Barton Malow

Simmons Bank Liberty Stadium

Project Description

Phase 1 includes renovation of the existing East Side Suite Level Two to accommodate moving media and gameday operations from their current West Side location to prepare for Phase 2, as well as other general upkeep, deferred maintenance and site prep elements.  Phase 2 of the project will include the transformation of the stadium’s West Side to dramatically improve the look of the stadium and provide several modern-day premium seating options (including Founders’ Suites, Founders’ Loge Boxes and additional private suites), create a unique interior “party plaza” area for all fans and begin initial perimeter and halo upgrades to create a hospitality space around the stadium.

Procurement: Understanding Process

  1. Search for Bidders – Project teams review internet databases, owner recommendations and community partner lists for vendors who match upcoming bid packages. 
  2. Outreach Event – Vendors who attend the Outreach Event have the opportunity to meet the Barton Malow team, learn more about the project and connect with potential partners.
  3. Register + Pre-qualify – All vendors interested in bidding on the project must both Register and Pre-qualify. Vendors must register for each project they are interested in bidding.  Vendors pre-qualify their business only once – this step is not required for every project.
  4. Invitation to Bid – Registered and pre-qualified vendors will receive an invitation to bid on the project. This will be sent via email using the Barton Malow online bidding tool, BuildingConnected.
  5. Pre-bid Meeting – Invited bidders have the opportunity to attend a pre-bid meeting where they may ask further questions about the project, working with Barton Malow and the scope of work they have been invited to bid on.  
  6. Bid Day – This is the day all bidders submit their bids for review. Bids must be submitted according to the process and procedures outlined in the materials received with the invitation to bid.
  7. Bid Evaluation – Bids received will be reviewed based on the project’s evaluation criteria.  Bids are evaluated by the community engagement team, construction project team, the owner/client and a neutral compliance party (as applicable).
