Scope of Project:
A. Project Description
The Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR) through the Division of Forestry is responsible for the Forestry
Maintenance Center at Scioto Trail State Park. The maintenance center provides equipment and material storage and
maintenance garage for the Division of Forestry. An existing 190’x24’ building has served in this manner for several
decades and is now in need or replacement.
The new, one-story structure is planned as 209’x70’ building that that includes: 14 pull through bays with garage doors on
each side with electric supplied in each bay at centralized locations and concrete floors; 4 heated bays to be constructed
16' wide with a 14' wide/high garage doors; 10 unheated bays to be constructed 14' wide with 12' wide/high garage doors.
An adjacent (approximately 100’) wood fired boiler (to be provided by ODNR) will provide the heating source for the new
building. A pre-engineered building is the design intent, and the Criteria Documents will be developed as a part of this
project by the Criteria Architect/Engineer lead by Garmann Miller & Associates, Inc.
All aspects of the project and related issues will be implemented and operated consistent with the Contracting Authority
and/or Owner’s policies and procedures.
B. Scope of Services
The selected Design-Builder (“DB”), as a portion of its required Scope of Services and prior to submitting its proposal, will
discuss and clarify with the Owner and the Contracting Authority, the breakdown of the Agreement detailed cost
components, to address the Owner’s project requirements and refine the project schedule.
As required by the Agreement, and as properly authorized, provide the following categories of services: develop and
maintain estimates of probable construction cost, value engineering, project schedules, and construction schedules; lead
and manage the Schematic Design, Design Development, Subcontractor Prequalification and Bidding process,
Construction Documents, Construction and Closeout stages.
Refer to the OFC Manual for additional information about the type and extent of services required for each. A copy of the
standard Agreement can be obtained at the OFCC website at http://ofcc.ohio.gov.
The preconstruction and construction services are generally described below. Subcontracts including but not limited to
Plumbing, HVAC, and Electrical trades will be awarded by the DB to prequalified vendors using a competitive process.
The parties will engage in an "open book" pricing method in which all subcontracted work shall be based upon competitive
pricing that will be reviewed by the Contracting Authority and the Owner, the Criteria A/E and the DB. The Contracting
Authority and/or Owner shall have access to all books, records, documents and other data in the DB's possession related
to itself, its subcontractors and material suppliers pertaining to bidding, pricing or performance of the Agreement.
