Title  :   DESIGN OF UPGRADES FOR WATER DISTRIBUTION AND SANITARY SEWAGE COLLECTION AND TRANSMISSION SYSTEMS
 
Opening Date  : 5/19/2014
 
Opening Time  : 03:30 PM
 
Announcement  Info  :   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 engineering services will be required for the design of upgrades for water distribution and sanitary sewage collection and transmission systems for Miami-Dade Water and Sewer Department. WASD is the primary provider of water and wastewater services to Miami-Dade County which serves a population of almost 2.3 million, making it one of the largest water and wastewater utilities in the United States. WASD owns and maintains approximately 5,800 miles of water distribution and transmission pipelines and 4,100 miles of wastewater collection and transmission pipelines. The water system infrastructure averages approximately 45 years with the oldest pipes in the system dating back to the mid 1920’s. Similarly, the wastewater infrastructure averages 55 years with the oldest pipes in the system dating back to the 1930’s. WASD is seeking engineering services for utility design, including planning, permitting assistance and design services during construction for system upgrades to the water and sewer pipelines. The scope of services consists of complete design services, which will include but is not limited to, performing preliminary route analysis, site investigations, surveying, geotechnical services, maintenance of traffic plans, hydraulic analysis, coordination with other utilities, coordination with other municipalities and the public, preparation of design reports, preparation of drawings, specifications and contract documents, preparation of design-build criteria packages, permitting and post design assistance during the procurement and construction phases. Engineering support during construction is anticipated to include, but is not limited to, periodic site inspections and attendance at meetings. Support will also require the review of: shop drawings, requests for information, potential claims and change orders, contract schedules, schedule of values and as-built drawings, among others, as needed. Project coordination services are anticipated to include, but are not limited to, establishing a plan to implement projects, establish and track project schedules, budgets and deadlines, prepare status reports and attend meetings as requested by WASD. Some of the anticipated future pipeline design needs include, but are not limited to, the following: Water: 1. Small diameter water main replacement: There is approximately 1,000 miles of small diameter (4-inch and less) water distribution mains in Miami-Dade County which should be replaced. As a point of reference, the proposed Shenandoah Neighborhood Design-Build Project, which is currently being managed in-house, has approximately 15 miles of pipe replacement. Moving forward a more aggressive small diameter water main replacement program is needed to replace these undersized mains in a reasonable time frame. 2. Water Master Plan Projects which are generally larger than 24-inch diameter transmission mains. 3. Projects which will be identified by the Comprehensive Infrastructure Assessment and Replacement Program (IAARP) for water transmission and distribution mains. Sewer: 1. Wastewater Master Plan Projects which are generally larger than 24-inch diameter transmission mains. 2. Projects identified to relieve sewer capacity issues due to regional development or re-development, such as the Doral force main and Brickell Basin force main projects. 3. Projects which will be identified by the Comprehensive IAARP for wastewater collection and transmission mains. Two (2) Non-Exclusive Professional Services Agreements will be awarded under this solicitation. Maximum compensation for each Agreement exclusive of contingency is $5,000,000 for an effective term of five (5) years with two (2) two-year (2) options to renew. Note that no minimum amount of work or compensation is guaranteed under this Agreement. Furthermore, the two (2) two-year options to renew are based solely on the approval of the County Mayor or County Mayor’s designee. Experience and Qualifications: 1. The Prime Consultant should demonstrate their successful experience with the planning, design, specifications and contract development, permitting and post design services during procurement and construction of various types of pipe materials including; polyvinyl chloride, high density polyethylene, concrete pressure pipe, ductile iron and various types of pipe installation. 2. The Prime Consultant should also demonstrate their successful design experience with large diameter pipelines (36-inch and greater). The Prime Consultant team should demonstrate their successful design experience with both micro-tunneling and horizontal directional drilling, with the Prime providing the experience in at least one (1) project of the aforementioned trenchless technologies. The successful experience on the above items should be demonstrated within the last ten (10) years prior to 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 the key design specialties. 3.
