DISCUSSION
The City of Long Beach (City) has embarked on a rebuild program for the City's marinas utilizing loan funds from the State of California, Department of Boating and Waterways (DBW) and funds accumulated in the Marina Fund. DBW offers loan funds for new and rebuild marinas, with terms of 4.5 percent interest over a 30-year period. Over the past several years, City Council has authorized DBW marina rebuild loan applications totaling $98,223,000. Of the $98 million in loan requests, DBW has approved $55,823,000. To date, the City has utilized $2,650,000 to build Basin 8 in the Alamitos Bay Marina (ABM), and $31,718,000 for the rebuild of the Shoreline and Rainbow Marinas. The remaining balance of $21,455,000 will be used to begin the phased rebuild of ABM.

In October 2007, a design-build Request for Proposal for the rebuild of ABM was issued. Two proposals were received, including one from a Long Beach firm, Connolly-Pacific Company. TranSystems, the construction manager for this project, as approved by the City Council on December 20, 2005, assisted the City in reviewing the proposals. Based on the proposals and subsequent formal presentations, the evaluation committee selected Bellingham Marine Industries, Inc. (Bellingham), of Dixon, California.

In addition, the Bellingham bid contained subcontractors that are local, including Moffatt and Nichol Engineering and Manson Construction.

Bellingham has over 50 years of experience in the marina construction...
