RE: 



South End Urban Renewal Project 



Dear Mr. Reavis: 

We wish to express our interest in providing design services 
for the above mentioned project. 

As a complete architectural engineering consultant firm, 
Bayside Engineering is fully qualified and experienced in all areas 
of park and recreational design, street design, and resident 
inspection needed for your project. This includes design of ball and 
playing fields, running tracks, benches and bleachers, ball courts, 
swimming pools, parking, paving, lighting, fencing, landscaping and 
all other design requirements of this type of urban renewal project. 

Examples of our work range from the multi-million dollar 
Metropolitan Schoolboy Track Facility, Neponset Circle, Boston, to a 
golf course in Mashpee, MA. These and other projects listed within 
this proposal demonstrate our design versatility and our flexibility 
and cooperation with clients . 

Bayside Engineering has performed numerous resident engineer 
services. We were the designer and full-time resident engineer for 
the Rockingham Park Racetrack in Salem, New Hampshire. As the 
overseer of this $12,000,000 Performance Bond, we were responsible 
for bringing this project in on time and within financial 
restrictions. We also performed similar type full-time services for 
the reconstruction of the Massport Bus Ramp located at Logan 
International Airport. We have also recently completed resident 
engineering services for a major urban renewal project at the 
Charlestown Navy Yard for the B.R.A. and are currently performing 
resident engineering services for another project, both of which are 
full-time services . 



Located in South Boston, we are easily accessible to the 
project sites . Our current workload enables us to offer our key 
personnel, as well as full qualified and experienced support 
personnel . 

We appreciate the opportunity to submit this proposal and are 
hopeful of gaining an interview. 

Very truly yours , 

BAYSIDE ENGINEERING ASSOCIATES, INC.

RELATED EXPERIENCE 
& REFERENCES 



PUBLIC AGENCY EXPERIENCE 



The abilities of the Bayside design team to work. 
with public agencies have been proven during our 
previous activities in downtown Boston at the Spring 
Lane project and the historic reconstruction of the 
Blackstone Block (Fanueil Hall area). For several 
years we have been engaged in design and inspection at 
the Charlestown Navy Yard, Site Preparation Contract 
No. 3. During this period we have worked with private 
developers, utility companies, and State and City 
agencies (including DEQE) . We are completely familiar 
with the entire design process and the construction 
sequence required for BRA projects, in particular, 
projects at the Charlestown Navy Yard. We are 
currently providing inspection services for Shipyard 
Park, Phase III on a full-time basis. We are confident 
of our abilities to complete the proposed scope of 
services in a timely fashion since personnel available 
for this project are totally familiar with the site and 
its special requirements. We would be available to 
start work immediately upon notification from the BRA. 

We would be pleased to meet with you personally to 
further describe our qualifications or to answer any 
questions you may have. 



SIZE AND ORGANIZATIONAL STRUCTURE 
OF 
BAYSIDE ENGINEERING ASSOCIATES, INC. 

Since 1967, Bayside Engineering Associates has been 
providing professional design and engineering services for the 
construction of public works projects including waterfront 
facilities. We have provided these services to the Massachusetts 
Department of Public Works, the Massachusetts Port Authority and 
a great many cities and towns. 

All of our principals and senior staff members are 
registered professional engineers and most hold Masters Degrees 
in Engineering. Our office in Boston is fully staffed (currently 
forty-one engineers, architects and technicians) and equipped 
with computers, word processors and other design aids to provide 
you with high quality design services. 

Our firm is so organized that principals and senior staff 
members actively participate in and contribute their expertise to 
all of our projects. At the initiation of a project, design time 
flow charts, fee budgets and construction budgets are very 
carefully prepared in order to monitor and control the design 
activities. Project meetings are held weekly in order to ensure 
strict adherence to these schedules and budgets. In addition our 
project managers maintain a new close liaison with our clients in 
order to keep them informed on the financial and time controls of 
the project. 



RECENT RELATED EXPERIENCE 

Charlestown Navy Yard, Charlestown 

Bayside Engineering under contract with the Boston Redevelopment 
Authority, has recently completed construction documents for the 
Charlestown Navy Yard Project. The construction program provides for 
utilities, streets, sidewalks, installation of water mains, sanitary 
lines, surface drainage lines, street lighting, signs and landscaping. 
Bayside coordinated work with building development in the area and 
provided supervision during construction. 

Revitalization of Blackstone Block, Boston 

Blackstone Block, in the Haymarket district of historic Boston, is one of 
the oldest existing street networks in the U.S. and has been designated 
as a landmark area. Bayside recently completed design work relating to 
street and sidewalk improvements for this area including historic 
pavement treatment, installation of vehicular barriers and a new street 
lighting system. The project required full coordination with many public 
agencies. The final design successfully reflects the history and 
atmosphere of this unique area as well as being safe and attractive for 
pedestrians and property owners. 

