Addendum #1 (10/7/2019) Picture

Q#1: Is this an indoor or outdoor range?

  • If indoor, do you have doors leading to the range that is at least 3’6” wide?
  • If outdoor, are the ranges easily accessible? Is it grass? Dirt? Asphalt? Etc.
    • Is the rubber wet?

A:  Lake County Bullet Trap Training Range is located outdoors. The range is easily accessible the entrance consists of asphalt.  The range consist of 62% asphalt and 38% grass. The rubber is contained under an awning.  Any moisture is due to environmental condensation. See above picture link.

A:  Lake County does not have bays and the range is outdoors.  See above picture link. 


Q#3: How wide is each range in feet?

A:  The range is configured in a “U” shape.  The middle section is approximately 105’ long, 10’ wide, and 7’ tall and is the widest section.  Both sides are approximately 45’ long, 10’ wide, and 7’ tall.

The hopper is 9’ tall by 2’ wide.


Q#4: Do you know how many rounds are shot into each lane per year?

A:  The number of shots is unknown.


Q#5: Would you like to add flame retardant to the rubber?

Addendum #2

Q#1: How will the recycling lead credit be handled?

             MT2’s recommends a 50%/50% split of the net value1/ of the lead. This is mutually beneficial to both parties as the more lead recovered, the more profit earned for Contractor and Client

             Additional options would be for the department to keep 100% of the value of the lead, but this will increase the project cost as the lead proceeds are used by Contractor’s to offset pricing; the other side is that the contractor keeps 100% of the value of the lead, but this can be difficult to estimate and guarantee lead totals and therefor difficult to offer best value pricing to the client   

A:  We would like to do a 50%/50% split. However, we would like Lake County Sheriff’s Office’s portion to be credited to our invoice. 


Q#2: Section 4.0 on page 14 references prevailing wage please provide the current wage schedule

A: Please reference page 10 of the bid document.  Lake County has provided the link to access Lake County Prevailing Wage Rates posted on 7/15/2019.


Q#3: Is there another Site Visit scheduled for the project?

A: Yes, Next scheduled site visit is Wednesday, October 16, 2019 at 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM at 15900 Russell Road, Russell, IL 60075.

Q#3: Per I. Scope of Work, A. Initial Maintenance (Contract Year 1) 1. Bullet Trap System Maintenance, b. (page 13), please provide the O&M inspection instructions and recommended procedures to adhere to. If not available, how will this performance be measured?

1/Net value is determined as the recycled value of the material less the same percent of the cost of containers, pallets, handling equipment, transport, and applicable taxes, to be used to offset project costs

A:  Specifications, Section 1:  Scope of Work, Subsection A:  Bullet Trap System Maintenance, Item d:
