Purpose/Background

Boulder County Housing Authority’s (BCHA) mission is to sustainably maximize access to and maintain quality affordable housing for residents of Boulder County, including middle-, low-, and very-low-income community members. We believe everyone has the right to live in a safe, affordable home, and we develop our projects with the understanding that housing stability can improve health, success in school and work, and the strength of our community.

Amid skyrocketing housing prices across the Front Range, BCHA is building a new neighborhood of diverse housing options to help the City of Lafayette and the broader region achieve important goals addressing the lack of housing affordability. Willoughby Corner will bring 400 new permanently affordable homes to Lafayette in a variety of housing types including duplexes, townhomes, multi-family apartments, and permanently affordable for-sale (owner occupied) residences. The project will include significant site improvements and resident amenity space. The planned housing site is an undeveloped 24-acre parcel located southwest of 120th and East Emma Streets, ideally situated near important services and the town center. These homes will be financed primarily with low-income housing tax credits (LIHTC) through the Colorado Housing Finance Authority (CHFA) along with Private Activity Bonds.

BCHA seeks proposals from qualified Construction Manager/General Contractors (CM/GCs) to provide a.) pre-construction, b.) construction, and c.) construction administration services for Willoughby Corner. We invite firms who work collaboratively, think creatively, and build with agility and skill, to submit a proposal. This RFP specifies the full scope of services but please be advised: an award of a pre-construction services contract under this RFP does not guarantee an award of a construction and administration services contract. BCHA reserves the right to contract for the construction phase under this RFP, or through a separate procurement process.
