Request for Professional Services Qualifications (QBS): Student Dining and Residential Programs Building
First published Friday, January 13, 2006
Project Description
The Board of Trustees of the University of Illinois hereby requests qualifications from professional services consultants to provide professional services in connection with the Student Dining and Residential Programs Building.

In December, 2004, a feasibility study was initiated which sought to evaluate the options for modernizing the Champaign Residence Halls, located in the block defined by Fourth Street, Peabody Drive, First Street, and Gregory Drive. The feasibility study recommended a multi-phase redevelopment plan, which includes the consolidation of the current dining and residential support spaces into a new student dining and residential programs building, as well as the construction of a series of new residence halls, to be executed over a series of phased efforts over an extended period of time.

The Champaign Housing Redevelopment--Phase One project will address the need for a new Student Dining and Residential Programs Building, as well as a single, new Residence Hall. In addition, it will address various utilities issues on the site, as well as demolition of some existing buildings.
Letter Submission
Qualifications and supporting materials will be accepted at the address below until 4:00 PM, Monday January 30, 2006:

Student Dining and Residential Programs Building. This facility, to be located at the corner of Gregory Drive and Euclid Street, will replace two existing dining facilities on the site. The facility is being designed to include a 'marketplace dining' concept, incorporating multiple food stations providing varied cuisines. It will be flexible enough to be adaptable to meet future dining trends and accommodate some catering events, while addressing the varied dining needs of 3,600 students.

In addition, the student dining and residential programs building will be a 'one stop' student service location, providing an advanced technology and library commons with 24-hour access, space for living and learning communities, group study, student programming and activities, and various student organizations.

The student dining and residential programs building will be the first facility constructed on the site; demolition of an existing facility will be necessary prior to the construction of this building.

Procurement of Professional Services
The University of Illinois has employed a professional team of consultants, lead by the Design Architect Booth Hansen (Chicago), to execute the Schematic Design and Design Development phase services for the Champaign Housing Redevelopment - Phase One effort. Upon completion of the design development phase of work, the University will employ two separate architects of record, one associated with the student dining and residential programs building and one with the new residence hall, to execute those design documents generated by the design architect. This advertisement is for the architect of record for the student dining and residential programs building.

It is anticipated that advertisement for the architect of record services for the residence building will occur in the fall of 2006.

The architects of record will provide construction documents, bidding and award, construction administration, and warranty phase services. The design architect will be retained to provide reviews of the work generated beyond design development by the architects of record, at 50% construction documents and 95% construction documents, and will not be eligible to provide architect of record services.

The architect of record must meet all selection criteria, including items described below under 'minimum qualifications.' In addition, the architect of record, at the time of submittal of qualifications described herewith, must indicate the intended provider of M/E/P services, as well as the intended food services consultant. Submittals that do not include this minimum declaration will not be considered. The University will contract with a firm based within the state of Illinois.
