The Springfield Water and Sewer Commission (Owner) invites General Contractor (GC) and Subcontractor (SC) firms to attend an informational session concerning its upcoming West Parish Water Treatment Plant project (Project).                                                                                                                                                               

The project includes partial demolition of existing water treatment plant infrastructure and construction of a new 65-mgd water treatment plant. The new water treatment plant includes dissolved air flotation (DAF), filtration, raw and treated water conveyance, chemical storage and feed equipment, a dewatering facility, new electrical feed, an emergency generator, workshop, and administrative area. The 22,100 sf administrative area includes a laboratory, offices, locker rooms, breakrooms and other administrative spaces. The project site will remain an operational water treatment plant during construction and includes site improvements for access, parking, and stormwater management. The site of the Project is located on the existing West Parish Filters site at 1515 Granville Road, Westfield, Massachusetts. The Owner anticipates work on the project will commence in the second quarter of 2024 and construction will be completed within four years from the date of issuance of the notice to proceed to the GC.                                                                          

The Owner intends to conduct a Request for Qualifications (RFQ) process to prequalify GC and SC firms to bid on the Project as provided in M.G.L. c. 149, §44D½ and §44D3/4. The RFQ will be the first phase of a two-phase Request for Qualifications (RFQ) process for the Project during which the Owner will select respondents it deems to be prequalified in accordance with the criteria set forth in the RFQ. During the second phase of the RFQ process, the prequalified respondents will be invited to submit bids and filed sub-bids in response to an RFQ which the Owner anticipates will  be issued in the first quarter of 2024. Only GC and SC firms prequalified for the Project in the first phase of the RFQ process will be permitted to submit bids and filed sub-bids.                                                            

At the time a GC firm submits its Statement of Qualifications (SOQ), it must have a DCAMM Certification in the Contractor Category “Sewage and Water Treatment Plants” with a single limit greater than the $260,000,000 estimated construction cost. At the time an SC firm submits its Statement of Qualifications (SOQ) it must have a DCAMM Certification in the particular trade or trades for which it intends to submit a filed sub-bid. All GC and SC firms that are interested in potentially submitting an SOQ on the Project are strongly encouraged to initiate the DCAMM certification process as soon as possible. Firms considering submitting SOQ’s should review applicable DCAMM requirements at https://dcamm.gob2g.com/Default.asp. The Owner anticipates the RFQ to be issued in the third quarter of 2023. Only GC and SC firms that are appropriately DCAMM certified will be considered for prequalification.                                                                                                                                                                                         

Two in-person informational sessions will be held at the site of the Project on May 10, 2023 and June 9, 2023 at 10:00 a.m. A virtual session will be conducted on May 24, 2023 at 10:00 a.m. Virtual meeting access information will be provided to those GC and SC firms that RSVP for the virtual session.                                                                       

GC and SC firms that are interested in attending one of the three informational sessions must RSVP to the Owner’s Chief Procurement Officer, Theo G. Theocles, Esq., Director of Legal Affairs/CPO by email at theo.theocles@waterandsewer.org no later than three (3) business days prior to the session being attended. GC and SC firms that are interested in attending one of the two in-person informational sessions are asked to carpool since available parking at the site of the Project is currently limited.                                                                                                                                         

Further information regarding the specifics of the Project and the upcoming RFQ process will be provided at each informational session. Please refer to https://waterandsewer.org/new-water-plant for additional information about the Project.

This Request for Qualifications (RFQ) is the first part of a two-step Request for Proposals (RFP) process as provided in MGL Chapter 149, Section 44D3/4 inclusive, which shall be incorporated herein by reference. Based on the SOQs received in this first step, the Commission will select respondents it deems to be prequalified in accordance with the criteria set forth in the RFQ. In the second step, the prequalified respondents will be invited to submit bids in response to a Request for Bids (RFB) which the Commission anticipates being issued on or around February 9, 2024.

SOQs must conform to the requirements set forth in the RFQ. The complete RFQ, including directions, will be available Wednesday, October 18, 2023 and will be distributed upon email request to Theo.Theocles@waterandsewer.org. A register of all respondents’ names will be publicly available, but SOQs will be read and evaluated privately.

Direct any questions by e-mail only to Theo Theocles at Theo.Theocles@waterandsewer.org and cc Marc Morin at MMorin@hazenandsawyer.com before Wednesday, November 1, 2023 at 4:00 PM (EST).
