COMPANY OVERVIEW:  Weil Construction, Inc. is a certified 8(a), HUBZone, Small Disadvantaged Business specializing in Federal Government construction. Our Website: www.weilconstruction.com

PROJECT: USACE Fort Worth District 8a Direct Award for RENOVATION OF BUILDING 2006 at Fort Sam Houston, Texas.  100% Design Package available. Photo Attached.

DESCRIPTION: Building 2006 consists of three floors and an attic area. The structure is approximately 7200 square feet in size, comprised of load-bearing brick masonry walls around the building perimeter and at key building junctures on the interior. This building was constructed in 1913, as part of a complex of buildings associated with the original Fort Sam Houston hospital and it served as a doctor’s quarters. The building has been renovated numerous times, and each floor of the building now houses various offices for the US Army North, 5th Recruiting Brigade. The building interior consists of a combination of plaster and/or brick walls, many covered with vinyl-covered sheetrock. The floors were generally covered with floor tile or carpet. Drop ceilings consisting of ceiling tile and grid are located in various areas throughout the building. Above the drop ceilings, the original ceiling is generally plaster, and some of the plaster ceilings are covered with painted decorative tin.

The purpose of this project is to renovate all three floors of Building 2006 to provide administrative space for the 5th Recruiting Brigade and to extend the useful life another 25 years and to install a new elevator exterior to the building.  Work includes the following:

Asbestos/Lead-based Paint Abatement.

Exterior improvements: firewater line and sewer line will be constructed for tie into the existing main lines; natural gas and electrical lines needed to service the Building will be installed and tied into existing infrastructure; reinforced concrete pad will be installed as necessary to house new mechanical equipment; ADA Compliant Pathway will be installed between the existing parking lot, located to the north of Building 2006 and Building 2006 (see civil plans); sidewalks/ramps; and limited asphaltic concrete pavement work on adjacent streets as depicted on the plans.

Selective demolition: including the removal / protection of interior historic elements; removal of all exterior doors and windows; selective removal of interior  wall,  doors,  spaces, and  finishes;  removal  of  all  mechanical, electrical,   plumbing,   communications,   and   fire   protection   systems; hazardous material abatement; removal of first, second, and third story porches and stairs on both the north and south sides.

Exterior work includes  replacement  of  all  exterior  doors  and  windows inclusive of steel reinforcing at the jambs on the east side, construction of new  porches  and  stairs  on  the  north  and  south  sides,  replacement  of deteriorated wood framing and decking as required, and site concrete for mechanical equipment and sidewalk replacement as needed.

Interior work includes   the   interior   finish-out   of   the   facility. It encompasses  the  layout  of  functional  spaces,  interior  finishes,  lighting, electrical power distribution, communications, plumbing, and mechanical ventilation / exhaust, fire sprinkler, fire alarm / mass notification, and life safety.

Elevator:  The machine-roomless (MRL) holeless hydraulic elevator will be constructed as an exterior addition on the west side of the building. The elevator shaft will be located approximately 5 feet outside the main building line to create a lobby at each floor. The elevator pit/foundation will be 4 feet deep and cast-in-place concrete.

Antiterrorism and Force Protection (AT/FP) requirements were addressed as part of the renovation of Building 2006. All windows will be replaced in this building, with those on the east side, abutting Dunston Road to be designed for blast loads as result of a blast occurring at a conventional standoff distance of 80 feet from the building.

We are in need of the following:

  • Hazardous Material Abatement
  • Electrical
  • Fire Protection (FA/MNS/Sprinkler)
  • Communications (Fiber and Copper, including new Duct bank install)
  • Concrete
  • Masonry

This constitutes a Request for Proposal (RFP), for a new indefinite delivery indefinite quantity (IDIQ) multiple award contract for construction, repair, and alteration, with design-build and incidental abatement services. The General Services Administration (GSA), Public Buildings Service (PBS), Greater Southwest Region 7, Acquisition Management Division is the office soliciting and will administer the resulting contracts.
In accordance with FAR 52.219-6, this procurement is set aside exclusively for Small Business concerns.
Performance Location:
Counties and parishes within the states of Arkansas, Louisiana, New Mexico, Oklahoma, and Texas (Region 7).
General Description of Scope of Services:
This contract is to provide general construction, repair, and alteration, with design-build and incidental abatement services. The NAICS code for this procurement is 236220 with a size standard of $36.5 million.
This will be a firm fixed price multiple award contract. This PBS Region has been organized into thirteen geographic zones. Awards will be staggered by zone, potentially two zones at a time. All work to be acquired under the contracts will be accomplished by the issuance of individual task orders. The individual task orders to be placed under the contracts will range in dollar value from approximately $2,000 to $3,500,000; however, project values will NOT be equally spread over this range. The Maximum Order Limitation (MOL) for a contract which is primary in only the Small Projects Pool shall be $1,000,000 aggregate for all task orders for each annual period of performance, for each contract, for each zone. The Maximum Order Limitation (MOL) for a contract which is primary in only the Large Projects Pool shall be $4,000,000 aggregate for all task orders for each annual period of performance, for each contract, for each zone. A contract which is primary in both project pools will have a MOL of $5,000,000 aggregate for all task orders for each annual period of performance, for each contract, for each zone. These contract vehicles may be used by both GSA Regional and Field Office personnel. These contracts will be solicited as one (1) year contracts, with four (4) separate one (1) year option periods, for a total potential contract period not to exceed five (5) years. Facilities covered under the scope of this contract include Government owned and leased facilities in counties or parishes within the states of Arkansas, Louisiana, New Mexico, Oklahoma, and Texas.
Services will be required under these contracts on an as-needed basis up to a single task order limit of $3,500,000. Task orders will be prepared based on defined scopes of work for specific projects and issued as firm-fixed price tasks orders.
The base IDIQ contracts will be acquired using Source Selection procedures as identified in FAR 15.3 with a firm-fixed price award to the offerors who provide the best value to the Government. Offerors will be evaluated based on technical merit and price proposals. For this procurement, technical evaluation factors, when combined, are significantly more important than total evaluated price. The trade-off process under the best value approach will be used. The technical evaluation factors in descending order of importance are: 1. Past Performance and 2. Hypothetical Projects.
The Government’s intent is to award up to six (6) IDIQ contracts per zone, to offerors who submit a proposal which will provide the best value to the Government in terms of technical qualifications and price; however, the Government reserves the right to award more or fewer contracts per zone as determined to be necessary.
The Government intends to make award without discussion. Therefore, offerors are requested to submit their initial proposals to the Government on the most favorable terms based on technical and price factors. The Government reserves the right to conduct discussions if the Contracting Officer later determines them to be necessary.
