New York City Economic Development Corporation (NYCEDC) is seeking qualified firms to construct infrastructure and resiliency improvements at Coney Island Hospital.

Due its location, the hospital is vulnerable to extreme coastal storms and in October 2012, the facility suffered extensive flood damage as a result of Superstorm Sandy. Since then the hospital has temporarily restored the damaged areas and, working with the Federal Emergency Management Agency (“FEMA”), have developed plans to mitigate damage from future storms and flooding.

NYCEDC, as the lead of an interagency team, is now focused on the Major Work project. The construction of the Coney Island Hospital campus project is currently envisioned to build a new resilient acute care hospital tower to be known as the Critical Services Structure (“CSS”) and to include the following work:

  • Provide on-site valet parking for 300 cars
  • Demolition of existing buildings, including Hammett Pavilion, Building 6, and various existing site improvements;
  • Renovation and selective demolition of 60,000 gross sq. feet including portions of the existing Main Building and Tower Building; and
  • Build a new permanent flood mitigation structure (s) (e.g. flood wall) around the campus.

NYCEDC is seeking qualifications for the following types of construction contractors:

Concrete Contractors Fire Protection Steel Work
Abatement Contractors Masonry Roofing and Waterproofing
Demolition Contractors Site/Civil Work Spray on Fire Proofing
Electricians Low Voltage Electrician Tile Work
Plumbers Site Fencing Flooring
Elevator Contractor Painting Windows
Scaffolding/Sidewalk Bridge Carpentry General Contractors

Foundation Contractors Curtain Wall Superstructure Concrete

NYCEDC plans to select contractors on the basis of factors stated in the RFQ which include, but are not limited to: the firm’s demonstrated experience and expertise in the particular trade for which the firm is submitting its qualifications; the firm’s composition and experience in coordinating and implementing similar projects; the firm’s familiarity with public approvals, permitting and experience working with multiple governmental agencies; the firm’s record regarding accidents and lost work days on construction projects; and the firm’s resources available for the Project.

The Services described above will require extensive coordination and collaboration among the Construction Management firm (the “CM”) hired by NYCEDC, the other construction trades working within the Project Site, and the Project Team.

NYCEDC has contracted with NBBJ to lead the design effort for all contract documents associated with the Services. The CM will provide construction management services for the Project, including holding all construction subcontracts for the Project.

NYCEDC anticipates that initial projects will be procured in Q1 2017. Design packages will continue to be completed and released periodically with final projects’ anticipated completion in May 2022. NYCEDC will issue advertisements in the City Record and provide a notice on EDC’s procurement website ( of forthcoming design packages to be issued by the CM. Once NYCEDC posts an advertisement for a forthcoming design package, firms will have approximately 30 days to provide their qualifications in order to be considered for the prequalified list of firms who will receive the bid package from the CM.

It is the policy of NYCEDC to comply with all federal, state and City laws and regulations which prohibit unlawful discrimination because of race, creed, color, national origin, sex, age, disability, marital status and other protected category and to take affirmative action in working with contracting parties to ensure certified Minority and Women-owned Business Enterprises (MWBEs) share in the economic opportunities generated by NYCEDC’s projects and initiatives.
