Request for Qualifications - Asbestos
On behalf of SER Jobs for Progress, we are requesting your firm to submit its qualifications to provide engineered asbestos abatement planning, specifications, design documents, and monitoring services for a 22,528 SF two story office building located at 1710 Telephone Rd. Houston, TX.
SCOPE OF THE PROJECT:
SER has received two federal Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) awards and due to funding restrictions the selected asbestos abatement consultant will comply with all CDBG requirements, which include but are not limited to Section 3, and MWSBE requirements.
The building renovation will include roof deck remediation, foundation remediation, building envelope modifications, and the demolition of interior components including MEP systems, walls, ceilings, and finishes.
Current construction documents are downloadable via a link at the end of this document listed as Exhibit A for your review and information. The project is in need of asbestos abatement services prior to renovation of the current facility. Abatement would commence after the required CDBG contractor acquisition process has been completed.
The “Professional Services Agreement” will be the basis of agreement for abatement services, and will be provided to interested bidders for review upon request.
