The project may include extension and addition of feed loops from the Central Utility Plant (CUP), other existing plants, or new plants as required to best serve the science buildings. Designer is to explore redundancy options. Design services and the fees established are based on and limited to Program Completion through Schematic Design phases only. At the Owner’s option, the design contract may be amended to include the additional phases of basic design services with a corresponding fee and time. The Designer shall prepare and submit all required drawings to Facility Planning and Control in AutoCAD and hard copy. Drawings shall follow the format specified in the "Instructions to Designers for AutoCAD Drawings Submittal". The funds available for construction are approximately $12,500,000.00 with a fee of approximately $136,094.00. Contract design time is 120 consecutive calendar days; including 40 days of review time. Thereafter, liquidated damages in the amount of $150.00 per day will be assessed. Further information is available from James Pugh, Facility Planning and Control, james.pugh@la.gov, (225)219-1129.
