The City of Altamonte Springs is seeking bids over the next month for professional engineering services related to construction, engineering and inspection for the I-4 Ultimate utility relocations, and other potential projects.
The city published a Request for Proposals (RFP) on Tuesday that details its needs for a contractor to provide Construction, Engineering and Inspection (CEI) Services for the utility adjustments and relocations related to I-4 expansion.
The I-4 Ultimate project is 21 miles in length and includes many improvements to both I-4 and adjacent roadways that require multiple utility adjustments and relocations to Altamonte Springs' utility system.
The inspection staff must be under the direct supervision of a registered professional engineer. I-4 Ultimate CEI Services are projected at a value of $700,000.
The contract may also include full-time or part-time CEI services for additional projects that are in the city's Capital Improvements program, which include the S.R. 436 east pedestrian underpass, the Northlake Boulevard corridor improvements, the Amanda Street roadway project, Orange Avenue corridor improvements, the Spring Lake Road Trail, and the SunRail to Seminole Wekiva Trail multi-use corridor.
No pre-proposal conference has been scheduled by the city, and questions regarding the RFP can be submitted up to 4:30 p.m. on Jan. 4.
RFP submissions are due to the city's Procurement Division by 11 a.m. on Jan. 11. Documents related to RFP no. 17-020-BK can be found at the city's solicitation postings website.
The city estimates to have a short list of applicants made by Jan. 23, presentations for those firms scheduled on Jan. 30, an "Intent to Award" message posted Feb. 2, and contract negotiations to run Feb. 2-20.
