§                     This project will provide design phase services and development of a guaranteed maximum price (GMP) for construction of approximately 14,000 linear feet of sanitary sewer pipe in the Irwin Basin, moving east from Revolution Golf Course across Interstate 77 to the intersection at Remount Road and South Tryon Street (Council District 3).

§                     The project will require the acquisition of easements along the sanitary sewer main corridor. During acquisition negotiation, property owners will have an opportunity to voice comments and concerns about the alignment of the sewer and easement acquisition affecting their property.

§                     B.R.S., Inc. is the best qualified firm to meet the city’s needs on the basis of demonstrating competence and qualification of professional services in response to the RFQ requirements.

§                     In the future, Council will receive a request for the approval of the GMP once it is established.
