Aircraft Apron Airfield Site Improvements
Department of the Army, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers | Published November 21, 2017 - Deadline January 18, 2018
The Norfolk District, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is contemplating a Firm Fixed Price, Design-Bid-Build construction contract for the construction of aircraft apron and airfield site improvements.
Project Description: Design-Bid-Build construction of the aircraft apron and airfield site improvements (phase 1) located at Ft. Eustis, Newport News, Virginia. The work includes development of the site for future Operations Facilities (phase 2) and construction of hangar (phase 3). The phase 1 work effort includes constructing site supporting infrastructure, airfield apron, Taxiway Bridge, apron and taxiway lighting, parking lots, on-site circulation drives, 2 central electric buildings with generators, site utilities, an entry control facility, a fire pump house and storage tanks, high pressure fire water supply lines, vehicle and equipment storage canopies and garage building. In addition, the project facilitates relocation of existing customer facilities from the primary work site. These facilities include an urban assault course station, a sling load training area, and a training road turn-around. The taxiway bridge is approximately 450 feet in length over wetlands and will connect to existing airfield runway to the new aircraft apron. The project will install perimeter security fencing, on-site electric, communications, water, sewer, and gas distribution and/or collection lines that will tie into utilities being constructed to the project site by others. It is anticipated that construction of the phase 2 will overlap phase 1 construction by approximately 180 days. During the period of potential overlap the phase 1 contractor will retain the right of way for shared access to the project site; however, coordination will be required due to the single project entrance and common laydown areas. See attached plans (volumes 1-3) and specifications (Parts 1-3) and Geotechnical report for additional information.
This is a remote site location, vicinity and impact to wetlands, and site security restrictions. There are construction equipment limits due to project site in vicinity of airfield, noise limitation, limited laydown area, and other limitations. The contractor shall be responsible for acquisition of the tidal wetland credits required for mitigation of project impacts. The project will impact 14,200 square feet of tidal wetlands which will require mitigation at a ratio of 1:1. The credits shall be purchased from an approved wetland mitigation bank within the service area that has tidal wetland credits available. If sufficient credits are not available at an approved wetland mitigation bank, any remaining credits must be mitigated through payment into the Virginia Aquatic Resources Trust Fund (VARTF).
The work performed under this project will tie directly into other anticipated follow on projects to be awarded separately, this includes construction of aviation hangars, aviation shops, admin space, and unit operations building type facilities.This project is being solicited as unrestricted best value procurement process in accordance with FAR Part 15. The contracting officer will award a firm fixed price contract to the responsible offeror in accordance with FAR 9.1, whose proposal conforms to the solicitation, is fair and reasonable, and offers the best overall value to the Government.
