Section II, Summary of the Scope of Work: Provide the necessary labor, material, equipment and qualified supervision to design and construct a fully functional Photovoltaic Solar System and a Solar Thermal Hot Water System for the Michael E DeBakey VA Medical Center, located at 2002 Holcombe Blvd., Houston, Texas, 77030. The Photovoltaic Solar System and Thermal Hot Water System are to consist of the following: " Base Item: Canopy structures are to shade parking spaces in Parking Lots I and J. Said installation providing an estimated 2 MW of power (DC Wattage). Solar panels to be fixed and installed at a 5 degree tilt, not less than twelve (12) feet above the existing parking lot surface. Degree of azimuth to be determined by contractor for maximum UV exposure. The proposed canopy structure shall be configured to maximize all available parking lot space, to include aisle ways. " Option Item: Canopy structures are to shade parking spaces in Parking Lots N, P and R; said installation providing an estimated 3 MW of power (DC Wattage). Solar panels to be fixed and installed at a 5 degree tilt, not less than twelve (12) feet above the existing parking lot surface. Degree of azimuth to be determined by contractor for maximum UV exposure. The proposed canopy structure shall be configured to maximize all available parking lot space, to include aisle ways. " Option Item: Solar Thermal Hot Water System. The Solar Thermal Hot Water System shall include approximately 40 (4' X 8') Flat Plate collectors, and installed at an approximate 30 degree tilt. The area of installation is estimated to be 2500 square feet. The total thermal output of the system is estimated at 250.6 MMBtu annually. The Thermal Hot Water System is to supplement the heating of two 25,000 gallon patient therapeutic pools. Work includes all structural elements, concrete placement, grounding / bonding, lightning protection, DC / AC electrical distribution, lighting under canopies, peripheral lighting, grading, trenching, asphalt repair / replacement, landscaping / irrigation repair, relocation of security cameras impacted by the canopy installation, connection to therapy pool water and filtration system and the installation and interconnection of a complete Photovoltaic Solar System and Thermal Hot Water System. Drawings, standard details and Specifications shall be completed and submitted to the VA for approval prior to starting the work. The VA's Master Specifications and standard details can be found at the Technical Information Library at www.cfm.va.gov. The Contractor shall provide a PV system installation that will aesthetically match the surrounding buildings, structures and landscape and minimize any negative visual impact. Contractor shall provide proposed designs to VA for approval. Contractors shall submit photo renditions of the proposed design with design submittals. In this design-build scenario the Contractor is solely responsible for determining the techniques, means, methods, and materials for installation to meet the requirements of this contract. All work will comply with the current OSHA Construction Regulations 29 CFR 1926, all applicable VA Design Guides / Details, and any applicable local code requirements. Parking at the VA Medical Center is at a premium, to the extent that NO on-site or off-site temporary parking is available. Installation of the canopy structures, installation of PV Modules, and related work shall be accomplished during other than normal working hours. Prosecution of the work will have to be accomplished in multiple phases. Coordination of effort (phasing of the work) with the VA Medical Center is absolute. Below are the construction phasing parameters applicable to this project: The work shall be performed between the hours of 6:00 pm and 6:00 am, Monday through Friday. The contractor may also work weekends with advance notification to the Contracting Officers Representative and in coordination with the medical center. The work will be picked up thirty (30) minutes prior to the end of each shift to allow for staff, visitor and patient parking during normal working hours. A laydown / fabrication area will be available to the contractor for his exclusive use and approximately ten (10) parking spaces in each lot ( area of work ) will be dedicated to the contractor as a mini laydown / fabrication space immediately adjacent the work. Coordination with the COR and Medical Center is imperative. The work will be performed in multiple phases, requiring the submission and approval of a construction phasing schedule, depicting how the work will be prosecuted from lot to lot. Schedule shall conform to the requirement of Specification Section 01 32 16.17 CPM Schedule (Small Projects-Design Build). Schedule to be approved prior to the start of work.
