Services shall include, but not be limited to: power distribution and control systems through 25,000 volts, power generation, SCADA, instrumentation and control systems, electrical system analysis, programming of various devices and controllers, grounding and lightning protection, communications, fire alarm and security systems, construction means and methods, field testing, commissioning, inspections, and troubleshooting at water treatment plants, pump stations, dams and reservoirs, vaults, hydroelectric powerplants, and commercial and residential buildings. Firms and proposed Professional Electrical Engineers shall be familiar with and follow Denver Water’s Capital Projects Construction Standards (CPCS), Capital Projects Procedures Manual (CPPM), federal, state, and local code requirements, and industry standards. 9. Environmental Acoustics Conduct in-situ noise measurements, regulatory compliance assessments, noise level predictions, permitting, and noise mitigation recommendations. 10. Estimating Services Construction cost estimates (opinions of probable construction costs) for Capital Projects at varying levels of design completion. Project levels of design completion will vary from conceptual levels to 30%, 60%, 90%, and bid-ready Contract Documents per Denver Water’s Capital Project Procedures Manual. Capital Projects include pipelines, pump stations, structures, water treatment, civil infrastructure, electrical and mechanical disciplines, and other facilities related to the water system. 11. Geotechnical Services Geotechnical engineering services including conducting exploratory test holes, soil sampling and analysis, and design recommendations. Findings of such services are to be formalized into geotechnical investigation reports and/or geotechnical recommendation memorandums. Geotechnical recommendations will cover the design and construction of buildings, wet wells, pump stations, reservoirs, tunnels, trenchless pipelines, foundation tie-back systems, rock stabilization, rock scaling, and/or rock bolting projects. Expertise in the analysis of soils and groundwater contamination will be required, including determination of requirements for Colorado Department of Health and Environment (CDPHE) dewatering permits. Companies with earthfill dam experience are encouraged to submit under the Dam Engineering Services Discipline. 12. Geotechnical Services for Trenchless Tunneling Geotechnical engineering services associated with trenchless pipeline installation, including conducting exploratory test holes and soil sampling and analysis, formalized into Geotechnical Data Reports (GDR). Following GDR generation, the geotechnical engineer will be asked to build a Risk Assessment Memorandum (RAM) and risk registry to define potential risks. The GDR and RAM will be used to develop a Geotechnical Baseline Report (GBR) that creates the basis for the design of tunneling methods based on soils conditions and available technologies. In addition to local inhouse geotechnical engineers with extensive experience in the Denver Water service area, the submitted resumes for this technical discipline area shall also include a minimum of two (2) (no maximum limit) third-party licensed Geotechnical Engineers with both design experience and continued litigation experience to act as independent peer reviewers of GBRs, as deemed necessary for particular projects. 13. Hazardous Material Services (Hazmat) Environmental characterization and remediation during the design and/or construction phase of the Capital Project including, but not limited to: site characterization and assessment, groundwater sampling and analysis, regulatory compliance assessment, permitting, recommendations and treatment design, design review, oversight during construction, inspection, design, proposal, document and submittal reviews, and cost estimating of mitigation measures. This discipline will most often be used as it relates to groundwater, but other types of remediation services may be needed.
