DOE Seeks Small Business for Oak Ridge K-33 Demolition

The Department of Energy (DOE) released a Request for Proposal (RFP) recently for the demolition and removal of the Building K-33 Facility at the Oak Ridge Reservation’s East Tennessee Technology Park.

A firm fixed-price task order will be awarded for this work that is expected to be completed by Sept. 30, 2011.

The RFP is limited to only small business contract holders under the existing Office of Environmental Management Nationwide Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity (ID/IQ) Multiple Award Contracts. Proposals are due to the Cincinnati-based Environmental Management Consolidated Business Center (EMCBC) by March 4, with a projected award date of early April 2010. The scope of this acquisition includes the K-33 demolition activities, siding removal, building demolition to the slab; and packaging and transportation for disposal of all associated wastes to on-site waste disposal facilities operated by DOE.

The Building K-33 facility is a partially decontaminated multi-story building that is more than 1.4 million square feet of concrete and steel. The facility was constructed in 1954 as a uranium enrichment facility and operated from 1954 to 1985. As part of a reindustrialization effort in 1997, the majority of the decontamination and decommissioning has been performed. The remaining facility will require removal and disposition of radiological and chemical contamination, hazardous waste, asbestos, and polychlorinated biphenyls contamination.

The use of American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 funds for the demolition of the Building K-33 facility, will allow for the completion of this project by September 2011.
