RFP - RRCC Partition Wall Replacement

RFP – Joseph A. Floreano Rochester Riverside Convention Center (RRCC) Partition Wall Replacement

Project No. 18008

The City of Rochester, through its Architectural Services department, is soliciting proposals from firms for engineering/architectural services to include investigation, design, bid and construction oversight for the selection, purchase and installation of new movable partitions walls in the Highland Ballroom, Empire Hall, and Grand Lilac Ballroom at the James A. Floreano Rochester Riverside Convention Center. The room dividing operable walls are original to the building construction in 1985; they are single pivot point design panels that are in poor condition and difficult to operate. It is the City’s intent to replace them all in one bid package with one type/manufacturer of panel. All of the panels are non-motorized single panel type partition systems, and will remain so with the new panels.

The selected consultant shall inspect the various sets of existing partition and track designs. Investigate what is available today from operable partition manufacturers. Develop a basis of design specification for bidding around the desired partition manufacturer, type and options. Select finish materials and color options for each partition location. Review structural loads imposed by the new partitions, detail new track systems for panels both in position in the respective spaces and stacked in the existing storage closets. Design associated wall and ceiling/soffit finish restoration, acoustic closures and pass thru door locations. Additional work may include but is not restricted to protection and restoration of fire protection and fire alarm system elements; HVAC ductwork, grilles and diffusers; piping; and light fixtures and circuiting.
