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 follows the original emergency purchase on BAU18033. This second emergency purchase is required due to the conditions listed on the attached. The request for an extension of time to the original emergency purchase was submitted but due to insufficient time available for a public hearing as required by Code, a second emergency purchase had to be completed.

This affidavit supports the emergency purchase from Felmley-Dickerson Co. for continued 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. 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. Emergency repairs to all 13 structures are necessary to remediate and secure the failing fa�ade and to keep the apartments open and safe for the residents.

On Friday, September 1st, the brick fa�ade collapsed on the Northwest side wall of Ashton Woods Unit #2319 failed, damaging areas adjacent to the structure. An assessment confirmed the potential for masonry failures that posed risks to pedestrian safety, patron safety, and adjacent property. Many delays have been experienced on this project to date and are summarized on the attached.
