Pending RFP for Design-Build Services

REVISED – RFP expected to be issued in April 2017

Pending RFP for Design-Build Services For Covered Aerated Static Pile Composting System, Stormwater Improvements and Sorting Facility Roof Extension Project at City’s Materials Diversion Facility

**Please note: This is not a request for bids/proposals. It is information only for a future request.**

The City of Napa Public Works Department intends to issue a Request for Proposal for Design-Build Services for Improvements at the Materials Diversion Facility in early April 2017. The project consists of the following elements:
1. Covered Compost System – concrete bunkers, roof structure, processing equipment
2. Stormwater Improvements
3. Roof Extension on Materials Sorting Building
4. Concrete Slab in Recycling Storage Area

The City is issuing this announcement of the pending RFP so that qualified and proactive design-build teams can begin planning to provide a proposal for the project. The project is design-build and requires an experienced team of engineers and construction professionals to take preliminary designs and layouts prepared by the City and prepare final construction plans and then complete construction.

The City has completed CEQA for the improvements and has secured bond financing for the project. The City plans to select a design-build contractor by June 2017 and expects all design and construction to be complete on the project by October 2018. The City expects to enter into a lump sum/maximum guaranteed price design-build agreement for the project.

If you would like to be notified via email when the RFP is issued and available on the City’s website, please send your email information to Sharon Quilon at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Strada Scannell 


Over the past several years, beginning as early as 2009, the City Council has been publicly discussing alternative methods of addressing the costly inefficiencies of serving the community from undersized and aging buildings. The City outgrew its facilities many years ago, which has led to City services being spread out into multiple facilities throughout the City. This is an inefficient way for our employees to provide services to the community, and it makes it difficult for members of the public who are required to visit multiple buildings to obtain City services. It is also costly, as the City is paying for the costs of leasing buildings not owned by the City, and the City will be facing maintenance costs on aging facilities with a backlog of deferred maintenance. Lastly, there is a need to upgrade the City’s Public Safety facilities to comply with state-required seismic standards.

Essentially, there are two options available to the City to address these concerns, either of which will require the City to incur significant costs. The City could undertake the cost of continuing to use and maintain existing facilities, but that is likely to cost tens of millions of dollars due to the need to create additional space for undersized facilities and meet minimum building safety requirements, as well as the ongoing costs of leasing buildings. Alternatively, the City could consolidate all City services into a new facility (based on one of the two proposals to be considered by Council on May 30), which would provide the City with an opportunity to free up valuable City property for private development, which in turn would generate revenue to offset project costs based on the sale of land as well as tax revenue flowing from subsequent economic development. These options will be presented to City Council for consideration on May 30 in order to identify a path for moving forward to determine how the City can best serve the community.

About the Project

The New Public Safety and City Administration Building involves the financing, design, construction, operation and maintenance of a Public Safety Building and City Hall and also provides opportunities for private development.
The City’s objectives related to the project include:
1) Develop an efficient and modern Police & Fire and City Administration Building that:

a. Provides modern and efficient Public Safety Facilities;
b. Co-locates City functions for operational, energy and cost efficiencies;
c. Provides spaces designed for collaboration and engagement with the public;
d. Provides customer-oriented service counters and space;
e. Provides a modern City Council Chamber and new public meeting and reception space;
f. Achieves workflow efficiencies and allow flexible design layouts;
g. Fully integrates technology in work areas; and
h. Avoids expensive maintenance and renewal work required to maintain current facilities.

2) Repurpose excess City property to free-up valuable downtown real estate for development in order to:

a. Contribute to the revitalization of downtown and create jobs;
b. Provide offsetting revenues to pay for some of the cost associated with the new City facilities; and
c. Enhance the gateway to downtown on First Street

Request For Proposals (RFP)

The primary purpose of this RFP is to request proposals from the three development teams qualified through the RFQ process. In the RFP, respondents are asked to provide their proposal for the construction of: new Public Facilities which will consolidate the City’s City Administration and Public Safety functions; and the private development of any excess City land not required on the existing Community Services Building site, the Superblock site (City Hall, Police & Fire Administration and Fire Station No. 1) or the Housing Authority Building site.
Through this Request for Proposals (RFP), the City of Napa seeks to select and contract with a Respondent from the teams shortlisted from the prior Request for Qualification (“RFQ”) process in order to accomplish the following outcomes:

1) Design, build, finance, operate and maintain a new, combined City Administration and Public Safety Building; and

2) The City will sell at fair market value, to the successful respondent, any excess land resulting from the development of the Public Facilities for private development, which could include the Community Services Building and all, or portions of, the super block site currently housing City Hall and Police and Fire Administration, Fire Station #1, and the Housing Authority Building site.
The RFP will enable the City to identify the most qualified Respondents and will be indicative of the level of the Respondents’ experience and commitment to the proposed project. Respondents must demonstrate their project concept, design and supporting financing plan necessary to successfully design, develop and deliver the proposed project.
RFP responses are due in February 2016. Following the submittals, the proposals will be reviewed, evaluated and the recommended team presented for City Council selection.
