0 Comments

Tender Number: RFT-02-2015-HP
Tender Closing Date: February 17, 2015, at 2:00 p.m. ET

Introduction

The scope of work includes the design, supply and installation of a new canopy cover, new sturdy, secure, wind resistant, watertight and manually drawn side curtains on an existing canopy structure, structural alterations to the exiting canopy structure, and new window and entrance awnings, that will meet all current standards and codes having jurisdiction, which includes all relevant inspections and testing, authority sign-offs and existing and as-built drawings.

Confirmation will be required by the successful Bidder if the existing canopy structure is in compliance with all authorities having jurisdiction and will be able to accommodate side curtains, if not it, the work required to do so will be a part of the successful Bidder’s scope of work. The successful Bidder will also confirm if the existing building structure is adequate to accommodate the current structure and subsequent modifications.

The location of the new canopy cover and awnings is subjected to a unique micro-climate, where precipitation in the form of mist is an ongoing occurrence. This mist coupled with the sunshine, subjects the canopy cover and awnings to a high burn rate. Also the new canopy cover and awnings must be UV-A & B and colour fading resistant. Thus the new canopy cover and awnings will need to have a minimum 8 year prorated warranty. Bidders will need to submit a prorated warranty schedule with their Bid submission.

The new canopy cover and awnings will have the ability to be removed and reinstalled seasonally as required and will need to have an adequate “hand” for the ease of folding and storage. Also, the new canopy cover and awnings will need to be watertight where it meets the existing building.

Bidders must include with their Stipulated Price Bid Breakdown the costs associated with the initial installation and seasonal removal of the new canopy cover and awnings. The successful Bidder will be responsible for the removal at the end of the 2015 tourist season (anticipated: November 2015). The Owner may request that when the successful Bidder is removing the canopy cover and awnings at the end of the 2015 tourist season that the Owners internal trades or external service providers / contractors are present to observe the process for future reinstallation.

The successful Bidder will supply a detailed inspection, maintenance, installation, removal and storage manual for the Owners use, so that the Owner can educate their internal trades or external service providers / contractors on the process to seasonally install and remove the canopy cover and awnings as not to void the prorated warranty.

The intent is that the new canopy and awnings will be multi-patterned and multi-coloured. Also the Owner may request that some messaging, branding, marketing, etc. language and logos be adhered to the canopy cover and awnings. Exact lettering, logos, colour(s), patterns, finishes of the new canopy and awnings will be chosen by the Owner after award to the successful Bidder. Bidders need to submit proposed material samples, material specifications and colour palette with their Bid submission.
