RFP EP20/21-17
BID OPENING FRIDAY, AUGUST 27, 2021 AT 11AM

The City of East Providence is soliciting proposals from companies that specialize in foundations and more specifically foundation stabilization. During a recent renovation the floor deck was removed which resulted in excessive movement of the main mast. That and the fact that the carousel is approximately 125 years old, the foundation requires stabilization. The carousel sits on a sandy soil with existing concrete piers located below each mudsill. There are four mudsills which support the main mast which in turn supports the entire ride. The stabilization plans have been designed by Geisser Engineering and Carousels and Carvings, Inc. A test pier support has been installed and the information is included herein.

Four (4) copies of a proposal shall be submitted in one (1) sealed envelope to East Providence City Hall, Controllers Office, Room 103, Attn: Dawn Kenney, Procurement Specialist, 145 Taunton Ave., East Providence, RI 02914 no later than FRIDAY, AUGUST 27, 2021 AT 11AM. The bids will be publicly recorded. Bids received with a time of 11:01 AM or later will be rejected. The outside envelope needs to be marked BID EP20/21-17.

A pre-bid meeting will be held on THURSDAY, AUGUST 12, 2021 at the site located at 700 Bullocks Point Avenue, East Providence, at 2 PM.

Any questions should be in writing and directed to Dan Borges, Director of Public Works dborges@eastprovidenceri.gov or Erik Skadberg, City Engineer, City of East Providence, Rhode Island eskadberg@eastprovidenceri.gov by THURSDAY, AUGUST 19, 2021 AT 4PM.
