Announcement Info :
The County Mayor, Miami-Dade County (County), pursuant to Sections 2-8.1 and 2-8.2.7 of the County Code, and Ordinance 08-92 announces that the County, as represented by the Miami-Dade County Parks, Recreation and Open Spaces Department, is soliciting proposals for a Construction Manager-at-Risk (“CM@Risk”) to provide pre-construction and construction management at-risk services for the Zoo Miami Florida Exhibit. This Request for Proposals (RFP) will evaluate the Proposer’s qualifications for the services set forth in the scope of services, approach to providing the services, a price proposal for the pre-construction phase services and a price-proposal, as a CM multiplier, for the construction management services during the construction phase. The County will request and negotiate at a later date a Guaranteed Maximum Price(s) from the successful Proposer for one or more construction packages for the Zoo Miami Florida Exhibit. The County anticipates awarding a contract for four (4) years from the effective date of the executed Agreement by the parties or until completion of the warranty period, whichever occurs first. This contract period includes the pre-construction services, permitting, design review, construction oversight, closeout and one-year warranty on each of the construction phases/packages. Zoo Miami is located at 12400 SW 152 Street, Miami, Florida. Zoo Miami is owned and operated by Miami-Dade Parks, Recreation and Open Spaces Department. Located on 740 acres, the zoo houses over 100 exhibits, 3 miles of walkways, more than 1,000 species of trees, palms, and other plants, and more than 2,400 animals, representing over 575 species. Due to its unique tropical location in the United States, Zoo Miami is regarded as a pre-eminent tropical and subtropical zoological park. The scope of this solicitation and this project includes the Florida Exhibit and enhancements to the admissions and entry facilities; all elements that were included in the 2002 Zoo Miami master plan. The County seeks a CM@Risk to provide pre-construction and construction services for the Project. The Project will include a new entry to Zoo Miami and the new “Florida: Mission Everglades” Exhibit (“Florida Exhibit”). Designed to give visitors a glimpse of the adventures that lie ahead and a space to contemplate the magnitude of the zoo, the new entryway will progress organically, enabling the visitor to freely explore, lounge and have fun. The new entry will include but not be limited to a ticketing/gift shop/concessions building; a multipurpose building containing offices, restrooms and multipurpose rental spaces; the very popular flamingo exhibit; turnstiles and a shade structure. The Florida Exhibit will be accessed via the main walkway just east of the existing snack bar. The Florida Exhibit will include a series of native species in habitats similar to where they would be found in nature and the design of the animal habitats have taken advantage of the distinctive plant communities of each habitat; coastal estuaries, coastal mangrove forests, the sawgrass prairie, oak hammocks, cypress stand, cabbage palm hammock and pine flatwood. Live animal exhibits are grouped into four zones: Estuarine (wading birds, otters and crocodiles); Discovery Lab (fishes, reptiles and invertebrates); Pinelands (bear, panther and gopher tortoise, armadillo, burrowing owl); and Hammocks (alligators, eagles, bobcat, fox and raccoon). The Florida Exhibit will include but not be limited to live animal exhibits; an entry plaza; life support buildings; a boat ride; indoor air conditioned exhibit building; landscaping; and other related interactive and interpretive signage and elements that will bring the exhibit to life for all of Zoo Miami’s visitors to explore and enjoy. All proposed Project-related improvements have taken into consideration the existing Zoo Miami facilities and thoughtful integration of the Project improvements into Zoo Miami in order to minimize the disruption and impact to onsite and neighboring infrastructure and environment. During construction, the CM@Risk shall exercise similar care in its selected means and methods to successfully achieve these precise objectives. The CM@Risk will provide a dedicated team to perform the requested pre-construction and construction management services, all as more specifically set forth in the attached draft Agreement. The Owner anticipates that several Guaranteed Maximum Price construction packages (“GMP”) will be developed and negotiated based on phasing, permit packages and the schedule will be negotiated including, but not limited to a Temporary Entry; the New Zoo Entry; the Bike and Concession Area; and the Florida Exhibit Area. This represents the Owner’s current assessment of project phasing and may change to fewer or more GMP’s as may be deemed necessary. The GMP’s will be cumulative, leading to a final GMP for the entire scope of the project. A general description of the types of services to be provided is set forth below. A. Pre-Construction Phase Services Pre-construction services provided by the CM@Risk will include but not be limited to: • Review and advise on project scope of work, description and development information provided by the Owner, Architects and Engineers • Review of design plans • Perform a constructability review of the construction documents and report findings • Review cost and time estimates prepared by the architects and engineers in order to validate and report findings • Prepare cost and time estimates, to include clarifications, basis of estimate, allowances, and exclusions • Value engineering • Prepare scheduling for each of the GMP construction packages, including preliminary and final project construction schedules indicating major construction milestones and variances • Prepare phasing schemes for each of the GMP construction packages which address the site logistics, operational needs of Zoo Miami, scope and budget The CM@Risk is to provide a detailed proposal as to how it will approach and perform the scope of services for the pre-construction phase as part of its Request for Proposal (RFP) submittal for evaluation by the Selection Committee. The CM@Risk will be paid a lump-sum amount for the provision of all of the pre-construction services. B. Construction Phase Services The CM@Risk will perform construction management services during the construction phase of the Project, all as more specifically set forth in the attached draft Agreement. Generally, construction management services provided by the CM@Risk during the construction phase of the Project will include, but not be limited to estimating; scheduling; construction and/or construction management of site work and utilities, buildings, landscaping, specialized attraction theming, life support systems, interactive elements; and other work as necessary to complete the intended scope. The CM@Risk is to provide a detailed proposal as to how it will approach and perform the scope of services for the construction phase as part of its Request for Proposal (RFP) submittal for evaluation by the Selection Committee. The CM Multiplier Fee payments for the provision of construction services to the CM@Risk will be based on the GMP Balance at the time each payment requisition is submitted, as more specifically set forth in the draft Agreement.
