Project Description
The Board of Trustees of the University of Illinois is seeking a Professional Services Consultant for the design (schematic through construction documents), bid/award, construction, and warranty phase services for the Multiple Building - Life Safety Upgrades project.

As part of the ongoing attention to deferred maintenance, surveys have identified buildings which do not meet current building codes in terms of life safety for the building?s occupants. The work included in this project includes fire alarm system replacements in two buildings where fire alarm systems have become obsolete and for which replacement parts are no longer available and installation of automatic fire suppression (sprinkler) systems in two buildings which require sprinklers to eliminate building code violations in a number of areas, including meeting code requirements for proper and safe means of egress in the buildings.

See the attached file for more information.
