Scope Development

The Library team and its stakeholders determine the specific work to be accomplished, prioritizing the needs and goals within the budget.

Design Procurement

Qualified architects, engineers and other design consultants are sought out for the project through a competitive, public process conducted according to the procurement guidelines of the City, State and/or Queens Library’s purchasing policy. Most contracts must be approved by the NYC Office of Management and Budget and registered by the City Comptroller.

In Design

The design consultants work through a process to produce detailed designs that meet the project goals. Because most of Queens Library’s facilities are owned by the City of New York, changes to the exterior of the buildings must be approved by the Public Design Commission. After all the stakeholders have signed off on the design, the consultants generate a detailed set of construction documents to be used as the basis for contractor bidding and construction.

Construction Procurement

Bidders for construction contracts undergo a thorough “vetting” process, which ensures that contracts are awarded to the lowest responsive and responsible bidder. If required, the contract is filed for registration with the City Comptroller.

Construction

Contractors build the project according to the construction documents. Queens Library’s project managers monitor the progress of the project to help ensure quality and resolve any issues.

Fit-Out

As construction concludes, Queens Library assumes control of the site and fits out the space with furniture, fixtures, equipment, data access, computers, books and other library materials.
