|The Administration recommends that the Mayor and City Commission of the City of Miami Beach, Florida approve the resolution accepting the City Manager’s recommendation for Phase I of the evaluation process pertaining to the bids received, pursuant to RFP 2020-180-ND, for design/build services for 72nd street community complex, approving the short-list for bidders to participate in Phase II of the solicitation process.|
|On November 6, 2018, Miami Beach residents approved a ballot measure, which authorized the issuance of a general obligation bond (G.O. Bond) for the design, permitting, manufacture installation, and construction of the 72nd Street Community Complex. A total of $55 million of general obligation bonds were issued to fund the project, including but not limited to the design, permitting, and construction. The Project includes a multi-level mixed-use parking garage requiring the program components of a 500 space parking structure, 50-meter competition pool with support amenities, 25-meter multi-purpose pool, 7,500 SF Miami-Dade County library, 5,000 SF commercial/retail, 7, 500 SF fitness center, 5,000 SF community center, 60,000 SF of active green space, and a jogging path.|
|On June 24, 2020, the Mayor and City Commission authorized the issuance of Request for Proposals (RFP) 2020-180-ND for Design/Build Services for 72nd Street Community Complex. On June 26, 2020, the RFP was issued. A voluntary pre-proposal conference to provide information to proposers submitting a response was held on July 7, 2020.
In accordance with Section 287.055 of the Florida Statutes, the RFP provides for a two-step, phased evaluation process. The Phase I selection process, which is the reason for this item, relates to the qualifications, experience and availability of the proposers and key members of the design-build team, including the lead designer and lead construction firm. Only those Proposers short-listed during Phase I are authorized to proceed to Phase II of the RFP selection process, in which price and detailed technical proposals based on the approved Design Criteria Package (the “DCP”) will be considered.
Phase I responses were due and received on August 10, 2020. The City received a total of seven (7) proposals from the following firms:
• ANF Group, Inc.
• Balfour Beatty Construction, LLC
• Kaufman Lynn Construction, Inc.
• KVC Constructors, Inc.
• NV2A Group, LLC
• PCL Construction Services, Inc.
• The Haskell Company
The proposal from ANF Group, Inc. was deemed non-responsive for failure to meet the minimum requirements of the RFP and was not further evaluated.
On August 3, 2020, the City Manager appointed the Evaluation Committee via LTC # 276-2020. The Evaluation Committee convened on August 26, 2020, to consider proposals received under Phase I. The Committee was comprised of Cynthia Casanova, Assistant Director, Parks and Recreation Department; Saul Frances, Director, Parking Department; David Gomez, Division Director, The Office of Capital Improvement Projects; Carolina Jones, Member, Parks and Recreation Advisory Committee; Carmen Sanchez, Deputy Planning Director, Planning Department; Daniel Veitia, Resident, North Beach; and Elizabeth Wheaton, Director, Environment and Sustainability Department.
The Committee was provided an overview of the project, information relative to the City’s Cone of Silence Ordinance and the Government Sunshine Law. The Committee was also provided with general information on the scope of services and a copy of each proposal. The Committee was instructed to score and rank each proposal pursuant to the evaluation criteria established in the RFP. The evaluation process resulted in the ranking of proposers as indicated in Attachment A.
A summary of each top-ranked firm follows:

After reviewing the qualifications of each firm and having considered the Evaluation Committee’s rankings and commentary, I recommend that the Mayor and the City Commission approve short-listing the three (3) top ranked firms: Kaufman Lynn Construction, Inc., as the first top ranked firm, and PCL Construction Services, Inc. and The Haskell Company as the tied second ranked firms. These firms demonstrated the highest degree of qualifications. The evaluation committee scores indicate a significant drop-off in the scores awarded to the top three firms when compared to the remaining firms. The short-listed firms will be further considered in Phase II of the evaluation process. Phase II will consider price and detailed technical proposals for the project. Some of the highlights of the firms’ qualifications, as articulated by the Evaluation Committee, include:
Kaufman Lynn Construction, Inc.
• The firm put together a cohesive team with urban design and rooftop pool experience.
• The firm discussed sustainability as it relates to rainwater, harvesting, bioswales, and cisterns.
• The references and projects included in the proposal were the most relevant to the 72nd Street Community Complex.
• The firm addressed security control as it relates to the synergy between the pool and the fitness center.
PCL Construction Services, Inc.
• The aquatic consultant has over 50 years of experience and more than 4,000 projects across 6 continents.
• The firm has a good understanding of the site and the City’s mission.
• The firm has a strong understanding of how to incorporate resilience and sustainability into the overall design from the beginning and throughout the course of the project.
• The firm highlighted its relevant experience that directly relates to the 72nd Street Community Complex and its specialized elements.
The Haskell Company
• The firm took into consideration resiliency beyond water management and discussed energy use as well as how the building can be designed to utilize the natural features.
• The firm partnered with Arquitectonica, as the lead design consultant, who has designed a number of buildings on 72nd Street and is familiar with the site and neighborhood.
• Haskell is a large, capable, and exceptionally qualified firm that has completed over 2,500 design/build projects.
• The firm’s priority is the user experience.
Therefore, based on the experience and qualifications mentioned above, I recommend the Mayor and City Commission of the City of Miami Beach, Florida accept the recommendation of the City Manager pertaining to the ranking of proposals with respect to Phase I of the RFP selection process pursuant to Request for Proposals (RFP) 2020-180-ND for Design/Build Services for 72nd Street Community Complex, and approving the shortlist of the three top-ranked proposers Kaufman Lynn Construction, Inc, as the top ranked proposer, and PCL Construction Services, Inc. and The Haskell Company as the tied second ranked proposers, to be further considered in Phase II of the evaluation process.
