First published Thursday December 7, 2006
The University awarded a contract for consulting services for phased renovations to Kuklinski & Rappe Architects, Chicago, IL for an estimated $20,000.
The vendor will implement renovations to the following areas of the College of Dentistry as proposed in the renovation feasibility study: the vertical transport system; the hot and cold water supply system; and the patient treatment areas for the period December 22, 2006 through June 30, 2007, or from the date of contract exectuion with the option to renew for 2 additional 12-month periods at the same terms and conditions based on satisfactory performance, continuing needs and availability of funds.
This purchase is only economically available from a single source because the compatibility of equipment, accessories, replacement parts, or service is a paramount consideration. Kuklinski and Rappe provided the findings of the Renovation Feasibility Study. A new vendor would have to become an expert on the Study in a relatively short period of time. The study took months to develop and complete, and it contains very intricate details about the stucture and needs of the College of Dentistry. At this point, it would be highly unlikely for another firm to gain the knowledge without incurring major cost to the College.
