Durrance Lake Dam Upgrade Design

RFP No. 18-1960R

Instructions to Proponents


The Capital Regional District (“CRD”) invites detailed proposals from consultants (the "Proponents") in strict accordance with these Proposal Documents (CRD, RFP No. 18-1960R).  The proposals will be evaluated for the selection of a consultant (or consultants) with the intent to enter into a contract (the “Contract”) to provide the services described in Appendix “A” and summarized below.

The CRD is issuing an RFP seeking engineering services to design, in consultation with consultants working on an environmental assessment of the lake and surrounding lands, upgrades to the Durrance Lake Dam to meet BC Dam Safety Regulations and the 2013 Canadian Dam Safety Association (CDA) Dam Safety Guidelines. The consultant will be required to assess three potential reservoir operating level options.  For each of the three options, the consultant must provide a conceptual design and class D construction cost estimate.  In consultation with the CRD, the consultant must then identify a preferred reservoir operating level and develop a tender ready design for the preferred option, including a Class A construction cost estimate construction drawings, contract specifications and a construction environmental management plan.

A Contract will not necessarily result from this Request for Proposal (“RFP”).
