DRAFT RFP In an effort to assemble and provide the best procurement documents for the construction of the NSLS-II we are making available a copy of the draft RFP for review and comment. We invite you to provide suggestions concerning any aspect of the draft RFP that would either clarify or improve the draft RFP or increase the likelihood of your company submitting a proposal. Please feel free to provide any other constructive or innovative suggestions which may assist us in improving our procurement process. The DRAFT RFP and Model Health and Safety plan are available for down load from this website. comments and recommendations should be provided no later than June 4, 2008, to David J. Paveglio at Dpavegli@bnl.gov or Brookhaven National Laboratory, Brookhaven Science Associates, Bldg 830M,Upton, NY 11773. This draft RFP is being provided to permit interested contractors the opportunity to review and make comments and recommendations concerning the proposed acquisition process. It in no way implies either implicitly or explicitly that respondents will be compensated in any way by BSA for information or materials provided. It does not constitute a solicitation and should not be construed as a commitment of any kind by BSA to issue a solicitation or ultimately award a contract. All information provided becomes BSAís property and will not be returned. NSLS-II INFORMATION Brookhaven Science Associates, LLC (BSA) is seeking interested General Contractors for the construction of conventional facilities for the National Synchrotron Light Source II (NSLS-II) project, which is to be located at Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL), Upton, NY 11973. The NSLS-II will be an advanced, highly optimized third generation medium energy storage ring with full injection for top-off mode operation. The X-ray brightness and flux of NSLS-II will be world leading, exceeding that of any other currently existing or under construction. It will be 10,000 times brighter and have 10 times higher flux than the present NSLS. NSLS-II will meet the nationís need for a high brightness, medium energy X-ray source. It will enable structural studies of the smallest crystals in structural biology, provide a wide range of nanometer resolution probes for Nanoscience, enable coherent beam scattering studies of the dynamics of condensed matter systems, and enable new methods for imaging the structure of disordered materials and biological systems. The conventional facilities required for the NSLS-II will include a Ring Building of approximately 383,000 square feet. Additional small utility buildings may be required depending, on the ultimate design of utility systems. The Ring Building will serve as the centerpiece of NSLS-II and will house the operations center, department offices, offices for the visiting user community, laboratory space, the main accelerator ring, the experimental beamlines, experimental floor area, and supporting facilities. The proposed construction type for each building will be reinforced slab on grade with perimeter footing, structural steel frame with composite reinforced concrete slab on metal deck for upper floors, and insulated metal panel exterior. Roofing may be a combination of standing seam metal roof, built-up bitumin, or membrane roof systems. Although the building design will generally involve standard commercial design and construction techniques, there are some additional considerations due to the specific requirements of the accelerator, experimental beamlines and types of research that will take place in laboratory spaces. Placement of the floor slab will involve an estimated 35,000 cubic yards of concrete with special consideration given to minimization of differential settlement to assure alignment integrity of the installed accelerator and beamlines. The NSLS-II project building is designed to minimize sources of vibration and transmission of vibration that would impact beam stability in the accelerator and experimental beamline areas and laboratory spaces. Additionally, the building design minimizes EMI and RFI fields in the experimental beamline areas, certain portions of the accelerator, and laboratory spaces by the routing of electrical cabling and placement and shielding of electrical equipment. There are specific temperature stability requirements in the accelerator, experimental beamline, and certain laboratory spaces that will require HVAC system and control design that exceeds standard commercial practices. The estimated value of conventional construction ranges between $180,000,000 and $200,000,000.
