Contract Description:
U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, New England District (NAE) intends to solicit a Design Build (DB) contract for the design and construction of a new access control point at Hanscom Air Force Base (AFB) in Bedford, Massachusetts. The existing access control point is located on the west side of the installation and operates as the installation’s primary entrance/access point for military personnel, commercial contractors and other base visitors. The existing entrance is out of compliance with current Anti-Terrorism (AT) requirements and experiences significant congestion due to high traffic volumes. As a result, Hanscom AFB requires the construction of a new access control facility, known as the Vandenberg Gate Complex.

This project will be designed as permanent construction in accordance with UFC 1-200-01, General Building Requirements, UFC 1-200-02, High Performance & Sustainable Building Requirements and UFC 4-010-01 Minimum Antiterrorism Standards for Buildings.

The Vandenberg Gate Complex shall include a new visitors’ center, gatehouse with canopy, commercial vehicle gatehouse, covered commercial vehicle inspection facility and covered POV inspection area. The proposed approach is to demolish and realign the entrance road to include striping, sidewalks, utilities, security bollards & vehicle barriers controls, landscaping, signage, lighting and infrastructure to support the closed circuit television system. Fence and fence gates, visitor parking, entry lanes, commercial vehicle queuing lanes and inspection area, rejection lanes and final denial barriers would be included. The proposed project also includes installation of a Fire Alarm System and infrastructure to support Intrusion Protection System, and Duress Alarm. Supporting facilities include electrical service, communications, potable water, sewer connection, storm drainage and site improvements. Access for individuals with disabilities must be provided in public areas. Comprehensive building finishes and related interior design services will be required.

The District intends to solicit the Design-Build contract, across all business categories (full and open competition) using the two-step, best-value procurement method. This acquisition will be conducted in accordance with FAR Part 15; FAR 36.3; DOD Source Selection Procedures; the Army Source Selection Supplement, and the UAI. The estimated contract value is between $10 and 20 million, with a projected award date of 26 June 2020. The NAICS code 236220
