Architect Services for the Orem Family Fitness Center Remodel Project
City of Orem requests proposals for a major remodel of the Orem Family Fitness Center, located at 580 West 165 South, Orem, UT. This RFP is part of a competitive procurement process, which helps to serve the best interest of the Owner and its consumers. It also provides a Respondent with a fair opportunity for their services to be considered.
The City of Orem anticipates using a Construction Manager/General Contractor (CM/GC) for this project, and expects to select the CM/GC prior to the 25% design level of the project. The City anticipates that the selected architectural firm will assist the City in the selection of the CM/GC. The CM/GC will provide a Guaranteed Maximum Price at the 100% construction drawing level.
It is the intent that the construction project will be phased to accommodate the aquatic area to remain open during the construction time period and that other spaces will be out of service for as short of time as possible.
The renovated facility should enhance the quality of life of the residents of Orem City by providing positive activity spaces and programs for users while also creating a pleasing aesthetic structure and landscape and a more open and inviting environment for patrons. Desired improvements for the facility include a new entrance, administrative offices, family changing rooms, suspended running track, potentially an incline track, new fitness and exercise studios, racquetball courts (4-6 total), enhanced child care area, rock wall, indoor playground, community meeting space and natural lighting.
The City of Orem expects that the facility will contain energy efficiency LEED-type features, and will utilize sustainable building principles. It is not the city’s intent to seek LEED certification for this project. The facility will reflect creative design, connectedness to the community, and cost consciousness.
The City of Orem expects that the design will reflect current operational and maintenance efficiencies and promote customer service and safety.
