Request for Qualifications for Construction Manager Firms

The Brookline Housing Authority invites qualified Construction Management (CM) firms to submit Statements of Qualification (SOQ) for the firm to provide Public Construction Manager at Risk Services for the Modernization of Morse Apartments Project designed by Baker Wohl Architects. This RFQ is the first phase of a two-phase procurement process as set forth in MGL Chapter 149A. The evaluation procedure and criteria for selection are defined in the RFQ document. Responses to this RFQ will be used to pre-qualify CM firms who will be invited to submit responses to the RFP as detailed in MGL 149A Section 6.

The Brookline Housing Authority’s property, the Morse Apartments at 90 Longwood Avenue, was originally constructed in 1974; a comprehensive modernization for accessibility and was performed in 1993, with various minor repair and improvement projects, largely for roof and MEP/Fire Alarm, performed between 1993 and 2018. Currently, Morse is in need of major interior renovations with minor exterior improvements. The scope of work is expected to include kitchen and bath upgrades within the 99 residential units, improvements to building MEP systems, replacement of finishes in common areas, envelope repairs and roof replacement of selected portions of the building and reconfiguration of the 1st floor common areas and BHA offices being undertaken in phased construction with the building partially occupied throughout, necessitating a high degree of coordination and work sequencing on the part of the selected CM firm.

The selected CM firm will provide design input, preconstruction services, and construction phases management services as preliminary defined in the RFQ.

The project is currently in Schematic Design with design development documents scheduled for delivery over the Summer months and construction anticipated to start by April 2020. The project construction budget is approximately $15 million.

SOQs will be received until July 17th at 3pm at the BHA Offices attention: Maria Maffei, 90 Longwood Avenue, Brookline MA 02446.
