FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Sept. 17, 2004
Three qualified teams are selected to bid first design-build project
The City of Kansas City, Mo., has selected three teams from a list of interested bidders to submit their technical and cost proposals on Fire Station No. 14, a new fire department facility at Highway 152 and North Brighton Avenue. Fire Station 14 is the first project to use the design-build method.
The Capital Improvements Management Office issued a request for qualifications for Fire Station 14 on Aug. 3. Interested firms submitted their qualifications to the City on Sept. 3. The selection committee was made up of members from the Kansas City Fire Department and other City employees. The three teams selected to bid the project are:
Titan as the general contractor with Gossen Livingston Associates as the designer of record
Taylor Kelly as the general contractor with International Architects Atelier as the designer of record
Integral Construction Services Inc. as the general contractor with The Hollis & Miller Group as the designer of record.
The three selected teams will now submit two packages: a technical submission providing detailed information relating to how the applicant intends to complete the project, including relevant design information; and a cost submission, including design and construction costs. Each submission will be individually scored, and the firm with the best combined score will be recommended to complete the project.
