All bidders shall submit, in a separate, sealed envelope, within two working hours of the bid opening time,
on the bid date, a completed First-Tier Subcontractor Disclosure Form in compliance with ORS 279C.370.
In general, the elements of work include, but are not limited to:
Construction of building additions on both Midway and Siuslaw pump stations as shown on architectural
and engineering plans provided as Exhibit F. Each pump station is engineered and designed in preparation
for the arrival of two new, permanent generators as noted in site details attached. Contractor shall construct
both locations as designed, shall provide all necessary materials (unless otherwise noted) and shall perform
electrical work to accommodate noted generator specs.
Electrical scope of work for each pump station shall include:
1. Ensure all new conduit is placed in the correct location to receive new generator, including
2. Coordinate existing power service to be placed underground and move electrical meter;
3. Supply and install all new light fixtures, interior and exterior;
4. Install all ventilation louvers pertaining to generator.
Electrical scope of work at Midway pump station shall include:
1. 1-4 listed above;
2. Move existing pump leads to avoid new structure.
Maintaining pump station operation during installation of the new onsite generator system and building is
critical. Therefore, the Consultant shall develop a detailed construction sequence of work. The construction
sequence of work will address the down time that can be accommodated or the need for the Contractor to
provide temporary power (generator) to keep the pump station in operation. Responsive bidders will
demonstrate an understanding of the intricacies of performing construction on functioning wastewater
pump/lift stations and related critical infrastructure.
