PBN Seeks Proposals for Assisting with the East Side Commercial Building Stabilization Fund

Preservation Buffalo Niagara is accepting written proposals from qualified firms to provide architectural and engineering services in connection with the East Side Commercial Building Stabilization Fund.

Services Required

As part of this work, we are in need of architectural services for the following tasks:

  • Assistance in preparing scope of work descriptions;
  • Assistance in project cost estimating (can be done by a sub-consultant if desired but must be
    included in the response);
  • Assistance in procuring and evaluating three quotes for each project;
  • Construction management and oversight during the contract period for each project.

Projects will be small scale in nature, with most projects not exceeding $150,000 in work, with
approximately ten – fifteen total projects. Projects will mainly consist of roof repairs or replacements,
siding and/or masonry repairs, and other types of structural work. Please note, full bid packages are not
required. In an effort to keep costs affordable, written scopes of work keyed to building plans and
photographs are the focus of this work with drawings prepared only when necessary to communicate
the exact nature of work. It is anticipated that this work will take place over a twelve month period
commencing in June 2022.
