Home of Harmony Project (HOHP)

Historic Building


Fort Apache Heritage Foundation is seeking General Contractor bids for the Home of Harmony Project (HOHP), located at 116 Geronimo Street, Fort Apache, AZ 85926. HOHP entails rehabilitation of the former boy’s dormitory (built 1931), a building formally recognized as a contributor to the Fort Apache and Theodore Roosevelt School National Historic Landmark. The 25,290 sq. foot, three-story building is to be repurposed to serve the White Mountain Apache Tribe as a “town center,” with former dorm and storage rooms converted to offices, meeting and studio spaces, and six “live-work” residences. Work will include selective demolition, upgrades to site utilities, a three-story hydraulic elevator, fire sprinkler system, MP&E, CMU walls, structural steel, interior framed walls, doors, and interior finish work throughout the building, along with some limited exterior facade repairs.

General Contractors must meet the following minimum qualifications and experience standards:

1. Completion of at least one project over $5 Million within the last ten years.

2. Completion of three or more projects greater than $3 Million within the last ten years.

3. Substantial prior experience with and demonstrated ability to employ and adhere to The Secretary of the Interior’s Standards for the Treatment of Historic Properties (36 CFR Part 68, 1995), most notably the Standards for Rehabilitation of Historic Buildings.

4. Demonstrated ability to provide 100% performance and payment bonds.

General Contractors must submit an AIA A305 Qualification Statement with their bid to support and substantiate these four minimum qualification and experience requirements.

A MANDATORY PRE-BID MEETING AND WALK-THROUGH will be held at 116 Geronimo Street, Fort Apache, AZ 85926, at 2:00 pm on December 14, 2023, for all interested General Contractors who meet the minimum qualifications. Interested General Contractors are encouraged to bring their key Subcontractors to review existing building and site conditions.
