Town issues Request for Qualifications for Engineering Services related to Repair of the Hydroelectric Dam

In March 2018  Lake Lure Town Council requested the assistance of Dr. Dan Marks to develop a detailed scope of work for each phase of the dam renovation project.

Dr. Marks completed the scope of work and a draft Request for Qualifications (RFQ) has been developed for the project.

Due to the overall cost and complexity of the project, the Town is required to issue an RFQ for engineering services.

The RFQ seeks professional engineering services from qualified engineering consulting firms to prepare design and construction contract documents and perform construction observation and administration services for the multi-phase, multi-year project. 

Included within the RFQ applicants will find:

  • Brief summaries of the history and design of Lake Lure Dam and hydroelectric generation facilities
  • location, descriptions, and characteristics of the dam
  • Information concerning the recently completed two-phase dam safety inspection
  • The anticipated schedule and scope of project activities to be performed by the selected consultant

Also provided are prescriptive guidelines for preparation and submittal of Statements of Qualifications and the Town's process for evaluating firms based on their submittals and selection of a best-qualified consultant to perform the project.

The deadline for receipt of submittals is by 5 pm on June 1st, 2018.   The Town will then negotiate with the firm that is determined to be most qualified to complete all phases of the project.  Have questions? Email our Town Manager here
