The Texas A&M University System Office of Facilities Planning & Construction (FP&C) on behalf of the Board of Regents of The Texas A&M University System (Owner) and Texas A&M Health Science Center are soliciting statements of qualifications for selection of an Architect/Engineer (A/E) firm for programming and design for the 23-3258 Engineering and Health Building Renovation (Project), in accordance with the terms, conditions, and requirements set forth in this Request for Qualifications (RFQ).
The A/E team selected will provide programming services and develop a Program of Requirements (POR) that will best define the project’s scope. After approval of the POR the A/E team will begin design services for the project’s scope. The existing 282,000 gross square foot, 17 story steel frame office building with an additional basement and mechanical mezzanine floor, will be renovated using a phased approach appropriate to the current funds available.
The existing 5.5 acre property located at 1020 Holcombe Boulevard, Houston, Texas may include parking and site improvements, façade enhancements including minor balcony upgrades, marble panel replacement, selected window repairs and replacement, and minor roof and wall leak repairs to enhance functionality and curb appeal. The scope of work may also include core upgrades for all floors, whether initially occupied or not, to upgrade the facility to current accessibility standards and electrical, plumbing, and fire and life safety building codes. Early building use concepts include lower floors with large teaching classrooms and tiered auditorium spaces for up to 200 students, makerspaces, local vendor spaces for books, and food spaces to serve building occupants. Program recommendations for low to mid-level floors might contain group meeting and conference rooms, simulation labs for mannequins, exam rooms with nursing stations. Mid-level to upper-level floors may include an anatomy lab, epic training spaces, faculty offices, clinical spaces, and staff spaces for nursing, pharmacy, engineering, IT, and medical. Upper level floors may prove best suited to offices for senior leadership, and large event venue spaces with food service amenities for up to 200 people.
These listed facility amenities and functional spaces represent a broad outline to better refine and inform the respondent A/E team consultant structure for not only professional Revised April 2016 A/E Request for Qualifications Page 7 of 21 programming services, but should also represent the respondent team’s ability to provide standard professional design and construction document services.
