Amendment 0004 to W912DS18B0014 is hereby posted. Please see attached.
Construct a one-story, 10,000 SF heated warehouse to replace the existing 5,200 SF temporary tent originally purchased to support the temporary mission to store uparmor items such as Humvee doors, 939 truck cabs and gunner protection kit (GPK) items, empty boxes, armor plate steel, and full boxes with shippable kits.
Watervliet Arsenal was given a new mission in 2005, to manufacturing complete replacement parts to put Armor on a truck or Humvee (GM Hummer). Watervliet Arsenal's current mission includes the continued support of the storage of uparmor items and is concentrated on 60MM, 81MM, and 120MM mortar sustainment and FMS mortar sustainment work. This warehouse would be used for staging area for short and long term storage of in process mortar material as well as M236 trailer storage and parts and the M284 rehab project. The present temporary storage tent does not provide acceptable secure storage for any components. If this warehouse is not provided it could severely compromise WVA's ability to support mortar sustainment work, in addition, WVA has very limited warehouse space, which has been reduced further by commercial tenant occupation as part of the Arsenal Business and Technology Partnership (ABTP).
The proposed warehouse will require that its concrete floor have a topping compound applied to it. The floor topping reduce dusting, improve longevity and improve safety as it will provide a non-slip surface. The AT/FP building consideration is significant due to the increase in mortar sustainment work that will be required.
A 5,200 SF soft sided tent was purchased in 2005 as a structure for a mission only to last two years. Due to limited and overcrowded warehouse space at WVA, the tent is still being fully utilized for mission storage. The tent is now 10 years old, and is deteriorating due to age and use beyond capacity.
Impact if not provided:
WVA will be forced to continue using the deteriorating, temporary structure, waste energy, and not be able to consolidate and improve the efficiency of its warehousing/manufacturing missions. In addition, the existing temporary tent cannot be used to securely store mortar components. If this warehouse is not provided it could severely compromise WVA's ability to support mortar sustainment work.
This procurement is being solicited as Small Business Set-aside. The contract will be awarded using the Lowest Bid method. The North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) code is 236220. The magnitude of construction for this project is $1,000,000 to $5,000,000. Plans and specifications for the subject project are estimated to be available in May or June 2018, with bid opening estimated in June or July 2018
