This project is being performed under Chapter 149A Construction Manager at Risk, Consigli Construction Company is the selected CM firm.  The project includes demolition of the existing 175 unit apartment complex, of which trade contractor participation will be limited, and the new construction of six (6) 4-story apartment buildings with 278 units, and a maintenance building.  Construction will be PHIUS passive house certified.   The construction period will last approximately 36 months and will begin in January 2022, with the potential for an early release of some trades in November 2022.  The Jefferson Park Federal site is located at 1 Jackson Place in Cambridge, MA.

The committee is prequalifying the following Trade Contractor Packages (with estimated amounts as indicated):

  • Elevators ($1,552,000)
  • Resilient Flooring ($3,500,000)
  • Tile ($90,622)

At the time a TC firm submits its SOQ it must have a DCAMM Certification in the Trade Contractor Category for which it is seeking to be prequalified and submit a copy of its Certificate of Eligibility and Update Statement with its SOQ.  This required SOQ is different from DCAMM Certification; all TC firms must be prequalified for this project, even if the TC firm is already DCAMM Certified in the trade category for which it is applying.  The successful respondent must be able to obtain bonding for the full cost for its FSB trade work.
