Project Overview
A. Project Description
The Ohio Veterans Home (OVH), 3416 Columbus Avenue, Sandusky, OH 44870, is operated by the Department of
Veterans Services (DVS.) Originally opened in 1888 to care for veterans of the Civil War, this 427-bed nursing home
facility offers two levels of care: standard care for those veterans in need of any intermediate level of care, and special
care for veterans with Alzheimer's disease and other types of dementia. The facility additionally includes 209 domiciliary
beds for residents that are capable of independent living.
The Department of Veterans Services is seeking Construction Manager at Risk services for new construction of a new
facility located at The Ohio Veterans Home, 3416 Columbus Ave., Sandusky, Ohio 44870.
Professional design services are being acquired by the Contracting Authority under a separate contract.
The Program of Requirements (“POR”) will be developed as a part of this project by the Architect/Engineer (“A/E”).
All aspects of the project and related issues will be implemented and operated consistent with the Contracting Authority
and/or Owner’s policies and procedures.
This project may contain federal funds and all associated requirements.
B. Scope of Services
This project will consist of construction of a new facility on an operating campus with the following criteria:
• Following the Veterans Administration Small House Model Design Guidelines.
• Must adhere to the Build America, Buy America Act (BABA) which requires that all iron and steel, construction materials,
and manufactured products used in federally funded infrastructure projects are produced in the United States.
• LEED and or WELL Certification may be required.
• Typical 128 Bed Facility includes 4 Neighborhoods and a Community Center.
• Gardens for residents, staff and visitors including Healing or therapy gardens, Gardens designed specifically for Memory
Care residents and

Center so that visitors can have direct access. Parking for any of the community’s vans or other passenger vehicles used
to transport residents will be provided in a driveway or garage, away from the main entry of the Houses.
• Parking should include:

its proposal, will discuss and clarify with the Contracting Authority and/or Owner, the breakdown of the Agreement
detailed cost components, to address the Owner’s project requirements and refine the project schedule. Participate in the
Encouraging Diversity, Growth & Equity (EDGE) Program as required by statute and the Agreement.
As required by the Agreement, and as properly authorized, provide the following categories of services: provide
constructability review comments on documents produced by the A/E during the Schematic Design, Design Development,

project schedules, and construction schedules; lead and manage the Subcontractor Prequalification and Bidding process,
Construction and Closeout Stage.

for each. A copy of the standard Agreement can be obtained at the OFCC website at
The preconstruction and construction services are generally described below. Subcontracts including but not limited to
Plumbing, Fire Protection, HVAC, Electrical and AV/Technology will be awarded by the CM to prequalified vendors using
a competitive process. The parties will engage in an “open book” pricing method in which all subcontracted work shall be
based upon competitive pricing that will be reviewed by the Contracting Authority and/or Owner, the A/E and the CM. The
Contracting Authority and/or Owner shall have access to all books, records, documents and other data in the CM's
possession related to itself, its subcontractors and material suppliers pertaining to bidding, pricing or performance of the
Preconstruction Services: The CM will work cooperatively with the Contracting Authority and/or Owner, A/E, and Project
Team, and will provide, among other services, schedule development, estimate development, Guaranteed Maximum

engineering, and preconstruction planning throughout the preconstruction stages. When the drawings and specifications
are at the stage of completion specified in the Agreement, such partially completed documents (the “Basis Documents”)
shall be provided to the CM, together with the A/E's detailed listing of any incomplete design elements and the A/E’s
statement of intended scope with respect to such incomplete elements (the “Design Intent Statement”). Contingent upon
the Contracting Authority’s approval of the GMP, the parties will enter into an amendment to the Agreement establishing
the Contract Sum (“GMP Amendment”). If the proposed Contract Sum exceeds the Project Budget established for
construction, then the Contracting Authority may terminate the agreement with the CM and seek proposals from other
firms for completion of the Project.
Construction Services: The CM shall construct the Project pursuant to the construction documents and in accordance with
the schedule requirements. The CM shall hold all subcontracts and shall be fully responsible for the means and methods
of construction, project safety, project completion within the schedule agreed upon in the preconstruction phase,

and prevailing wage requirements, and submitting monthly reports of these activities to the Contracting Authority. All

reserves the right to approve the CM’s selection of subcontractors and any supplemental terms to the form subcontract.
