The selected firm(s) shall furnish all expertise, labor and resources for preliminary engineering and cost estimating services relating to this project. A contract for these planning services would be substantially complete by October 31st, 2024. The following generally highlights the services that the firm will be required to perform:

  1. The Engineer will investigate the adequacy of the current roads, sidewalks, lighting, and drainage areas within the project area to service safe transportation movement, both vehicular and pedestrian and to adequately remove and transfer runoff within the project area. The Engineer will recommend necessary improvements that will eliminate current deficiencies and meet current VDOT standards.

  2. GIS and mapping services as needed for this project.

  3. The Engineer will include, within the PER recommendations, financial estimates that will include construction costs as well as long-term cost estimates for sidewalk, road, and drainage maintenance.

The Town of Altavista may, at its sole discretion, amend or extend its contract with the successful proposer to include building design and construction management services should the Town submit and be awarded a construction improvement grant from VDHCD.  Any new agreement will include required activities as stipulated by VDHCD.
