Solicitation Description:

The Texas Historical Commission (THC) seeks competitive sealed proposals pursuant to Texas Government Code §442.005 to establish a contract for General Construction in accordance with the specifications contained in this Request for Proposal (RFP”). 

The Texas Historical Commission seeks a general contractor firm that has documented experience with projects of the type, scale and scope described in this RFP. Contractor must have a MINIMUM of 8 years’ experience in construction similar to the type of work required by these Contract Documents (as judged by THC) to be eligible for contract award. Preference will be given to respondents who have completed similar projects. THC requires all work to comply with all applicable Federal and State laws, codes, and standards.


The two-story ranch house at the Charles and Mary Ann Goodnight Ranch State Historic Site was built in 1887 and originally featured five functional brick chimneys. During an extensive renovation project conducted in 2008 (prior to State ownership), the historic masonry chimneys were removed and three of them were reconstructed using wood framing and veneer brick. The veneer brick system has failed. This project will include removing the failing veneer brick at the three existing chimneys and replacing it with a new veneer brick system with improved detailing, as well as reconstructing two missing chimneys in a similar manner, as described in the attached Construction Documents.

A Mandatory Pre-Bid meeting will be held at the project site at the time scheduled above.  Contractor attendance at this meeting is required for a proposal to be accepted by THC.

Respondents should become thoroughly familiar with the existing conditions and requirements. In addition to attending the Mandatory Pre-Bid meeting, respondents may arrange additional visits to the site by contacting the site manager Lindsay Pannell in advance at 806-204-1269.

All inquiries shall be submitted in writing to Christi Duve at christi.duve@thc.texas.gov

All written inquiries will result in written responses posted to the ESBD, available at www.txsmartbuy.com/sp. Award will be posted on  http://www.txsmartbuy.com/sp.
