General Statement of Work: The Ellie Facade lighting system will both recreate original light fixtures and accentuate historical features of the Ellies three exposed exterior facades with modern LED fixtures. The system will consist of new globe fixtures to match those originally installed along the facade, the recreation of historic pin-dot lighting across the building, and new low-profile LED fixtures of various types concealed within, or mounted directly to, the exterior of the building and controlled in various zones by a programmable control system. Light demolition of interior finishes and subsequent patching / reassembly, installation of electrical systems, weatherproofing and/or fireproofing of penetrations, and drilling through and mechanically fastening components to the historic, primarily brick, facade will be necessary.

Special Instructions for Bid: The Ellie is a historic landmark (Landmark Preservation Commission {LPC} registered Landmark and listed on the National Register of Historic Places) necessitating that the work be completed carefully and professionally with a properly managed, trained, and skilled labor force with the proper tools, expertise, and equipment to avoid damaging the historic elements of the structure. There will also be a need to protect and avoid damaging the unique 14th St. landscaping, lighting, and streetscape. The possible pathways for conduit through interior spaces with varied occupancy types and finishes have limited access via chases, access panels, or raceways and will require careful planning and preparation to not only protect finishes and historic elements but to avoid negatively impacting operations.

Phasing of the work inside of the building will be determined by the schedule of events for the facility which will dictate what areas of the building are available for various types of work throughout the project. Both the facility and the Denver Performing Arts Complex (DPAC) will remain operational throughout the project with various events and performances throughout the week and weekends in the four venues, Sculpture Park, and daily use of the parking garage. Access to the entrance of the DPAC Galleria at Curtis and 14th St. must remain open and clear for foot traffic to allow pedestrian access to the venues of the DPAC. Emergency egress doors and entrances for patrons and employees must also remain clear of obstructions along 14th and Champa St. Access to work areas along the 14th street and Galleria facades shall be via lifts and/or ladders and not through erected scaffolding. Lay down / storage space is very limited at the DPAC and space for the Contractor to occupy at all times will likely be limited to approximately enough space for three to four gang boxes and smaller equipment, likely in the basement of the facility. Material deliveries could be made at the loading dock with proper planning and communication with the project team as much as one week to two days ahead of delivery to ensure that the dock is available for use.

There is no parking provided at the DPAC for the Contractor nor will the bagging of parking meters on the surrounding streets be possible for extended periods of times. On an as needed basis, parking meters may be bagged for deliveries or certain operations that must extend beyond the sidewalk with the proper permit but, these will be limited to the time necessary to perform the work / complete the delivery. Fees for permits related to street closures, sidewalk closures, or bagging of parking meters will not be charged to the Contractor however, the responsibility for applying for and the costs of adhering to the requirements of that permit will be with the Contractor.

The period of performance for work related to this project is expected to be from January through April 2018. Due to several large events in the Buell Theatre and the Ellie, working hours will typically be from 07:00 to 17:00 Monday through Friday.

Estimated Construction Cost: Between $504,000.00 and $616,000.00
