DESIGN-BUILD SERVICES FOR SEASONAL INFLATABLE PAVILION - HIRSHHORN MUSEUM AND SCULPTURE GARDEN - SMITHSONIAN INSTITUTION The purpose of this Request for Proposals (RFP) is to select a Design Build Team (DBT) to provide all labor, materials, tools, equipment and services necessary to complete design and construction of the Seasonal Inflatable Pavilion (SIP) for the Hirshhorn Museum & Sculpture Garden (HMSG) in Washington, DC. The SIP is a temporary, air supported, fabric membrane structure that will provide new event space in the courtyard of the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden (HMSG). The structure is to be erected once a year, either in spring or fall, allowing the museum to program its courtyard and thus optimize its footprint. The covered 12,812 square feet of sheltered space accommodates up to approximately 852 people for public events including performing arts, film, lectures, and debates. The space is enclosed by an air supported, cable stayed, translucent, single layer membrane of high performance fabric. The main volume, of the enclosure, referred to as "the Body," rises through the void of the existing building and projects above the Hirshhorn approximately 20 meters (70 feet) and is referred to as "the Head." An extension of the Body, referred to as "the Connector" and "the X-Space," reaches across the plaza, compressed beneath the mass of the existing museum. The services for this project will include, but are not limited to, general construction services, preparing construction documents, and serving as the Architect/Engineer of record for the project. It shall be the responsibility of the Offeror to design and construct this project under SI's design and construction excellence guidelines and complete construction while meeting all the specified project requirements within budget. The scope of professional services will require at a minimum: Professional architectural, engineering, landscape architectural, interior design, and related consulting services for concept design documents, design development documents, construction documents, specifications, cost estimates, schedules, space planning, value engineering services, computer-aided design and drafting (CADD), and includes construction. The construction services will require at a minimum: fabrication and construction of the facilities, administration of the construction contract and all subcontracts, scope management, value engineering, coordination of regular construction meetings, CPM scheduling, maintaining of construction records, including daily logs and monthly reports, monitoring of construction costs, all services included in the contract documents, building commissioning and turnover to designated facility management staff, post-construction contract services (PCCS), abatement, demolition, warranties and guarantees and other required supplemental services as required under the contract. Services will also include, in addition to the initial installation of the Pavilion, maintenance of the structure for a period of two months, de-installation, storage, and annual re-installation, maintenance, de-installation, and storage for a period of four additional years/cycles following the first. Smithsonian Institution has estimated the total budget for this project, including, all design requirements, construction, installation, maintenance, deinstallation, transportation, storage and all related services from the Base Contract through Option 1 to be between $10 million and $12 million. The Smithsonian Institution will hold the Contractor responsible for performing within this budget.
