                          SECTION A - STATEMENT OF NEEDS


      Project Name:          University of Virginia
                             Blandy Field Lab and
                             Peetwood Pavilion Enclosure
                             Charlottesville, Virginia
                             Project Code: 207-B1160-000 (Field Lab)
                                               N/A         (Peetwood)

      Owner:                 The Commonwealth of Virginia and The Rector and Visitors of the
                             University of Virginia (University)

      A/E:                   Train and Partners Architects, Charlottesville, VA

      Location of Project:   Blandy Experimental Farm
                             400 Farm Lane
                             Boyce, VA


      The University seeks to retain a General Contractor to join our team to provide
      construction services for the University in accordance with the provisions of the
      University of Virginia Higher Education Capital Outlay Manual. The project construction
      documents will be 100% complete and the contract will be awarded on a Competitive
      Negotiation Contractor - Fixed Price basis.

      Blandy Experimental Farm has served as a biological and environmental sciences field
      station since 1927, with the mission to increase understanding of the natural world
      through research and education. Its 700 acres of fields, forest, and wetlands in rural
      Clarke County support the research of undergraduates, graduate students, and faculty
      from the University of Virginia and other institutions. Blandy also hosts the State
      Arboretum of Virginia, a 170-acre collection of nearly 8,000 trees and shrubs that serve
      as the flagship of a robust environmental education outreach program. Blandy seeks a
      single contractor to construct a new facility and improve an existing facility in support of
      its educational mission at the Blandy Experimental Farm in Boyce, Virginia.

      Scope of Project:

      A new laboratory building will provide student and faculty researchers with modern
      facilities, enabling them to continue the program’s growth and prominence in the field.
      The Laboratory Building is the first step in creating a research precinct as part of the
      Blandy Master Plan. Part of the plan’s mission is to increase the prominence of the
      University’s research role by developing a research area, which will be to the east of the
      main entry road to the Arboretum.

      The Field Lab is a single story 4,258 gsf structure divided into two individual labs, a
                                          Page 3 of 21
      large open shared lab, a fume hood room, two environmentally controlled rooms,
      processing space, and a conference room. The University would like the Field Lab
      completed in time for the summer 2012 research season. Adjacent facilities such as the
      temporary research lab housed in a nearby trailer, a maintenance barn, and an education
      building, will remain open through construction.

      Peetwood Pavilion is used as outdoor educational space for K-12 programs and
      occasionally for evening programs for adult education. Use of the space has been limited
      by gusting winds, rain, and cold. The siting of Peetwood Pavilion was chosen for its
      exceptional views of the arboretum to the west; its connectivity to the community garden
      and to the loop road is key. The Peetwood Pavilion project will enclose the pavilion to
      improve the use of the building and lengthen the season of use. The enclosure will consist
      primarily of the addition of aluminum frame garage doors in-filled with tempered glass.
      The Peetwood Pavilion is booked for use through mid-November, and the enclosure
      project work is to be performed between mid-November, 2011 and mid-March, 2012.

      The Drawings and Specifications take precedence over any discrepancies within this section A.1.

             Virginia Contractor’s Registration Number and Date of Registration

               Charlottesville, VA 22904-4892 (U.S. Mail)

                                             Page 5 of 21
      Proposals may be hand delivered to the above address by the date and time noted. The Firm
      should not place any other correspondence or other proposals in the envelope or package. The
      Firm shall make no other distribution of the proposal. The University will not accept telephonic,
      emailed, or faxed proposals.


      B.2.1 Firm Representative
      An authorized representative of the Firm shall sign the proposals.

      B.2.2 Completeness and Clarity
      Firms should prepare proposals simply, providing a straightforward, concise description of
      capabilities to satisfy the requirements of this RFP. Firms should place emphasis on completeness
      and clarity of content so that the University may properly evaluate the Firm's ability to provide
      the required services. Firms should answer in full, without exception, all requests for items of
      information and questions. If copies of other documents will answer the question completely, the
      Firm may attach and clearly label the documents as to which question or item they apply. Failure
      to submit all information requested may result in the University requiring prompt submission of
      missing information and/or giving a lowered evaluation of the proposal. The University may
      reject proposals that are substantially incomplete or that lack key information.

