Project Description
The Board of Trustees of Eastern Illinois University requests submission of qualifications from interested engineers/architects to design the Renovation of Blair Hall. Blair Hall is the third oldest building on campus and was constructed in 1911. Blair Hall has suffered extensive fire damage to the third floor and roof structure. Additional water damage to the first two floors will require interior demolition and renovation of those floors also. The construction budget for this project has not yet been determined but will be multi-millions and will be provided by insurance coverage and supplemented with local funds to some extent. A roof system is being designed to mitigate additional rain damage.

The successful design firm will consist of experienced and talented architects and engineers knowledgeable in University education facilities and historic preservation. The University will use a structured process to select the design firm as well as oversee the design effort.

The University will begin evaluating submissions from interested design firms on June 15, 2004 with the intent to select a firm by June 30, 2004. Submit three copies of requested Statement of Qualifications to QBS Committee, Facilities Planning and Management, Eastern Illinois University, 600 Lincoln Ave., Charleston, IL 61920-3099. Questions regarding details of the project may be directed to Mr. Rex Hilligoss, Staff Architect, 217-581-3520.
