Pursuant to §41-16-72 of the Code of Alabama, as amended, Alabama Department of Environmental Management (ADEM) is requesting qualifications from design professionals licensed in the State of Alabama to provide Architectural services for An Office Expansion located at Alabama Department of Environmental Management, General Services Branch, Permits and Services Division, 1400 Coliseum Boulevard, Montgomery, Alabama. The contract will be awarded to one professional firm and the services will be compensated utilizing the Division of Construction Management fee schedule for professional services.

Project General Description and Scope:The scope of work shall include but is not limited to the design of systems and required infrastructure that are typically associated with office expansion projects and interior renovation projects. The office program requirements include two new offices above existing wood framed offices inside the existing General Services Branch facilities.

The electrical and mechanical design will account for existing services.

The estimated construction budget for this project is $ 20,000. The work will be a single project. The owner expects some delay between design and construction administration due to self-performance of portions of the construction phase of the project.
