Contract No. 971-030 was awarded to Furfari Construction Co. Limited on September 3, 1997
for the tendered amount of $966,683.48.
This work was for the reconstruction of the above streets including sidewalk repair. The

firm of Proctor & Redfern Limited.
The total cost of all work associated with this project, including consultant fees, is
approximately $1,262.000.00. The breakdown is as follows:

Engineering Fee and Testing$ 160,828.15
There is sufficient funding available in the contract accounts for this project.
The final cost of the tendered items, as stated above, is $1,101,184.20 which exceeds the
tendered amount by $134,500.72 or 13.91%. The former City of North York's Council policy
required the Management Committee's approval for contract payments which exceeded the
tendered amount by more than 5%.
The cost overun in the value of the contract is attributed to the actual measured quantities
exceeding the estimated tendered quantities in the following areas:
repair of concrete sidewalks,
removal of existing asphalt surface by grinding,
excavation of poor sub-base in the roadway,
supply of crushed limestone aggregates for the poor sub-base areas of the roadway,
