Utilizing field trip and other appropriate input for design concepts, AMI Consulting Engineers, PA developed Schematic Design (SD) alternatives that met all project program and sustainability requirements, that also did not exceed available construction funding. Prepared and provided Class C Construction Cost Estimates for each SD alternative submitted. AMI also participated in Schematic Value Based Decision Making (VBDM) (4-hr WEBEX) for this project. AMI fully developed all SD alternatives based on results of VBDM WEBEX.

AMI prepared Bases of Design Reports (BRD) for each SD alternative preferred by VHB and the NPS. AMI assisted VHB and KIRK in the preparation of Class B Construction Estimates after preferred alternatives were selected, submitted 100% Draft SD documents to VHB, and assisted VHB in addressing and resolving NPS draft SD review comments.

AMI also prepared 100% Draft Construction Documents based on SD review comments, including specifications and two (2) coordination calls to prepare submittal list for VHB. AMI also assisted CHB and KIRK in preparing Class A Construction Cost Estimates as well as assisted VHB with compiling and formatting supplemental Design Reports. AMI submitted 100% Construction Documents to VHB and assisted in resolving NPS review comments.

This project met all requirements of the Architectural Barriers Act Accessibility Standards (ABAAS) for facilities for visitors and employees.

All work performed complied with applicable laws, regulations and NPS policies and guidelines.
