Project Description
The Board of Trustees of Southern Illinois University governing Southern Illinois University Edwardsville (SIUE) hereby requests letters of interest and statement of qualifications from architectural lead teams interested in providing third-party consulting services for an academically focused performing arts complex on the Edwardsville campus. The initial scope of work will include a scoping exercise and a project budget estimate for an auditorium to accommodate theater and dance for approximately 600 seats and an adjoining music hall to accommodate music ensemble performances for approximately 400 seats. The scope will also include the renovation of an existing 400 seat theater into a classroom and recital space once the new complex is built. Supplemental work beyond the initial scope of work will take place in the distant future when funding is identified. The entire project will be submitted for funding to the State of Illinois through the Capital RAMP process and, when funded, administered by the Capital Development Board.
