The Army Corps of Engineers, Philadelphia District intends to award a Firm Fixed Price Contract for the Welch Elementary School/Dover Air Base Middle School Replacement at Dover Air Force Base, Delaware (a restricted access installation).

The work includes construction of a new combined elementary/middle school facility, located at Dover Air Force Base, DE. The new facility will be constructed adjacent to the existing elementary/middle school. The multistory structure will be comprised of approximately 105,550 square feet. The project will utilize clear span (up to 65') or similar construction methods to allow large, open, flexible spaces and will incorporate fully integrated acoustical rated operable wall partitions which contribute to the overall acoustical performance of the building.

The facility will include several spaces with a required STC rating of 60 and numerous spaces with STC ratings of 45 so proper implementation of the acoustical design is a significant aspect of the new school. The school will include 21st Century School concepts such as learning neighborhoods, central hubs surrounded by learning studios, flex labs, science labs, information center, gymnasium, food service area, computer lab, supply areas, specialist rooms, art rooms, music rooms, a performance/commons/dining area, learning impaired rooms, teacher work rooms, counseling areas, storage, administrative offices and other required areas for a fully functioning facility. The school will include several technical items not found in standard administrative facilities such as demonstration PV panels, demonstration weather station, and solar hot water collection; all of which will be connected to an energy dashboard which will display information from these features.

The lighting, water use, and HVAC systems will also require data monitoring points and will also be connected to the energy dashboard. The contract will require proper implementation of safety and security features including providing and installing blast resistant windows in large storefront glass areas for the exterior. Interior corridor glass will meet security requirements with one-minute delay glass. The contract also includes related infrastructure such as parking areas, mechanical rooms, delivery areas, covered walkways, playgrounds and site improvements. The facility will require enhanced commissioning upon completion to validate energy performance and must obtain LEED Silver certification.

Upon completion of the construction of the new facility, the contract will require complete demolition (approx. 126,000 sf) of the existing school (including handling and disposal of limited quantities of asbestos containing materials) and associated site restoration.

The contract will require the contractor to perform the new construction and demolition in phases. The construction site is adjacent to an active school campus and the contractor will be required to ensure site safety and prevent student and public access. School functions will not be interrupted which could require after hours utility connections and/or scheduling weekend work for noise disturbances that could affect student testing. This will ensure current school functions are continuous and not disrupted during construction.

The contract duration for both new construction and demolition is 730-calendar days.

This will be an Unrestricted Sealed Bid solicitation for full & open competition (both large & small businesses). Estimated cost range of the project is $25,000,000 and $100,000,000. Performance and Payment Bonds will be required for 100% of contract award. The NAICS Code for this project is 236220 and the small business size standard is $36.5 Million.
