REQUEST FOR INFORMATION (RFI) Temporary Workforce Camp Facilities at Fort Greely, Alaska NAICS Code: 721310 Size Standard: $7.5M THIS IS NOT A REQUEST FOR PROPOSAL, REQUEST FOR QUOTE, OR INVITATION FOR BID. THERE WILL NOT BE A SOLICITATION, SPECIFICATIONS, OR DRAWINGS AVAILABLE AT THIS TIME. 1. Introduction: The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), Alaska District is issuing this RFI to obtain responses from members of the construction community interested in providing and operating temporary construction camp facilities in the vicinity of Fort Greely, Alaska. USACE intends to use the information provided for planning purposes and to help make strategic decisions regarding this potential procurement. USACE will not reimburse respondents for any expenses associated with responding to this RFI, though USACE sincerely appreciates respondents efforts and input. The USACE Alaska District may issue a Request for Proposals (RFP) at some point in the future, however, this RFI is not to be construed as a commitment by the Government, nor will the Government pay for any information provided. 2. Opportunity / Background: The Government is seeking industry input regarding the potential to provide camp facilities and operate the temporary construction camp facilities in the vicinity of Fort Greely, Alaska, potentially during the period of mid 2018 through 2021. Fort Greely is located approximately 100 miles southeast of Fairbanks, Alaska near Delta Junction and has a sub-arctic continental climate characterized by long cold winters and short mild summers. Temperature extremes can vary from a high of almost 100 degrees Fahrenheit in the summer to -50 degrees Fahrenheit in the winter. This potential construction camp requirement is still in the advanced planning stage; initial indications are that the camp must support a temporary construction and technical workforce population of approximately 150 to 200 persons during 2018 through 2021. The services would include providing a full camp to include kitchen/dining, laundry, and recreation modules in addition to the sleeping modules to accommodate 150-200 persons. It is assumed that the temporary construction camp would be of modular design, and that all of the facilities and utilities would efficiently accommodate sub-arctic conditions. The current planning strategy calls for the camp facilities to be located on cleared portion of Fort Greely within a designated partitioned area that is outside of the installations security boundaries. The camp would require the development of on-site utilities including potable water, sewerage, commercial power, and communications. Potable water would be provided by the development of a temporary well and a looped pipe distribution system designed and constructed for sub-arctic conditions, including pre-heat. The water system would be sized to support fire hydrants delivering the water flow rates and quantity required by fire code. Sewerage collection and treatment would be through pipe collection into an on-site septic system designed for the specific soil and temperature regimes found at the site. All onsite utility development would be accomplished through permit with applicable regulators. All relocatable facilities must be industry-standard structures as utilized in medium-sized temporary camps in sub-arctic environments and not custom-designed facilities tailored specifically for this program. They would require full Life/Safety Code Compliance including adequate egress and must meet site conditions, including thermal requirements and all loading requirements for conditions at Fort Greely. When placed in the operational location, the relocatable facilities would be founded upon a foundation system compatible with soil bearing capacities and the structural design of the relocatable assemblies. The use of gang latrine/showers within sleeping facilities would be acceptable. In addition, the use of separate centralized latrine/shower facilities would be acceptable. The latrine and shower capabilities are to support worker hygiene requirements with adequate shower, sink, and toilet and urinal fixtures to support a maximum field population of 350-PN. Water would be required to be heated to applicable use requirements by "on-demand" type appliances. Facilities would need to have adequate ventilation and lighting and would be required to be heated. For all temporary workforce camp facilities, wired smoke/fire detectors would be required with a fire alarm system compatible with the system used at Fort Greely. The Government is currently considering one contract for the fulfillment of this potential requirement: supply of modules and operation of the temporary workforce camp to include complementary services such as housekeeping, maintenance, utilities, security, food and laundry services. 3.
