UCLA Health requests a written response to this Request for Qualifications (RFQ) to select up to six Executive Architect firms to design a series of projects identified in the UCLA Health Equipment Replacement Master Plan (Project # CP1539). UCLA Health is anticipating the need for multiple individual equipment replacement projects within various University owned Acute Care (OSHPD 1) and Ambulatory Care (OSHPD 3) facilities at the UCLA Westwood, Santa Monica Health and West Valley campuses. The buildings included in this RFQ are as follows:

1. Westwood
a) Acute Care (OSHPD 1) - Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center (RRUMC)

b) Ambulatory Care (OSHPD 3) - Santa Monica Medical Office Building (SMMOB)

3. West Valley

Projects initiated under this RFQ will be funded between July 2024 and June 2027; located in one of the above listed buildings and have project scopes that include the replacement of Imaging Systems or Sterile Processing equipment.

The University will assign projects based on the best alignment of each Executive Architect firm qualifications, relevant experience and available staffing to support each specific proposed project scope and scheduling requirements.

The construction cost for this series of equipment replacement projects has not yet been determined and will be defined by each individual project’s scope of work and phasing requirements. Each individual project scope of work may be executed through several phased and separate incremental projects. The anticipated project cost range may be between approximately $500K-$5M per individual project, with an expected total cost for the entire master plan scope of work being between $5M-$50M per fiscal year.

The University will select the Executive Architect(s) based on qualifications submitted in response to this RFQ. The selection committee will base their review of the Executive Architects submitted proposals and selection on the identified Selection Criteria (Attachment A). The University may select one or more firms for each Health campus and/or individual Health campus building.

Candidate firms may submit for one or more of the Health campuses, or for one or multiple health campus buildings. Candidates do not need to submit separate sets of booklets if submitting for multiple campuses or buildings. Candidates may use the same submittal for all sites, as long as the Campus or building(s) of interest are appropriately identified in your cover letter and all submittal requirements are completed.

The final selection and appointment of the Executive Architect is contingent upon project approval by the UC Board of Regents or their delegated authority. This RFQ is for complete design services; however, the University reserves the right to defer negotiations for services other than pre-design studies until the completion of the pre-design phase.

The complete RFQ packet will be available at:
http://www.capitalprograms.ucla.edu/Contracts/RFQProjects on Thursday, June 6, 2024, responses to the RFQ are due by or before 10:00 a.m. on Friday, June 28, 2024. A screening committee will determine a shortlist of firms; further steps in the selection process will be at the selection committee's discretion.

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 LANDSCAPE ARCHITECT

UCLA requests a written response to this Request for Qualifications (RFQ) to select an Executive Landscape Architect for the proposed UCLA Rehabilitation Intervention Program Playout Renovation (Project #906017.01). The playground is located in the southwest zone of the main UCLA campus adjacent to the Rehabilitation Building at 1000 Veteran Ave., Los Angeles, CA 90095. The proposed project site is a 13,000-sf outdoor play area built in 1964 and is used by the Intervention Program to help children with various developmental challenges or disabilities. The department seeks to upgrade the playground to provide increased outdoor and learning opportunities by exploring an enriched environment.

This RFQ will acquire a consultant team consisting of a prime Executive Landscape Architect and their sub-consultants to renovate the playground. UCLA Intervention program partnered with Inclusion Matters by Shane’s Inspiration, an international non-profit that designs inclusive playgrounds and provides educational programs for children with and without disabilities. Together, they developed a concept plan for the play area. Inclusion Matters will continue to be integral to the design process and team selection, providing the design team with a 30% construction document set. The consultant team will utilize these drawings and create the full 100% construction document set. The project scope will involve the renovation of an existing playground to accommodate play equipment as identified by Inclusion Matters.

The construction cost for the project has not yet been determined and is dependent upon phasing. It is anticipated to be $2.5 to $2.9 million, depending on the agreed-upon scope of work.

The final selection and appointment of the Executive Landscape Architect for the proposed project is contingent upon project approval by the University of California Board of Regents or their delegated authority and per the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA). The project is subject to review and approval by the UC Board of Regents or their delegated authority. The design shall comply with the University of California Policy on Sustainable Practices concerning green building design and energy efficiency. The project must meet the California Energy Code (Title 24) energy efficiency standards and apply sustainability principles to the systems, components, and any portions of the renovated spaces.

The selection committee will base their review of the Executive Landscape Architect’s submitted proposals and selection on the Selection Criteria form (Attachment A). This RFQ is for full design services; however, the University reserves the right to defer negotiations concerning services other than pre-design studies until the completion of the pre-design phase.

The complete RFQ packet will be available at:
