RFQ #2021-CMAR-1: City of Deer Park Community/Recreation Center Project

Top Five (5) Respondents to the RFQ

The new Community/Recreation Center project will be funded by the Type B sales and use tax. This tax was originally approved by the voters in May 2015, and was reauthorized in May 2021. The City will use the Construction Manager-at-Risk (CMAR) method as the construction procurement delivery method for this project. Under this method, the City contracts with an architect or engineer for design and construction phase services and contracts separately with a CMAR to serve as the general contractor and to provide consultation during the design and construction, rehabilitation, alteration, or repair of a facility.

The CMAR involves a two - step process as follows:

Step 1: Issue a Request for Qualifications (RFQ). At this step, the City may not request fees or prices in step one.

Step 2: the City issues a Request for Proposals (RFP) requesting that five or fewer offerors, selected solely on the basis of qualifications, provide additional information, including the construction manager-at-risk's proposed fee and prices for fulfilling the general conditions.

The deadline for receipt of Statements of Qualification (SOQs) for RFQ #2021-CMAR-1: City of Deer Park Community/Recreation Center Project was October 25, 2021 at 11:00 AM. SOQs were received from eleven (11) firms prior to the deadline.

A City of Deer Park Qualifications Review Committee has reviewed, evaluated, and ranked the statements of qualifications. The following top five (5) companies have been selected by the committee to participate in step two (the RFP) of the selection process for this project:

• JE Dunn Construction

• Manhattan Construction Company

• Durotech

• Tellepsen

• White Construction Company

On November 16, 2021, the Deer Park City Council ratified the committee’s top five selection. This completes Step 1 (RFQ) of the selection process for the CMAR.

It is anticipated that the City Council will approve the RFP document and authorize issuance of the RFP to the top five companies at the December 7, 2021 City Council meeting. Thereafter, the City will distribute the RFP to the aforementioned top five companies inviting them to participate in Step 2 (RFP) of the selection process.
