Project Description
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: Coal Handling System Renovation
Project Budget: $3,300,000


Description of Project:

The coal handling system renovation project at Southern Illinois University Carbondale has been developed to address several areas of concern regarding the efficient and effective storage and handling of coal for use in the central steam plant?s CFB boiler. Currently, the University's coal supply is stored on the ground, next to U.S. Highway 51.

The proposed infrastructure improvement project for the coal storage and handling will consist of a new 2000-ton silo and a new conveyor system to elevate the coal from the delivery area to the silo, and from the silo to the boiler plant.

The contained storage silo will protect the environment from airborne coal dust and coal run-off. The silo will also shield the coal from the environment, minimizing moisture content and eliminating ground level washout. In addition, the silo eliminates the unsightly existence of a relatively large coal pile immediately adjacent to the much-traveled U.S. Highway 51.

The new conveyor will allow a much steeper incline for moving the coal into the silo and to the boiler(s). This steeper incline serves to free up valuable site space that can be used for additional coal truck maneuverability or other more efficient uses. The new storage silo and associated coal handling system will be constructed in such a manner as to allow for future plant expansion.

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 seven copies of their letter of interest, documentation of qualifications, and current CDB Form 255 by 3:30 p.m. on Friday, July 23, 2004 addressed to:
