Administration Building
The Rabun County Government (the Client) requests Proposals from Construction Management at Risk (CMAR)firms for the construction of an addition to the Rabun County Jail with a Sheriffs Administration Building. Upon completion of a review of proposals received, the Client anticipates awarding a contract for pre-construction services, and, at the Client's discretion, a subsequent contract for construction of the project.

The Client requires construction of an addition to the existing Rabun County Jail to include the following: Inmate Housing -48 beds, Medical Unit, Special Management Cells, Housing Control Tower, Future Inmate Housing Expansion (shelled in), 6,000 SF attached Sheriff's Administration Building.
The Client is considering the services of a Construction Manager at Risk (CMAR) firm to manage the construction, provide technical review during the pre-construction period, and provide cost evaluation assistance to the architectural team. The CMAR will assume responsibility for project construction cost by issuing a guaranteed maximum price (GMP). The GMP will be a contractual obligation. The CMAR will also develop an overall final project schedule, which will be a contractual obligation. In addition, the CMAR will be responsible for methods of construction, safety, and the scheduling and coordination of the work of all construction and miscellaneous contracts required for completion of the project within its established budget and schedule. The project is currently in the Schematic Design Phase. The successful CMAR will be expected to work closely with the Architect, Precision Planning, Inc. to develop final design documents and separate bid packages if required.
Project Objectives:
The CMAR will be responsible for pricing, value engineering, and maintainability and constructability issues. When the design documents for the project have been developed in sufficient detail, the CMAR, with the support and assistance of the Architect, will commit to a Guaranteed Maximum Price (GMP) for all construction and site development. If the Client requests multiple bid packages, construction wHI commence with the issuance of the first bid package while remaining bid packages are being finalized. The CMAR shall competitively select construction subcontracts and other work appropriate for competitive selection using cost and other factors. The successful CMAR may perform work with his own forces, but shall not be eligible toenter into contract or subcontract for any of the construction or other services of any nature on the project without the specific approval of the Client.
In selecting a firm, the Client will place emphasis on experience of the firm and assigned personnel in CMAR contracts for jail/correctional/public safety facilities, including detailed knowledge of the detention equipment industry. Emphasis will also be placed on firms having depth, knowledge, and resources in principles of contracting, scheduling, contract coordination and compliance, budget control, familiarity with State and local laws, ordinances and codes as demonstrated by prior experience, and strategies for encouraged participation by local companies and laborers.
