1.1 GENERAL DESCRIPTION
Boston Preparatory Charter Public School, the Awarding Authority, is issuing this Request for Bids (“RFB”) to invite Trade Contractors to submit bids for trade contract work in connection with the Boston Preparatory Charter Public School project located at 885 River Street, Boston, MA.
The Boston Preparatory Charter Public School project is located at 885 River Street, Boston, MA. The project will include the construction of a 35,000 SF addition to an existing middle and high school in Hyde Park, MA. The project will house 800 students at completion in grades 6-12.
The expansion will be a three-story structure with classrooms, science labs, academic support spaces and a cafeteria. Minor modifications will be made to the existing site plan to slightly increase parking, while maintaining the existing vehicular and site circulation. The adjacent school building will be fully occupied and operational throughout the academic year 2017/2018 and lay-down space on site will be extremely limited during that time.
Estimated construction cost of this project: $11,900,000.00
(Eleven million nine hundred thousand dollars)
There will not be a Pre-Bid Conference.
Bid Forms and Contract Documents will be available for pick-up Tuesday August 15th, 2017 after 10:00am at:
