The New York City Economic Development Corporation (NYCEDC) says it is seeking as many as nine design consultants or consultant teams to provide design services for green infrastructure in the Brooklyn Coney Island Wastewater Treatment Plant tributary areas
NYCEDC says the project supports the city’s Department of Environmental Protection’s (NYCDEP) Green Infrastructure Program and to deliver green infrastructure capital projects.
“These capital projects, primarily Right of Way Bioswales (ROWB), are to be implemented in target areas in order to comply with state and federal regulations regarding water quality attainment and mitigation of CSOs, and in connection with replacement projects that will defer consent order capital obligations of “grey” infrastructure projects that would otherwise cost several hundred million dollars,” NYCDEC says in its announcement.
“NYCEDC plans to select consultants on the basis of factors stated in the RFP which include, but are not limited to: the quality of the proposal, experience of key staff identified in the proposal, experience and quality of any subcontractors proposed, demonstrated successful experience in performing services similar to those encompassed in the RFP, and the proposed fee.”
The RFP submission deadline is April 13. There’s an optional information session March 20 at the NYCEDC, 110 William St. Those who wish to attend should RSVP by email to GreenInfrastructure@edc.nyc by 5:00 p.m. on March 16.
