RFQ for Watermain Replacement ProjectThe City of Statesville is requesting the submission of qualifications from consulting Civil Engineering firms to provide professional engineering and design services for the replacement of watermains located within the City of Statesville, North Carolina, for the following project:
City of Statesville Watermain Replacement Project

Qualification packets will be received by the Utilities Department, City of Statesville Offices, at a designated drop point located at 301 South Center Street, Statesville, NC 28677 until September 30th, 2021 at 2 pm local time. Packages should be addressed to the attention of Ms. Autumn Hill.

The project consists of: (1) the replacement of 10,700 feet of a 20-inch cast iron, cement-lined (CICL) watermain (installed in 1948 with lead or leadite joints); and (2) the replacement of an additional 18,800 feet of 16-, 12- and 10-inch unlined, cast iron (ULCI) watermain. The project is expected to be designed and awarded in three phases to facilitate funding requirements. Construction of this project will be funded from multiple sources, including, to the maximum extent possible, by grants identified in the design process.

Construction of this project will require traversing a major interstate corridor during phase 1 and a railroad during phase 3. The project location is urban and inner city and will require coordination with other utilities and transportation corridors (both city and state roads). New construction will be adjacent to the current water service which will be maintained in service until cutover.

It is anticipated that this project will be constructed in three phases. Each phase, due to size, may require multiple construction contracts. The first phase will be fully developed for construction award and the follow-on phases will be initially designed and coordinated to 35% concept with preliminary cost estimates. Phases two and three will be fully developed (final design) as funding allows.

The request for qualifications packet, scope of services, and selection process information can be found at the following designated website:

The City of Statesville encourages the participation of DBE/MBE firms for this project.
