Section 1 - General Information:
1.1 Background
The Dormitory Authority of the State of New York (“DASNY” or “Owner”) is a public benefit corporation of the
State of New York empowered by Titles 4 and 4-B of the Public Authorities Law (the “Act”), to provide design and
project management services, and to issue its bonds, notes and other obligations, for a wide variety of public
purposes. Under the Act, DASNY provides a multitude of services in various forms in connection with the design,
construction and financing of capital facilities for State University of New York, including dormitories and
educational facilities; City University of New York Senior Colleges; Community Colleges; Boards of Cooperative
Educational Services; Cities and Counties with respect to Court Facilities and combined occupancy structures, as
defined by law; the Department of Education of the State of New York with respect to certain facilities under its
jurisdiction; other State and local governmental entities; independent colleges and universities; facilities for the aged;
certain not-for-profit hospitals and nursing homes, as well as a wide variety of other not-for-profit organizations
specifically described in the Act.
1.2 Purpose
DASNY issues this Request for Qualifications (RFQ) seeking a responsive Statement of Qualifications (“SOQ”)
from qualified Design-Build entities or teams (“Design-Build Team” or “Team” or “Respondent”) capable of
providing all Work (as defined herein) necessary to design, construct and commission a new, multi-purpose Life
Sciences Public Health Laboratory, to be located at the Governor Averell Harriman State Office Building Complex
in Albany, NY (the “Site”).
Following receipt of the submitted SOQs, an established evaluation committee will then identify a shortlist of
Design-Build Teams that will continue with the development process for the Life Sciences Public Health Laboratory
Project. The shortlisted Teams will be provided with a future Request for Proposal (“RFP”) that will include a Basis
of Design for the overall Project (“BOD”). An Executive Summary of the Basis of Design is Attachment 7 to this
RFQ.
The New York State Department of Health’s Wadsworth Center (“Wadsworth Center”) is a premier public health
institution, enabling the State to respond to and prepare for emerging public health threats affecting New York State
residents. The Wadsworth Center has been the public health laboratory of New York State since 1914. Wadsworth
Center’s scientific staff carry out a wide range of public health and research activities.
“Wadsworth Mission Statement: Wadsworth Center is a science-based community committed to protecting and
improving the health of New Yorkers through laboratory analysis, investigations and research, as well as
laboratory certification and educational programs”
The existing Wadsworth Center laboratories are in serious need of upgrades due to age and disrepair. These
laboratories are located across five facilities that employ approximately 900 personnel working in roughly 910,000
sf of usable space. Various assessments over the past several years have confirmed that the facilities are significantly
out-of-date and in need of upgrades. The State of New York proposes to consolidate the various facilities of the
current Wadsworth Center into a single, highly-efficient laboratory campus (the “Life Sciences Laboratory” or
“Laboratory”). The new Life Sciences Laboratory will better foster innovation and collaboration within the
Wadsworth Center and its facilities, as well as between the Wadsworth Center and outside partners, thereby
contributing to the broader life sciences initiative in the Capital Region.

The Wadsworth Center:
Is one of the largest, most comprehensive public health laboratories in the country performing
critical public health functions and complex analyses that cannot be performed by other hospitals or
commercial laboratories
Is essential for maintaining public health and safety in the State of New York and responsible for
critical statewide emergency response functions requiring 24/7/365 operations
Currently encompasses approximately 910,000 square feet across five separate facilities located in
Albany, including: Biggs Laboratory, Griffin Laboratory, David Axelrod Institute, Center for
Medical Science, and Western Avenue Offices
Core functions include, but are not limited to, the following:
o Newborn screening and genetic services
o Infectious disease testing and surveillance
o Environmental health testing (biological/chemical/nuclear)
o Oversight and licensing of clinical and environmental testing laboratories and blood/tissue
banks
o Research
o Educational programs
o Extramural grant programs
The Goals of the Life Sciences Public Health Laboratory Project include, but are not limited to, the following:
Strengthening and advancing public health and preparedness strategies throughout the State of New
York
Replacing failing and antiquated facilities that are costly to operate and are an impediment to
scientific progress
Minimizing the overall geographic footprint for the Wadsworth Center
Establishing a sustainable, modernized, and consolidated laboratory campus
Reducing costs and improving the efficiency and reliability of operations and maintenance
Pursuing economic and intellectual property development
Providing for future expansion and adjacent development to enable clustering of life science firms
Creating work spaces that support and encourage both structured and spontaneous opportunities for
innovation and development within the Wadsworth Center’s departments, across its core functions,
and with its commercial partners
Providing easier access to common facilities for Laboratory personnel and commercial partners, and
to foster circulation to maximize small and medium-sized group interaction
Minimizing the isolating effect of facilities having restricted access (such as BSL3 labs or other
biohazard areas) due to required security and public safety protocols
Providing for the development of spaces and facilities that allow for social activities not directly
related to the Laboratory’s core functions or commercial partnerships (e.g., sports fields, recreational
spaces)
