Arquitectonica International Corp. 3.2

Kimley-Horn and Associates 3.6

EXPLANATION: The Notice to Professional Consultants (NTPC) was issued on April 24, 2014 and proposals from nine firms were received on June 6, 2014. The Selection Committee met on August 26, 2014 to rank the submittals and recommended to negotiate with the top-ranked firm. The Negotiation Committee met three times with the top-ranked firm, Arquitectonica International Corporation (Consultant), on October 27, November 13, and December 3, 2014. As a result of the negotiation meetings, the Consultant reduced their cost proposal from a maximum cost of $2,762,549.00 to $1,998,800.00 for the basic services fee (not including contingency and reimbursable expenses). The final negotiated cost is slightly higher than the estimated cost of the work ($1,950,000.00) but deemed by the Negotiation Committee to be reasonable based on unknown elements of the project such as the structural integrity of the existing structure and the level of effort necessary to address the existing conditions. The Negotiation Committee recommended awarding the PSA to the Consultant on December 3, 2014.
