The city of Sandy Springs on Oct. 2 issued a request for qualifications (RFQ) for a construction manager to work with city staff and its partners in the design and construction of the civic facilities for the future City Center.

The  firm will assist in the design phase of the project by evaluating cost, schedules and implications of alternative designs, as well as constructability reviews and value engineering.

“The significance of this project is un-paralleled in terms of profile and achieving a sense of ‘place’ for the community,” said Sandy Springs Mayor Rusty Paul in a press release. “Our plan is to assemble the best, and that includes construction management, so that we are best able to transform our vision into the City Center the community deserves.”

The deadline for firms to submit a response to the RFQ is Oct. 30.  Following an evaluation of submissions, qualified firms will be invited to submit to the subsequent RFP on Nov. 17.  A final selection is expected to be determined in early January. Interested firms can review the RFQ documentation on the city’s website at www.sandyspringsga.gov/purchasing.
