    There will be two separate contracts for this project, one for the Architect (A/E) and one for the Construction Manager (CM).

Silver LEED accreditation by the US Green Building Council is a mandatory minimum. The proposed team shall include at least one LEED-certified design professional and one LEED-certified field construction professional that will work with the university’s LEED administration.


    It is the University’s intention to have professionals in the disciplines of architecture and construction management to submit proposals as teams consisting of one architect and one construction manager. These teams must be exclusive. The University will accept only one proposal from each exclusive team (Architect and CM). Architects and CMs must not be on more than one team. Any firm appearing on more than one team will not be considered.

    The proposal must be divided into one Architect section and one CM Section not to exceed 40 total pages including one letter of application and qualification statements for the Architect and CM as described below. Each proposal must include a Letter of Intent between the Architect and CM reflecting the formation of a partnership or other legal entity for the project in order to be considered. Pages must be numbered consecutively.

    The selected architect and construction manager will provide program verification, design, construction documents, and construction administration services for the project with a two (2) year warranty. Blanket professional liability insurance for the Architect will be required for this project in the amount of $2,000,000 and will be provided as a part of Basic Services.
