Meeting Date: 11/19/2014  

SUBJECT MATTER:
Receive, consider and act upon a selection of professional design services for The Woodlands Transportation Center/Parking Structure;
FISCAL IMPACT:
TBD
BACKGROUND:
On November 13, 2014, the Ad Hoc Transportation Committee considered the staff recommendation of a consultant to perform design-related services for The Woodlands Transportation Center & Parking Structure (RFQ No.: 14-0930-1).  Six (6) prospective consultant teams responded.
 
Staff presented the results of the evaluations of the Statements of Qualifications (SOQ) to the Committee based on the evaluation factors set forth in the solicitation. Independently and unanimously, each of the members of the evaluation team selected the same two (2) prospective consultant teams, PGAL and RdlR Architects, Inc, for inclusion on the shortlist of qualified firms.
 
After interviews with the shortlisted teams, and long and painstaking deliberations, PGAL was determined to be more qualified by the slightest margin because, as a team, they have more experience with projects in The Woodlands Town Center.
 
Additionally, PGAL is the design consultant for the proposed permanent ice skating rink between the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion and the project site. The proximity of that project to the proposed Transportation Center & Parking Structure provides the opportunity to seamlessly coordinate the design and eventual construction of the two projects.
 
Please see the attached documentation for more details.
RECOMMENDATION:
Approve the recommendation of the Ad Hoc Transportation Committee to select the PGAL team as the design consultants for The Woodlands Transportation Center & Parking Structure with RdlR as the second choice should contract negotiations with PGAL not prove successful.
