Summary : The Design Build project delivery method was selected to complete the 2020-2021 Charter School Capital Improvement Projects (CIP) in the 2018 Bond.

On March 1, 2019, the Douglas County School District (DCSD) Construction department and NV5 issued a Request for Qualifications & Proposal (RFQP) to all 28 approved Construction Manager/General Contractor (CMGC) and General Contractors (GC) qualified for projects valued at $3,000,000 or higher for capital renewal work at eight (8) charter schools: Academy Charter School, Challenge to Excellence, DCS Montessori School, North Star Academy, Parker Core Knowledge, Platte River Academy, SkyView Academy, and STEM Highlands Ranch. Two (2) design/build responses were received on March 22, 2019.

The Construction department in conjunction with NV5 and District staff reviewed submittals and MW Golden Constructors (MW Golden) was selected as the design/build firm based on recent similar experience of the project team and design/pre-construction services fee proposal.

MW Golden has been working with the charter schools, NV5, and the Construction department to verify and finalize project scopes and costs.

Charter School Capital Improvement Projects will be executed in two (2) phases. Phase I includes urgent Tier 1 projects to be completed between 2020 and 2021 at six (6) of the eight (8) charter schools. Phase II will include the remaining charter school Tier 1 projects in the 2018 Bond and be completed in 2022. Urgent Tier 1 projects were completed in 2019 at the two (2) charter schools not included in Phase I.

A Phase I initial Guaranteed Maximum Price (iGMP) has been submitted by MW Golden, which includes all construction costs and contractor’s contingency. The final GMP (fGMP) is anticipated to be at or below the iGMP. Should the fGMP exceed the iGMP, Board approval will be requested for the fGMP.
