Manitoba Infrastructure is looking for feedback from the heavy construction industry on its draft specifications for cold central plant recycling, which it plans to include in the tender for a bituminous reconstruction project on PTH 34.
“Cold central plant recycling (CCPR) is not a new construction process, however, MI is now adopting this process and proposes this construction method be delivered with quality specification,” a notice issued this week by the department said.
“As previously outlined, quality specification requires the contractor to be responsible for quality control and MI is to be responsible for quality assurance. MI proposes to incorporate this specification in a tender for Bituminous Reconstruction on PTH 34 from PTH 1 to PTH 16, to be advertised on December 1, 2020.”
The Tendering and Contracts Branch of the department is asking for input from the industry before the project is put to tender on December 1.
The MHCA is asking any member who has concern regarding the new specification, to please submit your comments to MHCA President Chris Lorenc at firstname.lastname@example.org by Wednesday, November 25 at noon.
