BACKGROUND AND INFORMATION FOR CONSTRUCTION CONTRACT

The Watervliet Arsenal, located in Watervliet, New York (WVA), is the United States' oldest, continuously operating, cannon manufacturing facility. The WVA consists of two contiguous areas that comprise a total land area of 140 acres.

The New York District, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (District) is preparing plans and specifications for the repair of the WVA Chrome Plating Facility. The repaired Chrome Plating Facility will maintain current and future missions of the WVA.

The estimated construction magnitude cost is between $25 and $100 million. Award is projected in February 2021.

The description of the Chrome Plating Facility Repair Project is as follows:

The WVA operates a chromium plating facility as part of the Main Manufacturing Area (MMA) located in Watervliet, New York. The facility was constructed in the late 1970s and became operational in 1980s.

This project entails the rehabilitation of this large tube plating area used for hard chromium plating of medium and large tubes ranging from six to ten inches in diameter and varying in length up to forty feet long.

Within the system used for tube plating includes several tanks associated with rinsing, electro-polishing and cleaning, as well as all associated mechanical, electrical, plumbing, control, and air scrubber exhaust systems which are degrading from time and use. The intent of this project is to mitigate the current conditions found during an assessment where several of these systems were deemed at the point of critical failure. In turn, a 100% design exercise was conducted to provide the needed plans, specifications and phasing in order to correct know deficiencies. Disciplines required to complete this project are as follows but not limited to: MEP, Environmental (hazardous materials), and Structural. Due to the critical nature to this facility and its association to the manufacturing production within the WVA, phasing to minimize shut down time is a key factor.

Responses to this Sources Sought will be used by the Government for market analysis only, as an aid in its making of the appropriate acquisition decision such as; use of a small business set aside or a small business set-aside within a specific socio-economic category or full and open competition.

This design-bid-build project is planned for advertisement starting in December 2020 with an award mid February 2021.

Contract duration will be approximately 720 calendar days.
