Repair of an existing roof, repair/replacement of south windows, and a new Americans with Disabilities Act accessible ramp and entrance into the building is also included in the scope. Construction of this phase is anticipated to be funded by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act and administered through the Department of Energy and established guidelines will apply.
A final floorplan will be selected by the Capital Improvements Management Office. The design professional should be able to produce a set of AutoCad Construction Documents, as well as specifications for bidding and contracting, submit construction documents to the City for review and approval to obtain a building permit, and provide construction administration and coordination with other City vendors at the project site.
