The Resort Municipality of Whistler (RMOW) is inviting qualified engineering consultant proponents that specialize in designing heat systems to provide proposals for a heat system review, design, procurement, contract administration and construction management for the RMOW's 2019 Composting Facility Heat Recovery System Upgrades.
The current RMOW Composting Facility heat recovery system is inoperable due to corrosion of the heat pump evaporator coils from suspected high ammonia levels. The project aims to replace and upgrade the heat recovery system to achieve an expansion of the heat recovery potential. This project will be funded by grant money received by the RMOW from the Union of British Columbia Municipalities through the Federal Gas Tax Fund in British Columbia for the implementation of this work.
The RMOW requires a mechanical and electrical consulting engineering team to provide an assessment of the current heat recovery system, provide a design and recommendations for improvements, prepare design drawings, issue a tender for the chosen mechanical and electrical upgrades to install the heat recovery system upgrades, and provide contract administration and construction management services for the project.
The aim of the RMOW is to have a system that is scalable, first providing heat to the compost process building to remove its reliance on propane and then to provide heat to an aeration floor in the materials storage building. The system upgrades should be able to recover as much of the potential heating power as practicable.
Non-Mandatory Site Visit:
A non-mandatory site visit will be held on Tuesday January 8, 2019 at 10am. Any Proponents wishing to attend are to notify the RMOW by Monday January 7, 2019 at 2pm.
Site Visit Address: Whistler Compost Facility, 100 Brandywine FSR, Whistler, BC
