NATIONAL CEMETERY OF THE ALLEGHENIES
PHASE III GRAVESITE DEVELOPMENT; PROJECT No. 925CM2006
PRE-SOLICITATION STATEMENT OF WORK
This procurement is a 100% Total Set-Aside for Small Business. This is first stage of the forthcoming Request for Proposal (RFP) for a construction contract for the expansion of the National Cemetery of the Alleghenies, Bridgeville PA.
The purpose of this project is to enable an existing national cemetery to continue to provide burial services for eligible veterans in southwestern Pennsylvania. Located in Washington County, just south of Pittsburgh, the National Cemetery of the Alleghenies serves Veterans of the greater Pittsburgh metropolitan area, northwestern West Virginia, and southeastern Ohio. This proposed development will provide an additional 10 years of continued burial service to an estimated Veteran population of approximately 258,300 who has been served by this national cemetery since it opened in August 2005. This project will provide an additional 10-year gravesite inventory for all burial options until FY 2031.
In accordance with the master plan for the entire 292-acre site, this project will develop approximately 40 acres of the 202 undeveloped acres remaining at the National Cemetery of the Alleghenies.
This project will comprise the third construction phase of cemetery development, and will primarily include the construction of additional burial facilities intended to provide 10 years of service on existing, undeveloped land. The remainder of the site will be developed in future 10-year phased projects. Since this is an existing cemetery, only those facilities and infrastructure elements necessary to support the added maintenance, operations, and burial capacity for approximately 10 years will comprise this phase of construction. This investment will develop approximately 40 acres of undeveloped land to provide approximately 12,300 gravesites, including both casket and cremation sites in new burial sections. Also included in this project will be the cemetery expansion into the southern cemetery parcel bisected by the state-owned Morgan Road. While the expansion into this area will require a nominal new entrance feature, grade separated connector drive, access roads, irrigation, signage and furnishings, no structures are planned for this area within this project. This grade separated connector drive will be used by staff, maintenance personnel, and visitors to safely access the southern burial sections across Morgan Road. Within the developed northern acreage, this project will provide for irrigation improvements, gravesite expansion areas (including access roads and visitor amenities). Since the cemetery is less than 15 years old, only nominal repairs/ improvements/ security enhancements will be performed to existing cemetery buildings. As needed, unsuitable rock/coal will be excavated from burial areas and removed from the cemetery. This project will also include an evaluation of the existing structures and accomplish and retrofit/incorporate Guiding Principles for High Performance and Sustainable Buildings MOU and Renewable Energy Initiatives as required. Additionally, any FCA condition D or F corrections will be incorporated onto this project.
The approximate project duration will be 1,274 calendar days from the Notice to Proceed. The estimated magnitude for this project is between $20,000,000 and $50,000,000. At this time, no solicitation exists.
