Supply and Delivery of Grave Vaults


Request for Applications for Standing Offer Agreements


The City is seeking experienced and qualified contractors with proven ability to supply and deliver concrete grave vaults at various locations within the City on an “as and when” required basis. The Goods and Services include without limitation the supply and delivery of material, the provision of skilled labour, and equipment to provide the Goods and perform the Services and other requirements of this RFA-SOA in the City.

A concrete grave vault is the chosen preference by the City which is an outer receptacle with lid that protects the integrity of the grave and reduces settling of the ground as heavy machinery can cause the graves to sink.

The required Goods and Services may include, but are not limited to:

Grave Vaults:

  • Smooth grey concrete finish
  • Welded wire mesh reinforcing cage

  • Inside 87” x 30” at base x 27.5” deep
  • Outside 92” x 35” x 30” tall
