In accordance with the North Campus Master Plan and under the provisions of a gift agreement for the Grainger Engineering Library Information Center, the University is obligated to demolish certain adjacent buildings and relocate underground utilities in order that the engineering quadrangle can be developed. This phase of the project relocates the steam tunnel down Burrill Avenue, south of Engineering Hall, and connects with the existing steam tunnel west of the Metallurgy and Mining Building. This relocation allows the demolition work to proceed. The next phase of the project demolishes the required buildings, relocates utilities, rough grades, and establishes lawn in the open space. Funds are available from State appropriations for Fiscal Year 1993. A schedule of the bids received and a description of the alternate have been filed with the secretary of the board for record. (Note: A proposal for the general work was received from Roessler Construction Co., Rantoul, on its base bid of $815,429. The firm has notified the University of an error in its bid and requested permission to withdraw it, since, due to the error, the firm could not fulfill its contractual obligation without suffering economic hardship. The architect/engineer and the Office for Capital Programs have determined that there is clear and demonstrable evidence that the bidder made a bona fide error in the preparation of the bid, that the error will result in a substantial loss to the bidder, and have recommended that the bidder be allowed to withdraw its bid. Further, the architect/engineer has talked to Felmley-Dickerson Company, Champaign, about its bid and was informed that the firm understands all of the project's specified requirements. The university counsel has stated that, under these circumstances, the University's regulations allow the University to permit the withdrawal.)
