Dabney Hall HVAC Evaluation & Upgrade- Request for General Contractor Prequalification Submittals

North Carolina State University is seeking qualification statements from general contractors for HVAC improvements to Dabney Hall, located on North Campus Precinct. Dabney Hall, originally constructed in 1969, is a 135,000 square foot, 9 story building, housing primarily the department of chemistry. Issues of odors, re-entrainment, insufficient supply air, insufficient exhaust, and balancing exist in the building.  A recent study conducted of the HVAC, emergency power, and life safety systems identified system deficiencies that require correction for improved HVAC system performance.

This project will consist of new HVAC terminal unit equipment and modifications to the existing ductwork systems. A new HVAC DDC control system will be installed providing for integration of HVAC equipment under one control system. Commissioning shall cover the “Whole Building”, both existing and new complete.

In addition to the project focusing on HVAC upgrades throughout the building scope will include renovation of approximately 4,000 SF of existing laboratory and office space on the ground floor.

The project will be completed concurrent with normal research, teaching, and administrative support activities. An occupied renovation of this magnitude will require work to be completed according to a predetermined phasing plan. After hours work and constrained utility shutdown time periods will be expected.

The scope of work lends itself to be best managed by a general contractor that has extensive experience working typical occupied lab HVAC renovations on a college campus and the ability to demonstrate such managing a team of subcontracted professionals. Proven experience in working on Higher Education Projects in a congested urban campus with proven success at communicating and coordinating work plans to avoid disruptions to on-going Campus activities and operations is required.

To be considered, the contractor must obtain an application package from the NC State University Project Manager and submit a sealed, fully completed qualification document by 5:00 PM, 3/29/18, to Damian Lallathin, project manager, at Administrative Services Building III, 2701 Sullivan Dr., Suite 331, NCSU, Campus Box 7520, Raleigh, NC 27695-7520.  Application packages will be available electronically after 3/04/18.  Please contact the project manager via email (preferred) or phone to request a package.  Three (3) hard copies of completed qualification packages must be submitted to the project manager.  Completed qualification packages will not be accepted electronically.
