Request for Quotations


The City invites Quotations from experienced and qualified Contractors for the provision of everything required including all skilled labour, tools, materials, equipment for Mobile Flood Protection and any other requirements.


The mobile flood protection system should be reusable for multiple uses, durable to withstand debris, either sharp or large objects, without compromising the system, and versatile (e.g. can be deployed on grass, concrete, gravel, mud, etc.). The system should be flexible in design in order to be deployed and adaptable in various terrain and to allow for corners in natural or urban settings (e.g. river path, buildings). The system should be a minimum of 1.2 metres high and be capable of deploying 45 metres in length per hour.

The system should be able to be deployed quickly with ease, use minimal equipment, human resources and consumables. Furthermore, the system should be capable of being easily dismantled and use minimal storage space.


The City expects to use the mobile flood protection system in the following environments:

  1. Nicomekl River;
  2. Serpentine River;
  3. Fraser River;
  4. Crescent Beach; and
  5. General flood plain applications.

In addition to the above list, the City may have a need for the system in an urban environment.
