The Port of Bandon in Oregon is seeking bid proposals from applicants interested to designing and building the port’s marina redevelopment project.

About 30% of the facility has been designed and includes state and federal permits. The project, which must be developed under a design-build contract, would encompass finishing the design and building a new facility to replace the marina and may involve dredging as much as 39,000 cubic yards of sediment from the marina and sport basins, the port said, adding that it “will be separately proposed as an added alternative to the design and construction components.”

Permits for dredging are pending, according to the port.

“The new facility is expected to better respond to the needs of boaters and meet modern safety and environmental specifications,” the port said in a statement.

A mandatory pre-offer visit to the project site is set for 1 p.m. on Sept. 16. The port plans to only consider proposals from those who attend the site visit.

Proposals need to be submitted by 5 p.m. on Oct. 17 at the port office, 390 First Street SW, Bandon, Oregon 97411, or at portmanager@portofbandon.com. Additional information about the Request for Proposals can be found at https://www.portofbandon.com/rfps.
