A Resolution to Award A Contract for Cell II Construction at the Corral Farm Landfill



Topic Description:

Fauquier County has requested bids for the construction of Cell II for Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) at the Corral Farm Landfill.  The development of this cell is consistent with the landfill master plan. This project will create approximately 800,000 cubic yards of permitted landfill space that will provide for MSW needs for the next six to eight years.  


The use of the current MSW landfill cell will need to be terminated within the next twelve months. Staff is concerned that the new cell be completed this calendar year and is mindful of the need for good weather conditions to complete this work.  Therefore, a notice of intent to award the contract has been issued and the contract may be executed subject to the Board’s ratification. The contract also contains an incentive provision that will provide a payment of $1,000 a day, to a maximum of $30,000, if the work is completed during days 61 through 90 from the date of notice to proceed.


One bid was submitted in the amount of $1,914,520.  The bid was just below the engineer’s project estimate and is submitted by an experienced contractor.  Engineering and inspection fees in the amount of $217,000 are also included in the landfill budget for the project.
