Project Description
The University of Illinois is seeking professional services consultants for the design, bid/award, and construction administration of a new LEED Silver certified residence hall, Residence Hall No. 2 and the demolition of an existing facility, Forbes Hall. This new LEED Silver building, to be located near the intersection of Peabody Drive and First Street, would offer minimally 450 suites or semi-suites configured rooms appealing to second year and upper class students. It would provide more space and privacy for residents while continuing to foster a sense of community. Each unit is to be approximately 800 gross square feet featuring two double rooms, a living room, and restroom. In addition to student living spaces, floor lounges, public meeting spaces, professional staff apartments, laundry, and mailroom facilities with appropriate storage, and staff offices would also be provided. This new residence hall will continue to incorporate transitional rooms in the design, to help facilitate integration of students with physical disabilities into the mainstream student population. All site related work such as utilities, storm water management and landscaping are inclusive of this project. The professional services consultants will also be asked to review and critique the present concept development report being used to develop the Stanley O. Ikenberry Commons. The professional services consultants are to consider contextural design for this project but more importantly, the final footprint, exterior fa´┐Żade, and exact location should be driven by University Housing?s program needs, site constraints, and phasing of Stanley O. Ikenberry Commons. Once the new Residence No.2 is complete, Forbes Hall will be demolished which will allow for continued development of the site.

Please see the attached files for more information.
