Scope of Work
Location: Timpanogos Cave National Monument, American Fork, UT

The Work includes, but is not limited to, construction of a new Visitor Contact Station, road relocation, paving, rock fall mitigation assemblies, retaining wall assemblies, new & revised utilities and service, site construction, and miscellaneous Work required by the contract documents.

More specifically this project will construct, at the cave trailhead, a permanent 2800 sf (approximate net sf) visitor center, and 660 sf (net) concession building with 1200 sf covered eating area. This will replace a 2932 sf "temporary" trailer & attached storage installed in 1992, and a 660 sf concession facility with 1250 sf covered eating area. Relocating these facilities 100 feet or more to the east of present location will reduce the rock fall hazard and get the structures out of the 100-yr floodplain. The visitor center will include a tour ticket sales area, restrooms, storage for staging materials going to the cave and for emergency response equipment, outdoor waiting/staging area plus multi-purpose outdoor space to seat 120 (2 school buses), cooperating association sales area, cave orientation film viewing area, and visitor information/interpretation. The project includes utility extensions and required site work. As part of this project, a Federal Highways project for pedestrian safety will be realigning Utah Highway 92 against American Fork Creek, so that almost all the parking for the visitor contact station will be on the same side of the canyon as the contact station and trailhead. Also as a part of this project, parking will have to be redesigned and reconstructed to adjust to the new highway location and new visitor center location. Rock fall hazard will also be mitigated in building design and location. Sustainable building and energy efficiency requirements for new construction will be met with net-zero energy (site) design and LEED Platinum design goals.

The entire project will be constructed under a single prime contract.

Independently, and not as an agent of the government, the contractor shall provide all services including labor, materials, facilities, tools, travel, and expertise (except as otherwise specified in the construction contract) necessary to construct the project described above.
