Contracting Office Address



This is a SOURCES SOUGHT NOTICE for information only.� Replies by interested parties will be used by this agency for preliminary planning purposes.� No proposal or contract will be awarded from this notice.� No reimbursement will be made for any costs associated with providing information in response to this notice or any follow up information requests. The U. S. Army Corps of Engineers has been tasked to solicit and award a firm fixed price contract to design and construct the Flight Test Engineering Laboratory at Edwards AFB, CA PROJECT: �Flight Test Engineering Laboratory Complex, Edwards AFB, CA. Design and construct a two story laboratory, engineering and office complex (approximately 6,968 Square Meters) with reinforced concrete slab foundation, wall panels, standing seam metal roof, thermal energy storage system, and fire protection. Include, earthwork, site drainage, parking, site lighting, sidewalks, curbs, gutters, and utilities. This project will demolish Building 1400 (6,265 Square Meter). Facilities will be designed as permanent construction in accordance with the Department of Defense Unified Facilities Criteria 1-200-01. Sustainable principles, to include life- cycle cost-effective practices, will be integrated into the design, development, and construction of the project in accordance with Unified Facility Criteria 1-200-02. This includes preparation of a life-cycle cost analysis for energy consuming systems, renewable energy generating systems, whenever life-cycle cost effective is selected as the reason any requirement of Unified Facility Criteria 1-200-02 is partially compliant or not applicable. This project will comply with Department of Defense antiterrorism/force protection requirements per Unified Facility Criteria 4-010-01 BACKGROUND: To maintain United States Air Force superiority, Test Engineering Group must develop labs that will allow for Special Access Program/Sensitive Compartmented Information level data analysis and flight test operations to support near-peer engagements and sensor advancement for the war on terrorism. Test Engineering Group labs are used both to support test missions and to develop methodologies and equipment needed to test cutting edge weapons systems. A modern, flexible facility is essential to allow Test Engineering Group to rapidly upgrade/modify labs to keep up with the increasing pace of changing technology and agile software updates.� Building 1400 was one of the first built as part of the original main base construction in 1954 and houses the 412th Test Engineering Group. The facility is over 60 years old, does not comply with current fire and life safety codes (Fire Safety Deficiency Code 1 assigned), is in deteriorated condition, is energy inefficient, and does not meet current earthquake safety standards. Original construction material such as asbestos-filled ceilings and glass-paned walls restrict building modifications and pose both day-to-day and long- term occupational safety hazards to employees. In addition to the negative intangibles of working in a dilapidated and unsafe building (a significant negative impact on workforce morale and effectiveness and significantly impacts attracting talented engineers during the interviewing process which occurs in the engineering home office), Test Engineering Group cannot effectively adapt or upgrade existing labs to develop new test capabilities required to test 5th and 6th generation platforms. Attempts to do even moderate updates to labs through renovations are prohibited by environmental abatement requirements, outdated electrical, communication and mechanical systems, architectural barriers, and life safety and fire safety deficiencies. Additionally, maintenance and repair of these facilities requires extensive effort and resources due to 1954 construction materials. The type of set-aside decision to be issued will depend upon the responses to this sources sought notice.
