RE: Request for Statement of Qualifications ("RFQ") for  Design-Build  ("DB") Services  to construct  West County Re-Entry, Treatment and Replacement Housing (WRTH) ("Project"), and that the County has determined that all D/B Entities must be prequalified.

The Capital Projects Management Division, Public Works Department, is requesting Statements of Qualifications ("SOQs") from firms interested in providing DB services for the subject project. SOQs are due at the Capital Projects Management Division  office,  255  Glacier  Drive,  Martinez,  CA  94553, no later than 2:00 p.m. {PDT}, Friday, December 6, 2019. SOQs shall be addressed to the attention of Mr. Ramesh Kanzaria, Division Manager



The proposed new structures will comply with the 2016 California Building Code, Title 15 and Title 24 requirements and Contra Costa County Building Design and Construction Guidelines. Note: Final plans approval and permit  will need  to comply with 2019 CBC which goes into effect January 1, 2020.


The project, referred to as the West County Reentry, Treatment, and Housing Facility (WRTH) will address the identified needs for safe, high-security replacement housing by constructing a 106,430 square foot housing complex inside the existing and operating West County Detention Facility (WCDF). The new West County Re-entry, Treatment and Housing Facility (WRTH) shall include the following program elements:

  • A medical/psychiatric outpatient clinic.
  • In-person non-contact visitation, child-parenting contact visitation and video visitation.
    • Central control, holding and transportation and other security related functions.
    • Adult detention facilities, (288) beds consisting of three 64-bed high-security Housing Units with extensive program and support elements and two behavioral health units. A 32-Bed Intensive Services Unit (ISU) for Incarcerated Persons (IP' s) with serious and persistent mental illness and a 64-bed Special Services Unit (SSU) for IP's with mild to moderate mental health diagnoses who are relatively stable but continue to require treatment and programming support for ongoing recovery. A portion ofIP's in the ISU may, when more stabilized and recovered, be "stepped down" to the SSU, but the most severely mentally ill IP's in the ISU may never achieve that level of functioning and may spend their entire time at WRTH in the ISU.
