The Hanford Tank Waste Treatment and Immobilization Plant (WTP) is a complex of radioactive waste treatment processing facilities designed and constructed by Bechtel National, Inc. for the Department of Energy (DOE). The facility will process the Hanford Site tank waste and convert the waste into a stable glass form.

The Project site is located in the 200 East Area of the Hanford Reservation near Richland, Washington, along the Columbia River. The site elevation varies from 662 to 684 feet above mean sea level. Ambient temperature range is -23 degrees F minimum to 113 degrees F maximum, with relative humidity of 5% minimum to 100% maximum. The project design life is 40 years.

The SUBCONTRACTOR shall supply all labor, supervision, technical, engineering and administrative services, materials, tools, consumables (including safety supplies), construction equipment, transportation, temporary facilities (unless indicated elsewhere in the subcontract documents as supplied by others), insurance, inspection, testing, certifications, receiving, handling and storage of SUBCONTRACTOR’s furnished penetration seal materials, and any other items of Work that may become necessary to provide complete systems for through-penetration firestops and seals, fire-resistive joints, and joint sealants as defined by Subcontract Documents.

Work shall include but not be limited to furnish, installation, inspection, and, where required, the system design of unique penetrations seals and justification via engineering judgment and analysis (EJ/EA) or the testing of said systems; for the Low Active Waste (LAW) Vitrification Building, LAW Annex, and the Analytical Laboratory (LAB).

The through-penetration firestop systems and perimeter fire resistive joint systems include materials that resist the spread of fire, passage of smoke and other hot gasses, and the movement of air and water in accordance with the project specifications, drawings and penetration seal schedule. Work scope includes the following:

1. Penetration seals for penetrating commodities through fire-rated walls, floors, and ceiling assembly openings.

2. Gap seals between perimeter edge of 2-hr fire-rated concrete floor assemblies and exterior non-combustible insulated wall panels.

3. Penetration seals for penetrating commodities through non-fire-rated walls, floors, and ceilings assemblies.

Some of these systems will be required to function in a radioactive environment as well as resist the effects of high temperature, chemical exposure and some level of pipe movement.

SUBCONTRACTOR has the responsibility to obtain all applicable federal, state and local permits, licenses, inspections and approvals required for the installation. QE48 Web Posting Form 24590-AF00295 (Rev 1, 10/12/10)) Page 2 of 4

SUBCONTRACTOR shall be required to set up temporary facilities at a Laydown Area provided by CONTRACTOR (including required electrical utility connections) at the Project site to perform Penetration Seal Work. In addition, the SUBCONTRACTOR shall have the capability to perform any repair and touch-up work related to the penetration seal Work.

SUBCONTRACTOR shall furnish all equipment necessary to move material to working areas.

SUBCONTRACTOR shall be responsible for coordinating work activities with other installation trades.

SUBCONTRACTOR shall be responsible for mobilizing equipment and materials as required to complete the Work in accordance with the Subcontract schedule milestones and approved baseline schedule.

The SUBCONTRACTOR shall be responsible for coordinating work activities with other installation trades and complying with all WTP site safety requirements.

The Request for Proposal (RFP) will include Facility Penetration Seal Schedules generated by the CONTRACTOR for both LAW and the LAB that includes detailed data for each modeled penetrating item, as well as quantity estimates for non-modeled penetrating items such a field run conduit, instrument air tubing, sprinkler piping, and miscellaneous steel (pipe supports, bracing, etc.) The modeled commodities data will include detailed information required to specify a tested seal design including: location, elevation, size and material of construction of the penetrating object, size of opening, wall type, fire rating of wall, pipe movement, and whether a “T” or “W” seal is required. The non-modeled information includes quantity and type of commodity, material, and size. The RFP will also include supplemental information such as technical specifications, design drawings (sample Plant Design General Arrangement plans and Architectural drawings). The SUBCONTRACTOR will be expected to provide at least one on-site Fire Protection Professional (FPP) to work with the WTP Project team to secure additional information concerning penetrating items, perform construction site walk downs of the installed penetrating commodities, and coordinate the identification of listed and/or tested designs to seal the penetrating commodity. The FPP will also coordinate engineering judgments (EJ) and engineering analyses (EA) for penetrating items for which listed and/or, where necessary, tested designs do not exist or coordinate the testing of unique sealing requirements. to demonstrate performance of unique seal configurations. CONTRACTOR shall provide access to the Penetration Seal Schedule, the current WTP Project model for LAW and the LAB; assistance in the use of the 3D model; and facilitate interfacing with other project disciplines, trades and subcontractors.

The WTP Project Facilities are described as follows:

Low Active Waste – The Low-Active Waste (LAW) building is a five-story structure of approximately 75,000 square feet footprint. The building consists of a basement constructed of three to five foot thick concrete walls, supporting the other floors. In general, each floor is made of poured concrete on steel deck supported by steel frame. Above ground, the building exterior walls are constructed with insulated metal panels and the interior walls of gypsum board and cast-in-place concrete.

Low Active Waste Annex – The LAW Annex is a mixed use office type (business) occupancy, two-story structure with a gross floor area of approximately 20,480 ft2, with a footprint approximately 80 ft wide x 128 ft long, located on the north side of the main LAW process building. Exterior envelope and structure is similar to the LAW with gypsum board interior walls

Analytical Laboratory (LAB)- 54 ft high with a second level mechanical room. The building has a steel frame structure with exterior insulated metal siding. In general, the second floor is made of poured concrete on steel deck supported by steel frame. The building is constructed to accommodate concrete encased Hot Cell Bays, and gypsum board walled Radiological Lab Area.


Programmatic Quality Assurance requirements for subcontracts performed in the WTP Jobsite will be “NP” (non permanent or temporary work, generally no QA Program required), “CM” (commercial quality based the requirements in DOE Order 414.1C), or “QL” (nuclear level quality based on the requirements in ASME NQA-1 2000). Bechtel may require, as an element of bidder pre-qualification, submission of a representative sample QA QE48 Web Posting Form 24590-AF00295 (Rev 1, 10/12/10)) Page 3 of 4
