The Gary/Chicago International Airport (GCIA) says it has issued a Request for Proposals (RFP) for a professional construction management (CM) firm to provide bidding and inspection services and management of the construction of a new General Aviation Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) facility.
“The construction of a new, permanent general aviation customs facility is the next step in growing GCIA and realizing our full potential,” GCIA chairman Stephen Mays said in a statement. “I am thrilled we will soon be able to offer this service to the general aviation community and increase the universe of potential airport users who will be able to fly into the airport from any destination in the world without having to stop somewhere else to first clear customs.”
Earlier this year, the GCIA Authority retained NGC Corp (NGC) as the project’s architect of record. NGC has prepared plans and specifications that have been reviewed and approved by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. The selected CM consultant will coordinate with the GCIA Authority and NGC on all aspects of the construction project, including the identification, management and coordination of subcontractors and working with affected agencies to ensure all security requirements are met.
All inquiries and questions related to the RFP must be submitted to the airport in writing no later than Aug. 23 via fax or e-mail to: Duane Hayden, Gary/Chicago International Airport, (fax) (219) 949-0573 or Duane@gciairport.com. Final RFP responses are due by 1:00 PM CST on Sept. 1.
The RFP and copies of the project’s plans and specifications are available to interested firms at the administrative offices of the Gary/Chicago International Airport at 6001 Airport Rd., Gary, IN (Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.) for a $100 non-refundable deposit.
