Primary Aspects of this project are as follows: S-2, S1A and S2A are three large air handlers that serve a mixture of administrative, clinical space, and patient rooms on the third and fourth floors of the hospital. The units are operating at 100 percent capacity several months of the year. The construction of Correct Patient Privacy project on the 3rd and 4th floors of the hospital will upgrade the ICU, Same-Day Surgery Recovery Unit, and Patient rooms, which will greatly impact the requirements for cooling and heating on the 3rd and 4th floors of the hospital. The designer will be required to install design elements that incorporate a range of technologies to enable a higher efficiency to meet new load demands and a system to increase the level of energy recovery from the currently exhausted system air. AC-2 currently serves OR#3 and OR#4 and a significant amount of adjoining clinic operations space with less stringent HVAC criteria. This unit currently appears to operate at full load continuously and utilizes 100 percent outside air. The accompanying design provides for modifications to allow return air to be used as a precooling or heating source, to increase the efficiency and capacity of the unit. S2 and AC2 are in the elevator penthouse of bldg. 154. S1A and S2A are located in the out board penthouse of bldg. 154 The work will include all associated controls, system piping, insulation, and ductwork upgrades necessary to increase cooling and ventilation efficiency and reduce energy consumption. The exact areas served by systems need to be determined and diagramed. .All units shall be replaced with new air handler. Units shall be established on steel curbs at correct elevation for drainage. This design shall include all aspects of AHU replacement and design. Expansion of mechanical spaces shall be part of this design work as necessary to accommodate new machinery.

DESCRIPTION: This is a Pre-Solicitation Notice for the following services under project number 436-17-104 - Building 141 Heating System at the Fort Harrison Veterans Affairs Medical Center (VAMC) is located at 3687 Veterans Drive, Fort Harrison, MT 59636. THIS ANNOUNCEMENT IS NOT A REQUEST FOR PROPOSAL; NO SOLICITATION PACKAGE WILL BE ISSUED UNTIL AFTER AN EVALUATION HAS BEEN MADE ON THE PROVIDED SF-330s. The SF-330 can be downloaded through the GSA Forms Library at: http://www.gsa.gov/portal/forms/type/TOP, scroll down and locate and click on the SF330 hyperlink entitled, "Architect-Engineer Qualifications." Interested firms should submit their current SF 330, Parts I and II, to joseph.wingfield@va.gov. The SF 330s are due no later than 2:00 p.m. Mountain Time, September 9, 2015. SCOPE OF WORK: The VA Montana Healthcare System requires the services of a qualified Architect / Engineer (A/E) firm to provide design services allowing for the rebuild of existing hydronic plumbing and control of fin-tube perimeter convectors and the connection of hydronic heating water plumbing with heating coils installed in AHUs 1-3 and VAV boxes throughout building 141 at the VA Medical Center at Ft. Harrison MT. Project 436-05-101 Building 141 Air Conditioning saw the replacement of Air handling units and installation of VAV boxes in building 141. Reheat coil plumbing was eliminated from the project due to budgetary concerns. In 2010 a low pressure steam heating system was installed across the campus. This project will expand capacity of the existing steam to hot water heat exchangers and install hydronic plumbing necessary to connect the heating water generation system to reheat coils in the air handling units and VAV boxes. The design of project 436-05-101 was engineered to use the previous 30 psi steam heating system to directly heat coils in AHUs 1-3 and power a shell and tube heat exchanger for VAV hydronic water. The design will have to be updated to accommodate the heating water generation system. Heating coils installed in 2005 will have to be confirmed capable of operating with heating water and new calculations performed to update the design of the heating water delivery system. Building 141 is heated via fin-tube perimeter convectors. Existing control hardware for the convectors in many rooms is inadequate or inoperable and requires installation of new control hardware and piping. The A/E will determine which units are in need of repair and what work is needed to make all units operable. Existing heating water pumps will need the expanded capacity confirmed as well as a redesign of hardware and controls to optimize pump operation. The A/E will update the control of the convector heating system and the AHU and VAV re-heats. Existing VAVs service multiple rooms and there is difficulty moderating heating throughout the zones. The A/E will analyze the system layout and determine critical areas which could use additional VAV boxes or powered unit heaters to better moderate heating and cooling loads such as stairwells and rooms with northeast, southwest, and exterior corner exposures. VAV control programming will need to be coordinated with room thermostats to ensure even and adequate heating across zones. The A/E will evaluate and design improvements for all aspects of the HVAC system including exterior air intake louvers, air handler loads and characteristics, duct sensors, economizer controls, static pressure characteristics, duct leakage, VAV operation, and all physical and DDC controls with the existing Johnson Controls System. All control points of the AHUs and VAVs will be integrated with the JCI graphics and operations system. The air delivery, exhaust and heating water systems shall be tested and balanced as part of the project. Previous projects abandoned in place medium pressure steam piping. The A/E will investigate locations and possible utility of the piping, and if it's determined to be of no use to the VA develop a demolition plan for its removal. The A/E firm will prepare drawings and specifications in sufficient detail such that qualified outside General Contracting companies can prepare accurate and timely proposals for the desired construction work. Microsoft Project scheduling and management software will be used by both the A/E and Contractors to allow for regular tracking of schedules and work by the VAMC. Schedules with MS Project will be regularly sent to the COR upon project initiation and whenever significant changes occur in the schedule. All work must be designed within a construction cost range of between $500,000 and $1,000,000. The A/E will provide an initial itemized construction cost estimate as part of the 30% submission from which the VA may elect potential deducts equivalent to a minimum of 20% of the projected construction cost of the full scope OR expand the scope to fully utilize the anticipated budget. Deducts are expected to be incorporated in a manner that allows for segregation at the Construction Document stage. The cost estimate shall be carried forward and modified to reflect changes on each subsequent submission. The A/E firm is required to submit six submissions of material for preliminary review at the 30%, 50%, 90%, 95%, 100%, and Final Construction Documents - Production stage for review. The Medical Center must remain operational throughout the construction period and a detailed sequence of work will be provided by the A/E to minimize impact of the construction. The A/E will provide documents at each submission as indicated in the statement of work. The NAICS code for this procurement will be 541330, Engineering Services. The current small business size standard for 541330 is $15 million.
