Sources Sought DEPT OF DEFENSE is seeking information for a Disaster Resiliency Program (DRP)- Phase 1 at Creech Air Force Base, Nevada. The project involves the design and construction of a Squadron Operations Facility, Aircraft Operations Facility (AOF), Apron, and Jet Blast Deflector. The facilities will be used to support the DRP mission sets and will include features such as reinforced concrete foundations, structural steel frames, masonry exterior walls, standing seam metal roof systems, and anti-skid hangar floor coatings. The project also includes the installation of intrusion detection systems, cybersecurity measures, airfield pavements, primary infrastructure buildout, and an integrated physical security system. The estimated construction price range for this project is between $100,000,000 and $250,000,000, with a total contract performance period of 900 calendar days. Interested parties should submit a capability statement demonstrating their ability to perform the work. Responses are due by November 26, 2023.


This is a SOURCES SOUGHT NOTICE for information only. Replies by interested parties will be used by this agency for preliminary planning purposes. No proposal or contract will be awarded from this notice. No reimbursement will be made for any costs associated with providing information in response to this notice or any follow up information requests. The U. S. Army Corps of Engineers has been tasked to solicit and award a firm fixed price contract to design and construct a Squadron Operations Facility, Aircraft Operations Facility (AOF), Apron, and Jet Blast Deflector at Nellis AFB, NV. PROJECT SCOPE: Single Phase Design and construct a 50,364sf Squadron Operations Facility, a 41,053sf Aircraft Operations Facility, and 280,000sf of airfield pavements utilizing conventional design and construction methods to accommodate the Disaster Resiliency Program (DRP) mission sets. The single-story Squadron Operations Facility will be constructed with a reinforced concrete foundation, structural steel frame, masonry exterior walls, and standing seam metal roof system. The AOF is comprised of four flow-thru style aircraft hangar bays with horizontal sliding pocket doors and will be constructed with reinforced concrete foundation/floor slab, structural steel frame, metal panel with brick veneer exterior, and standing seam metal roof system. The AOF will include anti-skid hangar floor coating, installation of a fire protection system, aircraft static grounding points, and adequate exhaust and ventilation systems. The facilities include the installation of intrusion detection systems and cybersecurity measures for facility-related systems. Airfield pavements in support of the AOF will be designed “light- load” type and will include concrete hangar access aprons, apron access taxiways, and paved shoulders (asphalt). Project also includes the installation of a jet blast deflector with an asphalt foundation. Supporting facilities include the DRP complex primary infrastructure buildout to include the complex-wide site preparations, primary utility mains, water storage tower, stormwater system, concrete pads with shore power capability for squadron operational equipment placement, and antenna support structures for ground data terminal equipment, and an electrical and communications primary and redundant system network. The project includes all individual building utility service connections, site preparation, apron and taxiway edge lighting, communications, privatized utility connection fees, fire detection and suppression systems, and pavements. The DRP complex will include an integrated physical security system consisting of security fences, gates, and electronic security systems to include Intrusion Detection Systems (IDS), Access Control Systems (ACS), Closed Circuit Television (CCTV), and security lighting. The project is authorized emergency generators with fuel tanks with automatic transfer switches. Facilities will be designed as permanent construction in accordance with the DoD Unified Facilities Criteria (UFC) 1-200-01, General Building Requirements, UFC 1-200-02, High Performance and Sustainable Building Requirements, UFC 4-211-01, Aircraft Maintenance Hangars, UFC 3-260-02, Pavement Design for Airfields, and other UFC as appropriate. The facility will be compatible with applicable DoD, Air Force, and base design standards. This project will comply with DoD antiterrorism / force protection requirements per UFC. Special Construction Requirements: Raised flooring as required, Secure Compartmentalized Information Facility (SCIF) and Special Access Program (SAP) specifications and construction in accordance with ICD/ICS 705 is necessary. MINIMUM CAPABILITIES REQUIRED INCLUDE THE FOLLOWING: Utilities; communications support; site improvements; airfield pavements; electrical systems; heating, ventilation, and air conditioning systems (HVAC); fire detection and protection features; security enhancements; backup power generation; and other supporting work necessary to make a complete and useable facility.
