REQUEST FOR QUALIFICATIONS for Architecture & Engineering Design Services

May 31, 2022

The Broome County Land Bank is soliciting qualifications for architectural & engineering design services at properties to be rehabilitated or demolished and replaced using New York State Community Development Block Grant (“CDBG”) funds. These services are needed for the architectural, structural, mechanical, electrical, and plumbing design of several single and multi-family residential buildings, as well as site design, permitting and construction administration as needed at Land Bank properties intended to be rehabilitated as part of the Land Bank’s Affordable Homes Program or intended to be demolished and replaced using New York State Community Development Block Grant (“CDBG”) funds. The aforementioned services are being solicited at this time to assist the Land Bank in its subrecipient responsibilities of project implementation for New York State CDBG Project No. 135HR125-20 as well as a pending American Rescue Plan Act (“ARPA”) funded Program with the City of Binghamton.

It is the intent of the Land Bank to rehabilitate all single-family and multi-family residential buildings under CDBG Project No. 135HR125-20. However, future grant programs may encompass a demolition and replacement component. Further, it is the Land Bank’s intent to procure Construction Administration services through the Land Bank’s co-development partner, SEPP Inc (“SEPP”). CA services are being solicited as part of this Request for Qualifications in the event that such services become unavailable from SEPP or that such services are necessary in future grant programs. For CDBG Project No. 135HR125-20, firms will be expected to coordinate with SEPP.

Upon receipt of qualification proposals, submittals will be reviewed by a Committee comprised of Land Bank Board Members. It is the intent of the Land Bank to invite several qualified firms to interview for a more detailed in-depth evaluation of qualifications and ability to meet the terms of the proposed contract. The firms interviewed will be asked to address their professional expertise as a part of their interview (and that of their sub-consultant(s)), with the planned scope of services outlined above. Firms should be willing and able to provide additional information that may be required by the selection committee.

Interested parties should submit all required submittals to Jessica Haas by 4:00 PM on May 30th, 2022 by mail, hand delivery or email as follows:
