Request for Qualification – Renew Jordan Creek – Main to Boonville (2019PW0073)
Request for Qualifications (also referred to as RFQ) for Construction Manager At Risk (CMAR) Services
for Renew Jordan Creek – Main to Boonville
The City of Springfield is soliciting letters of interest and qualification statements from firms interested in
providing Construction Manager at Risk (CMAR) services for the design and implementation of Renew Jordan
Creek – Main to Boonville (herein referred to as “the Project”). An example scope of work for Construction
Manager at Risk services is provided in the attachments as Exhibit D.
The Project is an initial downstream phase in a planned multi-phase project to revitalize Jordan Creek through
downtown Springfield, Missouri. The project’s primary objectives are to reduce flood damages to property and
infrastructure from recurrent flooding, renew this area of downtown for enhanced economic development, and
improve water quality in Jordan Creek. It is envisioned that “daylighting” of large portions of Jordan Creek,
which are currently confined to underground box culverts, can transform Jordan Creek into a community
amenity by adding thoughtfully integrated hardscapes and greenspaces to the downtown environment.
