Contractors should describe the nature and extent of prior teaming experience with the proposed subcontractors. 1. Demonstrated experience to handle a variety of civil engineering, Hydrographic surveying, geodetic surveying, aerial surveying and topographic surveying work relating to maintenance and new work dredging of river, harbor and beach nourishment projects 2. Demonstrated experience in the application of the Dredged Material Research Program results in the design and implementation of dredging projects and long term dredge material placement solutions. 3. Must show the capacity of performing extensive hydrographic, geodetic, boundary, and topographic surveys and producing charts and design documents meeting US Army Corps of Engineers criteria. 4. Demonstrated experience and capability to perform bathymetry (multi-beam and single beam) and side scan sonar surveys that meet Corps of Engineers criteria using an automated hydrographic survey system in depths ranging from 0 feet to greater than 60 feet in protected and unprotected waters such as the Atlantic Ocean and Chesapeake Bay.
