SCOPE OF WORK This project is to deconstruct facilities and structures located at Kennedy Space Center (KSC) and Cape Canaveral Air Force Station (CCAFS). These facilities previously housed administrative and technical/operational support personnel or were mission support structures. The work will be required to be performed with minimal impact to the surrounding roads and facilities. It is anticipated that the work will occur primarily during the typical work hours of 7:00am to 3:30pm. The proposed acquisition will involve the following types of activities:

1. Deconstruction of approximately 65 concrete and/or steel framed facilities and structures totaling approximately 140,000 square feet. 2. Selective demolition, and subsequent construction of a new load bearing wall (approximately 2100 square feet) and associated roof, foundation, system and utility modifications. 3. Environmental and safety work including worker and environmental protection, cleaning and certification of fuel and storage tanks, waste segregation and waste disposal, and safing and remediation/removal of hazardous materials including, but not limited to, friable asbestos and lead. 4. Maximize re-use and recycling of materials. 5. Removal and disposal of abandoned monitoring wells in accordance with state, local, and KSC regulations. 6. Coordination, deactivation, disconnection and removal of electrical, mechanical and communications systems. 7. Removal of building slabs, foundations and associated impervious areas along with site restoration including re-grading and installing sod. 8. Site clearing to access currently inaccessible structures for dismantling and removal. 9. Working at heights of approximately 100 feet to dismantle and remove tall structures. 10. Working under the U.S. Export Control Laws as prescribed in DOD 4160.21-M-1 for the applicable structures and systems.

The NAICS code for this effort is 238910 and the small business standard is $14M.
