City of Tacoma – Pre-RFQ – Progressive Design-Build Services for Puyallup Avenue Sewer Utility Replacement

Project Title: Progressive Design-Build Services for Puyallup Avenue Sewer Utility Replacement project

PROJECT INFORMATION: The City of Tacoma Environmental Services Department anticipates issuing an RFQ in June 2024 to select a Design-Build Team to provide progressive design-build services for the design and construction of new large diameter storm and wastewater mains. The City is seeking a PDB team with experience in similar utility installations and previous participation in design-build projects. The project includes open-cut deep installation of 2,000 LF of large diameter (up to 84”) storm pipe, 1,500 LF (up to 66”) wastewater pipe and removal of the existing Puyallup Ave bridge (approx. 300 LF) with replacement of a new roadway placed on fill with new retaining walls.

The scope also includes trenchless installation of pipe in two locations:
1) rehabilitation of 1,200 LF 60” diameter storm main
2) installation of 100LF 48” diameter wastewater main beneath Sound Transit Light Rail Line.
With an additional location potential using trenchless method for a crossing of I-705 existing underpass.
The following specialty services are also anticipated to be required: geotechnical, permitting (Sound Transit, WSDOT, etc.), trenchless, bridge design, cultural resources, and public outreach.

The planning level cost estimate for design and construction is $60,000,000.
