Request for Proposals (RFP)
For Construction Manager at Risk (CMAR) Services for
Rabun County Sheriffs
Administration Building
The Rabun County Government (the Client) requests Proposals from Construction Management at Risk (CMAR) firms for the construction of a new Rabun County Sheriff's 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 new facility.
Purpose:
The Client requires construction of a new single story 6,000 SF Sheriff's Administration Building to be located in Clayton, Georgia on property owned by the Client across from the existing Rabun County Jail. 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 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 will 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 to enter 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 public safety facilities. 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.
Proposal Process:
All written Proposals shall utilize the attached forms. Three (3) hard copies of the completed package shall be prepared and delivered in sealed envelopes to the attention of:
Mr. Darrin Giles, County Administrator Rabun County Government
25 Courthouse Square, Suite 201
Clayton, GA 30525
In addition, an electronic PDF copy of the completed package shall be prepared and e-mailed to Liz Hudson, AIA at Precision Planning, Inc.
