The City of Huntsville, Texas is seeking a qualified crane/forklift, rigging and transport service to relocate 44 presidential busts from Houston, TX (2401 Nance St) to Huntsville, TX (The exact street location within the city limits of Huntsville is yet to be determined). Each bust has an average total weight of 6,800 pounds, 16 feet tall, 13 feet in length and 8 feet wide. The busts are to be transported in 2 main pieces, the head and the shoulder sections. Each head averages 3,000 pounds, 8 feet tall and 7 feet wide. The shoulder section averages 3,800 pounds, 8 feet tall and 8 feet wide. The busts material composition is comprised of a concrete, fiberglass/mesh and steel frame all of which is considered highly fragile. The total value of the all 44 busts is in the $4.3 million range. The requested service will be considered all-inclusive. It is the responsibility of the firm to provide the most secure and efficient method to load and deliver the busts undamaged to Huntsville. Only firms that have the proper equipment and staff for crane/forklifts & rigging service at both sites with a transport service will be considered. In short, the City does not perceive this to be a conventional transport job. The presidential busts are one of a kind and are irreplaceable. The awarded firm must be able to provide the same care and values that the City has. The City is prepared to begin the project summer 2016.No additional specifications were given.
