Question Number  1:   Could you please confirm that the rental rate for storage space is $12.00 per square-foot?
    Answer:   Yes, storage space currently costs $12.00 per square foot per year and is subject to change.
Question Number  2:   Maximum number of concepts in the Leased Premises: Concept Description states that “this location is intended for the development of multiple concepts within one space, including concepts featuring specialty coffee, quick-service restaurant with a full-service bar along with a common seating area”. And that “The space must be sub-divided into three (3) concepts”. We ask that you confirm the following 3 items: 1) Please confirm that inclusion of a Specialty Coffee is REQUIRED. 2) Since not all quick-service concepts feature a full-service bar, please confirm that a proposal that incorporates a QSR and separate full-service bar is compliant with the requirements of the RFP; 3) Please confirm that proposer can include concepts in addition to Coffee, QSR and Bar. Specifically, if a fourth or fifth brand can be supported in the design of the space, will the inclusion of an additional brand(s) be compliant with the requirements of the RFP?
    Answer:   "Proposers must submit only the three concepts included in the Concept Description starting on page 8. These include specialty coffee, quick service restaurant, and casual dining restaurant with a full-service bar, as described in detail in the Concept Description section. (The wording in your question does not match the wording used to describe the concepts included in the Request for Proposals.) 1. It is required that proposers include all three of these concepts in their proposal. 2. As noted in the Concept Description, the quick service restaurant is permitted to offer limited alcohol sales, depending on the concept. The casual dining restaurant is required to have a full-service bar. 3. Proposers must submit only the three concepts included in the Concept Description. Including additional concepts shall result in the proposal being found non-responsive."
Question Number  3:   Page count: Please include in section III-3 that Menus and Product Lists of up to two (2) pages per concept will not be included in the page count. We are seeking clarity because the current table does not state this, while the dot point above the table does.
    Answer:   As referenced in Part D Section III-2 Preparation of Proposal - Proposal Narrative / B. Format: "Menus or product lists of up to two pages per concept may be attached to the end of your proposal and do not count toward the page limit. Menus and product lists may deviate from font and size requirements but must be printable on 8 ½” x 11” paper. No information other than menu items, products, and prices may be included on these pages". DEN will issue an Addendum to reference it in Part D Section III-3 Proposal Narrative Contents in the table, as well.
Question Number  4:   Attachment 2 Certificate of Good Standing: Attachment 2 states that the proposing entity must submit a Certificate of Good standing in the name of the JV or bidding entity. As the Colorado Secretary of State does not issue Certificate of Good standings for Joint Ventures, we request that this attachment be revised to delete that requirement or alternatively, that the entities comprising the Joint Venture (proposing entity) can provide Certificates of Good Standing and thereby be in compliance.
    Answer:   The bidding entity is required to obtain and submit a Certificate of Good Standing from the Colorado Secretary of State. The bidding entity must be established in a manner accepted by the Colorado Secretary of State, and questions regarding obtaining the Certificate of Good Standing should be directed to the Colorado Secretary of State.
Question Number  5:   Is any cooking allowed on the concourse level because this RFP doesn’t specify it as the others did in the past?
    Answer:   DEN’s intent is to minimize cooking on the concourse level. There is absolutely no venting allowed on the concourse level. Details on cooking is provided in the Scope of Work (revised version included in Addendum #2) and on the location page (revised version included in Addendum #2).
Question Number  6:   Space numbering is inconsistent from the RFP package and the Appendix Space Exhibits. Please confirm Concourse A West Subcore 2 is 6W in the space exhibit and Concourse A West Subcore 3 is 9W in the space exhibits document.
    Answer:   RFP 2-1 201952038 is for space in the A West Subcore 2, which also is referred to as 6W in Appendix A. Specifically, the concourse level space is labeled as CCA_02_06W_020 and the ramp level kitchen is labeled as CCA_01_06W_014 in Appendix A. RFP 2-2 201952039 is for space in the A West Subcore 3, which is also referred to as 9W in Appendix A. Specifically, the concourse level space is labeled as CCA_02_09W_020 and the ramp level kitchen is labeled as CCA_01_9W_025 in Appendix A. (Note: Addenda #2 included a revised Appendix A for RFP 2-2.)"
Question Number  7:   "2 Part Question: Part One - The Concourse A West Subcore 2 and Subcore 3 Spaces LODs shown in space exhibits differ from the Tenant Criteria Manual Outlines drawings, even though it is dated 9.3.19. Please confirm the Space Exibits dated 8.28.19 are the correct LOD. Part 2- Due to this inconsistency, there is an area shown below the base building stairs that appears to be part of the LOD in the provided plan, but not in the provided ‘Looking Southwest’ 3D view, but there is no clarification as to the design criteria for this portion of the space, as well as the area between the two stairwell cores. Can there be full height elements in this area?"
    Answer:   "Part One: The Appendix A documents dated 08.28.2019 are correct and should be used as the source document. (Note: Addenda #2 included a revised Appendix A for RFP 2-2.) The Concessions Design Guidelines document should be used as guidance for how the spaces may be used, but the Appendix A document is the most accurate for space sizes and shapes. Part Two: The space in question between the two stairwell cores should be treated in the same manner as guidelines #2 and #3 in the Concessions Design Guidelines document for each space. Specifically, guideline #2 applies to the lease line boundary and guideline #3 applies to the interior of the space. Proposer may propose wall finishes for the walls around the stairwell core, though these must be approved by the Design Review Committee. Access to the stairwell doorway must be maintained for emergency egress."
Question Number  8:   Given that it affects future A QSR locations, can the airport clarify whether the future planned A Center Core location previously referred to as “Future Bruxie” and subsequently “Fast Casual Chicken Concept” is a Bruxie, Chick-fil-A, Popeyes or something else? Also what is the procurement means and operator for that concept?

Question Number  13:   Appendix A Space Exhibits: The Concourse A West Subcore 2 and Subcore 3 Spaces LODs shown in space exhibits differ from the Tenant Criteria Manual Outlines drawings, even though it is dated 9.3.19.

Due to this inconsistency, there is an area shown below the base building stairs that appears to be part of the LOD in the provided plan, but not in the provided ‘Looking Southwest’ 3D view. As such, no clarification is provided as to the design criteria for this portion of the space or the area between the two stairwell cores. Can DEN provide full height elements in this area?
    Answer:   Answer being researched.
Question Number  14:   Appendix A Space Exhibits: Since we have to show the layout of the commissary kitchen on the floorplan, can we show this on the back side of the 11x17, so it doesn’t take away from the depiction of our floorplan?
