OREM FAMILY FITNESS CENTER REMODEL

SECTION 1 : PURPOSE OF RFP

1.1 GENERAL INFORMATION

The purpose of this RFP is to solicit proposals from qualified architects or firms to contract with
the City of Orem to design and provide construction documents for a remodel of the Orem
Family Fitness Center. Once the Architect has been selected, the City will release another RFP
to select a Construction Manager / General Contractor (CM/GC) to help facilitate the completion
of the design, construction, and construction oversight of the project.

The City of Orem (Owner) is a mid-size community of 98,000 residents in northern Utah. The
City is a full service City providing a wide array of services. The City of Orem operates a full
service 108,000 sq. ft. Fitness Center. The facility includes a 50 meter competitive pool, hot
tub, steam room, leisure pool, cardio and aerobic area, indoor track, two gymnasiums, child
care, racquetball courts, gender specific locker rooms, bathrooms and sauna, and a firearms
range.

The City first built its Fitness Center in 1979, with updates in 2002 and 2006, which included a
new weight room, new aerobics studio, hardwood floors in the gym, expanded child care facility,
new HVAC system in the pool area, upgraded shooting range, a family change room, new
steam room off the pool deck, 6000 sq. ft. second-level cardio area, additional office spaces,
conference room, and heated front foyer entrance. The Fitness Center also expanded its indoor
pool offerings in 2014 and 2016 with a new leisure pool (with water slide, current channel, play
structure, Myrtha mound), a new pool liner, remodeled lap pool, and remodeled locker rooms.

In 2016 and 2017 the Fitness Center received facility improvements as part of the Siemens
Energy Savings Project. This included upgrades to the elevator lift system and aesthetics,
expansion of the existing Allerton system, BAS programming and automation for the entire
building, air handlers, circulation pumps, pool evaporation control, installation of aquatic variable
frequency drives (VFD)s to improve efficiency for the pool circulation pump, installation of
hypochlorite generator at the rec center to serve lap pool and spa areas, leisure pool pump
switch, VFDs for the boiler and chiller loop pumps, improved building envelope, added
mechanical insulation, sealed air dampers and ducts, installed de-stratification fans, replaced
interior and exterior building lighting and upgraded controls.

This RFP is part of a competitive procurement process which helps to serve the best interests of
the Owner and its citizens. It also provides each Respondent with a fair opportunity for its
services to be considered.

3.2 PROJECT SCOPE – Architect Services for the Orem Family Fitness Center
Remodel Project

3.2.1 GENERAL DESCRIPTION


8
City of Orem requests proposals for a major remodel of the Orem Family Fitness Center,
located at 580 West 165 South, Orem, UT. This RFP is part of a competitive procurement
process, which helps to serve the best interest of the Owner and its consumers. It also provides
a Respondent with a fair opportunity for their services to be considered.

The City of Orem anticipates using a Construction Manager/General Contractor (CM/GC) for
this project, and expects to select the CM/GC prior to the 25% design level of the project. The
City anticipates that the selected architectural firm will assist the City in the selection of the
CM/GC. The CM/GC will provide a Guaranteed Maximum Price at the 100% construction
drawing level.

It is the intent that the construction project will be phased to accommodate the aquatic area to
remain open during the construction time period and that other spaces will be out of service for
as short of time as possible.

The renovated facility should enhance the quality of life of the residents of Orem City by
providing positive activity spaces and programs for users while also creating a pleasing
aesthetic structure and landscape and a more open and inviting environment for patrons.
Desired improvements for the facility include a new entrance, administrative offices,
family changing rooms, suspended running track, potentially an incline track, new
fitness and exercise studios, racquetball courts (4-6 total), enhanced child care area,
rock wall, indoor playground, community meeting space and natural lighting.

The City of Orem expects that the facility will contain energy efficiency LEED-type features, and
will utilize sustainable building principles. It is not the city’s intent to seek LEED certification for
this project. The facility will reflect creative design, connectedness to the community, and cost
consciousness.

The City of Orem expects that the design will reflect current operational and maintenance
efficiencies and promote customer service and safety.

Review background information

1. In 2017, a comprehensive feasibility study to investigate the operational and


programmatic viability of the facility and to determine financial feasibility, and anticipate
future community recreation needs was conducted. Existing recreational assets were

vision for the City’s recreational facilities. Orem City Parks and Recreation Master Plan

these are available for the Respondents to review.

schematic design, construction documents, coordination with the CM/GC, and consultation as

the CM/GC to produce a preliminary Guaranteed Maximum Price to perform
construction. Construction Documents at 100% will be used by the CM/GC to present to
and negotiate with the City a final Guaranteed Maximum Price. Architect will provide a
review of the proposed Guaranteed Maximum Price on behalf of the City.

8. Coordination of all permitting and other similar requirements.

9. Continued coordination with the CM/GC throughout the bidding and construction process
for the project. This coordination will include regular updates to the City regarding project
