ADVERTISEMENT FOR AIR TESTING, ADJUSTING AND BALANCING CONSULTANT

UCLA requests a written response to this Request for Qualifications (RFQ) for the purpose of selecting a Testing, Adjusting and Balancing (TAB) Contractor for the RRUMC Mechanical Air Valve Replacement (UCLA Project #945435.01). The proposed project will test the existing HVAC Mechanical Venturi Valves throughout Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center (RRUMC) for the purpose of identifying failed valves for replacement.

The TAB Contractor will perform an air valve investigation to determine the correct function and operation of the supply, return and exhaust air valves for Air Handling Units (AHU’s) throughout RRUMC. The project area is approximately 900,000 SF of existing space and investigation of the valves is for the entire hospital, with the exception of the West Tower. The investigational cost is anticipated to be approximately $800,000.

Responses to this RFQ should demonstrate experience with testing, adjustment and investigation of air handling systems, in particular Venturi Air Valves. Project experience must also demonstrate familiarity with California Code of Regulations (Title 24), Office of Statewide Health Planning and Development (OSHPD 1 Acute Care) requirements, Department of Public Health (Title 22) licensing requirements, and familiarity with critical care hospital infection control practices.

Final selection and appointment of the Testing, Adjusting and Balancing (TAB) Contractor for the proposed project is contingent upon project approval. The project will be designed to meet the requirements and intent of University of California Regent’s Policy on Sustainable Practices. The project is subject to review and approval by the UC Board of Regents or their delegated authority as well as the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA).

The complete RFQ packet will be available at: http://www.capitalprograms.ucla.edu/Contracts/RFQProjects on Thursday, November 1, 2018. Responses to the RFQ are due by 10:00 a.m. on Monday November 26, 2018. A shortlist of firms will be determined by a screening committee; further steps in the selection process will be at the discretion of the selection committee.

Every effort will be made to ensure that all persons have equal access to contracts and other business opportunities with the University within the limits imposed by law or University policy. Each Candidate Firm may be required to show evidence of its equal employment opportunity policy.

Description of Work
ADVERTISEMENT FOR EXECUTIVE DESIGN PROFESSIONAL - MECHANICAL ENGINEER

UCLA requests a written response to this Request for Qualifications (RFQ) for the purpose of selecting an Executive Design Professional - Mechanical Engineer for the Santa Monica UCLA Medical Center Central Plant Automation Control System Upgrade (UCLA Project #944123). The proposed project examines existing Central Plant Systems at Santa Monica UCLA Medical Center (SMUMC) to provide recommendations for energy efficient sequences of operations and automation. The Executive Design Professional - Mechanical Engineer will identify devices in need of reconfiguration or replacement to accommodate full automation of Central Plant operations. The project requires minimal impacts to Central Plant operations during the life of the project.

The Central Plant maintains and controls the central heating and cooling systems that serve the entire Santa Monica UCLA Medical Center. The SMUMC Central Plant encompasses approximately 17,660 SF in a stand-alone building on the SMUMC campus. The current plant design requires manual operation of plant systems, which is not ideal to maintain energy efficiency. As a result, Central Plant operations are dependent on plant engineers with specialized expertise. The Executive Design Professional - Mechanical Engineer will survey the existing site, verify plant system capacity and provide design solution recommendations in order to configure the plant for fully automated control. The proposed project cost is dependent on the preliminary design phase and scope of the recommendations provided by the Executive Design Professional - Mechanical Engineer. This includes design development and submission to OSHPD for approval.

Final selection and appointment of the engineer for the proposed project is contingent upon project approval. The project will be designed to meet the requirements and intent of University of California Regent’s Policy on Sustainable Practices. The project is subject to review and approval by the UC Board of Regents or their delegated authority as well as the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA).

The complete RFQ packet will be available at: http://www.capitalprograms.ucla.edu/Contracts/RFQProjects on Wednesday, November 14, 2018. Responses to the RFQ are due by 10:00 a.m. on Thursday, December 6, 2018. A shortlist of firms will be determined by a screening committee; further steps in the selection process will be at the discretion of the selection committee.

Every effort will be made to ensure that all persons have equal access to contracts and other business opportunities with the University within the limits imposed by law or University policy. Each Candidate Firm may be required to show evidence of its equal employment opportunity policy.
