The University awarded a contract for construction services.
This emergency/quick purchase was required due to a situation in which public health or safety was threatened.
This emergency purchase is necessary to protect adjacent property, university property, pedestrians, parking patrons, and prevent further damage to all structures. Ashton Woods Apartments serve students of the UIUC Campus. The structures must remain open to adequately serve the housing needs of the campus and the students who have planned use of the structures. Closure of the apartments is not acceptable to University Housing or the residents who live there. Brick veneer demolition and repairs to the buildings will be phased in such a way that residents can safely stay in their apartments. The University has taken steps to move as quickly with the remediation as possible, without sacrificing quality of design and repair steps to ensure we have fair pricing for the repair services being procured.
This affidavit supports the emergency purchase from Felmley-Dickerson Co. for construction services necessary to protect adjacent property, University property, pedestrians, and residents at University of Urbana-Champaign Ashton Woods Apartments located at 2221 South First Street (Apartments Office), Champaign. Emergency repairs to all 13 structures are necessary to remediate and secure the failing façade and to keep the apartments open and safe for the residents.
