Announcement  Info  :   **PLEASE BE ADVISED THAT THE SUBMITTAL DATE NOTED IN THIS NOTICE TO PROFESSIONAL CONSULTANTS IS DUE TO A SYSTEM REQUIREMENT AND IS NOT THE ACTUAL SUBMITTAL DATE FOR THIS SOLICITATION. THE ACTUAL SUBMITTAL DATE IS TO BE DETERMINED (TDB) AND WILL BE ISSUED VIA ADDENDUM. The County Mayor, Miami-Dade County (County), pursuant to Section 287.055, Florida Statutes, Sections 2-8.1 and 2-10.4 of the County Code, Implementing Order 3-34, and Administrative Order (A.O.) 3-39, announces that professional architectural and engineering services will be required for the Miami-Dade Water and Sewer Department (WASD) for design services for wastewater treatment plants related to Consent Decree (CD) projects. Proposers are advised that in accordance with language set forth in ISD Project Number E13-WASD-01R, no firms that are either a prime or subconsultant under the E13-WASD-01R contract award may participate on this solicitation. Upon the Board of County Commissioners awarding E13-WASD-01R, an Addendum for this NTPC will be issued stating the proposal submission deadline. WASD is the primary provider of water and wastewater services to Miami-Dade County serving a population of almost 2.3 million, making it among the largest water/wastewater utilities in the United States. On May 21, 2013, the Board of County Commissioners approved the CD negotiated with the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the United States Department of Justice (DOJ) and the State of Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP). The CD outlines the activities to be undertaken to reduce Sanitary Sewer Overflows (SSO’s), exceedances of treated effluent limitations, and to ensure proper management, operation and maintenance practices. All capital improvement projects must be completed on or before fifteen (15) years from the date of lodging (June 6, 2013) of the CD with the United States District Court. Many program requirements are required to be delivered within a certain time after the CD’s “effective date”, which is defined as the date the Court enters the CD or six (6) months after the date of lodging, whichever occurs first. WASD recognizes the need for design services at the wastewater treatment plants as part of the capital improvement program. The Consultant shall be familiar with and comply with the requirements of the CD which is available for review at WASD’s website at: http://www.miamidade.gov/water/wastewater-improvement-projects.asp. The Consultant shall perform preliminary design, design development, construction documents, permitting and bid services, and design services during construction for upgrades at all three (3) of the County’s wastewater treatment plants (South District, Central District and North District) for projects specified in conjunction with the CD and attached as an appendix to this solicitation. The Consultant selected will be required to work in coordination with WASD staff to deliver an integrated construction approach and schedule that does not adversely impact wastewater treatment plants (WWTP) operations, treatment capacity, or effluent quality. The Consultant shall ensure that the design of the capital improvements are technically, economically, and functionally consistent and are implemented in a manner that meets the specific deadlines and milestones of the CD and the requirements of the Clean Water Act, WASD’s National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System Permits, FDEP regulations, and any additional applicable regulatory requirements. Design services to be provided by the Consultant will include, but are not limited to, the following: 1. Develop the Basis of Design Reports (BODR) for the capital program at the WWTP’s, while taking into account all project alternatives using life cycle cost analysis and vulnerability of the facilities to climate change impacts, such as sea level rise, storm surge, wind, and flooding; as well as, recommending mitigation options for these impacts. 2. Use of Building Information Modeling Technology 3D, 4D and 5D modeling. 3. Perform wastewater treatment process modeling and computational fluid dynamic modeling in support of design efforts. 4. Conduct and/or coordinate underground utility and sub-surface investigations in support of the BODR. 5. Perform pilot testing as necessary to confirm specific design parameters. 6. Based on the Department’s approved BODR and delivery method (i.e. Design-Bid-Build, Design-Build) the Consultant will prepare the required bid documents. 7. Assist WASD in evaluating procurement methods for equipment. 8. Attain all applicable permits as necessary depending on the delivery method selected. 9. Assist WASD in the bid process, including responding to Requests for Information (RFI’s), reviewing bids and making recommendations for award. 10. Provide design services during construction including but not limited to reviewing and responding to all contractor submittals, review and respond to all contractor claims, review and respond to RFI’s and review of final certification documents provided by the contractor. One consultant will be retained under a non-exclusive Professional Services Agreement (PSA) with a maximum compensation of sixty-six million dollars ($66,000,000), inclusive of contingencies, for an effective term of five (5) years with two (2) five year options-to-renew. Note that no minimum amount of work or compensation is guaranteed under this agreement. Furthermore, the two (2) five (5) year options-to-renew are based solely on the approval of the County Mayor or County Mayor’s designee. Experience and Qualifications: 1. A Prime Consultant submitting for this solicitation must be experienced in all phases of wastewater engineering, including design, permitting, construction, operation and maintenance of wastewater treatment and disposal systems. 2. The Prime Consultant should also have experience with design and commissioning of wastewater treatment plant upgrades of similar scope and complexity within the last ten (10) years from the date of this solicitation. The Prime Consultant shall provide a list of members of the proposed Design Team, identifying the overall Design Manager(s), and the team leaders for key design specialties (process-liquid stream treatment, process – biosolids treatment, civil, structural, mechanical, electrical and instrumentation) and the specific role each one of them will perform. 3. The Prime Consultant shall have at least one (1) successfully designed, constructed and currently operating major new or upgraded wastewater treatment plant(s) of similar size and scope as in this solicitation in which the Prime Consultant has served as the designer within the past ten (10) years from the date of solicitation.