Reconstruction of Spring Lane, Boston 

The reconstruction of Spring Lane, a pedestrian walkway, was designed for 
the Boston Redevelopment Authority in 1982, construction was completed in 
1983. Located between Washington and Devonshire Streets in downtown 
Boston, Spring Lane illustrated Bayside's streetscaping abilities in a 
hj.stQric c^ity area. The lane is now a pleasant pedestrian walkthrough 
featuring brick paving to match the buildings along both sides and new 
lighting system with period light posts. The close proximity of the 
ajoining buildings with basements below the lane surface necessitated 
careful design consideration. 

North Harvard Project, Allston 

Bayside Engineering was responsible for street design and site 
development of a major urban renewal project at North Harvard Street in 
Allston, MA. Project included civil, site, grading, utility relocation 
and installation and new lighting system for a parking area for a large 
urban housing complex located at Western Avenue and North Harvard Street 
in Allston. 

Restoration of the Muster House, Charlestown 

Bayside is currently designing the restoration of the historic Muster 
House at the Charlestown Navy Yard. The building, which is over a century 
old, is an octagonal three story brick structure with an ornate cupola 
roof. Our designs include repointing, window replacements, roof repairs, 
reguilding of ornamental fixtures and repainting. Work on the surrounding 
grounds include landscaping, replacement of stone pavement and bollards 
and sidewalks . 

Revitalization of Post Office Square, Boston 

Bayside is currently providing ornamental lighting designs for the Post 
Office Square area and Spring Lane in Historic Downtown Boston.

AFFIRMATIVE ACTION 



EQUAL EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITY/AFFIRMATIVE ACTION PROGRAM 

1987 
PREFACE 

Bayside Engineering Associates, Inc. is committed to offering 
employment, training, and promotion opportunities without regard to 
an applicant's or employee's race, color, religion, handicap, 
national origin, veterans status, age or sex. 

Our Affirmative Action Program is designed to accomplish two 
objectives: (1) to reaffirm our continued commitment to a program 
of merit employment policies and (2) to assert leadership within 
the community and to put forth the maximum effort to achieve a 
balanced work force, reflective of the population within our 
business or recruitment area. 

Bayside further recognizes that the effective application of 
a policy of merit employment involved more than just a policy 
statement and will, therefore, undertake a program of affirmative 
action to make known that equal employment opportunities are 
available on the basis of individual merit, and to encourage all 
persons to seek employment with Bayside and to strive for 
advancement on this basis. 

The Management of Bayside Engineering Associates, Inc. has 
prepared this written Affirmative Action Plan on a strictly 
voluntary basis. In the preparation of this Affirmative Action 
Plan, the terminology used in E.O. 11246, and its implementing 
regulations, has been used as a guide by Bayside. The use of such 
terminology should not be construed as an admission by Bayside, in 
whole or in part, that in fact Bayside is in violation of Federal, 
State, or local fair employment practice laws. 

In developing and implementing this Affirmative Action 
Program, Bayside has been guided by its established policy of 
providing equal employment opportunity. The goals which Bayside 
has formulated in conjunction with this Affirmative Action Program 
are not intended as rigid, inflexible quotas that must be met, but 
rather as targets toward which Bayside will apply every good faith 
effort . 



AFFIRMATIVE ACTION POLICY 



I. It is the policy of Bayside Engineering Associates, Inc. to: 

A. Recruit, hire, train, and promote persons in all job 
titles, without regard to race, color, religion, handicap, 
national origin, veteran status, age or sex, except where 
age or sex are a bona fide occupational qualification as 
stated under the Civil Rights Act of 1964, under Executive 
Order 11246, as amended. 

B. Base decisions on employment so as to further the 
Principle of Equal Employment Opportunity. 

C. Insure that promotion decisions are in accord with 
principles of equal employment opportunity by imposing 
only valid requirements for promotional opportunities. 

D. Insure that all personnel actions such as compensation, 
benefits, transfers, company sponsored training, 
education, tuition assistance and social and recreational 
programs will be administered without regard to race, 
color, religion, age, sex, handicap, or national origin. 

II. The firm has an Affirmative Action Officer, Manuel A. Priante, 
Personnel Officer, who coordinates our Affirmative Action 
Policy and Programs. The content, construction, reporting and 
monitoring of the programs are administered by Mr. Priante 
and, therefore, all inquiries concerning Equal Employment 
Oppor t uni ty/ Af f i rma t i ve Action should be directed to him in 
the Personnel Department . 

I I I. Our affirmative Action Program is designated to accomplish two 
objectives: (1) To reaffirm our continued commitment to a 
program of merit employment policies and (2) To assert 
leadership within the community and to put forth the maximum 
effort to achieve a balanced work force, reflective of the 
population within our business or recruitment area. 

IV. We are committed to making steady and measurable progress 
toward the achievement of our Affirmative Action goals. The 
ultimate responsibility for successfully fulfilling the intent 
of this policy lies with every Manager, Supervisor, and 
Employee to actively support the philosophy and policies 
contained in our Equal Employment Opportunity/Affirmative 
Action Program.

Personnel Officer
