REQUEST FOR STATEMENTS OF QUALIFICATIONS
RFQ# CDCM 2018-01
ADA Pre-Design and Estimating Services

Submittals due by 2:00 p.m. PST, March 22, 2018

The City of Seattle Department of Finance and Administrative Services (FAS), Capital Development and Construction Management (CDCM) division seeks a consultant to provide pre-design and planning services for previously identified ADA deficiencies. Services will not design the projects, but rather plan and estimate the most efficient way of executing those projects in the future. The City of Seattle is continuing an effort of improving access in accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), Title II, to and within all Cityowned properties. FAS has a building portfolio consisting of approximately 100 buildings across city limits that includes the Seattle Municipal Tower, City Hall and Justice Center, fire stations, police precinct stations, several maintenance shop yards and facilities and other miscellaneous buildings. CDCM anticipates selecting one consultant and executing one contract for the work. While the contract is anticipated to be below the threshold requiring a Consultant Inclusion Plan, qualified minority- and women-owned business are strongly encouraged to submit.

The intent of this pre-design effort by both staff and consultant is to investigate alternatives and assess solutions and corresponding costs for the eventual execution of the projects. The consultant would prepare a “road map” of project packaging recommendations to aid FAS in determining priorities, cost estimates and schedules to help prepare FAS for design and construction on ADA-related projects beginning in 2019 and beyond. The pre-design will also develop reporting methods and platform, using a database to track individual surveyed items for progress and completion. The consultant selected for this contract would not be precluded from submitting in the future for design of specific ADA projects.
