Substation Equipment Q&A

Construction Documents for Segment #3

BUDC is soliciting proposals from design and engineering consulting firms to develop Construction Documents for Segment #3 and to support the grant / permitting process. The selected firm will need to evaluate design standards developed for the shoreline projects north and south of Segment #3 and determine/develop shoreline design requirements for this project. The intent of this project is to ‘fill in the gap’ between the shoreline projects to the north and south so the consultant should review reference documents for those projects and determine the scope which is required to bridge the two projects (including meeting their respective top of wall elevations, adjacent grading etc.).

Any questions regarding this RFP should be made in writing to Cristina Cordero at [email protected] no later than February 23, 2024, at 4:00 P.M. No requests for oral interpretations via the telephone will be accepted.
