Birmingham, Alabama 35212

The Birmingham Airport Authority (hereafter referred to as the “Authority”) is seeking professional Architectural and Engineering Design services from a Consulting Firm and/or team to plan and design Quick Turn Around (QTA) Facilities for the rental car tenant agencies at the airport. The Birmingham-Shuttlesworth International Airport serves the five-county Metropolitan Area by providing essential air services for passengers, air cargo, and other aviation–related needs. The airport’s parking deck is located directly adjacent to the terminal building, separated by the main entrance roadway. The rental car brands (hereafter referred to as “RAC”) currently operate from counters located inside the airport parking deck on the ground level. The RAC pick-up and return services are also situated on the ground level near the RAC counters, in the parking deck, and therefore require no bus transportation to and from the terminal building.

Any and all questions are to be directed to the Project Manager, Mr. Lowrenzo Taylor, via email; ltaylor@flybirmingham.com. Request for Qualifications (RFQ) packages can be procured via the Airport website, www.flybirmingham.com, beginning, Monday, September 12, 2016.

A Pre-Submittal Conference will be held on Thursday, September 15, 2016, starting at 2:00 p.m. local time at the Birmingham-Shuttlesworth International Airport’s Meeting Room B. This meeting room is situated on the Terminal building’s lower level, adjacent to the Birmingham Police Department Substation, near the escalators, located at 5900 Airport Highway, Birmingham, Alabama 35212.

All interested participants are strongly urged to attend this conference.

DBE Policy: It is the policy of the Birmingham Airport Authority (Authority) that DBEs as defined in 49CFR Part 26, will have maximum opportunity to participate in the performance of all Authority projects and the bidders will take all necessary and reasonable steps to ensure that DBEs have the maximum opportunity to compete for and perform subcontracts. Additional DBE information is contained in the full Request for Statement of Qualifications packages.

IMPORTANT BIDDER INFORMATION

Bidders are expected to prepare their bid to include all necessary material, labor, bonds, permits, overhead, profit, taxes, insurance, etc. costs. It is not the City’s obligation to bring mistakes/omissions in bid to bidder’s attention.

IMPORTANT BIDDER INFORMATION

Bidders are expected to prepare their bid to include all necessary material, labor, bonds, permits, overhead, profit, taxes, insurance, etc. costs. It is not the City’s obligation to bring mistakes/omissions in bid to bidder’s attention. If after bid opening, a bidder determines he has a mistake in bid, he may seek withdrawal of his bid without forfeiting his bond, if the request is in writing within three (3) work days after the bid opening, and is accompanied by clear and convincing evidence of the mistake.

All cashier’s checks or bid bonds will be returned immediately after bids are checked and tabulated to all except the three (3) lowest bona fide bidders. Bid bonds shall be returned to the three (3) lowest bona fide bidders when the contract is signed and performance and payment bonds and insurance are furnished by the successful bidder. If award is not made within fifteen (15) days after bid opening, all bid guarantees will be returned except for those of the potentially successful bidders. If after sixty (60) days, no award has been made, all bids shall be rejected and the potentially successful bidder’s guarantee will be returned unless the bidder agrees in writing to a time extension. If a time extension is effected, bidder may substitute any cashier’s check for a satisfactory bid bond.

Any contract resulting from this Invitation to Bid shall not be assignable without prior written consent of the City. Under no conditions, shall the contract be assigned to an unsuccessful bidder whose bid was rejected as non-responsive and/or non-responsible.

A Notice to Proceed will be issued by the City within fifteen (15) days after final contract execution unless both parties agree in writing to a longer period of time.

Special attention is called to the applicability of the Birmingham Plan-Construction Industry Program to the project. Under this Program, the utilization of Minority Business Enterprises and Disadvantaged Business Enterprises (MBE/DBE) is encouraged on a voluntary basis. The Construction Industry Authority established a system of floating MBD/DBE goals which may differ from year to year and project to project.  Overall, these goals shall not be less than the historical participation of MBD/DBE’s in construction projects of the City and its agencies. Additional information about this Program is contained in the Project Manual and may be obtained from the Executive Director, Birmingham Construction Industry Authority at 3600 4th Avenue, South, Birmingham, Alabama  35222 (Telephone:  205-324-6202). For federally funded contracts, the provisions of the President’s Executive Order 11246 and federal agency regulations requiring affirmative action to achieve employment and utilization of minority persons and business will apply.

As a matter of public policy, the City of Birmingham agrees to make opportunities available to the maximum extent possible, to actively include Historically Underutilized Business Enterprises (HUBE’s) such as architectural firms, engineering firms, investment banking firms, other professional consultant services providers, and construction contractors as part of business, economic and community revitalization programs.

Bids must be submitted in a sealed envelope marked: MEMORIAL PARK RECREATION CENTER DUGOUTS ADDITION may be hand delivered to Conference Room 215 City Hall, Birmingham, Alabama, or mailed to:  City of Birmingham Planning, Engineering and Permits Department, Architectural Division, Room 220 City Hall, 710 North 20th Street, Birmingham, Alabama 35203.
