                            INFORMATION FOR BIDDERS

BIDS will be received by the City of Urbana (herein called the “OWNER”) acting through

The ENGINEER is the PUBLIC WORKS DIRECTOR, 706 South Glover Avenue, Urbana,
Illinois, 61802.

The CONSULTANT is Selbert Perkins Design, 2 North Riverside Plaza, Suite 1475,
Chicago, IL 60606.

Each BID must be submitted in a sealed envelope, addressed to the City of Urbana in care of
the City Engineer, 706 South Glover Avenue, Urbana, Illinois 61802. Each sealed envelope
containing a BID must be plainly marked on the outside as “Phase 1 Implementation:
Signage and Wayfinding” and the envelope should bear on the outside the name of the
BIDDER and his or her mailing address. If forwarded by mail, the sealed envelope
containing the BID must be enclosed in another envelope addressed to the City of Urbana in
care of the City Engineer, 706 South Glover Avenue, Urbana, Illinois 61802.

All questions must be submitted in writing to the owner by 2:00 P.M. prevailing time on
August 19, 2011. Written answers will be provided to all BIDDERS.

All Bids must be made on the required Bid form. All blank spaces for Bid prices must be
filled in, in ink or typewritten, and the Bid form must be fully completed and executed when
submitted. Where amounts are given in both words and figures, the words will govern. If
there is a discrepancy between the total amount and unit price, the unit prices will govern.

Each Proposal shall be accompanied by a certified check, bank draft, bank cashier's check or
bid bond acceptable to the Owner as a Proposal Guarantee, in an amount not less than five
percent (5%) of the amount bid, payable without condition to the Owner as a guaranty that
the Bidder, if awarded the Contract, will promptly execute the Agreement in accordance
with the Proposal and the other Contract Documents, and will furnish good and sufficient
bond for the faithful performance of the work. As soon as the Proposals have been
compared, the Owner shall return the Proposal Guarantees of all except the three lowest
responsible Bidders. When the Contract is executed, the Proposal Guarantees of the two
remaining unsuccessful Bidders shall be returned. The Proposal Guarantee of the successful
bidder will be retained until the Performance Bond has been executed and approved, after
which it will be returned.

The Design Intent Documents contain the provisions required for the construction of the
Project. Information obtained from an officer, agent or employee of the Owner or any other
person shall not affect the risks or obligations assumed by the Contractor or relieve him/her
from fulfilling any of the conditions of the Contract.

Bidders must satisfy themselves of the accuracy of the estimated quantities in the Bid
schedule by examination of the site and a review of the drawings and specifications,
including addenda. After Bids have been submitted, the Bidder shall not assert that there
                                                                                            City of Urbana
                                                             Phase 1 Implementation: Signage & Wayfinding
                                                                                                    Page 3

was a misunderstanding concerning the quantities of work or of the nature of the work to be
done.

Each Bidder is responsible for inspecting the site and for reading and being thoroughly
familiar with the Plans and Contract Documents, including all addenda. The failure or
omission of any Bidder to do any of the foregoing shall in no way relieve any Bidder from
any obligation in respect to his/her Bid.

Should a bidder find discrepancies in or omission from any part of the documents, or be in
doubt as to their meaning, the bidder shall at once notify the Owner at least five (5) days
prior to the deadline for bid receipt. The Owner will send written instructions in the form of
an addendum to all bidders if the information is deemed necessary by the Owner in
submitting bids. The Owner will not be responsible for any oral instructions. The failure of
the bidder to request clarification prior to submitting the bid waives the bidder’s right to
claim any ambiguity or discrepancy in the documents.

Should the Owner issue any addendum to the bid documents, the bidder shall submit
acknowledgement of receipt of the addenda on the bid form and the bid shall be based on all
addenda. Any addendum issued by the Owner shall be considered part of the bid
documents and failure to submit acknowledgement of the receipt of all addenda shall
be cause for the Owner to reject the bid.

Any Bid may be modified or withdrawn prior to the above scheduled time for the opening of
Bids or authorized postponement thereof. Any Bid received after the time and date
specified shall not be considered. No Bidder may withdraw a Bid within 90 calendar days
after the actual date of the opening thereof. Should there be reasons why the contract cannot
be awarded within the specified period, the time may be extended by mutual agreement
between the Owner and the Bidder.

Award of the Contract will be based on the responsive qualified bid.

The Owner reserves the right to reject any and all proposals, to waive any technicalities in
the proposals, or to continue the letting from time to time as deemed necessary.

A Contract Bond in the amount of 100 percent of the contract price, with a corporate surety
approved by the Owner, will be required for the faithful performance of the Contract.

Attorneys-in-fact who sign Bind Bonds or Contract Bonds must file with each bond a
certified and effective dated copy of their power of attorney.

