RFP: Construction of the New Ridgefield Tobacco Retail Outlet

General Information: This project is for the construction of a new single story, 4,911sf Tobacco Retail store on an existing developed (pad-ready) site.  The new building site location includes existing pathways, conduits and piping for new sewer, domestic water, fire-water, electrical power, fiber-optics and storm water.  The new building is a single-story, wood construction building with a concrete slab-on-grade and foundation system.  All building systems are to be connected to existing pathways including some sitework rework is needed to re-route existing pathways to their designed locations.

This project also includes the installation of a new mechanical air system, fire suppression system, fire alarm system, security camera system, security alarm system, and electrical system with a connection to a new emergency generator system. Improvements and upgrades to the existing site include the demolition of select concrete curbs and existing asphalt required to construct the new building.  New site walkways and handicap ramps are to be constructed directly around the new building to provide pathways from existing walkways and parking lots to the new building.

Bollard protection around the new building and adjacent to the existing parking area are to be installed.  New site signage with electrical power is to be coordinated with the owner and the owner’s signage consultant.  A relevant signage allowance should be included in the GMP pricing.  The steel gantry-style signage supports and foundations should be included in the base scope of work. Note that this is a GMP proposal with submittal requirements such as resumes of the project team, and company experience in addition to the GMP bid form.
