Project Description: Statements of Qualification submittals are hereby solicited by the University of California, Santa Barbara (“University”) from design professionals and firms with relevant experience and expertise in providing the services described herein. The selected consultant will provide design services associated with the Storke I & II Apartments Interior Renovation Project (“Project”), as more fully described in this Request for Qualifications (“RFQ”) No. FM230037. The Project includes the interior renewal of apartments with six (6) different floorplans. Two (2) bedroom/One (1) bath apartment flats and townhomes (approx. 800-880 sq. ft.), ten (10) of which are ADA accessible. The Project shall be seismically retrofitted up to a level SPR IV commensurate with an ASCE-17 Tier 2 per UC Seismic Policy. A third-party peer review will be conducted by an independent Consulting Structural Engineer.

The Work consists of abatement of hazardous materials, selective demolition, seismic/structural upgrades, new electrical/lighting, mechanical and plumbing, new cabinetry & hardware in kitchen & bath, new tile and solid surface counters, new flooring throughout, carpentry, paint, new plumbing fixtures and accessories, installation of University-Furnished/Contractor-Installed (“UFCI”) appliances, and relevant ADA upgrades.

Estimated Construction Cost: The overall construction cost estimate for Phase I is approximately $3,500,000.

Scope of Services: The scope of services will include architectural and structural engineering design for the Project, including cost estimating, code analysis, ADA Path of Travel analysis and recommendation, value engineering, project scheduling, and coordination with University personnel and other stakeholders, culminating in completed construction documents issued for competitive bids. Construction phase services will include submittal, RFI and change order reviews and field representation.

The scope of professional services will be broken down into stages: Stage 1 services will include design development and a project cost plan under the University’s standard Professional Services Agreement (See Exhibit B). Stage 2 services will include the preparation of bidding construction documents (plans & specs), and may include modification of existing construction documents for future phases with updated cost estimates, bidding assistance, construction phase administrative services, and as-built documentation under the University’s standard Executive Design Professional Agreement (See Exhibit C). The first phase of the work will include two (2) building blocks (49 units total). Subsequent phases will be awarded as the occupied buildings become available. While it is anticipated that funding will be obtained, there is no assurance that funds will be received for the Project. Selection of the design professional will follow standard University procedures.

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.
