For Bosc Bridge Replacement Project

 

FABRICATION AND DELIVERY OF ALL-STEEL BRIDGE STRUCTURE

 

 

SITE LOCATION:          Bosc Bridge – Boyne River – NE5-8-8W

UTM Coordinates     - 535670E, 5498265N (Zone 14) CLOSING DATE: August 4th, 2021, at 1:00 p.m. (Central Time)

 

INTRODUCTION

1.                  The existing Bosc Bridge is 12.5 metres long, comprising 2 timber spans. The crossing has reached the end of its service life is closed and requires replacement.

2.                  Wolfrom Engineering Ltd. has undertaken Preliminary Engineering and has determined that soil conditions for a deep foundation at this site are poor and will preclude the use of a precast concrete structure due to its excessive self-weight. Wolfrom recommends an 18 m clear span All-Steel superstructure to be founded on shallow, (~ 25 Ft.) sheet pile wall abutments.

3.                  The Municipality of Norfolk Treherne is inviting quotations from fabricators for one All-Steel Bridge including delivery to the site and based on the required Scope of Work presented below.

CONTENT OF PROPOSALS

7.                  Proposals shall address the items set out in Scope of Work as an all-in Quotation price, and include details of all proponent’s conditions and exclusion.

As “time is of the essence” final construction drawings and construction tenders cannot proceed to completed without bridge loadings, therefore an estimate in weeks required to provide Fabrication engineering is required for proposal evaluation.

EVALUATION PROCESS

8.                  All Proposals received will be reviewed by the Municipal Council, and the Project Manager.  The award of a request for quotation will typically go to the lowest bid received, unless disqualified. If questions arise as to the proposal content the Project Manager will contact the proponent for clarification, before any disqualification.
