Specifications include, but are not limited to:The Oregon Zoo is requesting proposals for Construction Management by General Contractor (CM/GC) services to plan and construct the polar bear habitat and related infrastructure at the Oregon Zoo.The successful CM/GC firm must provide qualified professional staff experienced in the planning, estimating, scheduling, and constructing of complex infrastructure, habitat, and visitor amenities. The firm will work closely with an interdisciplinary design consulting team with expertise in architecture, engineering, interpretive exhibits, animal habitat design, sustainable practices, public engagement, budget and cost estimating. The Oregon Zoo, one of the services of Metro, is a community treasure. It is the oldest zoo in the Pacific Northwest and continues to be the number one admission-based attraction in Oregon. The Oregon Zoo is well known for its success in protecting threatened and endangered species and providing generations of families with unique hands-on learning and recreational experiences. The Oregon Zoo consistently attracts more than 1.6 million visitors per year and has more than 42,000 member households. In November 2008, Portland-area residents approved a $125 million bond measure for the Oregon Zoo with 59 percent of the vote. The bond put the Oregon Zoo in a strong position to protect animal health and safety, increase access to conservation education and upgrade zoo facilities. A Comprehensive Capital Master Plan was developed to strategically plan the location, sequence and budget allocations for the bonds portfolio of capital improvement projects. The mission of the Oregon Zoo is to inspire the community to respect animals and act on behalf of the natural world. We do this by creating engaging experiences and advancing the highest level of animal welfare, environmental literacy, and conservation science. The Polar Bear Habitat and related infrastructure project is the sixth of eight major capital improvement initiatives approved by voters to support that mission. The projects base scope can be roughly broken down into four components: Polar bear habitat and support structures. Central Plaza, the primary guest amenity space integrated with the polar bear project which provides a place for zoo guests to gather, refresh and orient. Zoo campus infrastructure improvements--including storm, water, sanitary sewer, electrical, telecommunications and gas service. Polar bear interpretive experience--including graphics, exhibits and interactive learning components for visitors
