Description: The Memphis VA Medical Center is seeking professional architect/engineering firms to provide all necessary architectural, engineering, and geotechnical services as required to prepare complete contract drawings, specifications, technical reports and cost estimates, including services throughout construction for the project to "Construct Parking Garage on West Lot." It is the intent of the Department of Veterans Affairs to have the A/E fully survey, investigate, and document the existing space and utility systems in order to gain the necessary knowledge and insight necessary to prepare quality, accurate documents in a professional and competent manner. This project will construct a parking garage with up to 525 structured parking spaces on the VA property. An estimated 164 surface parking spaces will be displaced for the garage construction. Temporary offsite parking must be provided during construction to accommodate the number displaced. The net parking gain with the completed garage will be about 361 spaces. The planned location for the construction is on a section of the West Lot, which is a completely paved surface lot on roughly 4.25 acres. It is situated to the west of the hospital and is bounded by the main streets of Poplar Avenue on the north and Pauline Street on the south. At the time of the project application in 2014, there were 435 total parking spaces, with 349 open for patient and visitor parking; 33 spaces reserved for volunteers and restricted with automated gate control; and 43 spaces reserved in accordance with the VA and affiliate university agreement for the resident program. The net parking gain of 361 spaces would bring the total parking on the West Lot to 796 spaces.
