The Resort Municipality of Whistler (RMOW) is planning to increase the wood chip storage capacity at the Whistler Compost Facility.
Initially, wood chip waste was being stored in an unsheltered area and was collecting moisture from the surrounding environment. RMOW then rolled out a plan to construct a shelter for the storage of wood chips in two phases.
Phase #1: Construction of a shelter structure of approximately 18.200m [60’] in width by 19.800m [65’] in length. This part of the project was completed in 2015.
Phase #2: Construction of a shelter structure to extend the shelter created in Phase 1 by 150’ in length.
RMOW plans to award a contract for Phase 2 of the project. This bid package is regarding Phase 2 construction.
The proposed storage shelter extension structure is a metal cladded building placed parallel and adjacent to the building constructed in Phase #1 (see attached drawings). Front end loaders and other mobile equipment will stockpile and reclaim wood chips from the storage shelter as required for production. The Phase #2 shelter extension will have four (4) bay openings on the East side of the shelter extension to allow mobile equipment to enter and exit the building during normal operations. Columns for the shelter extension structure will be complete with concrete pedestals as part of the foundation to protect the bay openings against potential damage. The shelter extension will be open on the North and South sides to allow ambient light to enter. The West side of the building will be fully cladded.
Construction is anticipated to start August 28th, 2018, pending owner and regulatory approvals. The Work of this Contract consists of the supply and install of a pre-engineered shelter structure extension of approximately 18.200m [60’] in width and approximately 46.000m [150’] in length.
