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: Roof Renovations - General Campus
Project Budget: $500,000

Description of Project

This project will continue replacement of roofs that have failed and are no longer repairable. The University owns approximately 525 buildings with a wide variety of roofing materials protecting them from the elements. Recent roof projects have now successfully received 15 and 20-year roof warranties, as opposed to the ten-year warranties on earlier projects. A concerted effort is being made to provide additional slope on campus roofs through the addition of pre-manufactured trusses and standing seam metal on the campus? smaller buildings. The University is requesting funding for the following roof projects: Quigley Auditorium, Studio Arts, Faner A2, A6, A7, A8, A14, Old Baptist Foundation, Shryock, CASA C and other various roofs.

All of the roofs are over 15 years old and are either built-up roofing systems or ballasted EPDM roofs. This project will remove the existing roofs and replace them with new, single-ply roof systems that will include tapered insulation underlayment to avoid ponding water. The completion of these roof replacements will protect the contents and building systems from further damage.

The design and construction budgets are as follows:

  • Design Budget: $50,000
  • Construction Budget: $450,000
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 six copies of their letter of interest, documentation of qualifications, and current CDB Form 255, by December 22, 2003, addressed to:
