In ccordance with Massachusetts General Laws, Chapter 149A, Sections 1 thru 13, Massport is seeking a highly qualified and competent Construction Manager (CM) to provide preconstruction services and implement the construction of the Project in accordance with an agreement where basis for payment is the cost of the work plus a fee with a negotiated guaranteed maximum price. This Request for Qualifications (RFQ) is being utilized to prequalify and shortlist CM firms who will be invited to submit proposals in response to a Request for Proposals (RFP) to be issued by Massport. PROJECT DESCRIPTION AND SCOPE OF SERVICES The proposed project includes construction of post security concourses between Terminal C (at Pier B) and Terminal E, and between Terminal C from Pier C to Pier D, including improvements to Terminal C at hold rooms, concessions, toilets and concourse. This post-security connectivity will allow customers to have seamless access to all Terminal C gates; therefore, any gate changes or connecting passengers can move behind security to all 24 gates. This project will also allow certain pre-cleared international arriving passengers to connect to departures from Terminal C and allow all arriving passengers to connect to international departures at Terminal E. The project will incorporate sustainable design elements. The work includes general site and interior preparation, foundations, utility relocations, construction phasing and sequencing, walkway structures, architecture, pedestrian circulation/wayfinding, means of egress, signage/graphics, stairs, elevators, escalators, ADA and code compliance, HVAC, plumbing, fire protection, electrical, lighting, power, security, and other systems and facilities required by existing codes and regulations and necessary to achieve a complete functional facility. Construction of the new work will also impact existing facilities and also existing ramp activity and it is essential that the work be designed and constructed in such a manner that all required operations and ramp activity will be maintained with no permanent obstructions to current and future ramp activity. Massport recognizes the numerous benefits Building Information Modeling (BIM), Models and Model Applications can potentially provide to each phase of the facility life cycle. In an effort to realize the added value of these benefits, Massport is implementing a Building Information Modeling (BIM) Program for this project. In addition, to further improve efficiency and value on this project, Massport will also be implementing Lean Construction principles, including Pull Planning and other Lean process tools. In addition to the construction services, the CM shall also provide Preconstruction Services which shall include, but are not limited to, cost estimating, scheduling, phasing and logistics, value engineering, document review to support the preparation of trade packages and constructability reviews. The CM shall be expected to work closely with Massport's team including its Project Manager and design team in order to effectively implement the project. The construction budget is estimated at approximately Forty Million Dollars ($40,000,000) with an estimated date of beneficial occupancy within the second quarter of 2015. SELECTION PROCESS Mat.sport intends to implement a two-step selection process including a Qualification phase and a Proposal phase. At the Qualifications phase, the Prequalification Committee will conduct a qualifications- based evaluation of interested CM firms in order to create a shortlist of competent CM firms. Shortlisted firms shall be invited to respond to a written RFP which will require both a technical proposal and a price proposal. A Selection Committee will review Proposals in order to rank the shortlisted firms and make the final selection.
