RFP – HVAC System Improvements at DPW

INTRODUCTION TO PROJECT

The City of Muskegon is seeking proposals from interested consulting engineers to provide inspection, review of facilities, and design related to improvements of the HVAC system at the City’s DPW building located at 1350 E Keating.

Over the years, the HVAC system at DPW has been modified several times. The city has been dealing with poor heating and cooling issues for some time. The City would like a review of our current system; along with known problems and issues; and a recommended solution, including design, size and layout of plumbing, size of proposed units and/or air handlers, and estimated cost of improvements. Final documents provided to the City should be in a manner in which the City is able collect bids for the installation work.

The City will make available the original blue prints for the Department of Public Works building. Attached are pages from the plans, showing the areas of concern. Main areas of concern are as follows:

  • Breakroom/Lunch room and men’s locker room area: This area is controlled by two units, one of which does not have AC, therefore the men’s locker room (including bathroom and shower areas) are not air conditioned but does have constant air flow. The AC that is located here, does not cool properly nor does it heat properly.
  • Women’s locker room: heated by a constant heating system and variable air exchanger. This area sees little use and the current system is not efficient for the use of the area.
  • Office areas highlighted in green: These areas do not have an air handling unit and are heated and cool by individual mini-split units. These units are nearing the end of their expected life and are not efficient.

It is the City’s intent to replace or add air handling units under the direction of the selected contractor. The City will most likely have to add this expense in future budgets and may have to post pone the actual work until future dates.

City of Muskegon will host a site meeting (non-mandatory) on Thursday, July 29, 2021 at 10:00 am (at DPW building, 1350 E Keating Ave) to answer questions and review the project site.  Questions submitted to Joel Brookens via email (Joel.Brookens@shorelinecity.com) prior to Friday, July 30 at 4:00 pm will be accommodated prior to the bid opening.  Requests received after that date will be accommodated pending staff availability.

Subcontractors, if any, shall be approved by the Project Manager prior to acceptance on this contract and shall bound by these specifications.  It is the responsibility and duty of the contractor to verify that the subcontractor meets all conditions.  The contractor shall furnish any subcontractor’s proof of insurance meeting city requirements.

Construction shall be per applicable industry and City of Muskegon standards and shall comply with all applicable City of Muskegon policies and procedures.

RFQ – Kruse Park Boardwalk

INTRODUCTION TO PROJECT

The City of Muskegon is seeking proposals from architectural firms to provide preliminary design concepts and cost estimates relative to replacing the Lake Michigan Beach Access at Kruse Park.

Kruse Park – https://goo.gl/maps/L6jQESpSp4iHVhVR6

Kruse Park is located on the shores of Lake Michigan at the southern end of the City of Muskegon Limits.  Access to the site is via Sherman Boulevard from US-31.

The park serves as one of the primary access points to Lake Michigan within the City of Muskegon and also serves as the designated dog beach within the City. Access from the parking lot to the beach is provided via a handicap accessible boardwalk which traverses from the parking lot down to the beach, approximately a 30 FT elevation difference.

During the high water events on Lake Michigan in 2019-2020 portions of the boardwalk were compromised and eroded requiring the closure of the boardwalk and removal of several sections of decking before they were washed into the lake.  Currently the portion of the boardwalk providing access to the lakefront is closed and remains unusable due to the sections that required removal.

The City is seeking qualified firms to provide the following services:

  • Review of the site and assessment of the existing conditions
  • Identify options for the site to restore access between the lakefront and parking lot
  • Prepare conceptual renderings and cost estimates for the identified options
  • Hosting an public meeting to solicit feedback on the identified options
  • Preparing a final recommendation inclusive of the conceptual designs, cost estimates, public feedback, any revisions/changes to the conceptual designs, and identification potential funding sources to move the project forward

The City is seeking firms with prior experience working on projects of similar scope.

The City has allocated a preliminary budget of $15,000 for completion of the items identified in this proposal.
