The project consists of the planning and construction of a new College of Medicine Research Building for the University of Illinois at Chicago as well as the relocation planning and remodeling in adjacent facilities for existing research operations displaced for construction of the new facility and for reassignment of other University units.
The selected architect/engineer will be commissioned to provide professional services for the completion of a new College of Medicine Building and to act as the master architect responsible for the management of one or more other architectural firms providing services to complete all relocation planning and remodeling.
The proposed College of Medicine Research Facility (COMRF) will be approximately 294,600 GSF, overwhelmingly assigned to research laboratory and support functions. The new facility will house researchers from the departments of Biochemistry, Microbiology and Immunology, Pharmocology, Physiology and Biophysics, and Pathology, plus clinical researchers working with funded researchers in those departments. It will also provide facilities for interdisciplinary research. The new building will contain some unfinished shell space dedicated to future demand for additional research space.
Initial commission may be limited, based on planning funds available.
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
Business presence in Illinois
