Who Will Build the New Edison?

Proposals invited for construction manager/general contractor to replace 4J’s oldest school 

Voters in Eugene School District 4J resoundingly passed the school bond measure in November 2018 to construct new school buildings for three schools with aging facilities and fund other capital improvements for all 4J schools.

Edison Elementary School, the district’s oldest school building, is the first school that will be replaced. Mahlum Architects and Robertson Sherwood Architects have been selected to design the new Edison. Now, the district is seeking proposals from contractors to build what the architects design.

We’re looking to select a construction manager/general contractor (CM/GC) at the beginning of the design process so that the contractor can work with the architects and the district to analyze building systems, provide cost estimates, develop construction schedules, help to plan for the anticipated months of construction, and help ensure that the school replacement project will be completed on time and within budget.

CM/GC proposals from construction firms will include a competitive bid for their fee, a guaranteed maximum price to complete the project, and other information requested by the district, including a recommendation of how to fulfill the school board’s statement of values regarding community benefits of construction projects.

The district, the architect team, and the selected construction firm will all be active members of the project team throughout the design and construction of the new Edison Elementary School. Subcontractors will be selected through a publicly advertised, competitive solicitation process.

CM/GC proposals are due September 20.
