Request for Qualifications: Trade Contractor Services

Revitalization of 116 Norfolk St. Apartments-Project 1319

The Cambridge Housing Authority (CHA) is Re-Advertising and invites qualified Trade Contractor (TC) firms to submit a Statement of Qualifications (SOQ) for the Revitalization of 116 Norfolk St Apartments, as designed by HMFH Architects, to the Cambridge Housing Authority, 362 Green St., third floor, Cambridge, MA. 02139 no later than 12:00 PM on August 11, 2022.

This Request for Qualifications (RFQ) is the first part of a two-step RFP process as provided in M.G.L. c. 149A. Based on the SOQs received in Phase 1, the Trade Contractor prequalification committee will select respondents it deems to be prequalified in accordance with the criteria set forth in the RFQ. In Phase 2, the prequalified respondents will be invited to submit bids in response to an Invitation for Bids which the CHA and Construction Manager anticipate will be issued in August 2022.

This project will be performed under Chapter 149A Construction Manager at Risk. Colantonio is the selected CM firm. This project includes a gut renovation of the 38-unit existing 1907 convent and construction of an attached new building.  Together, the overall square footage of the completed project will be 49,000 square feet, of which approximately 22,000 sf will be a new addition. The construction period will last approximately 21 months from January 2023 to October 2024.  The Norfolk St site is, as named, at 116 Norfolk St, Cambridge, MA, 02139.

At the time the TC submits its SOQ it must have a DCAMM certification in the Trade Contractor category for which it is seeking to be pre-qualified 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 pre-qualified 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 of its FSB trade work
