The University awarded a contract for underground ductile piping repair.
This emergency/quick purchase was required due to a situation in which immediate repairs were needed to prevent further loss or damage to University property.
On November 5, 2012 University Facilities staff at the College of Medicine at Peoria could not locate the origin of an underground pipe leak somewhere between the Mechanical Room and the outside Chiller Unit. The decision was made to request evaluation/assessment from an external Contractor. There is only one company, Illinois Piping Corporation, located in Peoria that could assist with this problem immediately. On the morning of November 6, 2012 Illinois piping Corporation did perform the evaluation/assessment and generated a quote the next day, November 7, 2012. This quote was accepted by the UIC Vice Chancellor of Administrative Services on November 7, 2012 and was delivered to UIC Purchasing on the evening of November 7, 2012. The accepted quote includes excavation, new ductile iron piping, bedding, backfill, concrete and reseeding of hillside.
