Resolution - Solid Waste Management:
Consider a resolution authorizing the Mayor to execute a Professional Services Agreement, with Parkhill, for Professional Engineering Services regarding the Solid Waste Transfer Station.
The City of Lubbock Solid Waste Management Department (SWMD) currently collects and disposes all residential and some commercial solid waste collected from within the city limits. The City's municipal solid waste landfill is located in northern Lubbock County, at the intersection of FM 2528 and FM 597 west of Abernathy, Texas. Since the landfill was opened in 1998, growth in Lubbock has increased to the south, increasing the distance collection trucks must travel to the landfill. In FY 2020, SWMD obtained a Cost of Services Study that included a preliminary analysis of potential transfer station locations across the entire city. Three sites were chosen as preferred sites that require additional study before the City decides to make an offer to purchase the selected site.
In response to RFQ 21-15866-MA, statements of qualifications were received from 2 qualified firms to assist in developing a new transfer station for municipal solid waste operations. The responses were scored by an evaluation committee using criteria of 35% for Project Team Organization and Qualifications, 35% for Experience on Similar Projects, 20% for Project Approach, and 10% for Overall Responsiveness to the RFQ. The evaluation results are as follows:
Possible 100 Points
Parkhill, Lubbock, Texas
Weaver Consultants Group, Fort Worth, Texas
The selected firm will help finalize a preferred site, and then obtain a Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) operating permit. Following permitting, the firm will provide architectural and engineering design phase services with plans, specifications, and estimates. The selected Firm will also provide bid phase services, engineer of record and Resident Project Representation through the construction phase.
Staff recommends award of the Professional Services Agreement for the City of Lubbock Solid Waste Transfer Station with the highest ranked firm, Parkhill, of Lubbock, Texas.
The cost of the contract for Tasks 1 and 2 is $129,233 and is funded in Capital Project 92698, Transfer Station. Additional tasks will be authorized as funding is appropriated.
