U.S. Army Engineer District, New York, CENAN-CT, 26 Federal Plaza, New York, NY 10278-0090

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, New York District is issuing this Sources Sought Notice to determine if there is an adequate number of small business firms (e.g. 8(a), HUBZone SB, SDVOSB, WOSB/EDWOSB) having the capability and bonding capacity for the following effort. The procurement method for this solicitation will be an invitation for bids.  Project magnitude is between $10 million and $25 million.

SCOPE OF WORK: Camp Buckner was constructed in various stages since its earliest beginnings during World War II in 1943 with subsequent additions and expansions from the 1950s through the 1980s. The goal of this project is to repair selected existing Camp Buckner facilities and sites to address immediate or persistent structural integrity, building envelope, life, health, and safety concerns.

Twelve buildings have been selected for the first phase of this revitalization. Selective improvements will introduce new systems, such as air conditioning and vapor barriers, into the existing facilities and will reconfigure the existing facilities to eliminate the root cause of long­term deleterious effects.

Fire Suppression, Fire Alarm, and mass notification systems will all be modernized, and HVAC and broadband internet will be installed in each barracks.

All plumbing systems will be repaired/adapted as required, with all new plumbing fixtures. All hazardous materials within the buildings, including mold, mildew, lead (Pb), and asbestos, will be completely abated. Interior and Exterior Lighting will be improved. Utility service lines and infrastructure will be repaired and upgraded as necessary.
