Brookline Housing Authority (BHA) Request for Proposals for Architectural & Engineering Services

The BHA seeks one or more qualified A&E firms to provide design services for the substantial rehab of 4 elderly, mid-rise public housing properties with a total of 339 units. The buildings will be rehabbed with residents in-place and will likely be subject to MGL Ch. 149, Building Construction Contracts.

It is expected that financing for the first property will close by November 30, 2018 with construction to begin shortly thereafter. The second property is expected to close in Spring 2019. Respondents must be prepared to meet these timelines.

The initial term of contract(s) will be three years, renewable at the sole discretion of the BHA by one two-year period. The total contract period shall not exceed five years plus any additional time necessary to complete construction administration for projects awarded in the first three-year period, and/or two-year extension.

Each respondent must submit one (1) signed original and three copies of its proposal. In addition to the hard copies, respondents must submit one exact copy of the proposal on a flash drive in Microsoft Office (2010 version or later) or Adobe PDF format. The original signed hard copy must be clearly labeled as such. If there are any differences between the original and any of the copies (or the electronic copy of the Proposal), the material in the hard copy original will prevail. The proposal must be submitted no later than 4 pm on March 22, 2018. Proposals received after this deadline will not be accepted. Proposals should be delivered to:
