Clermont seeks construction manager for new 18-acre Public Works facility

The city of Clermont is seeking a Construction Manager to lead the coming construction phases for a new 18-acre Public Works facility, according to a Request for Qualifications (RFQ) issued on Wednesday.

Located on Hancock Road east of the Greater Pines subdivision, the project includes the construction of a 6,000-square-foot administration building, a 16,000-square-foot fleet maintenance building, a 5,000-square-foot warehouse, and associated site work to design utility services, drainage and other site-related amenities.


The city's engineer has estimated construction value at $8.5 million for the project.

Clermont first advertised for an architectural firm back in August to design the new Public Works facility. Bentley Architects + Engineers, Inc. won that contract, which is scheduled to go before City Council for approval on March 27.


Clermont wants to enter into a contract with a CM for pre-construction services prior to the 30 percent design submittal. The CM would review plans and advise the city and architect/engineer on constructability of the design, any errors or conflicts.

The CM's scope of services would include all pre-construction, construction and post-construction services. That includes a variety of tasks for pre-construction design (two months), the competitive bid and award phase (two months), and construction and close-out (12 months).

A pre-proposal conference will be held March 23 at 10 a.m. at the City Hall Council Chambers.  Applications are due by April 12 at 2 p.m. to the city's Purchasing Department.

Full documents for RFQ no. 18-021 can be found through Clermont's Current Solicitations webpage.
