Project Description
Illinois State University is seeking statements of qualifications from architectural firms interested in providing design and construction administrative services for the installation of a new partial roof system on Science Laboratory Building on the main campus. Work will include the removal of the existing roof and replacement with a new membrane roofing system. The estimated cost for this project is $400,000.

The Science Laboratory Building houses laboratories and faculty research offices for the Biology and Chemistry departments. The building was opened for classes in 1996. The roof of this building will be replaced in phases, with the south part of the building (over the Biology Department) being replaced first. This proposed project is essential to maintaining the exterior envelope of the facility and extending its useful life. There are a number of roof penetrations for consideration during design and construction. Coordination will be required to facilitate work and scheduled with appropriate ISU staff.

Design firms interested in submitting their qualifications should have demonstrated knowledge and experience with roof replacement projects. The architects and their consultants will be responsible for developing a complete project budget as their design progresses.
