PURPOSE: The Nashville District U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) is issuing this Invitation for Bid (IFB) solicitation for Mooring Cell Construction at Pickwick Lock and Dam, Counce, TN.

PROJECT DESCRIPTION: USACE anticipates a firm fixed-price construction contract to accomplish the following work at Pickwick Lock and Dam:

1) Access by water. Most work will be located at Tennessee River Mile (TRM) 209 immediately upstream of the dam. The only access to provide equipment and materials to this worksite will be by water or across the channel for the lock's upper approach.

2) Government furnished property. Sheet piles will be Government furnished and are stored at the Barkley Lock & Dam Storage Yard (NAD 83 & NAVD 88 - E: 917030.8, N: 1898736.0). All other materials shall be provided by the contractor. The contractor will be responsible for pick up and transporting all sheet piles specified without damage. A crane may be necessary to move sheet piles closer to or onto the floating barge. No spreader bar or cellular sheet pile template will be provided and will be the responsibility of the contractor.

3) Demolition. One Mooring Cell at Pickwick Lock and Dam, specifically Tennessee River Mile (TRM) 209 will be replaced. Specific coordinates will be provided by the Contracting Officer Representative. Demolition of the cell requires removal and storage of the aggregate, and removal of sheet piles. The removed aggregate will remain Government property and must be salvaged as fill for the new replacement cell. The remaining aggregate necessary to fill the cell shall be provided by the contractor. The existing sheet piles have significant voids in the sheeting and must be removed. The removed sheet piles shall be the property of the contractor. All mooring ring assemblies removed shall be property of the contractor. All horizontal fenders shall be removed and be property of the contractor.
