Description: Remove Steamship "NOBSKA" from Dry Dock 1, Boston National Historical Park, Charlestown Navy Yard, Boston, Massachusetts. Solicitation Number N1720040511. This project includes demolition, dismantlement and removal of the derelict steel coastal steamship, SS Nobska from Dry Dock 1 in the Charlestown Navy Yard. The demolition process will involve the removal of hazardous materials from the Nobska as well as dismantling and recycling steel components of the ship. The demolition process will involve using torches to cut up the ship while it is in dry dock. Disposal of all non recyclable components such as timber decks and roofing materials will be at an approved, licensed landfill. The Nobska is a 210-foot coastal steamer that was placed in Dry Dock in 1997 under a cooperative agreement to restore the ship so it could be placed back in service. Work on the ship ceased due to lack of funding at such a stage that the ship will no longer float and has fallen into a state of neglect and disrepair. Dry Dock 1 can not be used as long as the Nobska occupies the dry dock. It is urgent that the dry dock be available to the USS Constitution at Boston National Historical Park. Alternatives to demolition and dismantling the SS Nobska will also be considered. Parties must be able to demonstrate financial and technical ability to undertake the intact removal within the same time frame as established for removal by dismantling. In addition, should such a proposal be acceptable, the proposer will be required to enter into a preservation agreement with the Massachusetts State Historical Preservation Officer as a part of the terms of transfer of ownership from the National Park Service to the proposer. Evaluation factors for both award for demolition and, award for relocation are included in Section M of solicitation. The National Park Service anticipates entering into a firm fixed-price contract as a result of this solicitation. There is no set aside for this solicitation and as such is open to all concerns regardless of size. The NAICS code for this project is 488330 with a small business size standard of $6.0 million.
