In partnership with the Michigan Economic Development Corporation, the Downtown Detroit Partnership (DDP) is seeking proposals for a Construction Manager as Constructor (CMc) to revitalize three Downtown Detroit parks: Capitol Park, Grand Circus Park, and Campus Martius Park/Cadillac Square – see project descriptions in RFP-Exhibit A. A single inclusive CMc for all three park projects or a CMc for each individual park project will be selected at the discretion of the DDP. The CMc will be tasked with pre-construction and construction activities to complete the project. Pre-construction activities will include working with the owner and the AE design team to estimate and value engineer the project to fit within budget. Construction activities include permitting and construction of park improvements. Construction scope may include, but is not limited to, the following elements:

Earthwork; utilities; mechanical; underground infrastructure (conduit, vaults, drainage, etc.); concrete foundations; lighting; planters; walls; steps; various stone and other paving surfaces; monument structures; landscaping; small structures or buildings; site furnishings; event and performance sound; lighting; and signage.

The contract or contracts for CMc will be awarded on a cost-plus fee basis with a guaranteed maximum price (GMP) for each of the park projects. The GMP is inclusive of all project costs (direct and indirect) and cannot exceed:

  • Capitol Park:                                                     $3,000,000
  • Grand Circus Park                                           $2,000,000
  • Campus Martius Park/Cadillac Square     $2,475,000

It is estimated that 100% of the construction documents for all project elements will be completed by December 2023. The park projects, as agreed upon by the DDP and the CMc, must be substantially completed by December 31, 2024.

A bidder question and answer session will be held virtually on July 13 at 11am. Please RSVP all members of your team who would like to attend to James Fidler ([email protected]) for login information.
