The Department of General Services ("Department" or "DGS") is issuing this Request for Proposals to engage multiple contractors to serve as the construction managers (each, a "Construction Manager") for short term family housing facilities (the "Project") located in Wards 3, 5, and 6.
During the Preconstruction Phase, the Construction Manager shall work with the Architect to advance the design in a collaborative manner consistent with the Department's schedule, budget, programmatic and other requirements for the Project. The Construction Manager will be required to actively participate in the design process by providing cost estimating, scheduling and perform constructability reviews as the design progresses, and identifying long-lead purchase items. The Department envisions that the Architect will be preparing the design development documents for the Project at the time the Construction Manager is engaged. The Construction Manager will be required to work with the Architect in the completion of the design development
documents and the construction documents.
After the establishment of the guaranteed maximum price (GMP), the Construction Manager will be required to complete construction phase including the design and implementation of the approved drawings, providing all labor, materials, supervision and other services as may be necessary to accomplish managing the construction process and coordinating the efforts of the Architect and builder through the process.
