General Description of Requirement
The City of Vancouver (the “City”) is seeking Proposals to determine if it will enter into a contract in respect of site described equipment upgrades at it’s Vernon Silt Recovery Facility (VSRF).
The City of Vancouver (CoV) owns and operates the VSRF located at 1599 Vernon Drive, under the east
end of the Grandview Viaduct. Established in 2003, the facility stockpiles and dewaters road
construction materials extracted through an assortment of public works activities such street sweeping,
catch-basin cleaning, and hydro-excavation. The VSRF is beneficial as it provides a centralized depot
for city run and hired equipment to dump spoils. Equipment can then quickly return to localized work
sites as opposed to the extended travel times associated with driving outside the city boundaries to
unload. As a result, this improves equipment utilization, reduces operating costs, and reduces greenhouse
gas (GHG) emissions.
The City is looking to improve its ability to increase the dewatering process for dumped material at the Vernon Silt Recovery Site and maximize material processing and on-site storage capacities.
