Shared by: lwk36704
SAWS 2010 Design Services Preview SAWS is announcing the upcoming Request for Qualifications (RFQs) for future 2010 Engineering Services. Below are the summaries and the total estimated budget for these projects and the number of firms that are anticipated to be selected. The intent of this preview information is to allow all interested firms sufficient time to research each project of interest and form any teams necessary to accomplish the project objectives. Of these projects, several will be solicited through a single RFQ and only one submittal will be needed to be considered for those groups of projects. Unspecified Engineering Services Contracts The solicitation for Unspecified Engineering Services for sewer projects and water projects will be issued as one RFQ; however, these will be separate contracts and as many as three firms for each type of contract. Unspecified Engineering Services Contract - Sewer The unspecified services engineering contracts are for design services to repair/replace sewer mains that have experienced cave-ins and overflows. These projects vary in size and location and may require the solicitation of contractor construction services on a rushed or non-advanced urgent basis. These projects will be constructed on an emergency basis to correct unsanitary and potentially hazardous conditions that pose a threat to public health and safety. In addition, projects may consist of lift station elimination design services. As many as three contracts will be awarded for these services and the total anticipated budget for these contracts is $1,500,000. Unspecified Engineering Services Contract - Water The unspecified services engineering contracts are for design services to repair/replace water mains that have experienced a high rate of main failure. These projects vary in size and location, and may require the solicitation of contractor construction services on a rushed or non-advanced urgent basis. Projects will replace sub-standard or deteriorated water mains requiring immediate replacements. As many as three contracts will be awarded for these services and the total anticipated budget for these contracts is $450,000. 281/1604 Interchange Project Professional Engineering Design Services will be required to identify conflicts and design the necessary water/sewer facilities adjustments in connection with the 281/1604 Interchange Project. The Interchange Project is currently in the schematic phase. The extent of the adjustment is unknown at this time. The Design of this project will be coordinated with the Alamo Regional Mobility selected design build contractor/TxDOT and appropriate utilities. The design will require engineering firms with knowledge of TxDOT procedures and design requirements for utilities using TxDOT Right of Way. Supplemental services will be required for geotechnical services, sub surface investigation, TxDOT assembly agreements, TxDOT Exception Request and any other permit required for clearing SAWS non joint bid project. Basic Services will follow SAWS standard engineering contract but will be setup as a work order task. This project has the potential of having an accelerate design schedule. The estimated Engineering fees are currently unknown but may be up to $700,000. Production and Treatment SCADA Master Plan SAWS is pursuing professional engineering services for design services to upgrade and integrate the existing Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) and Distributed Control System (DCS) systems and develop a SCADA standard and propose design changes that all water distribution and transmission systems, aquifer storage and recovery plant, water recycling centers, lift stations, and heating & cooling facilities can adhere to. The selected Consultant shall complete an assessment and evaluation, and provide recommendations for enhancements and upgrades of the existing systems. The estimated Engineering fees are currently unknown but may be up to $500,000. Leon Creek WRC Interconnect to Medina River Sewer Outfall Project This project is for professional engineering services for the design of approximately 12,000 LF of 60-inch gravity sewer line to convey raw wastewater from the Leon Creek Water Recycling Center (WRC) to the Medina River Sewer Outfall (MRSO) and associated modifications at the Leon Creek WRC to accommodate the flow diversion. The selected Consultant shall provide plans, specifications, and construction phase services for the project. The project will also include required permitting, surveying, and geotechnical engineering services along with field notes and easement exhibits and environmental and archaeological services for the proposed pipeline. The anticipated budget for this contract is $750,000. Replace Tanks at Port SA Phase 1 Project This project is for professional engineering services for the Port San Antonio Elevated Storage Tank Project. The selected consultant will provide plans and specifications for the construction of a 1.0 MG composite elevated storage tank that will serve Port San Antonio and will be located in the general vicinity of Port San Antonio serving Pressure Zone 4A in southwest Bexar County. The anticipated budget for this contract is $250,000.
