RFQ Released: June 28, 2017Due: July 21, 2017 (3:00 PM MDT)Contact: Isabelle Wolfe, Isabelle@SVED.org
The Sun Valley EcoDistrict Trust (“SVED”) has issued this Request for Qualifications (“RFQ”) to select a utility service partner or partners related to district heating, electricity, water and wastewater. SVED is a private 501c3 non-profit corporation structured to lead the sustainable redevelopment of Sun Valley, a West Denver neighborhood. SVED will serve as master developer for Sun Valley, coordinating key partnerships to deliver a variety of projects with a focus on social benefits.
As master developer, SVED will deliver horizontal infrastructure projects, and will also self-develop some buildings in Sun Valley. As the developer of horizontal infrastructure in Sun Valley, SVED’s role is to prepare parcels in Sun Valley with all the necessary services and infrastructure. Buildings in Sun Valley will be developed by a range of parties including SVED, the Denver Housing Authority (DHA), and third-party developers. Some buildings developed by SVED will be transferred to DHA upon completion.
The district scale services SVED is seeking through this RFQ are not necessarily replacements for traditional utility services and SVED is not necessarily seeking systems and solutions which would be exclusively responsible for providing utility servicing to all sites in Sun Valley. Rather, SVED is seeking district utility partners which will contribute to SVED’s goals for Sun Valley; these may be complementary to or in lieu of traditional utility services.
This RFQ provides background information and development program details in order for Respondents to accurately submit qualifications related to one or multiple utilities outlined in this solicitation. SVED acknowledges the short amount of time to respond to this RFQ and has attempted to provide ample project information to allow for Respondents to accurately relate experience and qualifications to the listed Scope of Services. The schedule is designed to allow for the selected partner(s) to help SVED coordinate the beginning phases of the redevelopment of Sun Valley. We greatly appreciate all respondent’s agility and effort to submit and look forward to reading all responses.
