The following are the questions asked by potential proposers:
What is the budget? The total project budget is $4 million.
What is the start and end date? The project is to be built in 2024.
What is the square footage? Based on the Ayres plan, the schematic in the RFP is approximately 60’ x 144’.
The facilities study indicates the recommendation for the buildings to be LEED certified, is that the intention for this proposal? WE DO NOT REQUIRE IT TO BE LEED CERTIFIED, BUT WE PREFER IT TO BE LEED CERTIFIED. WE NEED TO BE CONSCIOUS OF OUR ENERGY COSTS.
Is the cold storage proposed noted in the RFP going to be an addition to the maintenance building plan or a separate building as shown in the facilities study, page 61? IT WOULD BE AN ADDITION, AS INDICATED IN THE RFP.
Is the intention for construction of the Maintenance Building to be a metal building with cladding to incorporate the village architectural characteristics or a different construction method? WE DO NOT ALLOW METAL BUILDINGS; HOWEVER, INSULATED METAL PANELS ARE ALLOWED (I DON’T THE NAME OF THE ‘INSULATED PANELS’ PRODUCT).
The RFP sites the proposed building much further north than the two options presented in the study. What is the anticipated vehicular access path to get to the storage facility? THE LOCATION IS APPROXIMATE, AND IS AS SHOWN IN THE RFP, NOT THE FACILITIES PLAN. TRUCKS ENTER OFF AUTUMN COURT AND PULL INTO AND THROUGH THE BUILDING, DRIVE WEST AROUND THE BUILDING BACK TO THE ACCESS OFF AUTUMN COURT.
How much exterior site storage area is required? And what types of materials would be stored outside of the main building (i.e. salt)? WE NEED 5 BLOCK STORAGE BUNKER (EA HOLDS 40 YARDS MATERIAL, 12’ WIDE)
Should the topographic survey be included in the design team’s scope? NO.
If the geotechnical report deems the fill in the pond to be non- buildable or require additional excavation or deeper foundations is there an alternate site or should structural engineering design scope accommodate a worst-case scenario? Would you like this to be an alternate or base bid? IF THE SITE IS UNSUITABLE, WE’LL REBUILD IN THE VICINITY OF THE CURRENT BUILDING, WHICH IS TO THE WEST. THAT SITE WAS NOT FILLED IN AND IS STABLE.
The study mentioned the need for exterior storage bins for mulch or soils – is this structure part of the project scope? ADDRESSED ABOVE. IT WAS NOT A REQUIREMENT OF THE SCOPE, BUT PROVIDED SO THE ARCHITECT UNDERSTANDS THEY WILL BE ONSITE.
Would you be able to let us know how many soil borings would be needed for the design of the building? … and to what depth? GOOD QUESTION! I REALLY DON’T KNOW IN THAT WE DO NOT HAVE AN ENGINEER OR ARCHITECT ON STAFF. I WOULD THINK WE NEED A BORING AT EACH CORNER, SO POSSIBLY 6, AND I’M ASSUMING DEEPER THAN THE FROST FOOTING, BUT I HONESTLY DON’T KNOW THE DEPTH TO DETERMINE A BUILDING’S STABILITY.
Should civil site design be included in the proposal? NO, CSD WILL BE PROVIDED BY THE CONTRACTOR HIRED TO BUILD THE FACILITY.
