Project objective is to maintain normal operations by alleviating localized and reoccurring flooding during and after major storm events. Project shall address / mitigate risk and damage from rainfall levels based on a 25-year storm. Project has been designed through the equivalent of the Bid Documents phase of basic services. Design services for this contract will begin at the 50% Construction Documents phase with submittals due for completion of Construction Documents continuing forward for the remainder of basic services through 1-year construction warranty / project closeout. Designer shall be solely responsible for reviewing and modifying the construction documents as necessary to provide a fully functional project. A set of the in-progress Bid Documents, associated hydrology model(s), topographic survey and geotechnical report(s) will be made available to the Designer for reference and reuse. It is anticipated that hazardous materials abatement will be necessary in order to complete the demolition phase of the work. Design fee takes into account the reduced scope of basic services as well as the environmental design scope associated with demolition. Designer shall be responsible for comprehensive sampling, testing, design of hazardous material abatement, and air monitoring during the abatement. Third party sampling, testing, and air monitoring will be a reimbursable expense. Designer should anticipate FEMA participation regarding grant funding, final design approvals, during construction and at closeout. Designer shall assist with grant scope and cost alignment as required. All work and invoicing shall be in accordance with FEMA and FPC requirements. This project is located within the security gates of the prison, and as such, design and construction including the logistics of site access, staging, and personnel clearances shall be coordinated with the Department of Corrections.

This project consists of removal and replacement of the existing HVAC system and existing fume hoods. All existing air handling units, ductwork, hydronic pumps, and steam to hot water heat exchangers are to be removed and replaced with new VAV air handling units, ductwork, and VAV terminal units with hot water heating coils. New VAV fume hoods are to be provided utilizing manifold exhaust ducts wherever possible in order to minimize roof penetrations. A new gas fired boiler as the heating water source will be required with new variable speed hydronic pumps, and a new direct digital temperature controls system. The project also includes re-roofing, roof repairs, and masonry repairs, and an architect is required as a project consultant. Both the first and third floor roofs are low-sloped roofs. The first floor roof (14,395 sf) will be a new SBS roof system that has been designed and approved as part of a previous FP&C project from the Programming through Design Development Phases. A set of design documents for the first floor roof will be made available to the Designer for reference. The third floor roof (20,675 sf) requires repair as it has experienced some leaks, primarily around the exterior perimeter. It is anticipated that miscellaneous masonry repairs will be required at roof/expansion joint intersections. Hazardous materials abatement will be necessary to complete the work and is included in the scope and in the Designer’s fee. The Designer’s scope of services will include comprehensive testing and design of hazardous materials abatement, and air monitoring during the abatement. Third party sampling, testing, and air monitoring will be a reimbursable expense. 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".
