Prices are requested to supply and install four-foot chain link fencing for the front of the Parent Child Centre at 4714 48th Street Bonnyville. The above image shows the approximate location – the image is not to scale. Contractor is responsible for exact dimensions and location of the fences, a diagram with dimensions is required as part of the quote provided by the vendor. The quote is to include the type and make of fencing to be supplied. This project must be completed in 2020.
Two smaller man gates facing in towards the main entry will be required. Each area will need a wider gate (may need to be double gates) to allow access for a ride a zero turn lawn tractor.
Two new walkways will need to be build once the fence is installed (shown in pale yellow on diagram). The fencing contractor may choose to bid on these as an optional additional cost. The Town may choose to install these sidewalks using our own resources.
As much as possible the existing trees are to be left in place, some trimming may be required. Necessary removal of trees must be discussed with management. The sign (small red line) is to be outside the fence. Front side of fences should be aligned. Distance from the centre sidewalk as close to even as reasonably possible. Contractor is required to comply with all relevant regulations, safety and OHS standards.
