Boulder County Rocky Mountain Rescue Group Architectural Services
Boulder County Building Services (BCBS) is seeking a team of professional consultants with relevant architectural design experience to complete design, acquire site and building permits and manage construction administration for a Zero Energy Building (ZEB, as defined by the U.S. Department of Energy) firehouse type facility at 3720 Walnut Street in Boulder Colorado. The Schematic Design, preliminary Cost Estimates and Project Schedule was completed in 2022 for scoping purposed before County Issue 1B, a ballot tax, to support Emergency Services. The current schematic design size, budget and schedule for the facility is: 16,000 +/- SF, $19.765 M with an estimated completion date of 2nd quarter 2026. An overview of the “project” and initial concepts were developed to determine the approximate size and cost (Attachment B).
The Architectural firm selected from this RFP will review and verify programming data, design, schedule, and costs with County Staff through a series of (5) phases: Design Development, 50% CDs, 75% CDS, Bidding and Permitting Documents and Construction Administration. During the first (3) phases (DD/ 50% CDs/ 75%CDs) the Design team will get sign off on the project from all project stakeholders to ensure that the project is below budget, on schedule and that the design meets the needs for a Search and Rescue organization. Cost estimates from a professional cost estimator will be done at each of these three phases.
To ensure a streamlined permitting process, the Design Team and County representatives will work closely with the City of Boulder Planning Department to collect all the project data and plans needed for each stage of the plan review process: Preapplication Meeting, Site Review, Technical Documents and Building Permit application.
