Request for Expressions of Interest and Statements of Qualifications


The City is seeking pre-qualification Submissions from interested Respondents to provide multidisciplinary Engineering design and analysis, Environmental permitting, Architectural design, Landscape Architectural services, Public Art specialists, Survey, Project Management, and Construction Support for the Nicomekl & Serpentine Sea Dams and KGB Nicomekl Bridge replacement in support of Coastal Climate Adaptation Works within the City, as further described in this RFEOI/SOQ. This project is part of the Disaster Mitigation and Adaptation Fund (DMAF) program and is funded in part by the Government of Canada.

The Coastal Climate Adaptation Works planned within the City consist of 13 individual infrastructure improvements, all focused on reducing Surrey’s vulnerability to coastal flooding and sea level rise. The individual improvements range from dyke and road upgrades, Sea dam and bridge replacements, to storm sewer upgrades, nature-based solutions and other infrastructure investments. Two (2) of these improvements are included as part of this RFEOI/SOQ and have been identified as major projects.

The two major projects included as part of this RFEOI.SOQ consist of (Refer to schedule C for project details):

• Serpentine Sea Dam Replacement,
• King George Boulevard Bridge (KGB) and Nicomekl Sea Dam Replacement,

Due to the similar nature and proximity of these two major projects, the design process will be completed as one comprehensive assignment for both projects, as described herein. A separate RFEOI/SOQ was prepared and posted for the environmental assessment services of these major DMAF projects.

The design life of the asset is to be 100 years.
