RFQ for Prequalification of General Contractors for the Susanville Courthouse

RFQ: OCCM-2010-16-GS

The Office of Court Construction and Management (OCCM) of the Administrative Office of the Courts (AOC) seeks to prequalify a pool of qualified General Contractors from which to solicit bids for the construction of the new Susanville Courthouse. Firms selected for Prequalification will be given the opportunity to submit bids for the construction of the Project as described in Article 3 of the RFQ. 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 construction bids from them shortly thereafter.

The new Courthouse for the Superior Court of California, Lassen County will be situated in Susanville. This facility will consist of three multi-use courtrooms and a hearing room, along with support spaces, and totals approximately 42,300 gross square feet. The courthouse will be two stories in height with a steel moment frame structural system on a mat foundation. Exterior finishes include precast concrete with glazing consisting of clear glass and dark bronze mullions. The courthouse is sited on 5.43 acres and is accessed by two streets in Susanville. This dual access provides for separation of public and court staff/in-custody parking/circulation.

It is the intention of the AOC to begin construction in early to mid summer 2010, and continue through the winter. To accomplish this, site grading and utilities, as well as the mat foundation, must be complete before the onset of winter weather.

In responding to this RFQ, all Proposers are required to adhere to all of AOC requirements provided herein. All Proposers must hold a type B general contractor license from the State of California.
