This will include everything from supply, labor force, weather and seismic conditions, to the local construction climate's impact on cost estimating.  There will also be consideration given to how key team members can conduct pre-design site review of the proposed work without incurring extra cost to the government for travel.

In this context, GSA announces an opportunity for Design Excellence in public architecture for performance of architectural/engineering design for a new United States Courthouse, located in Greenville MS, in accordance with GSA quality standards and requirements.  As required by law, all facilities will meet federal energy goals and security requirements and the facility will be designed to achieve a LEED V4 Gold certification with landscaping designed to achieve a SITES Silver certification.

PROJECT DESCRIPTION C - The project is a new United States Courthouse, located in Greenville, MS.  The building will be located in the historic downtown of Greenville, MS.  The new Courthouse will meet the long term space needs of the Courts, while also addressing security and circulation deficiencies that currently exist in the current Federal Building-Post Office-Courthouse.
This project will be an anchor for revitalization and future development in the Central Business District, be compatible with the character of the historic district, and its design should reflect the dignity, enterprise, vigor and stability of the Federal Government.  The new building will be approximately 62,000 gross square feet (GSF), including 17 inside parking spaces.  The new Courthouse will provide a total of two (2) courtrooms - one (1) District, and one (1) Magistrate courtrooms.  The Project will provide space for the United States Circuit, District and Magistrate Courts, United States Marshals Service, United States Probation Office, Federal Public Defender, United States Attorney's Office, and GSA's Public Buildings Service.  The Estimated Construction Cost range is approximately $25 to $30 million.  GSA may contract separately during the design phase for Construction Manager as Agent (CMa) and Construction Manager as Constructor (CMc) services.  The CMa and CMc will be involved in the design process to provide administrative functions, construction expertise, estimating services, building information modeling coordination, and both drawing-based and model-based functionality / constructability reviews. There will be a formal partnering process throughout the design and construction phases to promote successful project development and execution through integrated delivery of the project to accomplish established agreed-upon project objectives by all involved parties to their mutual benefit.
SCOPE OF WORK The scope of professional services for the new United States Courthouse in Greenville MS will require at a minimum: professional architectural, landscape architectural, engineering, interior design and related consulting services to produce concept, design development and construction documents, specifications, cost estimates, schedules, value engineering services, life cycle costing, space planning, building information modeling (BIM) and construction phase services for a facility that includes the construction of a new building with related systems, inside parking, site development, client program requirements, and sustainable high performance green building (HPGB) systems and features.  The Courthouse must be designed to meet the energy goal established by GSA, and will be designed to achieve LEED V4 Gold certification with landscaping designed to achieve a SITES Silver certification.  It will incorporate independent total building commissioning as defined by GSA design guides.  The project is also to include GSA design standards for secure facilities; conformance to the P100 (Facility Standards for Public Buildings), customer agency requirements include the Courts Design Guide and Publication 64, and certification through the United States Green Building Council (USGBC).
