On behalf of Winrock International, Cresa Project Management requests proposals for General Contracting Services for the renovations of 20,691 SF of the Arkansas Regional Innovation Hub (“the Hub”) building at 204 E 4th Street North Little Rock, AR 72114. Please note that the Hub building is an owned facility by Winrock International. We are requesting general contractor fees/overhead, general conditions pricing, and a preliminary construction schedule based on the attached project master schedule. Final pricing based on final construction documents will be an open book bid review with pre-approved subcontractors to include Cresa, Gensler, and Bluemoon Engineering to select the final subcontractors.
Winrock International would like a relationship of trust and confidence established between itself and the Contractor. To this end, the Contractor must use its best skill and judgment in a cooperative effort with the Project Team to further the interests of Winrock International to ultimately achieve their desired build-out, budget and schedule (“Work”). Once the construction phase begins, the Contractor will ensure an adequate supply of workmen and materials to perform the Work in the best, most expeditious and economic way, in a manner consistent with project objectives.
Winrock International will choose a general contractor directly from the responses of this RFP. All proposals (electronic only) are due by 5:00pm on Tuesday, December 6, 2022. Contract award is a best value competition evaluated on, with weighted percentages: 1) ability to meet schedule (10%), 2) project team and approach, including similar project experience (40%), 3) cost (20%), and 4) quality and thoroughness of preliminary budgetary pricing provided (30%). All requests for information are to be submitted by email to Cresa in Microsoft Word compatible format no later than 5:00 PM on Tuesday, November 15, 2022.
