Draft Statement of Work HHS-NIH-ORF-AECCB-SBSS-10-001 Notice Type: Sources Sought Amendment Synopsis: This Small Business Sources Sought Notice (HHS-NIH-ORF-AECCB-SBSS-10-001) is hereby amended to change the title, clarify the Construction Manager as Constructor (CMc) Scope of Services, and clarify the submission requirements of the Statements of Qualifications. Paragraphs (4) and (5) are expanded to include more specific information regarding: •the organization structure including Key Personnel information; and •the relevant experience in providing specific CMc services for successfully delivering biomedical facilities of the size and scope similar to the renovation of Building 10 F Wing on the NIH campus in Bethesda, Maryland. Task B of this project is being funded by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) and will stress energy efficient buildings and sustainable design and construction that optimize energy performance, employ integrated design principles and controls, protect and conserve water, enhance indoor environmental quality, and reduce environmental impact of materials. The contract vehicle for this service is a Firm Fixed Price Indefinite Deliver Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contract. This procurement will cover duration of a two (2) year base and three (3) one (1) year option periods for a total of five (5) years, and the total contract award value inclusive of all option years will not exceed $190M. The Government intends to award one (1) IDIQ contract with a minimum guarantee of $2,500.00 inclusive of all five (5) years. This is a Small Business Sources Sought notice. Teaming Agreements are encouraged. This is NOT a solicitation for proposals, proposal abstracts, or quotations. The purpose of this notice is to obtain information regarding: (1) the availability and capability of qualified small business sources; (2) whether they are small businesses; HUB Zone small businesses; service-disabled, veteran-owned small businesses; 8(a) small businesses; veteran-owned small businesses; woman-owned small businesses; or small disadvantaged businesses; and (3) their size classification relative to the North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) code 236220 – Commercial and Institutional Building Construction for the proposed acquisition. The Small Business Size is $33.5 million. Your responses to the information requested will assist the Government in determining the appropriate acquisition strategy, including whether a set-aside is possible. An organization that is not considered a small business concern under the applicable NAICS code should not submit a response to this notice. NIH will not review any submittal received from an organization that is not a small business concern. Project Description and Scope As a part of the U.S. Public Health Service under the Department of Health and Human Services, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) is the Federal Government’s primary biomedical research agency. Its mission is science in pursuit of fundamental knowledge to extend healthy life and reduce the burdens of illness and disability. The NIH is seeking to obtain the services of a Construction Manager as Constructor (CMc) at Risk. Independently, and not as an agent of the Government and upon acceptance of a Guaranteed Maximum Price (GMP), the Contractor shall provide all labor, materials, supervision, coordination, appliances, equipment, transportation, and any other element or item, as required for full and complete execution of the work in accordance with the specifications and drawings for the project. The proposed project is the renovation of the F Wing of Building 10 on the NIH campus in Bethesda, Maryland. Due to partial occupancy of some areas within the F wing, the project consists of two interrelated tasks. Task A consists of converting 64,000 gross square feet of former patient care units on F-Wing floors 2 through 5 to accommodate laboratories, lab support and administrative areas and to install new utilities infrastructure; the infrastructure work will support the renovation of the entire F-Wing and will include the installation of mechanical equipment on floors 4 and 14. ARRA-funded Task B consists of the conversion of 151,600 gross square feet of former patient care units on F-Wing floors 6 through 13, to accommodate laboratories, lab support and administrative areas; work includes the installation of mechanical equipment on floors 9, 13, and 14. Task B also includes fit-out of north corridor areas of floors 2 through 5 not constructed in Task A. The Design Documents for Tasks A and B are the responsibility of the architectural and engineering consulting firms currently under contract. NIH intends to issue a separate RFP for a Construction Quality Manager (CQM) to provide services to assist the NIH Project Officer in the supervision of the performance of the A/E and the CMc in the projects for the Building 10 Renovation. CMc Scope of Services The Government intends to negotiate a GMP utilizing approved 100% construction documents. These 100% documents will be issued with the solicitation to allow the Offeror to prepare their Guaranteed Maximum Price for the Pre-Construction and Construction Tasks. A single GMP will be required for both interrelated tasks (Task A, floors 2-5, and Task B, floors 6-13 and north corridor areas of floors 2-5). Areas adjacent to the construction will be occupied throughout the renovation Tasks. There may be a need to break out portions of the design and construction to allow for advanced procurement of long lead items. At the completion of Task A, the Government will conduct an Activation /Occupancy Task to equip and move occupants into floors 2 through 5 of the F-Wing. Portions of Task B may be concurrent with Task A, but Task B can only be completed following the Activation/Occupancy of Task A. A similar Activation / Occupancy Task will occur at the completion of Task B construction, equipping and moving occupants into floors 6 through 13. The CMc shall coordinate its activities as required with the Government’s Occupancy Tasks. The CMc shall not interrupt any of the NIH Governmental activities in the performance of his work, including the adjacent occupied hospital and biomedical research areas within Building 10 which will remain operational, throughout the construction process. For example, In the adjacent wing of Building 10 on the second floor sensitive surgeries will be conducted in Operating Rooms with utility and Joint Commission accreditation requirements, which shall be addressed and supported at all times. On the 11th floor F Wing BSL 2 infectious disease research with controlled select agents will continue to be conducted throughout the first phase of the project. Loss of control of the directional air flow, interruption of the lab vacuum system, or loss of electrical power could lead to the contamination of those working with these samples and those in adjacent spaces. During the second phase of the project, autopsies and critical analysis of patient pathology samples will be evaluated on the second and third floors of the F Wing. These spaces will be connected to the new utility systems which are under renovation for the upper floors. Loss of utilities could lead to misdiagnosis of critical surgical, patient pathology specimens. Main computer connections, which are located below the construction area in the F Wing, are critical to allow Doctors to retrieve patient data from the Clinical Data Center and to place orders for the treatment of patients. If this utility were lost, patients’ lives would be endangered.
