REQUEST FOR CONSTRUCTION MANAGER-AT-RISK QUALIFICATIONS
UNIVERSITY OF WYOMING
The University of Wyoming invites your response to this request for qualifications to provide Construction Manager At-Risk (CMAR) services to build a new HIGH BAY RESEARCH FACILITY. Your response shall be on the forms or format provided by the University of Wyoming. Requests for project information and qualification forms shall be directed to: Matt Newman, Associate Director, Facilities Planning Office, 1000 E. University Ave., Dept. 3413, University of Wyoming, Laramie, Wyoming 82071. Phone: 307-766-2250 or Fax: 307-766-2255.
The High Bay Research Facility will be a flexibly-configured laboratory building, designed and built to accommodate large-scale experiment configurations in a semi-industrial setting and to provide infrastructure necessary for future expansion in a modular fashion. Other parts of the facility will be designed to house smaller-sized laboratories, offices (walled and open spaces), and conference rooms. The flexible laboratories will consider state-of-the-art energy-efficient heating and ventilating systems with a defined capacity; plumbing with appropriate sand, oil, and similar traps; compressed air; expandable electrical service; and networking (fiber optic) connectivity. Laboratory spaces will be comprised of both traditional and high bay (high ceiling) spaces to accommodate varying and evolving future research needs. Typically, the laboratories will be outfitted at the cost of the research project.
This commission will be awarded to a firm with the qualifications best suited for this University
capital project and the best interests of the University of Wyoming with Wyoming residency being a
consideration. The agreement to be used with this commission will be the Agreement Between
Construction Manager At-Risk and the University of Wyoming Board of Trustees. The Agreement
is not a professional society standard agreement.
Completed University qualification forms shall be received In the Facilities Planning Office identified above by 3:00 p.m. MDT, May 6, 2014. Provide 3 hard copies and 1 electronic copy of your response.
