Request for Proposal

Engineering Study on Energy Conservation Measures at Scott Seaman Sports Rink

Closing date and time: 4:00 pm (MST), Monday, April 10, 2020

The Foothills County (the “County”), the owner and operator of Scott Seaman Sports Rink (SSSR), requests submissions from experienced contractors interested in completing “Engineering Study” on some identified ECMs (Energy Conservation Measures) that may lead to potential GHG Reduction Retrofit Project at SSSR.

The County intends to select a proponent as an “Energy Partner” (or EP) through this RFP to complete engineering study on the ECMs. The outcome of the study will determine if the county (governed by a Municipal Council) will proceed (or otherwise) with the implementation of some or all of the ECMs. The County may retain the EP as the main contractor (or project manager) to manage the implementation of the ECMs, in which case, the County may prefer open-book contract for the implementation project. As the County also owns numerous other facilities including office buildings, workshops and water plants to mention a few, the County may retain the selected Energy Partner to implement similar or other Energy Saving projects in these facilities based on the performance of this RFP and any associated SSSR projects that may be undertaken.
