Adelaide Pointe – Public Improvements

The City of Muskegon, through agreements with the developer and in conjunction with the Muskegon Brownfield Redevelopment Authority, has agreed to extend public utilities, public road access, and other public improvements to and through portions of the property known as Adelaide Pointe. The City of Muskegon is seeking proposals from interested consulting engineers to provide full survey, design and construction project services for the public portions of the project.  Work by the selected engineer will include the following:

 

Phase I – Investigation and Conceptual Refinement Phase

  • Survey the entire site to establish site features, topography and boundaries.
  • Perform geotechnical and/or other investigations as needed to support the design(s).
  • Work with the City and with the developer’s design team to refine the conceptual layout for streets, utilities and other public improvements as shown in the attachments to achieve a complete site plan acceptable to the City and the developer’s team.
  • Work with the City and the developer’s team to determine design and construction phasing limits that build critical components of the development in a timely fashion.

Phase II – Design Engineering Phase(s)

  • Design access roads and drainage in accordance with City Standards as shown on the attachments and as refined during the Investigation and Conceptual Refinement Phase.
  • Design public utility service (water and sanitary sewer) for the site, and coordinate with private/franchise utilities (electric, gas, fiber, etc.) to provide service.
  • The City’s stormwater standards reflect those issued by the Muskegon County Drain Commissioner. Coordinate with the developer’s team to meet the standards for the entire site, and assist with agreements, legal descriptions and other items necessary to provide for long term maintenance and separation of public and private responsibilities.
  • Develop plans, specifications and complete contract documents for the public components associated with each construction phase.
  • Prepare final property boundaries including remaining parcels, road rights-of-way and any utility easements for the entire site.
  • Obtain all necessary permits for the public portions of the project and, to the extent that is practical, any other portions that connect or are inseparable.
  • Assist the City in soliciting bids for each construction phase of the public improvements, and at the direction of bond counsel to satisfy bond sale requirements.

Phase III – Construction and Administration Phase(s)

  • Provide full-time construction inspection, with testing, of the public portions to ensure the project plans, specifications, permit requirements and other standards are followed.
  • Oversee and administrate the construction contract on behalf of the City, including any grant administration, cost-share accounting and other necessary financial administration.
  • Prepare pay estimates including detailed breakdowns of construction contract items, by phase and by funding source as applicable, and recommend payment for City approval.
  • Maintain records and measurements of all critical dimensions and items, and prepare as-built plans. Submit complete project records to the City at closeout.

Several supporting documents are included as attachments to this RFP to help in the development of proposal.  Note that these documents are not final, and do not necessarily represent the City’s approval of the layout:
