Who are we?: 

Who are we? SFOBB Project Manager Heavy Civil Construction Contractors Fabricators, Suppliers

Why are we here?: 

Why are we here? meeting is mechanism to inform the contracting community of the upcoming SAS Superstructure and In Bay foundation contracts. meeting is a way to create a dialogue with contractors, especially on issues of concern. for example we heard at May 13, 2002 workshop, mobilization payment for an "over the water" job does allow an acceptable cash flow for primes. We effected a change to the Public Contract Code for jobs of $25 million over water

Tools: 

Tools PowerPoint Meeting notes Handouts

Ground Rules: 

Ground Rules no decisions to be made discussion only to take place speakers keep to their time dialogue to follow decorum in order to create an atmosphere of respect

What can we accomplish: 

What can we accomplish understand changes made to Construction Contract since May 13, 2002 meeting understand Contractor Constructability concerns with In Bay Foundation and SAS Superstructure Contracts

Other Introductions:

Technical Issues/Changes since May 13, 2002 presented by Brian Maroney May 13, 2002 Constructability Workshop November 20, 2002 is last workshop before SAS Superstructure advertises

May 13, 2002: 

May 13, 2002 mobilization bonding * wire * welding * certification Buy America* temporary ramp on YBI Domestic Fabrication of SAS box and tower tower erection Jones Act schedule *

Mobilization Payments: 

Mobilization Payments Caltrans recognizes significant front end mobilization cost for complex marine projects Amend Section10264 of Public Contract Code, Add Section 284 to the Streets and Highway Code, relating to public works Chaptered September 27, 2002 over water and over $25 million

Mobilization Payments: 

Mobilization Payments specification prepared and to be inserted into 04-0120F4 and 04-0120E4 Public Contract Code language in handout

Bonding Caltrans recognizes that for very large projects the current bonding market has constraints Proposed legislation to reduce payment bond from 100% to 50%, possible bonding cap pursuing every opportunity

Wire : 

Wire waiver from buy America

Welding/Tolerance : 

Welding/Tolerance ongoing

Steel Fabricator Certification: 

Steel Fabricator Certification Caltrans recognizes importance of early approval currently developing specification language for partial payment for early approvals of Fabricator Shop Audits see handout, very very draft

Buy America : 

Buy America main cable wire supplier can this project be fabricated domestically allow “alternative bid” process for Buy America, foreign source total bid (foreign steel) bid lower by 25% domestic total bid (domestic steel) bid temporary works

Buy America Waivers : 

Buy America Waivers PPWS Strand (includes production of wire rod) Tower Saddle (single cast upper portion of 175 tons) S-Wire cable wrapping Macalloy bars - 75 mm dia high strength A722 bars ( w2, bent and hinge)

Jones Act 46 U.S.C. App Section 883 : 

Jones Act 46 U.S.C. App Section 883 see handout issue - foreign crane, domestic barge coastwise trade violation holding - not - provided barge meets issue - foreign crane, foreign barge coastwise trade violation holding - is a use

SAS Box Superstructure field splices we want to minimize field splices low bidder discretion allowed

Schedule: 

Schedule Cert. Shop drawing review/approval begin fabrication cable erection

Shop drawing review :

Payments for materials on site: 

Payments for materials on site distribution of cash flow over life of project if in United States see handout

Under Development: 

Under Development modified the TRO spec to provide for a max of 15% ( bid amount divide by number of working days bid) for progress payment purposes in lieu of standard 20%, see handout Caltrans will work with contractor on electronic submittal stipend to do engineering during bid

Mass Concrete : 

Mass Concrete thermal control plan adds flexibility ACI methods were created for very very large elements

South - South Detour: 

South - South Detour Mixed message for industry Some want in on design of detour Others will not perform design

Oakland Touchdown: 

Oakland Touchdown well over 100 million discretize to ? west bound and east bound contracts west bound east bound frame (in water) *******

Other Issues : 

Other Issues s-wrap desired because of maintenance appeal locks out moisture it’s a better surface for painting PPWS goes up faster, less air, less water, less splices Caltrans is anxious to hear any aerial spun cable option - Contractors must show reasonable support on anchorage strand jacks, space issue

space is an issue: 

space is an issue

Open Discussion with Contractors: 

Open Discussion with Contractors 10:45am – 1:00pm your chance to express concerns over what you’ve learned today your chance to let us know what your questions are
