CLARIFICATIONS, QUESTIONS, AND ANSWERS

NOTICE TO PLANHOLDERS:  Please be aware these plans & specifications are not final bidding documents.  These are only 90% plans and specs to provide a sense of scope of work for General Contractors to use in the preparation of the Request for Qualifications.  They are not intended to be final bid documents which will be completed and presented to the successful generals that are invited to bid on the project.

Will there be a site visit?  At this time we have chosen not to schedule a walkthrough of the facility prior to the RFQ responses.  It was our intent to give sufficient background of the project and scope of work so that perspective General Contractors knew the size, complexity, and type of work that would be performed.  We also included access to current 90% drawings and certainly we have no issues with generals that would like to drive by and look at the site.   Our main focus at this stage is getting detailed information about your firm’s qualifications for performing the work, which is why we are asking very specific questions on your firm’s abilities, the team’s expertise, previous work on similar projects, etc.  If we are missing some information that you feel is critical for you to provide this information, let me know as we will consider addendum documents or other feedback.
