Solicitation No. EQ754-141656/A, Randle Reef Sediment
Remediation: Stage 1- Construction Engineering Services,
Hamilton Harbour, Hamilton, Ontario. 


The contaminated sediment targeted for remediation in this
project is located at Randle Reef along the south shore of
Hamilton Harbour in the vicinity of Piers 14, 15 and 16. The
project will be completed in three distinct stages:

Stage I - Construction of a marine double wall - the Engineered
Confinement Facility (ECF) enclosure and a wharf at Pier 15.
This includes dredging of contaminated sediments from between
the walls and backfilling with clean rock fill.

Stage II - Dredging of contaminated sediments and depositing
them within the ECF up to water level.  Other remediation areas
will be capped using both thin layer capping and isolation
capping techniques.

Stage III - ECF sediment dewatering, capping above water level
and consolidating of contaminated sediments within the ECF
structure with engineered materials (such as stone, sand,
geotextiles, geomembranes, pipes, asphalt etc).

Under this RFP, PWGSC, on behalf of Environment Canada, intends
to procure Civil Engineering services for Construction
Supervision of Stage I  of the project only.

Firms cannot be awarded a Construction Contract for a Stage if
they have been awarded the Construction Engineering Services
Contract for the same Stage. Firms may not be awarded the
Construction Engineering Services Contract for a Stage if they
have been awarded the Construction Contract for that Stage. 
For example, the successful Construction Engineering Services
Proponent will be precluded from bidding on the Stage 1
Construction Contract.  However, the successful Construction
Engineering Services Proponent for Stage 1 will not be precluded
from submitting a proposal for the Stage 2 and 3 Construction
Engineering Services Contract. Further, the successful Stage 1
Construction Engineering Services Proponent will not be
precluded from bidding on the Stage 2 or Stage 3 Construction
Contracts unless they are the successful Consultant on the Stage
2 and 3 Construction Engineering Services Contract.


This Request for Proposal (RFP) is a One-Phase process,
Proponents responding to this RFP are requested to submit only
one proposal. Proposals are to cover the achievements of
proponents, sub-consultants and specialist on projects;
achievements of key Personnel on projects; understanding of the
project; management of services and construction supervision
philosophy and pricing. The Proponent whose responsive proposal
achieves the highest total score is the first entity that the
PWGSC Evaluation Board will recommend be approached in order to
finalize details of an agreement for the provision of the
required services.

The purpose is to select the highest ranked experienced firm of
consultants, sub-consultants and specialists to provide full
engineering services.
