Bowen Island Municipality is requesting Expressions of Interest and Qualifications from professional architects to advance our new Fire Hall and Emergency Operations Centre from the concept stage through to final construction. This project has been approved in the 2018 budget with construction anticipated to commence by September 2018. The Municipality is seeking an architect for the preparation of the construction drawings, to act as prime consultant, payment certifier, provide ongoing inspections to handle contract administration during construction, and participate in the tendering for the general contractor on this project.
The intent of this Request for Expressions of Interest (EOI) is to provide public notification of this opportunity and to solicit interest from qualified parties who may be interested in bidding on this project. The municipality intends to establish a shortlist of qualified respondents from the EOI and subsequently invite those short-listed to provide a proposal for those services described in this EOI through a Request for Proposals (RFP) process. Only those firms selected to the shortlist will receive the RFP.
The response to this EOI should include:
• Intended list of sub-consultants to be used
• Your firm’s qualification and credentials
• A list of past projects relevant in scope to the proposed firehall concept drawings
• Your firm’s track record for completing projects on time and within budget
• Your firm’s capacity to take this project on with anticipated construction to commence in September 2018 and be completed within 1 year.
Past experience in successfully designing and coordinating the associated sub-consultant services for municipal fire hall facilities will be one of the key criteria elements for this project. More information about the project is available on the Municipal website at:
