City issues next RFQ for Renew Jordan Creek

Posted online

The city of Springfield issued its next request for qualifications for the downtown Jordan Creek daylighting project.

The city is accepting proposals through 1 p.m. Nov. 16 for a “construction manager at risk” for the project dubbed Renew Jordan Creek, according to a news release. The selected company would provide planning and construction services, as well as input on schedules, market conditions, budgets, methods and overall construction costs.

"The Renew Jordan Creek project is large scale and complicated," said city project manager Kirkland Preston, in the release. “The goal for using CMAR is to bring the construction industry in early so we can integrate real-world construction expertise and guidance on constructability into the design process.”

During a previous RFQ process this summer, the city hired Olsson Inc. to provide civil engineering and landscape architecture design for the project. City officials could not be reached for comment by deadline on the costs for the construction management, civil engineering and landscape architecture services.

The multiphase project will “daylight” Jordan Creek by removing concrete box culverts that cover the downtown waterway and modifying the existing floodplain and floodway areas, according to past Springfield Business Journal reporting. Renew Jordan Creek is a key project for Springfield’s placemaking priority in the latest 20-year plan, dubbed Forward SGF.

The project is slated to take several years and likely will be completed by 2024, according to past reporting.