The party to whom the Contract is awarded will be required to execute the Contract Forms
and obtain the Contract Bond within fifteen (15) calendar days after the contract has been
mailed to the Bidder. The effective date of the CONTRACT BOND shall not precede
the date of the CONTRACT. The NOTICE OF AWARD shall be accompanied by the
necessary CONTRACT Forms and BOND forms. In case of failure of the Bidder to execute
the Contract, the Owner may at his/her option consider the Bidder in default, in which case
the Bid Bond accompanying the proposal shall become the property of the Owner.
                                                                                             City of Urbana

                                                                                                     Page 4

The Owner, within fifteen (15) days of receipt of acceptable Contract Bond and Contract
signed by the party to whom the Contract was awarded, shall sign the Contract and return to
such party an executed duplicate of the Contract. Should the Owner not execute the
Contract within such period, the Bidder may by written notice withdraw his/her signed
Contract. Such notice of withdrawal shall be effective upon receipt of the notice by the
Owner.

The NOTICE TO PROCEED shall be issued within fifteen (15) days of the execution of the
CONTRACT by the OWNER. Should there be reasons why the NOTICE TO PROCEED
cannot be issued within such period, the time may be extended by mutual agreement
between the OWNER and BIDDER. If the NOTICE TO PROCEED has not been issued
within the fifteen (15) day period or within the period mutually agreed upon, the BIDDER
may terminate the CONTRACT without further liability on the part of either party. The
BIDDER shall begin work within 15 days of receipt of the NOTICE TO PROCEED.

Prior to commencement of the work, the Contractor shall purchase and maintain during the
term of the Project, such insurance as will protect him/her, the Owner, the Engineer, the
Consultant, and the Asbestos Consultant from claims arising out of work described in this
contract and performed by the Contractor, Subcontractor(s), or Sub-subcontractor(s).

The Owner may make such investigations as (s)he deems necessary to determine the ability
of the Bidder to perform the Work, and the Bidder shall furnish to the Owner all such
information and data for this purpose as the Owner may request. The Owner reserves the
right to reject any Proposal if the evidence submitted by, or investigation of, such Bidder
fails to satisfy the Owner that such Bidder is properly qualified to carry out the obligations
of the Contract and to complete the Work contemplated therein. The low Bidder shall
supply the names and addresses of major material suppliers and subcontractors when
requested to do so by the Owner.

A conditional Bid will not be accepted.

All applicable laws, ordinances, and the rules and regulations of all authorities having
jurisdiction over construction of the Project shall apply to the contract throughout.

All time limits designated as days within these documents shall be interpreted to mean
calendar days. A calendar day is every day on the calendar.

6.0    TRAFFIC CONTROL AND PROJECT SAFETY

Traffic control shall be in accordance with the applicable sections of the Standard
Specifications for Road and Bridge Construction, the applicable guidelines contained in the
Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices, these Special Provisions, and any special
details and Highway Standards.

CONTRACTOR shall present a Traffic Control Plan for approval prior to the start of
construction. No permit fee will be charged. The ENGINEER shall review the proposed
Traffic Control Plan and make any modifications deemed necessary for safety and other
reasonable considerations. Any delays, inconvenience or expenses, which the
CONTRACTOR incurs in complying with these requirements, shall be considered incidental
to the project and no additional compensation will be allowed.

When flagmen are required, CONTRACTOR shall attempt to utilize flagmen certified by
the Illinois Department of Transportation.

To ensure a prompt response to incidents involving the integrity of the work zone traffic
control devices, CONTRACTOR shall provide a telephone number where a responsible
individual can be contacted on a 24-hour-a-day basis. When the ENGINEER is notified or
determines a deficiency exists, they shall be the sole judge as to whether the deficiency is an
immediate safety hazard. CONTRACTOR shall dispatch sufficient resources within 1/2
hour of notification to make needed corrections of deficiencies that constitute an immediate
safety hazard. Other deficiencies shall be corrected within 12 hours.

If CONTRACTOR fails to restore the required traffic control and protection within the time
limits specified above, the ENGINEER may impose a daily monetary deduction for each 24-
hour period (or portion thereof) the deficiency exists. This time period will begin with the
time of notification to the CONTRACTOR and end with the ENGINEER's acceptance of the
corrections. For this project, the daily deduction will be $1,000. In addition, if the
CONTRACTOR fails to respond, the ENGINEER may correct the deficiencies and the cost
thereof will be deducted from monies due or which may become due the CONTRACTOR.
The corrective action will in no way relieve the CONTRACTOR of their contractual
requirements or responsibilities.

