    Solicitation No. EQ754-141656/A, Randle Reef Sediment
    Remediation: Stage 1- Construction Engineering Services,
    Hamilton Harbour, Hamilton, Ontario. 
    The contaminated sediment targeted for remediation in this
    project is located at Randle Reef along the south shore of
    Hamilton Harbour in the vicinity of Piers 14, 15 and 16. The
    project will be completed in three distinct stages:
    Stage I - Construction of a marine double wall - the Engineered
    Confinement Facility (ECF) enclosure and a wharf at Pier 15.
    This includes dredging of contaminated sediments from between
    the walls and backfilling with clean rock fill.
    Stage II - Dredging of contaminated sediments and depositing
    them within the ECF up to water level.  Other remediation areas
    will be capped using both thin layer capping and isolation
    capping techniques.
    Stage III - ECF sediment dewatering, capping above water level
    and consolidating of contaminated sediments within the ECF
    structure with engineered materials (such as stone, sand,
    geotextiles, geomembranes, pipes, asphalt etc).
    Under this RFP, PWGSC, on behalf of Environment Canada, intends
    to procure Civil Engineering services for Construction
    Supervision of Stage I  of the project only.
    Firms cannot be awarded a Construction Contract for a Stage if
    they have been awarded the Construction Engineering Services
    Contract for the same Stage. Firms may not be awarded the
    Construction Engineering Services Contract for a Stage if they
    have been awarded the Construction Contract for that Stage. 
    For example, the successful Construction Engineering Services
    Proponent will be precluded from bidding on the Stage 1
    Construction Contract.  However, the successful Construction
    Engineering Services Proponent for Stage 1 will not be precluded
    from submitting a proposal for the Stage 2 and 3 Construction
    Engineering Services Contract. Further, the successful Stage 1
    Construction Engineering Services Proponent will not be
    precluded from bidding on the Stage 2 or Stage 3 Construction
    Contracts unless they are the successful Consultant on the Stage
    2 and 3 Construction Engineering Services Contract.
