    for the design construction of two restrooms located at Greens Park in the City of Palestine. The
    City of Palestine invites qualified companies to submit proposals to provide complete architectural
    and engineering design and construction cost estimates for the construction of new restrooms at
    Greens Park.
    Sealed proposals are due in the City Secretary’s Office on or before Monday, December 18, 2023,
    at 1:00 p.m. Sealed proposals will be opened on Monday, December 18, 2023, at 1:30 p.m., in the
    City Hall Conference Room. To be considered, the sealed proposal must address each of the
    requests for information in the Summary of Qualifications section.
    II. SERVICES REQUIRED
    This is a request for proposal for the selection of a design-build firm/team for the design
    construction of two restrooms located at Greens Park.
    Restroom specifications must be provided for floor/foundation, wall systems, interior
    finishes, doors, roof, exterior finishes, ventilation, accessories and signage, plumbing,
    electrical, and external utility connections.
    The design can be a prefabricated building or a cinder block constructed building to match
    the restrooms in existing city-owned parks.
    The roof must be composed of asphalt shingles or metal roofing, with two ventilation ports
    on the roof line.
    New fixtures must meet ADA requirements and other state codes as required. The
    contractor must be able to install the pad site with proper plumbing, water, and electrical
    components.
    The contractor will be responsible for connecting the building's utilities.
    The contractor must be registered with the City of Palestine and obtain all necessary
    permits for this project.
    The contractor must provide a written timeline of construction and design of the restrooms.
    III. MARKET CONDITIONS
    The city is aware of the extreme market fluctuations occurring for these services, so we strive to
    arrive at a bid format that satisfies state bid law and protects vendors/contractors against future
    price increases. We will ask your company to establish a baseline price for the services and
    products listed to protect the vendor/contractors and the city. Prices can be negotiated after bids
    are opened based on increases and/or decreases in the same amount as the market changes.
    However, the winning vendor/contractor(s) will be asked to provide documentation proving a
    change in price has occurred. If prices decrease over the term of this agreement, the winning
    vendor/contractor(s) will be expected to pass along these decreases in pricing. The city will assume
    that submitting a bid under this format allows your company to agree to this market protection. If
    you have a different method of price protection, please include your information in your response.
    IV. GENERAL INFORMATION
    The City of Palestine is a home rule city located in Anderson County with a population of
    approximately 18,544 per the 2020 U.S. Census estimate. The city operates under a Council-
    Manager form of government with a mayor, six (6) council members, and a city manager. The
