NAICS code: 237110 Water and Sewer Line and Related Structures Construction

Size Standard: $10 - $15 Million.

This contract is anticipated to be the first contract for a multi-phase effort to rehabilitate the turf and soil of the National Mall. Each phase of this project will be completed under separate stand-alone contracts.

The project consists of soil re-engineering; replacement of irrigation systems; installation of a pump house; installation of drainage systems, including granite curb, inlets, and underground water collection systems and storage structures; and re-establishment of turf. The project is located within the National Mall, West Potomac Park, in downtown Washington, D.C. The project focuses on reconstructing the lawn panels, which are sandwiched between the elm tree panels aligning Madison and Jefferson Drives and between the streets of 3rd and 7th. The work will be performed on and immediately adjacent to historically significant features which directly contribute to the historic significance of the National Mall. Project work will include improvements to existing lawn panels; heavy civil work with deep utilities, soil rehabilitation, granite curb and inlet installation with tight tolerances, and very fine grading; structural and utility work associated with the installation of the underground cast-in-place concrete pump house, pre-cast concrete cisterns and irrigation and drainage systems; and seeding, growth and maintenance of the turf until it is accepted by the Government. All construction work must be performed in a manner that provides the greatest benefit to this highly significant, visible, prominent civic space with adjacent museums and visitor attractions. All work must be performed in strict adherence to all regulatory, National Park Service, and United States Park Police requirements including, but not limited to, regulatory stormwater, sedimentation, and erosion control measures and scheduled and unscheduled work stoppages due to National Park Service events or other governmental operations. Work will need to be laid out with staging areas, fencing and delivery and haul routes established in accordance with the contract documents, so as to minimize impacts to resources and pubic use of the adjacent park grounds. Submittal of contractor produced plans describing the means, methods, and schedules of all major work operations will be required for Government review and approval in order to ensure that all such operations will be carried out in accordance with the contract documents and in a manner commensurate with the constrained, highly visible, and nationally significant nature of the work site. Continuous communication and coordination with the National Park Service and its designated representatives will be required.

TYPE OF ACQUISITION: A negotiated firm-fixed price contract will be awarded requiring submission of both a technical and a price proposal. The government will consider an offeror's technical capability, past performance, subcontracting plan and price to determine the best value (trade-off process) to the government. The government reserves the right to award without discussions

CONSTRUCTION PRICE RANGE for this project is estimated to be between $10,000,000 - $15,000,000. Time for completion will be 450 calendar days. It is anticipated that the notice to proceed will be issued in August 2011, with an expected completion date of October 2012. Proposal receipt date is May 23, 2011 as stated in the solicitation.
