The Government's obligation under this contract is contingent upon the availability of appropriated funds from which payment for contract purposes can be made. No legal liability on the part of the Government for any payment may arise until funds are made available to the Contracting Officer for this contract and until the Contractor receives notice of such availability, to be confirmed in writing by the Contracting Officer. (End of clause) Through the modernization of a federal building, this project continues the legacy of outstanding public architecture. In accordance with this tradition, the General Services Administration (GSA) Design Excellence Program seeks to commission our nation's most talented designers and engineers to prepare our federal buildings utilizing outstanding quality and value. These projects are to demonstrate the value of true integrated design that balances aesthetics, cost, constructability, and reliability; creates environmentally responsible and superior workplaces for civilian federal employees; and gives public expression to our democratic values. In this context, GSA announces an opportunity for Design Excellence in public architecture for performance of architectural/engineering (A/E) design in accordance with GSA quality standards and requirements. As required by law, all facilities will meet federal energy goals and security requirements. PROJECT DESCRIPTION The subject building located at 985 Michigan Avenue, in Detroit, Michigan, was constructed in 1995 as a build-to-suit lease location for the Internal Revenue Service. U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) has executed a purchase option, with transfer of ownership scheduled for April 2015. The office building is 10-stories above grade with a basement. The majority of the mechanical equipment is housed in a 3-story structure adjacent to the building. The building has a 10-story parking garage with approximately 850 spaces. The asset is 20 years old and many systems are approaching the end of their useful lives and are inefficient. Upgrades to the building's infrastructure are required to extend the asset's service life, reduce energy consumption and operating expenses, and ensure long-term occupancy of federal tenants. GSA proposes to renovate the 985 Michigan Avenue building to extend the asset's useful life and consolidate federal agencies in Detroit, MI. Renovation of the building systems includes energy savings improvements to the HVAC systems, repairs to the passenger and freight elevators, replacement of the roof, repairs to the building's windows and façade, replacement of the fire alarm and sprinkler systems, repairs to the plumbing system and public restrooms, improvements to the electrical infrastructure, and repairs to the parking garage and site. The project will also reconfigure space for federal agencies currently housed at this location and backfill the remaining space with other federal agencies located in leased space. GSA anticipates using a CMc delivery method for construction of this design. SCOPE OF WORK The scope of professional services will require at a minimum: professional architectural, engineering, interior design, and related consulting services for concept design documents, design development documents, construction documents, specifications, cost estimates, value engineering services, computer-aided design and drafting (CADD), and post-construction contract services (PCCS) for the modernization and alteration of this 20 year old facility. The project is also to include GSA design standards for secure facilities; conformance to the P-100 (Facility Standards for Public Buildings) and customer agency requirements. The project will be designed in one package incorporating the entire scope. The construction may be accomplished utilizing phasing to coincide with the requirements of the impacted federal agencies.
