At a minimum, the Construction Administrator attends the following meetings:
Project Start: The Construction Administrator reviews:
Schematic Review: This review is conducted for conformance to:
Construction Document Review: This review takes place at 100 percent Design Development, 50 percent and 95 percent Construction Documents. In addition to items described in the Schematic Review, the Construction Administrator shall check:
The Construction Administrator needs to remain involved throughout the design phases to monitor and work towards the successful completion of the design of the construction documents.
Forms & Templates:
Below are requirements for trade bidding, which may be conducted prior to completion of the project design. Refer to the Collaborative Design-Build RFP for more information on the trade bid requirements:
Reference Requests for Proposals documents (RFPs) for Collaborative Design-Build and Construction Manager at Risk projects
Definition of the Guaranteed Maximum Price (GMP): “The maximum price that the Trustees and Design-Builder agree upon as payment for managing, providing and installing all the Work.” The GMP is the Not-to-Exceed-Contract Amount.
Submittal of GMP: The Project-Budgeted Direct Construction Cost is provided in the Project RFP. The Trustees may revise the Project-Budgeted Direct Construction Cost during Phase 1.
At or before the scheduled completion of schematic design as shown in the RFP, the Contractor shall submit to the Trustees a GMP for the construction of the Project, for purposes of Board of Trustees approval. This GMP may be further developed to refine the scope, while holding the GMP.
The Contractor shall submit a final GMP with a detailed breakdown based on the Design-Build Documents submitted to the Trustees during the Design Development or Construction Document phase as indicated in the RFP Schedule or as otherwise agreed with the Trustees. The Contractor shall include in its GMP submittal:
The GMP is the maximum amount which the Trustees will pay the Contractor for completion of the design preconstruction services and construction of the project, except as may be adjusted by change orders.
The Contractor shall be responsible for any cost overrun of the GMP. If the Contractor’s Direct Construction Cost as bid during the Phase 2 agreement is less than the Contractor’s Direct Construction Cost portion of the GMP, the difference shall be retained by the Trustees.
Once bids are received on a bid package and the subcontracts are awarded, work usually or customarily included in the subcontract scope, and not specifically excluded, is deemed by the Trustees to be included in the subcontract. Should it become known that such work is not included in the subcontract, it may not be included in remaining bid packages and shall be debited from the Contractor’s contingency.
Remaining bid packages may be altered, created or deleted in response to current information. When all bid packages are awarded, a change order may be executed for the benefit of the Trustees to permanently recover all bid savings.
With the acceptance of the GMP, the Trustees will issue a Phase 2 agreement: For Collaborative Design-Build, for the completion of design and construction of the project;
