Scope of Services: Project Description: The University of California, Santa Barbara (UCSB) requests a written response to this Request for Qualifications (RFQ) from firms (Consultants) with relevant expertise in planning, architecture, engineering, and cost estimating for redevelopment projects. The ideal firm will possess experience conducting site capacity analysis, existing conditions assessments and feasibility studies; pre-architectural planning and programming studies; site master planning and design; experience repurposing industrial buildings, and expertise in cost estimation of major capital projects for public sector, higher education, and commercial or corporate clients.
UCSB is initiating a redevelopment project requiring a multiphase planning process that will culminate in a future RFQ proposal to design and construct a new office building and possibly renovate existing facilities. Two properties will be studied for site capacity and feasibility: a 7.75 acre property located off-campus at the Cabrillo Business Park (CBP) in the city of Goleta, and a smaller secondary site located on campus. The CBP property currently includes approximately 60,000 square feet of existing buildings used primarily for storage. The campus vision is to construct a large new office building at CPB to accommodate the relocation of operations occupying the Facilities Management (FM) site and select administrative units (TBD) currently located on-and off-campus.
The objectives for Phase 1 of the CBP Planning Study include: (1) determine site capacity, including optimized development reflecting a best land-use strategy, (2) conduct a conditions assessment of existing on-site buildings for potential reuse and renovation, (3) confirm and identify environmental and regulatory requirements, (4) develop strategic space plans for the relocation of Facilities Management, Design and Construction Services, Business and Financial Planning, and Transportation and Parking Services, (5) draft preliminary space programs for new construction and possible renovation of existing facilities, and (6) prepare high-level cost estimates. At least two planning scenarios will be pursued. Project findings will describe each alternative’s pros and cons, including site plans, massing studies and cost opinions. Alternative analysis should ensure that optimal development is achievable at each site that is studied. Subsequent phases will address programming and design.
SOQ Deadline: Each consultant shall provide eight (8) hardcopy sets and one (1) digital copy (.pdf) of each consultant team’s SOQ package, which must be delivered to UCSB by 4:00 p.m. on September 9, 2019.
