SEALED BIDS for IFB No.: IFB-16-HHL-011, KANAKALOLOA CEMETERY IMPROVEMENTS Kanakaloloa, Hoolehua, Island of Molokai, County of Maui, State of Hawaii, T.M.K. (2) 5-2-017:003, will be received by the Department of Hawaiian Home Lands (DHHL), at 91-5420 Kapolei Parkway, Kapolei, Hawaii 96707, until 2:00 p.m., Hawaii Standard Time (H.S.T.), June 1, 2016 at which time all bids will be publicly opened and read aloud. Bids received after the time fixed for opening or delivered anywhere other than as specified above will not be considered.

This project consists of furnishing all labor, equipment and supervision to satisfactorily construct a new pavilion, boundary wall, paved road, parking lot, and water line. The cemetery will also be expanded to the north to include additional plots. The pavilion will be a .01 ha (1,250 sq. ft.) open structure just west of Lihi Pali Avenue that will offer visitors shelter from the elements and space to hold gatherings. Footings for the structure are not expected to exceed 1.2 m (4 ft.) deep. The boundary wall will provide a protective barrier around the perimeter of the cemetery, which is currently open to Lihi Pali Avenue. The proposed wall would extend from the existing Hoʻolehua Veteran’s Cemetery to an existing fence line that cuts through the parcel. It would consist of a .9–1.2 m (3–4 ft.) high stacked basalt rock wall along the eastern side of the property. The paved road and parking lot will include paving of existing unimproved paths within the cemetery. This will help prevent erosion and muddy conditions. The pavement would extend approximately 3.7 m (12 ft.) wide, with entry/exit at Lihi Pali Avenue, and two turnaround areas provided. The parking lot will be located near the proposed pavilion. There is currently no potable water on site, and the new water line will extend an existing line that is currently used for landscape irrigation. The new line will run to the proposed pavilion to provide water for flowers and other plants placed on the graves, as well as cleaning from landscaping activities. Excavations for the water line are not expected to exceed 1.2 m (4 ft.) deep. Additional grave plots are planned for the north and west sides of the parcel. Grave depths will be approximately 1.8 m (6 ft.)
