pipes from bursting while filling the pools. Laurel Hill Guardrails have been installed over the causeway at Laurel Hill.

This training was held at Folly Beach County Park. This group rebuilt the stairs and boardwalk over the dunes at the Pelican Watch Shelter. It has been fifteen years since it was last replaced and it was in need of repair before next year s busy season arrives. All participants gained valuable carpentry skills and produced a quality product.

34 Capital Projects Update Rendering of SK8 Charleston, by consultant Team Pain. The design phase of the skatepark is wrapping up, including the permitting through the City of Charleston s Technical Plan Review for the site and the Design Review for the building. Based on the completed design and city requirements, Hightower has been able to refine the costs to build the Park on the Oceanic Site. Staff have been working with Hightower to find cost reduction opportunities, without sacrificing the quality of the project. This will be an on-going process throughout construction, and is one of the advantages of Design-Build. The removal of excess soil surcharge is anticipated to begin in December. The soil has been tested according to the South Carolina Department of Health & Environmental Control (SCDHEC) specifications and they must review these soil tests results prior to it being trucked to another site. SCDHEC will also require the remaining surcharge to be tested. This is the soil that will remain on site and be used in building the skatepark. The Bulkhead Repair and Outfall Structure project was successfully bid with three companies responding. Rakes Building & Maintenance Contractors, LLC (dba, Blutide Marine Construction) provided the best overall proposal which included technical and cost factors with a 100% Small Business Enterprise goal. The proposed bid is within budget. The US Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) permit for this project was received on November 17, The anticipated repair on the Bulkhead will start January 4, The Capital Design Staff provides assistance with the planning of some projects and facilitates the Design Review Process. The following are projects that were reviewed and have received approval since the previous Commission Meeting: A section of bulkhead currently roped off for safety prior to repair.

35 Capital Projects Update cont d In March of this year, it was discovered that there was significant rot and splitting of the stairs and platform framing and handrail posts at the Splash Zone Slide Tower. Park staff performed emergency repairs to make the tower safe for the summer season, but we knew we would need to hire a consultant and make more permanent repairs in the off-season. We have since contracted with Applied Building Sciences (ABS) to provide construction documents and oversight for these repairs. The rotted wooden stairs and platforms will be replaced with fiberglass components that will not rot or corrode and will never need painting. We have received preliminary drawings and will advertise the project this month, with bids due in January. The Splash Island Pool Floors, Tile and Seams renovation project Invitation-For-Bids was posted on the PRC website November 24. The project includes resurfacing both the main and activity pool floors; replacing three concrete bases for in-pool umbrellas; replacing tile, seams and slide landing pads. A non-mandatory pre-bid meeting is scheduled for December 9. Only contractors who have been issued a public swimming pool specialty license in accordance with the South Carolina Department of Labor, Licensing and Regulations are qualified to bid for this project. Bids are due January 12 and the goal is to present the winning bid at the January Commission meeting. Photo of pool surface to be replaced. Capital Projects is assisting Park and Finance staff with applying for FEMA funds to repair our washed out emergency vehicle Beach Access. The combination of heavy rains, flooding from rainwaters and extremely high tides washed a two foot deep trench where our normal path existed. We are working to restore the sand and reinstall a wooden clatter bridge for this important beach access. A section of bulkhead prior to repair. Beach access washed out and full of marsh grass
36 Capital Projects Update cont d CCPRC has completed the final design and cost proposal for the installation of fiber optic cable for certain key locations within James Island County Park. This IT project will utilize an existing SC State Contract. Staff will be seeking approval at the December Commission meeting in order to award a contract for this IT project to Network Cabling Infrastructures Inc. A project is currently underway to replace the corroded 1,000 foot long Fire System standpipe and valve that runs under the length of the pier. The Design-Build Proposal from VSC was approved by the Commission at the November meeting. Procurement is currently having the contract finalized and obtaining a performance bond from VSC after which the Notice To Proceed will be provided. The project is anticipated to start mid-december.

37 Capital Projects Update cont d We have received preliminary construction drawings for the stabilization of the buildings at Old Towne Creek County Park. At the Main House and Caretaker s House, this work will include: replacing the roof material with new shingles or a metal roof, reworking the roof framing, repairing eaves and fascia, replacing the insulation, painting the exterior, mold and mildew remediation, and repairing siding, windows, shutters, and porch framing. The stables will receive repairs to the roofs, siding, and doors. We plan to solicit proposals for this project in January for review at the February Commission Meeting. Cables run the length of the breakwater Encapsulation systems below Based on past history, the temporary epoxy coated cables holding the marina s floating breakwaters together have began to deteriorate and break within 5 years of installation. Eleven of the twelve cables were installed in 2010 and even though they were a little better than previous cables it is time to replace them before we have serious failures. The good news is that the cables have only gone up from $1.98 per foot to $2.15 per foot in over five years time. We are in the process of researching and ordering the materials (cables, encapsulation anchoring systems, etc.) in preparation for replacing the old ones in the first half of 2016.
