DCAM-16-CS-0084 RFP- St. Elizabeth Phase 1 Documentation


Friday, February 12, 2016

The Department of General Services (“Department” or “DGS”) is issuing this Request for Proposals to engage a Design/Build Contractor team to complete the 100% plans and construction documents and construct the Stage 1 Phase 1 Transportation and Infrastructure Improvements project at 1100 Alabama Avenue, SE, Washington DC.  The Department has already engaged CH2M (the “Engineer”) to serve as the engineer for the project, and intermediate (65%) design has been prepared.  The following Project documents are attached hereto as Attachment A: Contract Data and Reports, and Reference Information Documents. Further contract related documents are attached hereto as Attachment B:  Form of Agreement; and Attachment C: Technical Provisions.  All of these documents contain important information related to this RFP.  The Department intends to assign the Engineer’s contract to the successful Offeror upon award and from that point on the successful Offeror will be responsible for both the design and construction of the Infrastructure Improvements.
 
St. Elizabeths East Campus is owned by the District of Columbia.  The Property has an approved master plan and zoning for over 5 Million square feet of development consisting of proposed new buildings and the adaptive reuse of historic buildings.   To assist in achieving the redevelopment of the East Campus, the Deputy Mayor for Planning & Economic Development (DMPED) prepared a master development plan, concept infrastructure plan, and subsequently procured engineering services from CH2M to develop preliminary (30%) plans to District Department of Transportation (DDOT) standards, completed in November 2013 for stage 1 of the infrastructure improvements.  DGS has since had CH2M develop intermediate (65%) plans for the Stage 1 Phase 1 infrastructure improvements, dated February 5, 2016.
 
The redevelopment effort is now transitioning from the Master Planning and the Zoning stage into an implementation phase, and the District is engaged with a Phase 1 Real Estate Development partner, as well as working closely with partner agencies to complete critical site transportation and utility infrastructure to support the Campus redevelopment plan. At this time DMPED is working with the District Department of General Services (DGS) to have DGS lead the final design and construction procurement for the stage 1 phase 1 infrastructure improvements.  Among other things, the District has entered into a letter of intent with Monumental Sports & Entertainment pursuant to which an Entertainment and Sports facility will be constructed on parcels 9 and 12 of the East Campus.  That facility is intended to be substantially completed no later than July 31, 2018.  Subject to the terms of the final agreement between the Department and the successful Offeror, substantial liquidated damages will be assessed if the Infrastructure Improvements are not substantially completed by that date.
 
The subsequent sections of this solicitation outline the design-build work involved to develop the infrastructure plans from the current intermediate (65%) level state of completion through the construction and final completion of the stage 1 phase 1 infrastructure improvements.
 
The Department’s anticipated cost range for the project, including hard and soft costs, is approximately $45 Million.
