Illinois State University (ISU) is seeking professional planning, architectural, interior design and engineering services from firms who have experience in higher education building design and construction of this typology. ISU is planning a new Mennonite College of Nursing Simulation Lab Building on ISUs campus in Normal, Illinois. ISU has completed programming for this project. This program information will be shared with the A/ID/E firms upon selection and engagement for this project. It is anticipated that Programming and Schematic Design verification will be required for this engagement.
Architectural and/or engineering firms interested in submitting their qualifications should have demonstrated knowledge, experience, and expertise with higher education facilities of this typology. The designers and any required sub-consultants will be responsible for developing design, construction administration services, total project budget and a schedule for this project.
Mennonite College of Nursing, working in collaboration with ISU Facilities Services Planning, Design and Construction developed a program for a two story 20,017 gross square foot building. This new building will be placed on the site of two ISU owned properties, immediately west of the existing ISU MCN simulation building and joined with building connectors to allow the new building and the existing building to function as one facility. Implementation of this project will require, demolition of the two ISU owned residential properties and construction of the new two-story Mennonite College of Nursing Simulation Lab building and all associated required site improvement work.
The proposed Mennonite College of Nursing has been programmed to accommodate new additional nursing Simulation Space, Skills Lab Space, Health Assessment Space, Graduate Health Assessment Space, Nursing Simulation Space, Debrief Space, Faculty Offices, and Building Support Spaces.
