The Board of Trustees of Southern Illinois University hereby requests letters of interest from Architects/Engineers to provide professional services for the following University project:

Project Name: Student Health Service Facility
Project Budget: $8,000,000

Description of Project: The Student Health Programs currently occupy approximately 32,000 square feet of space in two buildings in the Greek Row complex on the Carbondale campus. The current space, which contains insufficient patient exam rooms, limited accessibility for disabled students, and aging mechanical systems was originally designed as residence halls and was assigned as a temporary location for the Health Service in the mid 1960s.

The proposed new facility will be an approximately 40,000 square foot, two-story building located at the southeast corner of the Student Recreation Center and will house the Student Health Program operations from the Greek Row area as well as the Student Emergency Dental services, currently located in the College of Applied Sciences and Arts. This ADA compliant facility will include patient exam rooms, office space, and an educational classroom space for cooperative programming with academic disciplines such as sports medicine, rehabilitation services, and physical therapy. The new location will be more accessible to major student resident areas, both on campus and in the Carbondale community. Independent mechanical systems and an updated building design will allow the facility to play an important role in campus disaster response efforts and the provision of medical service to the campus community.

The design and construction budgets are as follows:

  • Design Budget: $725,000
  • Construction Budget: $6,525,000
Only those firms which meet the following qualifications will be considered for selection:
  • Licensed to practice as an Architect/Engineer in the State of Illinois
  • Prequalified with the State of Illinois Capital Development Board (CDB)
The following project-related criteria will be used to evaluate the consulting firms requesting consideration for selection:
  • Prior firm experience with similar projects
  • Appropriate staff size and disciplines
  • Prior performance of firm and its consultants with completed projects at Southern Illinois University and with other State Higher Educational Institutions
Consulting firms should submit three copies of their letter of interest, documentation of qualifications, and current CDB Form 255, by Monday, August 5, 2002, addressed to:
