Project Overview The Fell Pavilion (FP) of Toronto Western Hospital (TWH) currently possesses two (2) OR elevators (numbered: 9 and 10) which serve the MDRD in the basement and the OR on level 1. Both elevators are hydraulic elevators and were manufactured by Dover. The machine rooms are located within the Fell Parking Garage. There have been issues reported with the OR elevators primarily related to aged door equipment. Regular maintenance of the elevators have been challenging due to the critical areas which they serve and the special access requirements. The elevators are original to the building’s construction in 1984 making them well past the expected useful lifetime of 25 years and due for renewal. This project is to complete a full modernization of the two (2) OR Elevators. 2. Project Goals 1. Complete modernization of the two OR Elevators (#9 and #10) within TWH Fell Pavilion. 2. Determine the best design solutions to modernize the elevators. 3. Minimize downtime through a well thought out implementation plan. The design needs to include phasing if it is required. 3. Personnel 1. The proponent will act as Prime Consultant for the project and will be responsible for providing a comprehensive design team by hiring any third-party sub-consultants which are required to complete the scope of services outlined in this RFQ. 2. The scope of design services includes elevator consulting, mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, structural engineering (if required), architectural design (if required), and cost consulting services. 3. The proponent will ensure a qualified individual is assigned as project lead, and that this person attends all meetings, is involved in all communications, coordinates/compiles all deliverables, and is involved in all aspects of the project. This individual is required to have prior experience in elevator modernization design in a healthcare environment. 4. The proponent will provide a qualified individual (for each discipline) to carry out all investigations on-site. 4. Phase 1: Conceptual Design 1. The proponent will spend an appropriate amount of time surveying the site in order to familiarize themselves with it and to understand the existing systems and services and how they are utilized. This will include taking measurements, photographs and receiving input from various client stakeholders (facilities and maintenance staff, energy managers, etc.) regarding the systems. 2. Document stakeholders’ concerns, special requirements, and schedule of their work that will have to be incorporated into the design. 3. Site investigations and measurements must occur on site. The design brief and its requirements listed below will not be accepted if they are strictly from drawing review. 4. Review the existing condition of all components of the OR Elevators, including but not limited to the associated components of: a. Elevator machine rooms b. Elevator cabs c. Elevator shafts d. Hall doors e. Elevator pits 5. Document the existing conditions in the Design Brief and identify which components are to be included in the scope of the modernization and which components of the elevators are in good working condition such that they can be excluded from the scope of the modernization. Components to be included in scope should evaluated based on performance rather than age. 6. Determine the best design solution to modernize the OR Elevators. Consider current industry best practices, standards, code compliance (i.e. OBC, AODA, TSSA, CSA, etc.), and the building’s needs. A minimum design requirement for any proposed solution is to include non-proprietary equipment. Identify potential for energy savings/efficiency in design solution (costs should be separated and broken down to identify cost premiums for these options). UHN will decide whether to include in scope once identified. An energy impact analysis for any proposed energy efficiencies is to be included with the design documents. 7. Review existing spaces and base building infrastructure to ensure that any proposed design solution would be suitable for the current building conditions (e.g. HVAC, Electrical feeders, space, fire alarm, plumbing, etc.), given the age of the base building systems. If any opportunities for efficiency and/or code upgrades to base building infrastructure to suit new equipment are identified (e.g. pit steel replacement), note the proposed upgrades in the Design Brief. 8. Comment on auxiliary functions of the elevators (e.g. cameras, card access, etc.) that will be incorporated into the design. 9. Produce and present a Design Brief document (at 10% design progress) which includes an Executive Summary, Basis of Design, and Code Review, based on the data collected in this phase. a. The Design Brief shall identify where existing equipment is deficient with current Codes and Standards. b. The Design Brief will address how all project goals will be met. c. Provide a Class D cost estimate of Proposed Design Solution that is itemized and includes a breakdown of labour and materials. 10. Submit Design Brief and Cost Estimate for UHN review and approval. 5. Phase 2: Design Development 1. Produce a detailed design to implement the OR Elevators Modernization. 2. As in Phase 1, the proponent will continue to spend time on site as needed in order to understand the existing systems. It is not acceptable to produce a design based on off-site reviews of drawings. 3. Review and understand the traffic and use of the OR Elevators in order to develop a plan for elevator shutdowns that includes any necessary redirection of patient/operational traffic. 4. Develop an implementation plan to modernize the elevators. These elevators serve critical areas within the Fell Pavilion and downtime must 5. be minimized. 6. Develop project implementation plan that is to address construction considerations such as: phasing, limiting interruptions to building operations, afterhours work, pathways to install new equipment, etc. Include plan in 60% Design submission. Update the plan as needed with new information. 7. It expected that the proponent will work with a 3rd party cost consultant, selected by UHN, to conduct design reviews. The cost consultant will be part of the team and will attend design review meetings. Design submissions shall be provided to the cost consultant and the proponent will be required to review feedback from cost consultant. 8. It is expected that the proponent will work with a 3rd party commissioning agent, selected by UHN, to conduct design reviews. The commissioning agent is will attend design review meetings and provide input on design submissions. The proponent is required to incorporate input from the commissioning agent into the design documents. 9. Submit and present a preliminary design submission, at 60% design development, for review and approval by UHN. The submission shall include: a.
