Prequalification of General Building Contractors to Provide Design Assist Services and Construction for the New Judgeship Project, Solano County Courthouse

RFQ Number: RFQ-OCCM-FY-2008-13

The AOC seeks to prequalify a pool of General Building Contractors to provide Design Assist services, obtain all permits and construct the interior tenant improvements described herein. Firms are requested to submit their qualifications for the Project as described in Article 3 in the Request for Qualifications. Subject to the conditions prescribed by the AOC and provided herein, the AOC is hereby soliciting qualifications for the Project. Selection will be made on the basis of qualifications. The AOC intends to prequalify a group of General Contractors in a timely manner, and solicit proposals from them shortly thereafter.

The project consists of the renovation of the Solano County Superior Courts buildings in Fairfield, CA (hereinafter "the Project". The Project is comprised of related work in two separate buildings; Hall of Justice and Law and Justice. The work is to be completed as a 'single' Project with phased construction located in the two existing buildings where Court functions will have to be maintained in operation.

Phase 'A' - Criminal Court Clerk's Office will include renovations in the Hall of Justice on the first floor for the proposed tenant improvements shown on the Drawings. The existing space of approximately 11,500 gross square feet is structurally comprised of concrete masonry/concrete bearing walls, concrete slab floor, wood floor/ceiling joists for the floor above and some remaining wood frame interior partitions. A previously completed Selective Demolition project has demolished most, if not all of the existing interior partitions, ceilings and floor coverings required to be removed to allow for the tenant improvements; some minor demolition remains to be completed. The new construction will consist of non-structural metal stud demising walls, ceilings, floor coverings, casework, modifications to existing mechanical, electrical, plumbing, fire alarm, fire sprinkler and security systems, limited CCTV, telephone/data infrastructure and miscellaneous finishes as required for a complete and functional building.

Phase 'B' - Courtroom Additions (two new Court Sets with Holding Area) This Phase will begin when the Criminal Court Clerks have been relocated to the Hall of Justice and the space becomes available for construction activities. The existing space of approximately 7,600 gross square feet is within existing interior space on the second floor of the Law and Justice Center and is currently being used by the Criminal Court Clerks. It is generally open office space with a few hard wall private offices and a public counter accessible off the public corridor. The existing space was originally designed to be able to be adapted for 'future' Courtrooms with the floor plate being similar to the other existing Courtrooms. The original construction made space accommodations for a future elevator from the basement tunnel from the Jail over to the future Courts and a block-out for future adjacent stairs. There will be a Holding Area between the two new Courts, as shown on the Drawings. The detention cells within the Holding Area will require plumbing that involves work within the existing Sheriff's Administration. This Project will create two new Criminal Court sets, including jury boxes, jury deliberation suites, judges' chambers, holding and interview rooms that are similar to the existing Courtroom layout, finishes and furnishings, as reasonably possible. The new Judges' chambers and office space is to match the existing layout, finishes and furnishings as can be reasonably accommodated. The new construction will consist of non-structural metal stud demising walls, ceilings, floor coverings, casework and interior architectural woodwork, modifications to existing mechanical, electrical, plumbing, fire alarm, fire sprinkler and security systems, limited CCTV, telephone/data infrastructure, minor demolition of interior walls/ceilings/finishes/equipment and miscellaneous finishes as required for a complete and functional building.
