Hi, there is a question from NCARB practice exam related to Design-Build, the answer is BDE. In this scenario, why can't the architect respond to this RFP and list the contractor as the consultant?
Besides the practice exam question, I am also looking for advice to take PCM. I noticed many questions are composed in a weird way that's hard for me to relate to study materials; pick 3 and pick 4 become a lucky wheel game. I read through AHPP, Ballast and did well in practice exams, early this year I passed PJM and CE. Stucking with PCM really has been a big discouragement and brings a lot of confusion. It would be very much appreciated if someone could offer some help here, thank you in advance.
Question from Practice exam:
A school board issues an RFP for a new elementary school. CBA Architects has significant experience in designing elementary schools and is eager to respond to the RFP. They contact Building General Contractors (BGC), who has built several schools for CBA's clients. CBA is organized as a professional corporation and BGC is organized as an S corporation. The RFP contains the following information:
- The proposal should be design-build.
- The construction budget will be $20 million.
- The responding entity should include a complete bond and compliance with prevailing wage regulations.
- The response is due in three weeks along with a complete fee.
Which of the following arrangements should CBA and BGC consider for their response to the RFP? Check the three that apply.
|A.||CBA submits an RFP response and fee and lists BGC as the consulting contractor.
|B.||CBA and BGC form a new LLC and then submit an RFP response and fee.
|C.||CBA and BGC form a new C corporation and then submit an RFP response and fee.|
|D.||CBA and BGC form a joint-venture partnership and then submit an RFP response and fee.|
|E.||BGC submits an RFP response and fee and includes CBA as the consulting architect.|
|F.||BGC submits an RFP response and fee and CBA submits a separate response and fee for architectural services.|
