     The Florida Atlantic University Board of Trustees announces that Professional Services in the discipline of Construction Management will be required for minor projects.

    Project (s):  Construction Minor Projects

    Project (s) Location:  All Florida Atlantic University Campuses and Sites

    The construction manager will be a single point of responsibility for performance of multiple construction contracts up to $2,000,000.00 individually, functioning as an independent contractor, publicly bidding trade contracts. Up to ten construction management contracts may be awarded, for an initial period of one year with an option to renew for two additional one year extensions.

    Typical projects assigned under this contract may include new construction, renovation, remodeling, reroofing and other building maintenance, equipment installation, asbestos abatement, and fire code corrections.  Areas requiring renovation or remodeling may include research and teaching laboratories, classrooms, library and media centers, offices and related functions, reception and waiting areas, lobbies and corridors, atriums, courtyards and plazas, modular and pre-engineered buildings, athletic facilities, and associated roadways, sitework, sidewalks, and landscaping. Projects could be located on any of Florida Atlantic University’s Campuses, special purpose centers/sites, and instructional sites. The maximum per-project construction cost is $2,000,000. Given the magnitude of projects with construction costs less than $500,000, businesses specializing in delivering small size projects are encouraged to apply.

    Selection of finalists for interview will be made on the basis of Construction Manager qualifications including experience and ability; record keeping; project administration; scheduling; cost estimating; cost control; quality

    control; and qualification of the firm’s personnel.  Finalists will be provided with a copy of a list of the final interview evaluation criteria, and a copy of the standard Florida Atlantic University construction manager agreement for minor projects.  The final ranking for each category shall be determined based on the oral presentation and references.

    The selection committee may reject all proposals and stop the selection process at any time.
