Program: 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 will feature a 'marketplace dining' concept which shall incorporate multiple food stations providing varied cuisines, it shall respond to a la carte menus, offer declining balance meal plans, and late night dining options. It shall be flexible enough to be adaptable to meet future dining trends and accommodate some catering events. This facility has been programmed to address the varied dining needs of 3,600 students.
In addition, the Student Dining and Residential Programs Building is intended 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 has been programmed at approximately 144,000 gross square feet (72,700 gsf dining, 43,900 gsf residential programs, 27,800 support/mechanical). It is anticipated that this will be the first facility to be constructed on the site. Demolition of an existing facility will be necessary prior to the construction of this building.
New Residence Hall: This facility, to be located immediately south of the Student Dining and Residential Programs Building, represents the first residence hall replacement facility on the site, and it has been programmed as a four-story building, providing approximately 450 beds at approximately 132,000 gross square feet.
The New Residence Hall will be built in two separate phases of construction (referenced here as Phase I and Phase II). The entire 450-bed facility will be designed at this time, through Design Development. Phase I (description below) will be fully executed through Construction Documents, Bidding & Award, and Construction Administration. Phase II activities (beyond Design Development) will be determined at a later date.
Phase I of the New Residence Hall has been programmed to provide 220 beds, including accessible living spaces for 26 students with severe physical disabilities and their personal assistants (students currently residing on campus at Beckwith Hall). The remaining space will be designed to meet the needs of first and second year students. The students relocated from Beckwith Hall will be accommodated on the first floor; other student residences are programmed for the second, third, and fourth floors. Phase I of the New Residence Hall has been programmed at approximately 70,000 gross square feet.
The New Residence Hall will address students' preferences for double occupancy, suite-style rooms, semi-private bathrooms, and air-conditioned living environments. Support spaces, including common lobbies and meeting rooms, will also be provided. An architectural 'link' between the Residence Hall and the Student Dining and Residential Programs Building will be incorporated into the design, providing closed, environmentally controlled pedestrian access between the two distinct facilities.
Design Guidelines: The Design Architect will be employed to assist the campus in the generation of design guidelines specific to the overall Champaign Redevelopment Plan, to be implemented over a series of phased design and construction initiatives, as necessary, over an extended period of time.
Related Work: Utilities work and selected demolition work responsibilities are to be determined.
Procurement of Professional Services
The University of Illinois seeks to employ a professional team of consultants, led by a Design Architect, to execute the Champaign Housing Redevelopment - Phase One effort. The successful Design Architect team will be employed by the University of Illinois to provide Schematic Design and Design Development phase services. Upon completion of the Design Development phase of work, the University will employ two separate Architects of Record, through a similar qualifications based selection process, 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.
The Architects of Record will provide Construction Documents, Bidding & 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.
The Design Architect will not be considered to provide subsequent services described under the domain of the Architect of Record.
The Design Architect must meet all selection criteria, including items described below under 'Minimum Qualifications.' In addition, the Design Architect, 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.
Additional information: Student Dining and Residential Programs Building: Upon completion of the Design Development documents the University, at its discretion, may elect to retain some or all of the consultants to the Design Architect. The Design Architect, however, will be relieved of primary contractual responsibilities at the conclusion of the Design Development phase, consistent with the terms noted, above.
New Residence Hall: Upon completion of the Design Development documents, the University intends to terminate primary contractual responsibilities with the Design Architect and its consultants. The Architect of Record will be expected to submit the qualifications of a team that shall include all necessary consultants and/or sub-consultants.
Construction Manager: It is the intent of the University to employ a Construction Manager to provide pre-construction and construction phase services for all Champaign Housing Redevelopment - Phase One work.
Architects of Record: The University intends to restrict the future Architects of Record to those firms based within the state of Illinois.
