The University of Manitoba (the University) intends to pre-qualify General, Mechanical, and
Electrical Contractors. The University will retain one of the Pre-qualified General Contracting firms
to provide full General Contracting services for the School of Art Building, a twenty two million
dollar new building built on the site east of Tache Hall and north of the Drake Centre. This project
will be tendered in two phases under separate contracts. The Phase 1 Foundation tender ($2M) is
underway and the Phase 2 Building tender ($22M) is anticipated for May 2010. This Pre-
qualification request is for the Phase 2 portion of the project which will involve a General Contractor
and all supporting sub-trades tendering to and working under the selected General Contractor. Only
General, Mechanical, and Electrical Contractors who have pre-qualified specifically for this
project with the University of Manitoba will be allowed to submit a Phase 2 Building tender.

Contractors are encouraged to ask questions and seek clarification in order to provide the best
possible response to this Pre-qualification Statement.

Firms are invited to submit a Pre-qualification Statement on the forms outlined in the following
pages. Only the requested information should be included in the proposal response. Only the
requested information will be evaluated and rated.

The University reserves the right to suspend the pre-qualification status of any contractor at their
sole discretion, including but not limited to a bidder that is, or has been in a legal dispute with the
University or other entity.

Following the proposal evaluations, the University will tender the work described in Section 1.0 to
the General Contracting Firms pre-qualified for this project. The General Contractor must, in their
tender submission, select tender pricing from the University of Manitoba list of pre-qualified
Mechanical, and Electrical Contractors approved for this project. For the tender submission,
Electrical Contractors must either be AMP certified (and AMP listed) or carry an AMP
certified (and AMP listed) contractor for the Voice Data portions of the work.

1.0    Description of the Work – New School of Art Building 343

       1.1     General
       The new School of Art Building will be an educational gallery / studio facility for the
       University of Manitoba’s School of Art. Located on the east end of the existing century-old
       Tache Hall residence, the School of Art will be the first building in the redevelopment of
       Tache Hall into the new Marcel A. Desautels Faculty of Music and School of Art Complex.
       The new School of Art Building is being designed to attain a LEED Silver designation.

       It is anticipated that the Phase 2 Building tender will be issued in May 2010 with an urgent
       completion schedule to meet the target completion dates set by the funding requirements of
       the Knowledge Infrastructure Program federal stimulus funding.

       The total value of Phase 2 construction is estimated to be in the range of $22,000,000. The
       respective scopes of work are estimated in the range of: Mechanical $4,000,000, Electrical

       1.2     Architectural
       The new School of Art Building is a three storey building plus one level below grade and has
       a gross area of 69,000ft2. The basement level contains a 120 seat lecture theatre, an
       acoustically controlled soundstage, and support/service spaces. Level 100 is the connection
       level linking the School of Art Building to the Drake Centre and Tier Building via the
       University’s below grade tunnel infrastructure. A future link is planned to Tache Hall. All
       adjacent buildings will be occupied throughout construction of the new building.

       Level 200 (grade level) contains the public functions of the building. In addition to the main
       entrance and foyer, this level contains a large gallery, artwork archive vault, and support
       functions. A grand stair, located directly off of the lobby interconnects all four levels,
       leading up to a clerestory lit atrium. Levels 300 and 400 contain classrooms, a digital suite,
       studios, workshops, and office space.

       The building’s envelope is a combination of aluminum curtain wall on the north Dafoe Road
       elevation and an insulated metal panel wall system on the remaining elevations. The east and
       south facades feature a “green living wall” supported by a full-height aluminum screen
       suspended in front of the insulated metal panel.

       Floor plans and elevations are attached. Please note that these are preliminary drawings,
       subject to change.

1.3    Structure
Level 100 (below grade) will be a 175mm thick 2-way structural concrete slab set on 200mm
shearmat, designed to meet a 100psf live load. Thickened slab bands will be required where
the slab sits on pile caps. Typical floors (Levels 200, 300, 400) will be a cast-in-place
concrete slab, designed to meet a 100psf live load, set on cast-in-place concrete columns.
Slab thicknesses and supporting beams will vary depending on spans. The roof will be
structural steel (beams, joists and deck) supported on tubular HSS columns.

1.4    Mechanical

     Plumbing risers for domestic hot water, domestic hot water recirculation, and
      domestic cold water will be routed through risers from Level 100 to washrooms and
      other fixtures throughout the building.
     Domestic hot water will be provided with a steam to hot water heat exchanger and
      storage tank. An electric hot water heater will also be provided for back-up during the
      annual steam plant shut-down.
     Plumbing drainage and vent risers will be routed throughout the building similar to
      the water supply piping.
     Domestic water supply, sanitary sewer, and storm drains will be connected to services
      located on the University property.