At the end of every work day, the CONTRACTOR shall clean up his/her work area so a safe
traveling surface is available for night time use by local traffic. The CONTRACTOR shall
be required to provide access to every driveway along each construction area before leaving
the job site at the end of the day, unless other provisions to the contrary have been approved
by the ENGINEER.

The CONTRACTOR affirmatively represents that they are skilled and experienced in the
use and interpretation of Drawings and Specifications such as those included in the
CONTRACT DOCUMENTS. Further, they also affirmatively represent that they have
carefully reviewed the Drawings and Specifications of this CONTRACT and that they have
based their Bid solely on these Documents, not relying in any way on any explanation or
interpretation, oral or written, from any other source.

Unless a CONTRACTOR shall give written notice to the CONSULTANT of any
ambiguities contained in the Drawings and Specifications prior to the submission of its Bid,
the CONTRACTOR agrees that it shall be conclusively presumed that the CONTRACTOR
has exercised his/her aforementioned skill and experience and found the Drawings and
Specifications sufficient and free from ambiguities, errors, or omissions for the purpose of
determining its CONTRACT BID Price for the performance of the Work in conformity with
the Drawings and Specifications.

If the CONTRACTOR is required to do extra work not shown in the DESIGN INTENT
DOCUMENTS or which the CONTRACTOR could reasonably not have been expected to
discover by exercising his/her aforementioned skill and experience, an equitable adjustment
in the CONTRACT BID price will be made.

B.     Insurance Specifications

1.     Insurance Required of the CONTRACTOR

Prior to commencement of the work, each CONTRACTOR shall purchase and maintain
during the term of the Project such insurance as will protect him/her, the OWNER(s) from
claims arising out of the work described in this CONTRACT and performed by the
CONTRACTOR, SUBCONTRACTOR(S) or SUB-SUBCONTRACTOR(S) consisting of:

a.     Worker’s Compensation Insurance including Employer’s liability to cover employee
       injuries or disease compensable under the Worker’s Compensation Statues of the
       states in which work is conducted under this CONTRACT; disability benefit laws, if
       any; or Federal compensation acts such as U.S. Longshoremen or Harbor Workers
       Maritime Employment, or Railroad Compensation Act(s), if applicable. Self-
       insurance plans approved by the regulatory authorities in the state in which work on
       this Project is performed are acceptable.
                                                                                         City of Urbana
                                                          Phase 1 Implementation: Signage & Wayfinding
                                                                                                Page 11



b.   A Comprehensive General Liability policy to cover bodily injury to persons other
     than employees and for damage to tangible property, including loss of use thereof,
     including the following exposures.

     (1)    All premises and operations
     (2)    Explosion, collapse and underground damage
     (3)    CONTRACTOR’S Protective coverage for independent CONTRACTORS or
            SUBCONTRACTORS employed by him/her
     (4)    Contractual Liability for the obligation assumed in the Indemnification or
            Hold Harmless agreement found in the General Conditions section of this
            CONTRACT
     (5)    The usual Personal Liability endorsement with no exclusions pertaining to
            employment

c.   A Comprehensive Automobile Liability policy to cover bodily injury and property
     damage arising out of the ownership, maintenance or use of any motor vehicle,

     provisions concerning (1) loading and unloading and (2) definitions pertaining to
     motor vehicles licensed for road use vs. unlicensed or self-propelled construction
     equipment, it is strongly recommended that the Comprehensive General Liability and
     the Comprehensive Auto Liability be written by the same insurance carrier, though
     not necessarily in one policy.

d.   The CONTRACTOR will purchase for the OWNER an OWNER’s Protective
     Liability policy or name the OWNER as an additional insured on the
     CONTRACTOR’S policies to protect the OWNER their consultants, agents,

     The OWNER or its representative may, for certain projects, require limits higher
     than those stated under “Limits of Liability” below. The CONTRACTOR is granted
     the option of arranging coverage under a single policy for the full limit required or
     by a combination of underlying policies with the balance provided by an Excess or
     Umbrella Liability policy equal to the total limit(s) requested. Umbrella or Excess
     policy wording shall be at least as broad as the primary or underlying policy(ies) and
     shall apply both to the CONTRACTOR’S general liability and to his/her automobile
     liability insurance.

2.   Limits of Liability
                                                                                           City of Urbana

       Certificate or Certificates of Insurance disclosing coverage which does not meet the
       requirements of these specifications shall not constitute a waiver of those

as a result of the construction shall be repaired to the satisfaction of the OWNER of the
utility at the CONTRACTOR’s expense, whether or not said utilities are shown on the
Plans. Existing utilities may be relocated with the approval of the OWNER of the utility.
This relocation shall be at the CONTRACTOR’s expense, done according to the
requirements of the utility OWNER and shall be sufficient to clear the proposed
improvements.

