Project Description

This project involves doing a design to infill the entire lower level of Julian Hall, which is currently an open air surface parking lot. The deliverable for this project will be construction of a program space for Cyber Security at the north end of the building.

The College of Applied Science and Technology (CAST) Information Technology Cyber Security staff and Facilities Planning and Construction staff have completed preliminary planning and estimated a total project budget. This preliminary planning and budget information will be shared with the selected design team. The preliminary planning outlines program spaces for the cyber security program.

This Cyber Security plan closes in the first floor parking space at the north end of Julian Hall covered by the building to construct 3 classrooms and 2 collaboration rooms. Classroom 1 will accommodate 36 students, Classroom 2 will accommodate 41 students, and Classroom 3 will accommodate 33 students. This project also constructs new men?s and women?s restroom facilities to comply with applicable building codes and the Illinois plumbing code. Due to the fact that this space is partially submerged underground at the north end of the building a new entrance vestibule link will need to be constructed along the west face of the building to gain access and provide egress to this space from the existing vestibule at the southwest corner of the building. This plan reduces the number of parking spaces on the lower level of Julian from 49 to 30, a net loss of 19 parking spaces. This plan develops a total of 8,786 gross square feet, resulting in 5,812 net useable square feet of space for Cyber Security. Improvement and renovation work includes the creation of classroom and collaboration spaces with all necessary furniture, fixtures, and academic technology equipment

This consultant shall be responsible for further refinement of the shell space design to ensure the entire Julian Hall parking level space will work in concert for total bathrooms required, circulation, exiting, etc., with the planned cyber security space.

Firms interested in submitting their qualifications should have demonstrated knowledge and experience with facilities and programs of this nature. The designers and any sub-consultants will be responsible for developing a comprehensive construction budget for this project.
