WHAT'S NEW?

Request for Proposals

Geotechnical Analysis

Tr’ondëk Hwëch’in is advancing land use planning for Settlement Land parcels. A geotechnical analysis is now required for parcels C-3B and C-42B. TH is looking for a high-level geotechnical analysis to inform the development of conceptual land use plans for these parcels.

The intention of this RFP is to receive a bid to a maximum of $10,000 with a proposal describing what geotechnical information will be collected and how. This contract is considered the preliminary geotechnical phase of this planning initiative and should not be interpreted as a request for a thorough geotechnical drilling program.

KEY REQUIREMENTS

  • Previous work in and knowledge of the Klondike Valley
  • Resume of completed projects and geotechnical experience
  • Ability to complete the field work and provide the final report in the 2017 field season.

Previous work experience with Yukon Self-Governing First Nations is an asset.

Tendering process ends on August 25 at 4:00 p.m. Pacific Daylight Saving Time. Proposal with bid can be received by mail, email, fax or handed in person at reception.
