The City of St. Albert is requesting proposals from qualified, licensed and professional consulting firms to provide public engagement, detailed design and construction management services for Phases 1 & 2 of Red Willow Park West – Meadowview Area project.
Question Deadline: February 25, 2019, 3:00pm
The successful proponent will be responsible for reviewing and being familiar with the existing 1991 Red Willow Park Urban Park Master Plan, Red Willow Park West Master Plan 2018 and concept plans, and all relevant City studies and management plans. (see Schedule C). In addition, the proponent will complete geotechnical studies and an environmental assessment (including impact studies, wildlife, trees, etc), of the
Meadowview area to determine constructability, limitations, identify timing and impacts of construction. The consulting firm will be required to obtain all required permits for construction, crossing agreements (Atco Gas, Canadian National Railway) and land surveys. These results will identify any limitations or parameters for construction and play a major role in determining constructability of items, phasing, and costing.
A requirement of the project will be the inclusion of an artist as an integral part of the design team. Prior experience working collaboratively with an artist is to be demonstrated, with relevant references provided.
Meadowview Area flanks the Sturgeon River generally from the trestle bridge to Ray Gibbon Drive, and includes several defined places including the St. Albert Heritage Site, Meadowview Ball Diamonds, Grey Nuns White Spruce park (GNWSP), and the developing neighborhoods of Riverside The concept plan for the Meadowview area is intended to provide connectivity to the existing Red Willow Park Trail system and the Riverside neighbourhood with multi-use trails as well as providing nature trails for a quieter experience with a focus on nature appreciation and education. The GNSWP will be a gateway to this area and a
destination for citizens and visitors.
Meadowview Area concept plan includes:
• Red Willow Park multi-use trails and trail gateways including a pedestrian bridge;
• Nature trails and gateways within the GNWSP to create a walking loop and gateways that create controlled entry points from the Red Willow Park trails;
• GNWSP as a park destination that will include picnic area, interpretative gathering area, signage and a nature play area; and
• Areas where naturalization planting will be used to enhance and expand existing
natural features which includes plans for restoration within GNWSP.
Detailed Design is for the Red Willow Park West – Meadowview Area only. The two (2) phases are as follows. Refer to Project Schedule and Appendix B for project timeline and geographic areas of each Phase.
Phase 1: Grey Nuns White Spruce Park (nature trails, gateways, and park amenities)
Phase 2: Trail connections, viewpoints and the pedestrian bridge connection. Trail connections along Sturgeon River starting under Trestle Bridge to Grey Nuns White Spruce Park
