Division 4 has been merged with Division 3 for prioritization and to correct the initial bid. The majority of the scope of work is Division 3 and should have been the prime division. Division 4 work is significantly less and should be the sub prime division. It is anticipated that there will be more participation from Division 3 contractors and more competitive pricing if the hierarchy is reversed.

A MANDATORY pre-bid meeting will be held in College of Medicine West Tower, 1853 W. Polk (S.E. corner Polk & Wolcott), Room 527 on 06/25/19 at 1:30 PM prevailing time. Representatives of the Owner and the Professional Services Consultant will be present to answer questions regarding the project and bidding procedures. All prospective bidders are REQUIRED to attend.

This Project is located at: Medical Sciences Building (#935, Spaces E170 & E180) 828 S Wolcott, Chicago, IL
