WILMINGTON, MA — The Wilmington Senior Center Building Committee will meet on Tuesday, October 27, 2020 at 6pm to recommend a firm to serve as the building project’s Owners Project Manager (OPM). (Want to watch the meeting live on Zoom? Zoom link can be found HERE.)
The Committee received proposals from 14 firms after the town issued a Request for Qualifications (RFQ) in August. The Committee then narrowed the list to four finalists, which they publicly interviewed via Zoom on October 15, 2020 and October 19, 2020.
The final four firms are:
- P3 Project Planning Professionals
- Colliers International
- Hill International
The OPM will serve as the Town’s representative interacting with architects, engineers, and other contractors during the design, construction or renovation of public buildings valued in excess of $1.5 million. Once hired, the OPM will first work with the Town to procure the services of an architect to work with the Town to complete a feasibility study and schematic design for the facility.
Town Manager Jeff Hull, who was present for all four interviews, will accept the recommendation of the Committee and meet with the top rated firm to negotiate a ‘fixed fee’ for their services.
The Senior Center Building Committee consists of the Town’s Permanent Building Committee — George Hooper, Diane Allan, Paul Melaragni, Jack Holloway, and Mike Tkachuck — plus Elderly Services Director Terri Marciello, Finance Committee representative Theresa Manganelli, and Selectmen representative Greg Bendel. Hooper and Allan are serving as Chair and Vice Chair, respectively.
