Re-Bid For Additions And Renovations to The Mecklenburg County ABC Board Retail Store at 1609 North Graham Street, Charlotte, NC

by July 3, 2019




The Mecklenburg County ABC Board is seeking proposals for the addition and renovations to the existing ABC Store located at 1609 North Graham Street, Charlotte, NC.  This project will be bid formally and will be awarded as a single prime contract to the successful, qualified bidder. Bidding is open to licensed General Contractors in good standing with and currently licensed by the North Carolina Licensing Board for General Contractors, with an unlimited license, adequate bonding capacity, appropriate insurance coverage and an appropriately skilled management and supervisory team along with experienced and skilled subcontractors, suppliers and vendors.

Scope consists of site work including underground utility work, grading, stoning, concrete curb, gutter and sidewalk work as well as completing the stormwater systems as shown on the drawings, asphalt paving, decorative planting, required trees, turf and all required temporary construction measures. Backflow preventer work will also be required as a part of this project.

The existing ABC building on this site is a single-story masonry bearing wall structure with a precast concrete double-tee roof structure.  The portion of this existing structure closest to North Graham street is to be demolished.  The new addition is a tall, single story building with an exposed structural steel frame.  The new floor in both the new and existing building will be a poured in place concrete slab, (stained and polished in the retail area of the store). There will be light gauge steel framed walls, aluminum and glass curtain wall window assemblies on all four sides, single ply roof and brick veneer concealing continuous rigid insulation and air barrier. The interior consists of painted sheetrock and brick veneer on metal stud walls, exposed primed and painted structure in the walls and ceiling / roof, some lay in ceilings (or exposed existing precast roof structure in the warehouse).  The building will be fully heated and cooled, appropriately lit, plumbed and ready for ABC to occupy.  Coordination with and accommodation of an owner engaged retail shelving contractor and graphics/ signage contractor is required. Upon completion, the resulting building will contain approximately 7,300 gross square feet.  A full Certificate of Occupancy will be required at conclusion of the project.
