Z--Construct Clinical and Urgent Care Addition 657-351(PB)

Department of Veterans Affairs, VA Heartland Network | Published January 12, 2016  -  Deadline January 27, 2016
cpvs

THIS IS A SOURCES SOUGHT ANNOUNCEMENT. The Department of Veterans Affairs, VA Heartland Network Contracting Office (NCO) 15, intends to issue a solicitation for a construction project, Construct Clinical and Urgent Care Addition, Project Number 657-351, John J. Pershing VA Medical Center in Poplar Bluff, Missouri. This notice is published to conduct market research to determine if there is a sufficient number of certified Service Disabled Veteran Owned Small Businesses (SDVOSB) capable of performing the requirements to warrant a solicitation set-aside. The solicitation will be available on or about March 1st, 2016. If a solicitation is issued, it will be issued as a Request for Proposals (RFP). It will include amendments, if any, and it shall establish the official opening and closing dates and times. This notice is not a Request for Proposal (RFP); it is a market research tool being utilized to determine the availability of sources prior to issuing a Lowest Price Technically Acceptable RFP. The general scope of work is for the proposed addition (approximately 15,600 sf) constructed at the Southeast end of the existing Hospital, and will include interior renovations (approximately 2000 sf) where the addition connects to the Hospital and site and parking improvements. The Clinical Addition is designed as an Ambulatory Healthcare Occupancy per the 2012 NFPA and B Business Classification per the 2012 International Building Code (IBC). The Construction Classification is NFPA Type II (111) and IBC Type IIB. The addition will be fully sprinklered. A landscaped plaza will be created at the new entrance to the Clinical Addition, and an ambulance entrance will be located at the South corner of the facility. Existing surface parking will be renovated to provide a more efficient parking layout integrated with the entrance to the new facility and the existing campus loop road. The lowest level of the Clinical Addition is approximately five feet below the existing Hospital Ground Level, so that an accessible entrance from the East parking lot can be created. The new entrance lobby aligns with the existing Hospital's central corridor. A Police and Campus Security Office, Secured Holding Room and Electrical Room are located adjacent to the Lobby for easy access. The Urgent Care Clinic is located on the opposite side of the Lobby. The Elevator Machine Room and Waiting Rooms are located on the Ground Level of the Clinical Addition. This level aligns with the existing Hospital Basement Floor. Just inside the Hospital on this level, renovations are planned for the Eye Clinic Check-in/Reception and Dispensing and Viewing. The Second Level of the Clinical Addition aligns with the First Floor of the Hospital for access into the existing Primary Care Clinic. On this level, the addition will house Dental Clinic. The building envelope will be architectural precast concrete panels and brick veneer, punch window openings at clinical areas, a glazed curtainwall system at lobbies and entrances and canopies at the entrances. Exterior finish materials have been selected to complement the existing Hospital, and the composition of these materials will create a new identity for this outpatient facility. Power for the Clinical Addition will be fed from Building 20. Lighting within the new building will be provided by LED fixtures. The affected existing light poles in the surface parking lot will be removed and replaced by new fixtures. A mechanical penthouse located on the roof will house the air handling unit serving the addition. One hydraulic elevator will be located inside the Clinical Addition and in line with the existing Hospital central corridor and the entrance to the new Clinics. Space for a future second elevator has been provided as well. The physical security philosophy of the proposed design is based on the VA's Physical Security Design Manual for Mission Critical facilities. This criteria establishes successive lines of defense to protect the facility. The first line of defense exists at the building perimeter, where impact-rated systems at critical locations are coupled with non-rated deterrent systems to control vehicle movement. The next ring of security consists of the building envelope, which is designed to withstand prescribed blast loads and achieve a performance that limits debris and injury hazards. The design is coupled with structural solutions that provide a ductile and redundant structure able to resist progressive collapse through load redistribution should a critical load carrying element be compromised. The final line of defense exists at the building interior where spatial layout and operational security solutions are incorporated to mitigate threats at interior spaces, isolate critical spaces and limit the spread of structural system damage. The estimated performance period is 560 calendar days (90 calendar days for submittals and 470 calendar days for performance) after the Notice to Proceed (NTP) is issued. Location of the work is at the John J. Pershing VA Medical Center in Poplar Bluff, Missouri. Pursuant to 38 USC 8127(d) and in accordance with Public Law 109-461, the Veterans Benefits, Health Care and Information Technology Act of 2006, this construction project is a competitive total set- aside for Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Businesses (SDVOSB).
