Services shall include the enforcement of the design criteria including but not limited to notifying MDAD regarding the Design-Builder's compliance or non- compliance with the requirements of the design criteria.
The purpose of the Design Criteria Package is to furnish sufficient information to permit Design-Build firms to prepare a bid or a response to MDAD's request for proposal, or to permit MDAD to enter into a negotiated Design-Build contract. The Design Criteria Package must at a minimum specify performance-based criteria for the construction project, including the legal description of the site, survey information concerning the site, material quality standards, schematic layouts and conceptual design criteria of the project, cost or budget estimates, design and construction schedules, site development requirements, provisions for utilities, storm water retention and disposal.
