Request for Qualifications and Proposal

Request for Qualifications and Proposal

Description of Project:

The Lincoln County old stone jail (now used as a county office building), located at 520 Topaz Street in Kemmerer, Wyoming was built in 1913 and extensively remodeled in the late 1980s. The interior was totally stripped to the rock walls and dirt floor, however, no significant exterior work was done. The building is sandstone that was quarried locally. The columns on the front of the building, various sills and some rocks show deterioration. The grout joints also need to be inspected for deterioration and the mortar needs to be checked for suitability of the mortar material. The project, which may need to be phased, is a request for a proposal to perform a complete masonry restoration and repair of the existing masonry.

 

The building is in use Monday through Friday and will need to remain in use for the duration of the project. There are multiple entrances to the building so an entrance may be blocked for a period of time to facilitate work. The initial funding available is approximately $50,000. If necessary work will exceed that amount, the contractor is requested to propose a phased project that considers both the funding available and the work that can logically be done in a phased approach while not unnecessarily escalating the overall cost due to the phasing of the project.

 

The intent is to hire a qualified Masonry Contractor to perform all phases of the project through completion.
