NIU is accepting submittals of qualifications by architects for a facility master plan including program analysis, preliminary design and estimation. Within the scope of work is the renovation of the Holmes Student Center (approximately 380,000 GSF) on NIU's DeKalb Campus. The project will require assessment of existing conditions and coordination with university staff to design a working master plan that will act as a guide for NIU to be implemented over the next decade in a series of phased construction projects. The selected firm must provide:

  • A comprehensive master plan for the Holmes Student Center
  • Estimates of anticipated construction costs
  • Alternative program solutions with schematic design drawings
The desired planning period will begin in the summer of 2004, with a building master plan being complete for submittal prior to January 2005.
