PORTLAND – The Oregon Department of Transportation today released a Request for Proposals (RFP) for a Construction Manager/General Contractor (CM/GC) for the Portland-area I-5 Rose Quarter Improvement Project. The CM/GC will provide input during the design phase, including helping to optimize project elements, increase efficiency, and identify and mitigate risks before the start of construction. The CM/GC will help make informed decisions on how to reduce cost, save time, and ensure community values are incorporated during project construction.
The CM/GC project delivery process is a unique effort to create a path that allows for investment in the historic Albina district and is intentional to fit the needs of the I-5 Rose Quarter Improvement Project. This process allows the contractor to join the project team early in design and use a variety of innovative tools for increased community engagement and inclusion of Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) firms and maximizes the opportunity to help build the capacity of minority-owned businesses for current and future projects.
The RFP will remain open for five weeks. A mandatory pre-proposal conference is scheduled for April 28. To be in compliance with the Governor’s Executive Order regarding COVID-19 safety measures, the meeting will be held via video conference or teleconference or both. Find the RFP and pre-proposal conference details at the Oregon Procurement Information Network (ORPIN) website. To access the RFP via ORPIN, you will need to select “Browse” and then “Browse Opportunities.” Here you can access the open opportunities, including the CM/GC RFP for the I-5 Rose Quarter Improvement Project.
