The City of Durham is seeking assistance through professional services for the survey, design, permitting and developing of construction documents for the Lodge Street Regional Stormwater Improvements project. The City is seeking this assistance through the Small Local Business Enterprise (SLBE) program. Through this request for qualifications, the City intends to select the most qualified team based on their submittals. The City intends to negotiate with the most qualified team in order to enter into a contract to address the project site.
The Lodge Street Regional project site (see GoMaps: https://goo.gl/aMhrpx) involves replacing and/or rerouting a compromised, existing stormwater drainage pipe system located both in the City right-of-way and on private property. It is the City’s preference to relocate as much of the system as possible into the City right-of-way.
Due to the compromised condition of the stormwater drainage system, this project is being expedited with reduced timeframes for advertising, awarding, and project schedule.
