Construction Management at Risk Firms

The Village of Elida, Ohio requests that Construction Management at Risk (CMR) Firms submit a Statement of Qualifications for consideration.  Firms interested in providing Construction Management at Risk services for the Wastewater Treatment Plant Upgrade Project must have completed and submitted three hard copies and one thumb drive of the Statement of Qualifications.  Qualifications are to be received by the Village of Elida, Ohio, at the Village Office, 406 East Main Street, Elida, Ohio, 45807 on September 22, 2022, prior to 10:00 a.m., to be eligible for consideration.

A copy of the Request for Qualifications (RFQ) is available through Jones & Henry Engineers, Ltd. by making a request via e-mail to  blowery@jheng.com.  Copies of the RFQ will be distributed electronically in PDF format.  Sealed packages for this request must be clearly marked with the project name “Elida WWTP – Upgrade Project Construction Manager at Risk” on all inner and outer envelopes and/or shipping containers and must be addressed and delivered to the Village of Elida, Ohio, 406 East Main Street; Elida, Ohio, 45807 to the attention of Dave Metzger, Village Administrator, by September 22, 2022 @ 10:00 a.m., Elida Time.  Outside of envelopes and packaging not properly marked may result in submittal not being received before deadline and could result in submittal being disqualified. Submittals not complete may result in submittal being disqualified.

The project includes the following:  Oxidation Ditch, Final Clarifiers, UV System Expansion, Dewatering Facilities, SCADA System, Related Support Structures, Electrical, Piping, Utility, and Site Improvements, and Demolition of Selected Abandoned Structures.

The CMR firm will be asked to provide pre-construction phase services, construction phase services, and post construction phase services.  It is anticipated the selected CMR shall be allowed to self-perform work, if specified procedures are followed.

Questions regarding the project shall be e-mailed to Brad Lowery at blowery@jheng.com.  Selection of the CMR will be a two-step process, starting with the submission of qualifications.  The Village shall select the most qualified firms, and those firms shall be asked to submit proposals.  The firms submitting proposals may be requested to participate in an interview.

The Village of Elida reserves the right to waive any submittal or submittal process irregularities which the Village determines in its sole discretion to be in its favor, to reject any or all submittals for any reason determined to be appropriate in the sole discretion of the Village, and to shortlist any firm meeting the Village’s needs as determined by the Village at the Village’s sole discretion.


Village Residents – Electric Aggregation Update
You are likely aware by now of the Village’s electric aggregation supplier, Volunteer Energy Services, Inc. (VESI), filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy towards the end of March. While this indicates VESI intends to return all of its customers to the AEP default supply service option, there will be no interruption in your electric supply. Over the past few weeks, the Village has been working to obtain alternative supplier pricing options for the Village’s program. Due to increases in wholesale electric prices, which trade publicly on an open market and change by the moment, alternative supplier pricing is not currently advantageous. While the Village will continue to evaluate ever-changing market conditions, we recommend you remain AEP supply until a new program rate is negotiated.
