Manhattan Greenway - Harlem River - Construction Management Services

Submission Deadline
August 7, 2019 at 4:00 pm

New York City Economic Development Corporation (NYCEDC) is seeking a consultant or consultant team to provide construction management services for the Manhattan Greenway – Harlem River project. The Manhattan Waterfront Greenway is a 32-mile route that circumnavigates the island of Manhattan. The Greenway is intended to transform underutilized waterfront into public space for both recreational and commuting use. Despite progress in recent years on new waterfront public space in New York City, a major gap exists in East Harlem. Disconnected from the water by the Harlem River Drive and various bridge on- and off-ramps, the community of East Harlem has few connections to the waterfront. The Manhattan Greenway - Harlem River Project addresses the gap between East 125th Street and East 132nd Street along the Harlem River and provides the necessary bulkhead repairs from East 125th Street to West 145th Street and West 155th Street to Swindler Cove.  The Project will generally consist of a bulkhead component and an upland park component.

The Construction Manager shall provide administrative and management functions necessary to ensure the successful completion of the Project with respect to cost, schedule and quality.  The Construction Manager shall provide engineering peer review, constructability review and cost estimating services, with special attention to integrate planned work at the Project Site with adjacent parkland.  In addition, the Construction Manager must ensure that public safety measures are implemented and closely adhered to by all Subcontractors. 

NYCEDC plans to select a consultant on the basis of factors stated in the RFP which include, but are not limited to: the quality of the proposal, experience of key staff identified in the proposal, experience and quality of any subcontractors proposed, demonstrated successful experience in performing services similar to those encompassed in the RFP and the proposed fee.
