Rigging Replacement Stewart Theater – Talley – Request for General Contractor Prequalification

Due to a low response, North Carolina State University is seeking qualification statements from general contractors for improvements to Rigging Replacement Stewart Theater – Talley, located on Central Campus.  The project scope includes removal of the existing rigging equipment above the Stewart Theater and installation of all new assemblies. The new assemblies will include static, manually and electrically operated equipment assemblies, systems, and components required for locating scenic, acoustic, lighting, and masking elements in variable vertical and horizontal planes. The project will install a tension wire grid consisting of frames supporting a woven wire rope tension grid. The grid shall provide a serviceable walking surface for technical personnel for access to and hanging locations for performance lighting and performance equipment. The work also includes the installation of electrical boxes and conduit for connections for the motorized equipment associated with the rigging. Some retrofitting of the fire protection piping and valves for the sprinkler system will also be required.

To qualify, the contractor must have a general contractor’s license in the State of North Carolina as well as applicable bonding requirements.  The contractor must show comparable work experience, both in complexity and dollar value and preferably in a University campus environment, to the scope of work outlined above.

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 3:00 PM, October 19, 2018, to Laura L. Zaytoun, 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 October 7, 2018.  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.

NC State University has an affirmative policy of fostering, promoting, and conducting business with women and minority-owned enterprises.  Women and minority contractors are encouraged to participate in the pre-qualification process.
