Description
New York City Economic Development Corporation (NYCEDC) is seeking qualified firms to construct infrastructure and resiliency improvements at Coney Island Hospital. Due its location, the hospital is vulnerable to extreme coastal storms and in October 2012, the facility suffered extensive flood damage as a result of Superstorm Sandy. Since then the hospital has temporarily restored the damaged areas and, working with the Federal Emergency Management Agency (“FEMA”), have developed plans to mitigate damage from future storms and flooding.
NYCEDC, as the lead of an interagency team, is now focused on the Major Work project. The construction of the Coney Island Hospital campus project is currently envisioned to build a new resilient acute care hospital tower to be known as the Critical Services Structure (“CSS”) and to include the following work:
• Provide on-site valet parking for 300 cars
• Demolition of existing buildings, including Hammett Pavilion, Building 6, and various existing site improvements;
• Renovation and selective demolition of 60,000 gross sq. feet including portions of the existing Main Building and Tower Building; and
• Build a new permanent flood mitigation structure (s) (e.g. flood wall) around the campus.

NYCEDC is seeking qualifications for the following types of construction contractors:
• Concrete Contractors • Abatement Contractors • Demolition Contractors • Electricians • Plumbers • Elevator Contractor Scaffolding/Sidewalk bridge • Mechanical – HVAC • Fire Protection • Masonry • Site/Civil Work • Low voltage electrician • Site Fencing • Painting • Carpentry • MEP Insulation • Steel Work • Roofing and Waterproofing • Spray on Fire Proofing • Tile Work • Flooring • Windows • General Contractors • Exterior Façade

NYCEDC plans to select contractors on the basis of factors stated in the RFQ which include, but are not limited to: the firm’s demonstrated experience and expertise in the particular trade for which the firm is submitting its qualifications; the firm’s composition and experience in coordinating and implementing similar projects; the firm’s familiarity with public approvals, permitting and experience working with multiple governmental agencies; the firm’s record regarding accidents and lost work days on construction projects; and the firm’s resources available for the Project.
The Services described above will require extensive coordination and collaboration among the Construction Management firm (the “CM”) hired by NYCEDC, the other construction trades working within the Project Site, and the Project Team.
NYCEDC has contracted with NBBJ to lead the design effort for all contract documents associated with the Services. The CM will provide construction management services for the Project, including holding all construction subcontracts for the Project.
NYCEDC anticipates that initial projects will be procured in Q1 2017. Design packages will continue to be completed and released periodically with final projects’ anticipated completion in May 2022. NYCEDC will issue advertisements in the City Record and provide a notice on EDC’s procurement website (www.nycedc.com) of forthcoming design packages to be issued by the CM. Once NYCEDC posts an advertisement for a forthcoming design package, firms will have approximately 30 days to provide their qualifications in order to be considered for the prequalified list of firms who will receive the bid package from the CM.
It is the policy of NYCEDC to comply with all federal, state and City laws and regulations which prohibit unlawful discrimination because of race, creed, color, national origin, sex, age, disability, marital status and other protected category and to take affirmative action in working with contracting parties to ensure certified Minority and Women-owned Business Enterprises (MWBEs) share in the economic opportunities generated by NYCEDC’s projects and initiatives.
The HHC Coney Island Hospital Major Work has a Minority and Women Owned Business Enterprises (“M/WBE”) participation goal of 30 percent . Companies who have been certified with the Empire State Development’s Division of Minority and Women’s Owned Business Development as M/WBE are strongly encouraged to apply to this RFQ. To learn more about M/WBE certification and NYCEDC’s M/WBE program, please visit http://www.nycedc.com/opportunitymwdbe.
An optional informational session will be held on Tuesday, November 22, 2016 at 11:00 am at NYCEDC. Those who wish to attend should RSVP by email to CIHRFQ@edc.nyc on or before November 21, 2016.

Respondents may submit questions and/or request clarifications regarding the RFQ in writing to NYCEDC on an ongoing basis. Questions should be directed to CIHRFQ@edc.nyc. If NYCEDC determines that answers will provide material clarification to the RFQ, questions will be answered within two (2) weeks of receipt and NYCEDC shall post such answers on the RFQ website available through www.nycedc.com/RFP, so as to be available to all respondents. Note that the CM will separately manage the Question and Answer process for each bid package.
The RFQ is available for in-person pick-up between 9:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, from NYCEDC.

As outlined in the RFQ, we are requesting qualifications for all the trades listed above. However, the initial packages include demolition, abatement, and site work. Those interested in these initial packages along with the other trades listed above are required to respond to the RFQ by 4:00pm on 12/22/2016. Respondents who do not submit qualifications by this date may not be included in the initial packages.

This RFQ will be open for submissions during the duration of the procurement phase for the Project. NYCEDC will advertise in the City Record when qualifications for a specific sub-project included in the Project are due to ensure that firms have adequate time to respond to the RFQ and have those responses reviewed by the CM to create the pre-qualified list of firms to receive the RFP for the specific sub-project.
As noted above, while the SOQs for the initial packages are due by 4:00pm on 12/22/16, design packages will continue to be completed and released periodically with final projects’ anticipated completion in May 31, 2022 by 4:00pm. Firms responding to multiple trades may submit one comprehensive SOQ for all trades. Four (4) hard copies of the SOQ and attachments as well as four (4) jump drives must be submitted.
