CITY OF TROUTDALE PRELIMINARY SANDY RIVERFRONT PARK STRUCTURAL ENGINEERING Statements due: August 27, 2020 @ 5:00 pm REQUEST FOR STATEMENT OF INTEREST AND QUALIFICATIONS It is the City of Troutdale’s intent to seek professional engineering services of a qualified registered structural engineer, licensed in the State of Oregon, to design; prepare 30% and 60% plans and specifications, and assist with project administration for the City’s Sandy Riverfront Park project. The City estimates the professional services fees for this contract to be $150,000. The City will screen and select consultants as outlined in ORS 279C.110(5). The short-listed consultants will be required to provide pricing information in their proposals at the proposal stage of the selection process. Project Background: The Sandy Riverfront Park is located in downtown Troutdale between the Union Pacific Railroad tracks, East Historic Columbia River Highway, Beaver Creek and the Sandy River. This 2.25-acre park is adjacent to the Union Pacific Railroad line and bridge over the Sandy River. Facilities at the park include a historic train depot, which is now a railroad museum; a parking area; and a picnic spot and viewpoint along Beaver Creek and a trail that travels above the creek down to its confluence with the Sandy river. The primary goal of the project is to a design trail extension for this trail to travel underneath the Union Pacific bridge to connect to existing trails at the north side of the I-84 bridge. To meet ADA standards, the trail beneath the RR bridge will be an elevated pedestrian walkway. In addition, per Union Pacific requirements, the trail will need an impervious protective cover where the trail is within 30′ of the elevated track and bridge. The City of Troutdale has a 30% civil and landscape design that will be used as the basis for this project which will be provided online. The City has contracted to continue the design work with the landscape/civil team in tandem with the structural team retained through this RFQ/RFP process. The civil/landscape team’s work will include overall trail alignment, preliminary grading, stormwater and erosion control plans, preliminary work on the No Rise Analysis, lighting plan, conceptual planting, conceptual nature play, and irrigation including POC. A topographical survey was completed in 2019 and will be provided to the selected structural team. No geotechnical work has been completed to date – this work should be included in the proposed team for this RFQ. The City of Troutdale is now seeking a qualified Professional Structural Engineer, licensed in the State of Oregon, to create a design for the elevated walkway and protective cover that integrates with the City’s approved 30% plans and the Union Pacific Railroad’s guidelines for development. The selected Consultant team will review the existing 30% set and related reports, maps and documentation; meet and coordinate with the landscape/civil team and the City of Troutdale’s project manager and pertinent City staff; consult and coordinate with the railroad regarding design requirements, study the site geotechnical conditions and their effect on design and constructability; identify and incorporate related regulatory requirements; and prepare 30% and 60% plans and 60% specifications, cost estimates.
