The new facilities include two (2) restroom buildings, one (1) single level concession and restroom building and one (1) two story concession and restroom building. Additional site improvements include the construction of 24 shade structures, trash enclosure and installation of site utilities to support the new buildings. In addition to the construction of the new facilities the demolition and removal of the existing six (6) ELOO buildings and connecting infrastructure is also required.
As this Project is being constructed within an active park, strict work hours have been established to minimize public interaction. Refer to Specification 011000 – Summary of Work for these restrictions.
The costs associated with the removal of any and all unsuitable soils and/or rock encountered below subgrade (as defined in Specification 312000), during the construction of this project shall be borne by the County. The County requests that the Contractor provide unit prices for unsuitable soils removal and rock removal. Unit Prices shall include the import of suitable material as needed to replace those quantities removed (It shall be assumed that suitable material will be procured from an off-site source). Unit prices shall be included on the Pricing Page of the Bid, and shall be multiplied times an assumed quantity provided by the County for an extended price. The extended price shall be carried by the County as an Owner’s Allowance in the final Contract Price and will be paid to the Contractor on a “per occurrence” basis, with any remaining allowance(s) being returned to the County upon completion of the project. This will apply to all excavations with the only exception being Drilling Activities (i.e. borings, geothermal wells, etc.). In these specific instances the Contractor should assume that rock will be encountered and price the drilling accordingly as part of their Base Bid Cost. Refer to Specification 312000 for soil classification and responsibility for all unsuitable soils and/or rock encountered above subgrade.
Furthermore, the Contractor will be responsible for the removal of all vegetation as required by the Contract Documents, to include, haul-off and disposal.
