BOARD OF TRUSTEES
(The student advisory vote was: Aye, Mr. Begovich, Mr. Lawless; no, none.)
Amendment to Architectural/Engineering Contract, Grainger Engineering Library Information Center, Urbana
(27) On July 11, 1991, the board authorized the employment of the firm of Woollen, Molzan and Partners, Inc., Indianapolis, Indiana, for the professional services required through the design development phase of the Grainger Engineering Library Information Center, Urbana. On October 10, 1991, the board authorized an amendment to the firm's contract to include the professional services required for the construction documents phase, the bidding phase, the construction phase, and the warranty period. It is now necessary to employ the firm for the professional interior design services required for the movable furnishings, fixtures, and equipment for the project. Accordingly, the president of the University, with the concurrence of the appropriate administrative officers, recommends the employment of Woollen, Molzan and Partners, Inc., to provide the professional interior design services required for the furnishings, fixtures, and equipment (estimated to be $2.2 million) for the Grainger Engineering Library Information Center, Urbana. The cost of these interior design services will be billed on an hourly basis, the total not to exceed $190,000, plus authorized reimbursables estimated to be $25,000. Gift funds are available through the University of Illinois Foundation. A schedule of the firm's hourly rates has been filed with the secretary of the board for record.
On motion of Dr. Bacon, this recommendation was approved by the following vote: Aye, Dr. Bacon, Mr. Boyle, Mr. Downey, Mr. Grabowski, Mrs. Gravenhorst, Mr. Lamont, Ms. Reese, Mrs. Shepherd; no, none; absent, Mrs. Calder, Governor Edgar. (The student advisory vote was: Aye, Mr. Begovich, Mr. Lawless; no, none.)
Acquisition and Easement of Land, St. Mary's Road, Champaign
(28) The University has need for that part of the south half of St. Mary's Road right-of-way which abuts St. Mary's Cemetery between the Illinois Central Railroad right-of-way and Griffith Drive which is not now University-owned land. The land now contains improvements, including pavement, ditch, sod, drives, and fences. The land area is about 0.157 acres. The University proposes to improve and widen St. Mary's Road, similar to the adjacent sections of University-owned St. Mary's Road, on the above-described land. The University has participated in the development of the remainder of the existing St. Mary's Road. The current owner, Saint Mary's Roman Catholic Congregation of Champaign Illinois, is willing to sell the above-described real estate to the University for one dollar ($1) plus the guarantee of an easement for two existing driveways for the cemetery access and for existing fences to remain in place to protect the cemetery, if the University purchases said real estate. Accordingly, the president of the University, with the concurrence of the appropriate administrative officers, recommends that the University enter into an agreement with Saint Mary's Roman Catholic Congregation of Champaign Illinois to acquire the property as outlined above. In addition, the chancellor at Urbana recommends that the easement be granted and approved as set forth in the following resolution.
