Derry transfer station project bidding continues

DERRY — Four companies have been chosen to move on to the second phase of the bidding process for the new transfer station project, according to public works officials.

The project was delayed earlier this year because of cost overruns, but plans are again moving forward for the facility. The town is seeking a company to award the bid for the approximately $3 million project, Michael Fowler, director of public works, said during the town council’s Tuesday night meeting.

In the first stage of the bidding process, seven companies submitted proposals to the town by late June. After reviewing the proposals, four companies were then chosen to continue on to the second phase, Fowler said.

The four companies are: Hutter Construction Corp., New Ipswich; North Branch Construction, Concord; Ricci Construction Corp, Inc. Portsmouth; and Meridian Construction Corp., Gilford, Fowler said.

The next step calls for the four firms to deliver proposals to the town by Sept. 3.

“At this point they are going to be doing conceptual designs,” Fowler said. “They will be looking at cost options and analyzing what we believe will be a really engaging process for the town.”

After the proposals are evaluated, the town may conduct interviews with the firms. The goal is to select the best value and cost for the town, Fowler said.

Once the top firm is selected the permitting and site work would commence and run through the balance of 2014, Fowler said.

The bulk of the work would then begin in the spring of 2015, with the overall project completed in November, he said.

Christie is the real deal

We have found Gov. Chris Christie to be the most consistent, the most confident in his abilities, the most tested under fire, and the most likely to regain the White House from a disastrous Democratic regime.
