UNIVERSITY OF ILLINOIS
Employment of Architect/Engineer, Renovation of Materials Research Facilities, Urbana
(17) The University of Illinois has received a $3,903,319 grant from the U.S. Department of Education for renovation of the materials research facilities at the Urbana campus. The project will consist of installing fire alarm control systems, improving accessibility for the handicapped, installing computer networking systems, providing a year-round air conditioning system, replacing windows, upgrading laboratory services and fume hoods, and remodeling to accommodate a molecular beam epitaxy laboratory. The work will be performed in the complex of buildings including the Materials Research Laboratory, the Coordinated Science Laboratory, the Loomis Laboratory, and the bridges which join them. In order for the work to proceed, it is necessary to employ, subject to approval by the U.S. Department of Education, an architect/engineer to provide the professional services necessary for the planning and construction of the project. Accordingly, the president of the University, with the concurrence of the appropriate administrative officers, recommends, subject to approval by the U.S. Department of Education, that the firm of Henneman, Raufeisen and Associates, Inc., Champaign, be employed for the professional services required through the construction phase of the project. The firm's fee includes the program analysis through bidding phases of this project. The professional services required for the program verification and schematic design phases on an hourly basis will not exceed $42,750; and the design development, construction documents, and bidding phases will be at a fixed fee of $179,500; plus authorized reimbursements are estimated to be $12,000. Funds are available from a U.S. Department of Education grant.
