Seminole County is seeking a design consultant to help evaluate the architectural and engineering aspects of redevelopment proposals for the Five Points Operations Complex, according to a $1 million Request for Professional Services (RPS) issued on Friday.
The county previously issued a Public-Private Partnership (P3) bid opportunity in the first week of January, inviting real estate development groups to propose how to design and build a redeveloped Five Points Complex that will consolidate county offices. Those applications are due by April 4.
The site lies off U.S. 17-92 across from the former Flea World property, and currently houses county offices for the sheriff, animal services, state attorney and public defender, along with the John E. Polk Correctional Facility.
Seminole County's vision for the property is to now move civil court operations there, and administrative offices like those of commissioners, staff, property appraiser and tax collector.
This new RPS contract opportunity is for professional engineering and/or architecture consultant services to serve the county during the P3 proposal evaluation, and throughout the design and construction phases.
The consultant must have experience in preparation of P3 selection criteria packages, evaluation of P3 proposals, design plan review and preparation of comments, construction administration, and managing P3 projects during selection of the developer.
The contract would run for five years, with two one-year renewal options, with an estimated value of $1 million.
Proposal packages are due to the county's Purchasing and Contracts Division by Feb. 21 at 2 p.m. An optional pre-proposal meeting will be held on Jan. 31 at the county offices in downtown Sanford.
