Bids Due To Chicago Park District (CPD)

Detail of Services
The Chicago Park District regularly has construction work that must be done on an urgent or immediate basis. Accordingly, the CPD requires a pool of pre-qualified general contractors that can respond quickly to Invitation for Bids (“IFBs”) and commence work on any awarded project within a short time frame. The construction projects that will be sent to this pool will vary in size and scope and may involve multiple trades. Generally, they will involve both building or park construction and renovation, and some projects may involve both.

The selected general contractors must be responsible for all work on each project, from start to final close-out. The CPD is not seeking firms to provide construction management services only, or to serve as pass-throughs or brokers. You cannot pre-qualify your firm in this pool if you intend to subcontract the entirety of the work to another firm. Each firm must itself have the ability to perform at least 15 percent of the contracted work.
