Small Business Set-Aside
The Bureau of Reclamation (Reclamation) has a requirement to design, fabricate, deliver, and install seven metal shade canopies over the Hoover Dam Visitor Center Escalator. Metal shade canopies shall be customized to fit the site each with a freestanding monopole-type design. Work is located in the vicinity of Hoover Dam and Powerplant, approximately 9 miles east of Boulder City, Nevada and 31 miles southeast of Las Vegas, Nevada (Clark County). The site is located adjacent to the highway bridge at the Hoover Dam Visitor Center on NV S.R.172 (old Hwy 93) in Clark County, Nevada. NV S.R. 172 passes through the site and is managed and maintained by the Nevada Department of Traffic (NDOT). The approximate elevation at the site ranges from 1,205 feet at the bottom of the escalator to 1,240 feet at the top of the escalator. The principal components of the work to be performed shall be to design, fabricate, deliver, and install (Turn-Key) multiple, custom, freestanding, durable, metal shade canopies including bolted steel base connections for the monopole. There is an existing water feature that runs parallel to and between the escalators which the monopoles shall be anchored to. The steel monopole shall be a welded rectangular metal tube support framing. Each monopole shall be anchored inside the water feature to a steel cross member which is anchored (bolted) inside both vertical sides of the water feature by the use of steel plates and expansion anchors. The bottom steel cross member should not touch the base of the water feature to allow for proper drainage. The monopole shall be designed to be removable. Excavation below the water feature is not anticipated. Installation at the site will take place after business hours (7 pm - 7 am) to avoid impacts to the visitors. Site must be cleaned after each shift to remove any debris, materials, and tools. A staging area approximately one (1) mile away from the work site will be provided for material storage. Direct access for vehicles or large equipment to the escalators is not available. The highway bridge (N.V. S.R. 172) approximately 70 feet from site must be used for any cranes or large equipment. As this is a state highway, traffic control will be required and is a contractor responsibility. Overhead powerlines are above the site; which will require proper grounding of equipment and other safety protocols. The anticipated duration of work is 6 months which includes the design, fabrication, delivery, and installation as well as the necessary time for Reclamation's review, coordination and comments on the required submittals. This requirement is being solicited as Full and Open Competition. North American Industry Classification (NAICS Code) is 238190 Other Foundation, Structure and Building Exterior Contractors. The Small Business Size Standard for this NAICS is $14.0 million. The magnitude of this construction project is estimated to be between $250,000.00 and $500,000.00.
