The proposed $31.3 million project will be a 116,130 gsf structure that will include technology-enhanced and smart classrooms, seminar rooms, a lecture hall, computer laboratories, and office space for academic programs now located in Brookens Library and in other buildings located on the east side of campus. The new building will allow consolidation of all academic programs and key student services into permanent buildings in the center of campus, contributing further to the formation of a campus quadrangle. The buildings now located on the quadrangle are Brookens Library, the Public Affairs Center, and the Health & Sciences Building. The campus master plan calls for the development of more green space in the quadrangle area in order to create a collegial environment and social atmosphere. The new building will also permit Brookens Library to reclaim space now occupied by academic programs for crucial expansion of its collections and technology-related services. Also, the addition of new technology-enhanced and smart classrooms will raise University of Illinois at Springfield to a more advanced level of technological sophistication in delivering high quality education to its students.
The current schedule is to complete planning by May 2002, start construction in July 2002, and complete construction by January 2004. The scope of services for the Construction Manager will include, but are not limited to, preconstruction phase services, including value engineering and cost estimating; contractor prequalification for bidding; and construction management during construction.
