Request for Qualifications Instructions
Introduction
The City of Raleigh is soliciting Requests for Qualifications (RFQ) from Construction Manager at Risk
(CMAR) firms with expertise in the delivery of inspiring plaza and public park (or similar) facilities.
Qualified firms are invited to submit and demonstrate their qualifications for providing CMAR services
for the Dorothea Dix Campus Phase 1, the Gateway Plaza and Play (Gateway).
This solicitation encompasses Phase 1 – the Gateway portion as identified in the Dorothea Dix Park
Master Plan. The initial phase of the Master Plan development plans is to deliver the first active park
edge entry, which includes the only existing at-grade connection between Dix Park and the adjacent
residential neighborhood. Bus stops will be located nearby to accommodate drop-offs from across the
city. The Gateway will be a destination and an invitation to enter and explore other parts of the park. As
one of first projects of the Dorothea Dix Park Master Plan, the opportunity to transform this area into a
welcoming and inclusive space is of upmost importance.
Included in the proposed Gateway project area is a new entrance to the park, extension of Grissom and/or
Daladams Streets, a portion of multi-use greenway within the park boundary, temporary parking area, and
transit stops, new public gathering spaces, including civic plaza(s), cookout zones and play area(s), a
water feature/fountain, pedestrian paths, planted areas including lawns, gardens and plant beds, hardscape
elements, site furnishings, public art element(s), new architectural pavilion structure(s) with bathrooms to
support park programming and renovations to one of two historic houses located within the project area.

natural resource management practices that protect and add to the vibrancy and quality of life in Raleigh.
Master Plan Summary
Redevelopment of the Dorothea Dix Park presents a generational opportunity to rethink a key property
and critical public asset in the heart of the Raleigh. In 2017, the City and the Dorothea Dix Park
Conservancy began work with a consultant team to develop a master plan for the park. The Dorothea Dix
Park Master Plan is the culmination of an extensive two-year public planning process that involved input
from over 65,000 citizens. It is a bold and unique vision to transform the site into an incredible gathering
space for the community, region and state. The Dorothea Dix Park Master Plan was unanimously adopted
by Raleigh City Council in February 2019 and subsequent projects in future phases will continue to work
to implement this vision developed from the Master Plan.
The site is exceptionally located immediately south of downtown and the design and construction for this
first phase area encompasses 12.5 acres of the overall park. Today, the site for the Gateway phase
accommodates parking areas, open space, and two historic structures. Other historic buildings adjacent to
the site but outside of the construction area are leased by the NC Department of Health and Human
Services which continues to house over 2,000 state employees working on the campus.
The project’s goals include the creation of a new entry into the park that is clear, inviting and inspiring. It
is envisioned that new public gathering spaces, play areas, gardens and site amenities along with
renovations to historic structures and cultural landscapes will create a new and dynamic foundation for
future multi-phased renovations anticipated within the Dix Park site. As one of the first projects to be
implemented from the Dix Park Master Plan, the opportunity to transform this area into a welcoming and
inclusive space for all required an efficient, experienced multi-disciplinary design team well versed in
creating high profile public spaces. The design team selected for this first phase project will be led by the
firm Michael Van Valkenburgh and Associates (MVVA.)
The construction budget for the project has not been allocated at this time. However, the City anticipates
the construction cost of the project will not exceed $34M.
Scope of Services
For the purposes of this solicitation, CMAR services include both Pre-Construction and Construction
Services as follows:
Pre-Construction Services may include, but are not necessarily limited to the following:
Consultation during project development,
Value analysis,
Project Schedule development,
