NYC Health and Hospitals FEMA Priority Mitigation Projects Request for Qualifications for the Provision of Construction Contractor Services

Submission Deadline
June 29, 2018 at 4:00 pm

New York City Economic Development Corporation (NYCEDC) is seeking qualified firms to construct infrastructure and resiliency improvements estimated at ~$173 million at four NYC Health and Hospitals (H+H) facilities: Bellevue Hospital (Manhattan), Coler Rehabilitation and Nursing Care Center (Roosevelt Island), Coney Island Hospital (Brooklyn) and Metropolitan Hospital (Manhattan). In October 2012, each facility suffered extensive flood damage as a result of Hurricane Sandy. Since then, each hospital has temporarily restored the damaged areas and, working with the Federal Emergency Management Agency (“FEMA”), have developed plans to mitigate damage from future storms and flooding. 

NYCEDC, as the lead of an interagency team, is now focused on completing priority mitigation projects at these four facilities. This initial work will make existing facilities more resilient and protect against future disasters.  Once complete, these initial projects will further the City’s resiliency goals and ensure that these public hospitals have the necessary safeguards in place to operate during a storm and mitigate damage and power loss.

NYCEDC plans to prequalify firms on the basis of factors stated in the RFQ which include, but are not limited to: the firm’s demonstrated experience and expertise in the particular trade for which the firm is submitting its qualifications; the firm’s record regarding accidents and lost work days on construction projects; and the firm’s resources available for the Project.

NYCEDC and H+H will be contracting with multiple design and engineering firms for all contract documents associated with the Services.  The Construction Management firm (CM) will provide construction management services for the Project, including holding all construction subcontracts for the Project.

NYCEDC anticipates that initial projects will be procured in Q3 2016. Design packages will continue to be completed and released periodically with final projects’ anticipated completion early 2020. NYCEDC will issue advertisements in the City Record and provide a notice on EDC’s procurement website (www.nycedc.com/RFP) of forthcoming design packages to be issued by the CM. Once NYCEDC posts an advertisement for a forthcoming design package, firms will have 30 days to provide their qualifications in order to be considered for the prequalified list of firms who will receive the bid package from the CM. Note that if a firm has already submitted qualifications they should not resubmit their qualifications.
