Boston, MA

The Commonwealth of Massachusetts, through its Division of Capital Asset Management & Maintenance (DCAMM), requests that qualified and experienced firms submit a Statement of Qualifications and required information to the DCAMM Bid Room no later than 2:00 PM, Wednesday, May 31, 2017.

Firms interested in providing Public Construction Manager at Risk Services (“CM” or “CM at Risk”) for the Massachusetts State Police Lower Basin Barracks are invited to submit a Statement of Qualifications (“SOQ”) to the Division of Capital Asset Management & Maintenance (“DCAMM”). This CM at Risk procurement is conducted pursuant to M.G.L. 149A, contained in Chapter 193 of the Acts of 2004. This Request for Qualifications (“RFQ”) is the first phase of a two-phase procurement process as set forth in M.G.L. 149A. DCAMM is prequalifying firms interested in providing public CM at Risk services for the project through the RFQ process. DCAMM will evaluate submitted SOQs based upon the identified evaluation criteria as set forth in the RFQ and will select those respondents it deems qualified. Only those respondents deemed qualified will be invited to submit a proposal in response to a detailed Request for Proposals (“RFP”), which will be issued in the second phase of the procurement process. The project delivery method for construction will be public CM at Risk with a Guaranteed Maximum Price (“GMP”) under M.G.L. 149A.

In addition, firms interested in being prequalified must demonstrate that they have had prior experience as a Construction Manager on at least three CM-at-Risk projects and have completed at least one project of a similar cost, complexity, type and size as this project as it is described further below and in the RFQ. Prior experience on at least one complex laboratory project that included the construction of a Biosafety Level Three (BSL3) laboratory as well as prior experience on at least one large, complex phased renovation project that remained occupied and fully operational 24/7/365 throughout construction are also required. The prior CM-at-Risk projects must have been completed within the last ten (10) years.

At the time a CM firm submits the Qualifications Statement, it must have a DCAMM Certification in the Contractor Category, “General Building Construction”, with a single limit greater than the Estimated Total Project cost of $56,271,000. See www.mass.gov/dcam/certification for certification forms and the required Update Form.

The project involves a phased renovation of an approximately 208,000 GSF, eight-story plus basement building that contains laboratory, administrative and research space. The building will remain occupied throughout construction and remain 24/7/365 operational. The project also includes the demolition of the Biologics Building, which sits adjacent to the Tower Building and is connected to it via a bridge. This is a two-story plus basement building of approximately 34,000 GSF.

The Request for Qualifications may be downloaded from http://www.commbuys.com or DCAMM’s E Bid Room at https://www.bidexpress.com/businesses/10279/home on or after Wednesday, May 3, 2017.
