a contract for design fees for Barsema Alumni Visitors Center to
HKM Architects and Planners Inc., Arlington Heights, IL
The new Barsema Alumni and Visitors Center at Northern Illinois University was developed, designed, and constructed through the NIU Foundation and funded by private donations.
HKM Architects and Planners Inc. was contracted by the NIU Foundation to provide all architectural and engineering services necessary to construct the new Barsema Alumni and Visitors Center. The fees paid to HKM by the NIU Foundation were all inclusive with the exception of any fees earned from the specification of products and preparation of bidding documents necessary to procure certain fixtures, furnishings, and equipment.
In participation with the NIU Foundation on this project, the Board of Trustees of Northern Illinois University approved the use of university funds for the specification and procurement of those necessary fixtures, furnishings, and equipment for the new building.
This purchase is only economically available from a single source because the
University has determined that it is in the best interest of the project to contract with the primary designers, HKM Architects, for these additional services required for procuring F, F, & E in order to control quality and capture efficiencies in design coordination.
