Project Description
The University of Illinois is seeking professional services for design, construction administration through warranty for the following project.

The original Burrill Hall Building built in 1957, housing the School of Molecular and Cellular Biology is in need of a systems upgrade. This upgrade for Burrill Hall is outlined in the Burrill Hall-Master Plan Feasibility Study as Phase 7, Renovations of the First Floor General Recommendations. These renovations are categorized in the building deficiency report as integrity, building code and accessibility items and offers solutions that are more current with campus standards. Ranking 17th in energy in energy usage on Campus, Burrill Hall is in need of mechanical, utility and plumbing upgrades. Replacing and updating equipment and/or parts to the many systems will aid in energy reduction and system reliability. These include, but are not limited to new supply air units with modified air distribution and updated controls, new hot water storage tanks, new sump pumps and modifications to the steam, condensate, chilled water, condenser water and the heating water systems. The life safety work for this project includes a wet fire suppression system for the first floor, a fire notification system, safety glass and other life safety components. All these things are necessary to provide code-compliant egress paths and to enhance the level of safety for the users. Given the age of the building, the interior work involves a great amount of asbestos abatement suspected in the floor tiles, ceiling tiles and pipe/equipment insulation. Once complete, the common corridor space of the First Floor will be in need of new flooring and a new ceiling system including energy efficient fixtures.

Please see the attached files for more information.
