Statement of Qualifications Stage 1:
Design Approach (25%)
The written or diagrammatic description of the approach and design philosophy should highlight the Team's attitude toward design and demonstrate an understanding of the Pier redevelopment project issues. The response to this criterion should include recognition of the unique design constraints presented by this project and how the proposed Team is exceptionally suited to solve these issues. The degree to which the Team's initial ideas allow for flexibility, creativity and fiscal reliability will be evaluated.
Relevant Project Examples (25%)
Overall Team members should have experience working with multi-disciplinary teams and on projects similar in size and complexity to the Pier redevelopment project. While the relevance of the project examples similar in scope to the Pier project would be an asset in terms of experience, of equal importance is the team's overall record of accomplishment. The project examples should demonstrate specialized design expertise, technical competence and familiarity with sustainable principles. Specific experience with complex marine or environmental projects and/or urban waterfront redevelopment projects will be an asset.
Team Background and Experience (50%)
The Standard Form 254 or 330 will be the primary source for detailed information on key Team members and project personnel. The Team's lead designer shall have the qualification and experience required in the RFQ. The response to this criterion should identify the key roles of each Team member, how they will be integrated into the design, the method for assurance of design quality and cost control and how the Team will coordinate the major design and production work. The Team shall demonstrate its expertise, strengths and ability based on proven performance. Both the design Team's capabilities and the abilities and accomplishments of the individual Team members will be assessed.
