    The University of Florida Board of Trustees, announces that construction management services will be required for the project listed below:

    Project No.: UAA-18

    Project Name and Location: South West Stadium Expansion, Gainesville, Florida.

    The project consists of approximately the construction of additional new 31,332 (GSF) and the renovation of existing 18,380 (GSF) of offices, meeting rooms, weight room, Interactive Exhibition/Reception area, Gator Room, and support space for the University of Florida’s Football Program. The new addition to the stadium must fit contextually with adjacent facilities while also conveying a prominent sense of arrival. This addition to the South West corner of the stadium will serve as a focal point for one of the main intersections on campus, Gale Lemerand Drive and Stadium Road, and the main entrance for the Football Program at the stadium. The project will balance the need to create a facility that clearly conveys a sense of importance, arrival, ease of access and inviting architecture to the new addition with a prominent street-level entry, as well as incorporating into the existing physical facility ease of access to the various spaces and the stadium. This project is not a stadium seating or field expansion. The estimated construction cost is $12,000,000.00.

    The contract for construction management services will consist of two phases. Phase I is pre-construction services, for which the construction manager will be paid a fixed fee. Phase I services include value engineering, constructability analyses, development of a cost model, estimating, and the development of a Guaranteed Maximum Price (GMP) at 100% Construction Document phase. If the GMP is accepted, phase II, the construction phase, will be implemented. In phase II of the contract, the construction manager becomes the single point of responsibility for performance of the construction of the project and shall publicly bid trade contracts. Failure to negotiate an acceptable fixed fee for phase I of the contract, or to arrive at an acceptable GMP within the time provided in the agreement may result in the termination of the construction manager's contract. Selection of finalists for interviews will be made on the basis of construction manager qualifications, including experience and ability; past experience; bonding capacity; record-keeping/administrative ability, critical path scheduling expertise; cost estimating; cost control ability; quality control capability; and qualification of the firm's personnel, staff and consultants. Finalists will be provided with a copy of the building program and the latest documentation prepared by the project architect/engineer, a deion of the final interview requirements and a copy of the standard University of Florida construction management agreement. The Selection Committee may reject all proposals and stop the selection process at any time. The construction manager shall have no ownership, entrepreneurial or financial affiliation with the selected architect/engineer involved with this project.

    Firms desiring to provide construction management services for the project shall submit a letter of application and a completed project specific “Construction Manager Qualifications Supplement” available from the website: Proposals must not exceed 40 pages, including the Construction Manager Qualifications Supplement and letter of application. Pages must be numbered consecutively. Submittals that do not comply with these requirements or do not include the requested data will not be considered. No submittal material will be returned. All applicants must be licensed to practice as general contractors in the State of Florida at the time of application. Corporations must be registered to operate in the State of Florida by the Department of State, Division of Corporations, at the time of application. As required by Section 287.133, Florida Statutes, a construction management firm may not submit a proposal for this project if it is on the convicted vendor list for a public entity crime committed within the past 36 months. The selected construction management firm must warrant that it will neither utilize the services of, nor contract with, any supplier, subcontractor, or consultant in excess of $15,000.00 in connection with this project for a period of 36 months from the date of their being placed on the convicted vendor list.
