The Mobile District Corps of Engineers has a need for construction of a reinforced concrete wall at three locations immediately downstream of the Unit 4 intake bulkhead at West Point Power House, West Point, Georgia. Each wall is 12'-6" thick, 17' long, and 33' tall. The wall will be tied to the existing powerhouse structure with steel dowels and two water-stops will be installed to insure water tightness. During construction the temperature of the concrete at the time of placement will not be able to exceed 70 degrees (mass concrete pour). Additional challenges include the physical location of these walls and the limited access for construction materials. Two water leaks in the existing west intake concrete bulkhead joint will require piping to discharge the water. The rate of leakage is calculated to be approximately 70 to 90 gallons per minute. No debris of any kind will be allowed to be disposed of in the draft tubes during construction. In order to access Unit 4 intake and redefine the workspace from confined to open, the contractor must remove two pre-stressed double tees that are roughly 8 feet wide by 40 feet long. The contractor shall be responsible for removing the double tees and the construction and subsequent removal of a temporary secondary means of egress. The existing overhead crane in the powerhouse will be available to move construction materials in and out of the Unit 4 cavity. The crane will be operated by government personnel. The contractor shall coordinate the need for the crane and associated logistics with the powerhouse supervisor at least two days prior to the need. Any powerhouse project or maintenance activity requiring the crane takes precedence over the contractor's use of the crane and cannot be used as the basis of a claim. It is anticipated that a firm-fixed price contract will be awarded based on FAR Part 15 "best value" procedures.
