The City of Indianapolis, USA, received the final proposals from the three shortlisted bidders for the construction of the new Marion County criminal justice complex.
The three teams are the following:
The preferred bidder is scheduled to be selected on 23 December 2014. Construction is expected to start early 2015 and finally the new Marion County criminal justice complex is scheduled to be opened in 2018.
The new consolidated criminal justice campus will include: 3,480 bed detention facility, 750 bed minimum security/ transitional community corrections facility, 32 courtroom courthouse, a law office building, a juvenile court and 100 bed juvenile detention center, a Sheriff's office, a Surface and structured parking facilities, and a Central facilities for maintenance, warehouse, central plant and underground connecting tunnel system.
The project will be developed on a design, build, finance, operation and maintenance (DBFOM) basis.
The total project investment estimated at US$300 million.
The project's request for revised proposals (RFRP) considered that teams could not ask for an annual payment higher than the City's stated annual affordability limit of US$50.047 million, an important factor to ensure the project can be completed within the existing agencies' budgets.
Adam Collins, Deputy Mayor of Economic Development for the City of Indianapolis stated:
"From day one, our plan for building a new, modern justice complex has required proposals that improve the safety and efficiency of our facilities, but without a tax increase. We appreciate the work of the bidding teams, our partners and the community for their input and patience to help us reach this critical milestone, while enabling us to protect the interests of our taxpayers."
