Nuisance Building Demolition


The City of Sunset Hills Public Works Department is soliciting bids for the removal of the building located at 9951 Rock Alva that has been declared a Public Nuisance.   This includes the removal of any associated debris contained within the building, the removal of any Asbestos Containing Material (ACM) noted, the proper coordination through the building permit process with St. Louis County to assure proper utility disconnection and eventually the entire removal of structures complete with the associated foundation.  

The building exists on property now owned by Great Rivers Greenway.  The building owner was notified to remove the building with subsequent deadlines passed.  The property is not occupied.  

Sealed bids will be received until 10:00am; Thursday, December 21, 2017.  Specifications and plans are available online at or at the Sunset Hills City Hall at 3939 South Lindbergh Boulevard at no cost.  

The City reserves the right to reject any or all bids, waive technicalities, to award on any bid that is most advantageous and to make investigations concerning the experience and ability of the bidder to perform the work.   Minimum wages according to the current Missouri State Department of Labor Relations must be paid, as contained in the bid documents.  Bids should be accompanied by a bid surety in the form of a certified check or bid bond for 10% of the bid total.  

A pre-bid meeting will be held on Tuesday, December 19, 2017 at 10am.
