In developing the Master Plan, the selected firm will provide a program that will help define long range plans and operational goals for the MUC and SSC, including renovation and potential expansion based on needs and analysis. The Master Plan should also address issues and needs related to changing campus needs and lifestyles, space needs for the campus community, dining services enhancements, the MUC�??s aging infrastructure (i.e., structural, electrical, HVAC), integration of both attached buildings, and code compliance. At the University�??s sole discretion, the University may contract separately with the selected consultant to provide basic services for the actual architectural design for any or all of the projects indicated in the Master Plan. Further design and construction of projects will be dependent on the University developing a successful funding plan. A more detailed Scope of Work is included as one of the attachments to this announcement. The project will be funded by Morris University Center revenues and student fee and Student Success Center student fee.
The following related criteria will be among those used to evaluate the firms and/or teams requesting consideration for selection: location of firm, prior experience with similar projects, staff size appropriate to the scope, related State experience, team structure, current workload, BEP status, and history of accurate cost information.
