The Board of Trustees of the Southern Illinois University governing Southern Illinois University Edwardsville hereby requests sealed bids to furnish all labor, equipment, tools and materials to replace existing domestic hot water boilers with new boilers in Woodland Hall located on the Edwardsville campus of SIUE. Bids will be received from SIUE prequalified plumbing contractors. All work must be performed by an Illinois licensed plumber.
Domestic hot water must be maintained during the project, so demolition of the existing boilers and installation of the new boilers will need to be sequenced. If the alternate is accepted on this project, final tie-in between the new piping and the boilers and storage tank will need to be completed during Thanksgiving Break, November 21-27, 2016. Note that the University is closed on November 24 and 25, 2016.
Construction Phase 1 is for the replacement of the boilers and Construction Phase 2 is for the alternate work, replacement of the existing cold water, hot water, and hot water recirculation piping within the mechanical room.
A mandatory pre-bid conference, for all those interested in bidding the project, will be held on September 9, 2016 at 10:00 a.m. in the Supporting Services Building. Representatives of the University and BRiC Partnership will be present to answer questions regarding the project and bidding procedures. All prospective bidders are required to attend. All representatives must be in the conference room of the Supporting Services by 10:10 and must stay for the entire meeting and site visit. All contractors are required to sign in and sign out after site visit. If contractor is late or leaves before the completion of the meeting or site visit, the contractor will not be considered attending the pre-bid conference. This will be the only site visit. Subcontractors are encouraged to attend.
All questions must be e-mailed to Shelly Albert, firstname.lastname@example.org, by September 14, 2016, 12:00 p.m. Questions submitted after this date may not receive a response. Answers to all questions will be addressed in the form of an addendum and will be posted on the Illinois Higher Education Procurement Bulletin website, www.procure.stateuniv.state.il.us. Questions should not be addressed to any other SIUE or a BRiC Partnership representative. If contact of any kind occurs with any other representative, this will be grounds for disqualification.
Bidders who have not completed and returned their prequalification statement which is valid for the period January 1, 2016 through December 31, 2016, will be required to prequalify in accordance with the bidding contract provision - Document 00250 Prequalification Documents.

All first-tier subcontractors also meet this requirement. This applies to both in-state and out-of-state firms. Failure to provide the Certificate of Good Standing (or other qualifications as noted in the form included with this document) with your bid will result in your bid being considered as non-responsive.
