PROJECT QUESTION: MCES-FM Diversion System

Question: A question was raised as part of the pre-bid meeting as to whether the multiple temporary wastewater diversion systems shown on the MCES-FM documents could be combined as part of construction to reduce the number of line-stop taps and/or system fittings.

Response: Contractors shall bid the project using the system(s) outlined and/or described in the documents as they closely correlate with the necessary overall project sequencing of construction as outlined within both the MCES-FM documents and the recommended overall project construction schedule. Following the bid opening, discussions between Hennepin County, MCES, the successful contractor, and the approved diversion system subcontractor, can take place regarding ideas to modify the diversion system(s) layouts together with the overall sequencing/scheduling, to determine the best diversion system segmentations for overall project efficiency.