      B.2.3 Proposal Organization -- Reference this RFP
      The Firm should number all pages of the Technical and Price proposals separately. The proposals
      should reference the corresponding section letter and paragraph number of this RFP where
      applicable. It is also helpful to repeat the text of the requirement as it appears in this RFP. If a
      response covers more than one page of this RFP, the Firm should repeat at the top of the next
      page the section letter and paragraph number. The proposal should contain a table of contents that
      cross-references these RFP requirements. Other information that may assist the University in
      evaluating the Firm’s proposal, which does not fall within any of the requirements of this RFP,
      should be inserted at an appropriate place or be attached at the end of the proposal and designated
      as additional material. Proposals that the Firm does not organize in this manner risk elimination
      from consideration or lowered evaluations, if the evaluators are unable to determine where the
      proposal specifically addresses the requirements.

      B.2.4 Single Volumes
      Where possible all materials submitted should be fully recyclable. The Technical Proposal
      should be collated on standard letter-sized paper and preferably clipped together without binding
      into a single volume. These single volumes should contain all documentation that the firm
      submits with the proposal. To conserve paper, double sided printing is strongly encouraged. The
      Price Proposal should be submitted in a separate envelope.

      B.2.5 Ownership of Information
      All data, materials, and documentation originated and prepared for the University pursuant to this
      RFP shall belong exclusively to the University.


      The University requires that the following items must be included to constitute a complete

      B.3.1   Technical Proposal

                                            Page 6 of 21
      The Selection Committee will be looking for the proposal that presents the best plan to achieve a
      successful project. The information requested in the Technical Proposal Format represents the
      services, experience, and capabilities considered to be most important to manage and administer
      the Blandy Field Lab & Peetwood Pavilion Enclosure Projects. The University provides this
      format for the Firm to accurately respond to the technical evaluation factors listed in Section C -
      Evaluation and Award Criteria. The contents shall consist of:

             Completed and signed Price Proposal Form, Attachment D.3.
             A Bid Bond in the amount of 5% of the sealed Price Proposal on amounts of $1,000,000
              or more.
             A proposal that includes State sales tax in the base price. The Blandy Field Lab &
              Peetwood Pavilion Enclosure Projects are not exempt from State sales tax.


      The University will hold an optional pre-proposal conference and site visit at 11:00 A.M. local
      prevailing time on the date shown in section A.2 Project Schedule at the Parkfield Learning
      Center at Blandy Farm. The purpose of this conference is to allow potential Firms an opportunity
      to present questions and obtain clarification of any facet of this RFP. Technical and contracting
      personnel will be available to discuss the scope of services and respond to questions. To facilitate
      responses and to expedite the conference, the University requests interested firms to submit
      questions to the University’s Project Manager in writing to arrive no later than 4:00 P.M. two
      business days prior to the conference. Submission by email to is

      Since the provisions of Section 2.2-4330 of the Code of Virginia provide only for the withdrawal
      of bids during the competitive sealed bid process and since the Code of Virginia makes no
      provision for withdrawal of proposals during the competitive negotiation process, the following
      procedures are established for the withdrawal of a proposal during the competitive negotiation
      process due to errors in the Cost Proposal:

      B.9.1 A Firm may withdraw the entire proposal from consideration if a mistake was made, in
      the Firm’s good faith, and the mistake was a clerical mistake as opposed to a judgment mistake,
      and was actually due to an unintentional arithmetic error or an unintentional omission of a
      quantity of the work, labor or material, made directly in the compilation of the Cost Proposal. The
      mistake must be clearly shown by inspection of the original work papers, documents and
      materials actually used in the preparation of the proposal for which withdrawal is being sought.
      The Firm shall submit the original work papers, documents, and materials used in the preparation
      of the Price Proposal within 24 hours after the date and time fixed for the submission of
      proposals. The work papers shall be delivered by the Firm in person or by registered mail to the
      address used for the RFP response.

