Construction Project: Lower Granite Adult Fishway Entrances NSE-3 and NPE-3 Closures

This will be a firm fixed-price construction contract located at Lower Granite Dam, Pomeroy, WA. Estimated construction magnitude is between $250,000 and $500,000. Performance and payment bonds (100%) will be required. NAICS is 237990 Other Heavy and Civil Engineering Construction - $36.5 MIL in annual receipts.

See up-coming solicitation, W912EF17B0016 Lower Granite Adult Fishway Entrances NSE-3 and NPE-3 Closures, for details.

Adult Fishway Entrances NSE-3 and NPE-3 identified on the attached drawing will be permanently sealed with reinforced self-consolidating concrete at Lower Granite Dam. These openings are side entrances to the adult ladder that are no longer used. The two entrances are partially under water so it is expected these areas will require dewatering to facilitate installation of concrete steel reinforcement and concrete. The steel reinforcement and anchorage requirements will be provided by the Government.

The Contractor will be responsible for removing and disposing of the existing composite concrete/steel bulkheads located at the NSE-3 and NPE-3 locations.

The Contractor will be responsible for designing, fabricating and installing, removing two steel bulkheads necessary to dewater the NSE-3 and NPE-3 entrances using the Government provided load cases stated in the upcoming solicitation. The maximum head on the gates, due to concrete loading, is 28 feet. The opening the bulkheads are to be placed over is approximately 7 feet wide by 12 feet high. The bulkheads will consist of bolted connections (no weld connections) and the Contractor is responsible for anchoring the bulkheads to the entrances using divers.

After the concrete has cured sufficiently, the Contractor will restore the areas of work to the original condition. This will include the removal of concrete forms and other construction related items. Concrete anchorage used to facilitate construction shall be cut off, 1.5 inches of anchor removed below the surface of the concrete and hand packed with non-shrink grout. Stainless steel anchors do not require removal of anchor material below the concrete surface and can be cut flush with the concrete.

The work for this contract has to be completed during the corresponding fish ladder outage. There are no spillway flows anticipated during this time. It is the Contractor's responsibility to devise the means and methods regarding the transportation of concrete to the necessary locations and subsequent placement.

All on-site work shall be performed in accordance with the Corps of Engineers Safety and Health Requirements Manual (EM 385-1-1).

The Contractor will be responsible for establishing and managing an effective on-site Safety and Health program in accordance with EM 385-1-1 that will require the development and submission of a comprehensive project specific Accident Prevention Plan for Government acceptance. In addition, the Contractor will be required to develop and submit for Government acceptance Activity Hazard Analyses for each phase of work and a project specific Fall Protection Plan that comply with OSHA and State Regulations, EM 385-1-1, and ASSE/SAFE Z359.

The Contractor will be required to use the Government-furnished Construction Contractor Module (referred to as QCS) of the Resident Management System (RMS) to record, maintain, and submit various information throughout the contract period. QCS is a Windows-based program that can be run on a stand-alone personal computer or on a network. The Government will make the QCS software available to the Contractor after contract award.
