Responses due: April 5, 2016 @ 2:00 pm
Notice is hereby given that the City of Albany (City), Oregon, is requesting Statement of Qualifications (SOQ) from qualified General Construction (GC) firms for the construction of the Police and Fire Facility Project, referred to as the “Project”. The Project is to be built concurrently at two different sites in Albany. The buildings are designed by Mackenzie and the overall square foot requirement for the proposed Police Station is approximately 40,400 and the Fire Station is approximately 24,300. The goal is to use similar materials and timelines to receive economies of scale. The objective is to prequalify construction contractors and invite those Contractors selected as the Competitive Range to submit sealed bids for the Project. The estimated combined construction cost of the two facilities is $20.4 million at the 90% design phase. The estimated construction cost is $13.2 million for the Police Station and $7.2 million for the Fire Station.
The RFQu is the initial step in the selection process to retain a GC to construct the Police and Fire Facilities in Albany, Oregon. Responses will be reviewed, scored, and ranked according to the criteria defined in this solicitation document. A maximum of five qualified contractors will be invited to respond to the Invitation to Bid (ITB) in accordance with OAR 137-049-0645. The City may increase the number of qualified Respondents in the Competitive Range if the City’s evaluation indicates a natural break in the scores that are closely competitive.
