Underwater Repairs, Stamford Hurricane Barrier Pre-Solicitation Notice

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, New England District, is issuing a set aside solicitation for certified small business contractors for underwater repairs at Stamford Hurricane Barrier. The NAICS code for this procurement is 238990. The project is planned to be issued in May 2018, and will be set aside for Small Businesses. The project will occur in the fall of 2018 and is expected to take about four months, including submittal approval. The estimated magnitude of this project is between $100,000 and $250,000.

This amendment is issued to reply to a Request for Information (RFI).

This project consists of completing the following tasks:

* Removal of existing timber from gate pedestals

* Installation of new composite timbers

* Installation of steel cable along bottom attached at each abutment.

* Removal of abandoned hatch bolts (approx. 16) and replacement of 1 hinge bolt

The Stamford Hurricane Barrier is composed of an earthen dike and a 90 foot navigation gate. When in the down or "open" position, the navigation gate rests on eight, 7 foot long timbers founded on concrete pedestals. Work will likely require the temporary displacement of sediment from around gate pedestals. Work on the pedestals will require the gate to be up, in the "closed" position. Gate will be closed daily during construction with operation of the gate dependent on tides and commercial traffic. Contractor will be required to remove work barge and any other obstructions from the navigation channel at the conclusion of work each day.

Dive work will be conducted via surface-supplied air, and all activities MUST be conducted in accordance with all requirements listed in the most current version of EM-385-1-1. Perspective bidders should be aware of certification and dive plan submittal requirements detailed in EM-385-1-1, Section 30.

Please note this solicitation is set aside for certified small businesses. This is not a request for bids at this time; the solicitation requirements and contract documents to include instructions for submission and the response date will be available on or about May 2018.

Neither telephonic, mailed nor faxed requests for hard copies of this solicitation will be accepted. The solicitation will only be available online; in order to download the solicitation offerors must access the Federal Business Opportunities website (www.fbo.gov). Amendments, if any, to the solicitation will be made available at the http:/www/fbo.gov website.

Registrants are responsible for the accuracy of the information on the FedBizOps Registration List. All responsible sources may submit a bid which shall be considered by the New England District. Additional questions may be emailed to the Contract Specialist at Lennie.K.Mattis@usace.army.mil.