      B.9.2 The Firm shall have 24 hours from the time established for submission of proposals to
      provide, in writing, any claim of a mistake as defined herein and withdraw his entire proposal,
      both Price and Technical. Such mistake shall be proven only from the original work papers, docu-
      ments and materials delivered as required herein.

      B.9.3 No proposal may be withdrawn under this section when the result would be the awarding
      of the Contract to the same Firm for another proposal from the same Team or to any other Team
      in which the Firm claiming error is also a participant or in which the Firm claiming error has
      more than a 5% financial interest.

      B.9.4 No Firm or member of the offering team which has been permitted to withdraw a
      proposal shall for compensation, supply any material, labor or design services to, or perform any
      subcontract or other work agreement for the person or Firm to whom the Contract is awarded or
      otherwise benefit, directly or indirectly, from the performance of the project for which the
      withdrawn proposal was submitted.

      B.9.5 If the Committee denies the withdrawal of a proposal under the provisions of this section,
      it shall notify the Firm, in writing, stating the reasons for the Committee’s decision.

              The highest technical proposal will be assigned a score of 50. Other scores will be
              arrived at by the following formula:
                        Score of proposal being evaluated       x 50 = Technical Score
                        Highest technical score evaluated

              The University may request the Firm to clarify portions of its Technical Proposal during
              the evaluation process.

              Rejection of Proposals: The University can reject a proposal as "technically
              unacceptable" without considering price.

      C.2.2   Evaluation of Price Proposal
              The price factor evaluation will be based on the Total Base Price including all sub-parts
              as submitted on the original Price Proposal Form received from the firm at the legally
              advertised and appointed date and time.

              The lowest Total Base Price proposal will be assigned a score of 50. Other scores will be
              arrived at by the following formula:
                        Lowest total base price proposal amount          x 50 = Price Score
                        Total base price of proposal being evaluated

      C.2.3   Total Score
              To determine the successful Firm, the total of the technical and cost scores will be added
              to arrive at a total score for each proposal. The technical and cost scores will each be
              weighed as 50% of the total score. As proposals become equal in technical merit, the
              evaluated Price becomes more important.

                                            Page 10 of 21

      The University will select one or more Firms that it deems to be fully qualified and best suited
      among those submitting proposals based on the evaluation criteria included in this RFP, including
      price. The University may then conduct negotiations with the Firm(s) so selected. The University
      shall consider price, but it need not be the sole determining factor in the award. After the
      University conducts negotiations with each Firm so selected, the University shall select the
      Firm(s) that, in its opinion, has made the best proposal, and shall issue a Notice(s) of Intent to
      Award. The University may cancel this RFP or reject proposals at any time before the award, and
      is not required to furnish a statement of the reason the University did not deem a particular
      proposal the most advantageous (Section 2.2-4354D, Code of Virginia). Should the University
      determine in writing and in its sole discretion that only one Firm is fully qualified, or that one
      Firm is clearly more highly qualified than the others under consideration, the University may
      negotiate a contract or award a contract without further negotiation and, with the consent of the
      Chief Facilities Officer (CFO), award it to that Firm. The award document will be the Contract in
      the form set out in Attachment D.4. incorporating by reference all the requirements, terms, and
      conditions of this RFP and the Firm's proposal as negotiated.

      The University intends to select a Firm(s) on the basis of proposals received in response to this
      Request for Proposal and any other information it obtains from other sources regarding the Firm.


      The award will be for a Firm as Contractor that provides a fixed price to complete all the work.
      The HECO-9 Form of contract will be used which references Form HECO-7, General Conditions
      of the Construction Contract.


      Public Notice of Award or announcement of the decision to award will be posted on the public
      and information board in the hallway inside the entrance to the University of Virginia, Facilities
      Management, Office of Contract Administration, 1000 Ednam Center, Suite 100, Charlottesville,
