TERMS OF REFERENCE
FOR THE PROCUREMENT AND IMPLEMENTATION
OF THE PROJECT
“SITE DEVELOPMENT PHASE IV”
UTILIZING THE DESIGN AND BUILD SCHEME

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE


The Philippine Science High School-CAR Campus Dormitory sits atop a hill at an approximate height
of 25 m taken from the main assembly area of the Academic Building. The dormitory started
construction in January of 2004 and is fully operational. It currently houses about ninety (90)
students. Planned development for the PSHS-CARC Dormitory Complex is the construction of another
Dormitory Building to accommodate additional students to cater to the K-12 Program of the Philippine
Government.

Temporary entrance to the dorm is through a walkway from the residential areas at the eastern side
of the dormitory. Construction of a stairway from the service road level to the main entryway of the
existing Dormitory is underway and is expected to commence before the end of November 2015.

The proposed infrastructure project “ Site Development Phase IV “ addresses the need for a service
road leading to the Dormitory. This service road is expected to cater to the needs of the PSHS-CARC
dormers since it is envisioned to provide easy access of motor vehicles for deliveries as well as an
alternate but quick emergency service route for fire trucks and emergency vehicles.

The project implementation will adopt the DESIGN-AND-BUILD SCHEME guidelines as per R.A. 9184
and its Implementing Rules and Regulations.

OBJECTIVE OF THE TERMS OF REFERENCE (TOR)


1. To provide a background information regarding the preparation and submission of the proposed
project to the Designer-Builder;
2. To provide a background information regarding the proposed project which should be handled in
the shortest possible time, at the lowest possible cost and at an acceptable quality and performance
to the Designer-Builder;
3. To outline the “Work” of the Designer-Builder that has to be performed under the terms of its
contract with the PSHS-CARC.
4. To provide penalties in case of breach of Designer-Builder’s obligations
PROJECT DESCRIPTION
The proposed PSHS-CARC Site Development-Phase IV Project is composed of the following work
items :

1. Site evaluation and surveying activities for the proposed roadway;


2. Conduct of a slope stability analysis to identify critical areas along the proposed roadway;
3. Downgrading of the existing slope leading to the PSHS-CARC Dormitory;
4. Construction of a pavement capable of sustaining vehicular traffic and to serve as the service
roadway leading to the Dormitory; and
5. Slope protection on identified critical areas and in areas where there is a need for the appropriate
slope protection system. The proposed slope protection system/s shall be located along the inner
side of the proposed roadway, facing the school premises, to prevent settlement of the roadbed.

This project shall be designed on the basis of safety, functionality, feasibility and aesthetics.

CONCEPTUAL DESIGN
The proposed project shall have two main phases: the design phase and the construction phase, and
shall put emphasis on the most feasible and functional development scheme for the path leading to
the PSHS-CARC Dormitory.

The design phase shall include conducting an appropriate ground survey of the proposed pathway
and conducting a slope stability evaluation, which will form the basis of the proposed roadway and
slope protection system.

The completed structure shall be a pavement which will serve as the main entryway for service and
emergency vehicles leading to the dormitory. This pavement shall be constructed on a downgraded
slope which is protected by the appropriate slope protection system from the base (service gate level)
to the arrival point at the ground area of the PSHS-CARC dormitory premises.

The proposed slope protection system must provide ground support to the expected vehicular traffic
loads absorbed by the proposed roadway. In a similar manner, adequate provisions for drainage of
surface run-off from the Dormitory area must also be considered in the overall design.

PROJECT SITE
1. General

The proposed site development is to be constructed within the PSHS-CARC Campus at Purok 12,
Irisan, Baguio City. Two main elements comprise the proposed project : (1) construction of roadway
to provide vehicular access to the Dormitory; and (2) construction of an appropriate slope protection
system to safely absorb vehicular loads transmitted by the roadway.
The proposed roadway shall have a minimum width of 4.00 m and a length of 106.00 m. The total
construction surface area of the proposed slope protection system as well as the average slope angle
and height shall depend on the location of the critical areas, as identified in the slope stability
analysis.
The incorporation of drainage provisions for the proposed roadway and the proposed slope protection
system shall also be considered important inclusions to the proposed project.
The project site is located towards the southwestern portion of the existing Academic Building.

2. Preliminary Documents to be provided by the Owner

The following documents will be provided by the Owner as preliminary data for the project:
a. Campus site development plan; and
b. GIS-based topographic map of the area

3. Preliminary Geotechnical Survey and Mapping

The Contractor shall conduct a site mapping and geotechnical survey of the proposed site. A
complete slope stability analysis shall serve as the basis for the design of the appropriate slope
protection system to be recommended on identified critical areas.

PROJECT DEFINITION
The Owner/Procuring Entity does not guarantee that the preliminary data provided are fully correct,
up to date and applicable to the project. The Contractor shall solely be responsible for the accuracy
and applicability of all data that it will use in its Design-and-Build proposal and services. It shall also
be responsible for the integrity of the detailed engineering design and the performance of the
structure irrespective of the approval of the Owner/Procuring Entity. It shall also be solely responsible
for the design and liable for structural defects and/or failures of the completed project.
The Contractor shall conceptualize a site development solution that will enhance mobility and
promote vehicular access to the dormitory, and at the same time provide a safe, comfortable, durable
and aesthetically pleasing campus environment.
1. General Requirement

The 4.00m – wide roadway shall have a length of 106.00 m and shall be constructed on a
downgraded slope protected by the appropriate slope protection system. Drainage provisions shall be
incorporated in the design and construction of the roadway and the slope protection system.
2. Project Location Map
3. Existing Site Plan
4. Proposed Project Area
5. General Concept
5.1 Site Development and Architectural Detail/Landscape Design Concept

Site development and provisions for aesthetics / architectural / landscape shall be based on green-
building concepts and shall be in consonance with the existing design concept of the entire site.
Drainage shall likewise be a consideration in this design concept as surface runoff as well as a small
amount of subsurface water is still expected to flow from the dormitory area. The expected amount
of water shall be directed
towards the existing catch basin located at the edge of the fence near the existing service gate.
The landscape component shall utilize easily propagating plants, grasses, trees or shrubs which will
mask the “hard” face of a concrete or stone retaining wall, whichever the case may be.

5.2 Structural Design Concept

The proposed roadway shall be constructed on properly compacted earth base, compacted to at least
95% of the maximum dry density. It shall be designed to support loads from the expected vehicular
traffic that it shall cater to. Additionally, provisions for drainage of surface run-off shall also be
incorporated in the design.
The structural design of the proposed slope stabilization / protection method shall take into
consideration the results of the soil geotechnical investigation and slope stability analysis.
Structural framing, foundation materials or anchorage materials shall be composed of reinforced
concrete and structural steel. These materials shall be locally available and shall conform to the
standards set forth by the ASTM. An economical design shall likewise be produced, taking into
consideration the allowable factor of safety for structural design as well as for slope stability.
Should the slope factor of safety be less than 1.0, structural design shall extend to providing the
appropriate slope stabilization system to be introduced in the identified area prior to the construction
of the proposed slope protection system
