|REQUEST FOR APPROVAL TO ISSUE REQUEST FOR QUALIFICATIONS (RFQ) 2021-217-ND CONSTRUCTION MANAGER AT RISK (CMR) FOR THE 41ST STREET CORRIDOR REVITALIZATION PROJECT.
It is recommended that the Mayor and Commission of the City of Miami Beach, Florida authorize the issuance of Request for Qualifications (RFQ) for Construction Manager at Risk (CMR) services for the 41st street corridor revitalization project, General Obligation Bond (G.O. Bond) Project Number 40.
On November 6, 2018, Miami Beach voters approved the $439 million G.O. Bond Program in a voter referendum. The Program was approved with a $15 million budget allocated for quality-of-life improvements to the 41st Street Corridor, including lighting, landscaping, sidewalks, and street furnishings along the high-traffic corridor to enhance public safety, aesthetics, comfortability, and walkability for pedestrians. In 2018, the City engaged Alta Planning and Design, along with sub-consultant GEHL Studio, to prepare a vision plan which creates principles for design and development along the 41st Street Corridor. The vision plan would prioritize people along the corridor, rather than cars, by supporting consistent, safe and comfortable bus and bike networks, creating more reasons to spend time on the street, support transit riders and foster social resiliency.
In 2020, The City engaged AECOM to prepare a feasibility study for the implementation of the Alta/Gehl vision plan with estimates of the probable construction costs and to develop conceptual drawings for the area which encompasses that portion of 41st Street, between Alton Road and Pine Tree Drive, and that portion of all intersecting roads, between Alton Road and Pine Tree Drive, North to 42 Street and south to 40 Street. The report and conceptual design completed by AECOM proposes the reprogramming of on-street parking to allow for wider sidewalks and flexible use space, branded sidewalk pavement design, expanded shady tree canopy to improve walkability, bicycle amenities including bicycle lanes and parking, seating, and gateway feature(s) intended to reinvigorate the 41st Street corridor.
On January 13, 2021, the Mayor and City Commission adopted Resolution No. 2021-31551 approving the conceptual design for the 41st Street Corridor; and authorizing the Administration to develop and issue an RFQ for the selection of a firm for the design development, bid and award, and construction administration services for the project. The approval included specific requirements whereby no more than 15% of the existing Royal Palm trees may be removed and requiring that a replacement Royal Palm
be provided for each removal, within two blocks, North or South, of the corridor.
On May 14, 2021, the City issued an RFQ for Architectural and Engineering design services for the 41st Street Corridor Revitalization Project to provide complete design and construction documents, and related services necessary to implement the project. The City is now seeking the services of a qualified construction manager at risk firm for the project.
The City seeks proposals from construction manager at risk firms with the capabilities and experience to provide preconstruction services and construction phase services via a guaranteed maximum price (GMP) for the implementation of the streetscape redesign of 41st Street, between Alton Road and Pine tree Drive, and between 42nd Street and 40 Street. Work required under this RFQ shall be performed in accordance with the approved design for 41st Street, and will include at a minimum, enhancement of the pedestrian walkways, alteration of on street parking spaces, providing bike lanes, landscape and irrigation, outdoor seating, alteration of bus shelters and providing a gateway feature at the entrance of 41st Street.