Before beginning work, the CONTRACTOR shall contact each company, municipality, or
agency maintaining utilities in the City of Urbana and request their assistance in field
                                                                                            City of Urbana

The CONTRACTOR shall direct all project related questions and concerns in writing to the
CONSULTANT for the project.

15.0    AUTHORIZED VARIATIONS IN WORK

The CONSULTANT may authorize variations in the work from the requirements of the
CONTRACT Documents. Since this contract involves anticipated work there may be
significant changes in contract quantities. These changes shall be accomplished by a Field
Order and will be binding on the OWNER, and also on the CONTRACTOR who shall
promptly perform the Work involved.

16.0    PROTECTION OF EXISTING FEATURES

CONTRACTOR shall preserve and protect all existing trees, shrubs, plantings, street signs,
parking meters, fences, retaining walls, buildings, entry ways, surface materials, property
survey monuments, structures and utility line appurtenances. Any removal and

responsibility and shall be incidental to the Contract. Any damage to existing features
within and adjacent to the work area, created by failure of the CONTRACTOR to provide
adequate protection from its construction operations, shall be repaired or replaced to the
satisfaction of the respective owner at the CONTRACTOR’s expense.

Explanations
CHAMPAIGN COUNTY

The following list is considered as those days for which holiday rates of wages for
work performed apply: New Years Day, Memorial Day, Fourth of July, Labor Day,
Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day and Veterans Day in some classifications/counties.
Generally, any of these holidays which fall on a Sunday is celebrated on the
following Monday. This then makes work performed on that Monday payable at the
appropriate overtime rate for holiday pay. Common practice in a given local may
alter certain days of celebration. If in doubt, please check with IDOL.

Oil and chip resealing (O&C) means the application of road oils and liquid asphalt
to coat an existing road surface, followed by application of aggregate chips or
gravel to coated surface, and subsequent rolling of material to seal the surface.

1.3        DESIGN CRITERIA

      A.   Structural design: Details on Drawings indicate a design approach for sign fabrication but do not necessarily
           include all fabricating details required for the complete structural integrity of the signs, including consideration
           for static, dynamic, and erection loads during handling, erecting, and service at the installed locations, nor do
           they necessarily consider the preferred shop practices of the individual Sign Fabricators. Therefore, it shall be
           the responsibility of the Fabricator to perform the complete structural design of the signs and to incorporate all
           the reasonable safety factors necessary to protect the Owner and their representatives, against public liability.
           Designs which survive rational engineering analysis will be acceptable, provided that shop drawings, including
           structural design, are approved by the Owner. Signs must meet all applicable local, state, and national codes, as
           well as testing laboratory listings where required.


1.4        SHOP DRAWINGS
           The Drawings presented for pricing are not fabrication drawings. The Signage Contractor is expected to
           provide all details necessary to effectively explain and specify the fabrication process and the expected
           performance of the installed product. The Signage Contractor must demonstrate through details and
           specifications their complete understanding of the desired final product and the method/process by which they
           are producing said product. The Signage Contractor is responsible to field measure and verify with
           architectural drawings prior to submitting Shop Drawings. Repackaging the supplied Drawings with new title
           blocks and delivering them as submittals will not be accepted. Although art may be supplied electronically,
           Signage Contractors must be prepared to create all graphic content from scratch – per instance as requested - to
           demonstrate and verify the quality and accuracy of the delivered product.

      A.   The Architectural Graphics Drawings represent the design intent for the signs required for the Project. The
           Sign Fabricator is responsible for the proper engineering of all elements of the Work and where applicable, to
           include a set of wet stamped, signed engineering calculations by a licensed Illinois Structural Engineer. The
           internal structure, dimensions, and specifications for all items shall be indicated in the shop drawings.

      B.   Description: Provide shop drawings for all items including, but not limited to the following:

           A.     Complete fabrication and installation drawings for each sign type. Indicate dimensions, materials,
                  finishes, fastening, anchorage, joining, sealing, backing, utility requirements, rough-in, and adjacent
                  related site conditions.
           B.     Each sign type with all graphic elements.
           C.     All letter styles shall be accurately reproduced.
           D.     Connections and routing for all power and data cabling.


1.5        SUBMITTALS

      A.   Procedure: Prepare submittals in accordance with the requirements of the Special Conditions, and to include
           the following:

           A.     Notes on Drawings shall clearly define any actions requiring review by the Owner.
           B.     First article of production-run items, both large and small, will be reviewed by the Owner before
                  production run is commenced.
           C.     It shall be the responsibility of the Contractor to schedule all review meetings with the Owner.

      B.   Submit physical samples of sufficient size and quantity to illustrate materials, finishes, equipment or
           workmanship, and to establish standards by which completed work will be judged. Samples must represent the
