McIntire Botanical Garden

Date: 10/24/2017 - 1/15/2018

Type: RFPs / RFQs

LA CES approved?: No

Location(s): Virginia

Description: The McIntire Botanical Garden (MBG) in Charlottesville Virginia, invites you to submit a proposal for the first phase of a Master Plan that will guide the garden’s development. The RFP is divided into three Phases: Schematic Design, Design Development, and Construction Documents. Each phase is designed to stand alone, with its own timeline and budget, and at this time we are moving forward with the Schematic Design phase only, although the RFP does require considering the project holistically at times. Future phases will move forward after completion of the proceeding design phase and once the funding goals are met for the subsequent phases.

Prospective firms are required to attend a pre-proposal meeting that will include a walk-through of the garden site (date, time, and place will be announced on our website). If you plan to attend the meeting, you must email an RSVP by the date provided on the website. Questions about the RFP must be received at least 24 hours before the meeting and must be submitted by email. All questions, answers, and modifications to the RFP will be discussed at the meeting and posted on the website for reference.

Use the link below to access the RFP. The password to access the RFP will be provided after you fill out the submission form on this web page. Instructions regarding proposal submission are found on pages 6-7 of the RFP. We anticipate the selection of a firm by March 2018. All firms will be notified at the end of the selection process.
