These projects are to demonstrate the value of true integrated design that balances aesthetics, cost, constructability, and reliability; create environmentally responsible and superior workplaces for civilian Federal employees; and give contemporary form and meaning to our democratic values. In this context, GSA announces an opportunity for Design Excellence in public architecture for performance of Architectural-Engineering Design in accordance with GSA quality standards and requirements. As required by law, the facility will meet Federal Energy Goals and security requirements and the facility will be designed in metric units. The project will be at a minimum LEED Gold. PROJECT DESCRIPTIONThis project is for the new construction of a building for the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) in accordance with their Repair by Replacement program. The project will require the demolition of an existing building, and in its place, creation of a new three-story Research Support Building of approximately 100,000 gross square feet (GSF). NASA is in the process of creating a new centralized downtown campus area at Lewis Field with the Research Support Building being at its new central hub. The Research Support building will house support offices such as a credit union, cafeteria, etc on the first floor and federal office space on the 2nd and 3rd floors. The proposed building will be located at NASA's Glenn Research Center (GRC) located on Lewis Field in Cleveland, Ohio. This new project will need to be responsive to NASA's overall campus and master plan and is adjacent to a National Register Historic District. SCOPE OF WORKThe scope of professional services will require at a minimum: professional architectural, landscape architectural, engineering, interior design, and related consulting services for concept design documents, design development documents, construction documents, specifications, cost estimates, value engineering services, BIM, computer-aided design and drafting (CADD), LEED administration, and post-construction contract services (PCCS) for the new three-story Research Support Building. The project is also to include GSA design standards and NASA Procedural Requirements (NPR) for secure facilities; conformance to the P-100 (Facility Standards for Public Buildings), including at a minimum LEED Gold requirements; and customer agency requirements.
