District is seeking Proposals from CM/GC Contractors with demonstrated experience in CM/GC project delivery to self-perform the replacement of live large-diameter sanitary sewer trunks within natural resource areas and high traffic areas. A brief summary of work for each phase is provided in the attached Request for Proposals (RFP) (a more detailed description is included in the CM/GC Contract attached to the RFP). Generally the Project includes the following components:
- Preconstruction services such as constructability review, estimating, scheduling, and general assistance to Design Engineer for preparing permits, easements, and finalizing design documents.
- Replacement and upsize of approximately 4,400 linear feet of live sanitary sewer pipe, referred to as Segment A (Segment A begins at the intersection of SW Fischer Road and SW 131st Avenue and extends south down SW 131st Avenue to a point approximately 400 feet south of SW Bedford Street, then east along the Tualatin River to District’s King City Siphon located at the southern end of SW 122nd Avenue). The existing pipe ranges from 18 inches to 27 inches and is a mix of plastic and concrete with several live service laterals. The lower half is installed at minimum slope and is located within resource areas on private property along the Tualatin River. The upper half is located in SW 131st Avenue Right-of-Way.
- Replacement and upsize of approximately 3,300 linear feet of live sanitary sewer pipe and approximately 2,200 linear feet of new sanitary sewer pipe, referred to as Segment E (Segment E begins near the intersection of SW Myrtle and SW Beef Bend Road and extends east on SW Beef Bend Road to SW 131st Avenue, then south on SW 131st Avenue to the intersection of SW Fischer Road). The existing pipe ranges from 8 inches to 18 inches and is mainly plastic with several live service laterals. Most of
Segment E is located in Right-of-Way (SW 131st Avenue and SW Beef Bend Road), with one portion cutting across the Deer Creek Elementary School field.
- The estimated construction cost of the Project is $3.5 million.
District wishes to hire the CM/GC early in the development of the Project to benefit from, among other things, the CM/GC’s assistance in Project planning. Services will be provided in two phases: Phase I, preconstruction services, and Phase II, construction services as described in the attached RFP. District intends to negotiate the price for each phase separately. Phase I is anticipated to occur this winter with Phase II services to occur summer of 2018. The CM/GC will provide preconstruction services throughout the design of the Project. At the completion of the design, or at any point in the preconstruction phase, prior to the completion of design, as requested by District, the CM/GC will be required to provide a proposed Guaranteed Maximum Price (GMP) to act as the CM/GC for the construction and assume the risk of delivering the Project on schedule at or under the GMP. Issuance of a GMP Amendment by District and Notice to Proceed will initiate the construction phase, which will include construction of the Project.
