Project Description: The University of California, Santa Barbara (“University”) will be selecting multiple design firms to provide As-needed Laboratory Design Services for a one year base term with an additional single-year option to extend the agreement(s).

Statements of Qualification are hereby solicited from professionals interested in providing programming, conceptual design services, preparation of bidding documents, cost estimating, construction administration, and construction support services, including but not limited to environmental approval processes, for a series of separate laboratory renovation projects with a gross renovated floor area in the aggregate of as much as 10,000 SF.

The total estimated value for the various laboratory projects will be in the range of $400,000 to $4M; however, the selected consultant(s) are not promised any minimum commitment of work by the University. The University may, at its sole discretion, select and enter into an indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity agreement with five to eight qualified consultant firms. Project services will be awarded to the selected firms based upon availability, workload, capacity, demonstrated expertise/experience, the relevant scope, scheduling issues, etc.

The various projects will renovate laboratory spaces in one or more University buildings, bringing each up to current building standards for safety, increased energy efficiency, utility infrastructure and modifying the interior spaces to facilitate future use by newly hired University faculty. A majority of the design work will impact the University’s Biology II Building 571, which was constructed in 1967 and has been renovated throughout subsequent years. The anticipated as-needed laboratory design services will be required throughout fiscal year 2019/20.

Affirmative Action Statement: Each candidate firm will be required to show evidence of its equal employment opportunity policy. Every effort will be made to ensure that all persons shall have equal access to contracts and other business opportunities with the University, regardless of: race; color; religion; sex; age; ancestry; national origin; sexual orientation; physical or mental disability; veteran’s status; medical condition; genetic information; marital status; gender identity; pregnancy; service in the uniformed services; or citizenship within the limits imposed by law or University’s policy.
