The City of Fort Worth works to mitigate or eliminate potential environmental hazards in and around the community. Historically, Asbestos-Containing Materials (ACM) were commonly used in the construction of many structures such as homes and office buildings. When structures owned by the City of Fort Worth are improved, Environmental Quality Staff in the Code Compliance Department work to ensure compliance with federal/state regulations for abating any asbestos-containing materials which need to be removed for appropriate disposal. Planned improvements to the Fort Worth Will Rogers Municipal Complex – Pioneer Tower Project, located at 3401 West Lancaster Avenue, has allowed for ACM at the facility to be evaluated for removal and disposal prior to making improvements.
A Request for Proposal for the Removal of Asbestos-Containing Materials located at the Fort Worth Will Rogers Municipal Complex – Pioneer Tower Project, located at 3401 West Lancaster Avenue, was advertised on June 27, 2018, July 4, 2018, July 11, 2018, and July 18, 2018. Responsive submittals were received from the following four firms on August 30, 2018:
1. Horsley Specialties
2. HP Ecological Services, LLC, dba HP EnviroVision
3. I Priority
4. Team Enterprises
The submittals from each of the four firms were reviewed and rated by a committee, based on the published weighted selection criteria. The six criteria and their respective weightings were: (1) the firm's proposed cost (40 percent); (2) the prime contractor's proposed project team members and their experience (40 percent); and (3) the proposed project schedule (20 percent).
HP Ecological Services, LLC, dba HP EnviroVision, was selected as the most highly qualified respondent, based on proposed cost, demonstrated competence and qualifications provided in the Statement of Qualifications to perform the services in accordance with Chapter 2254 of the Texas Government Code.
M/WBE OFFICE: A waiver of the goal for MBE/SBE subcontracting requirements was requested by the Department and approved by the MWBE Office, in accordance with the MWBE or BDE Ordinance, because the purchase of goods or services is from sources where subcontracting or supplier opportunities are negligible.
The contract services will be performed until all of the asbestos-containing or asbestos-contaminated materials have been removed from specified areas of the building located at 3401 West Lancaster Avenue, Fort Worth, Texas for disposal. The Code Compliance Department has coordinated this project with Staff from the Property Management Department and the Public Events Department.
The Fort Worth Will Rogers Municipal Complex – Pioneer Tower Project, located at 3401 West Lancaster Avenue (COUNCIL DISTRICT 9), serves all patrons of the City of Fort Worth.
