1. If the bulky waste open-top trailer loading pit is removed/utilized for the new compactor, does operations need a replacement equivalent or smaller bulky waste open-top trailer loading pit?
2. In the pre-bid meeting, it was mentioned that construction is included in this bid. Please clarify, is this construction management/CQA (as stated in the RFP) or the construction itself (supply and install).
Bulky Waste Response: The material which would have been classified as bulky or large is typically crushed or broken up by the front end loaders. Additionally, those items arrive on-site via roll-off truck and or compactors and it is expected that this material will fit in the compactor we are seeking in terms of size and capacity. In short, there will no longer be a need for an open-top loading area should that be the destination chosen for the compactor installation.
Construction Management Response: Kent County DPW (DPW) desire a proposal for a turn key installation which includes engineering, design and specifications for equipment with a cost estimate for budgetary review. Upon selection, the DPW would have the opportunity to pursue the construction phase of the project in which the selected group would then be expected to provide construction, installation and project management through completion which would include equipment startup and operational testing.
